Zoya: Charming Collection for Spring 2017

Press Sample

Good evening, dear readers! I hope your week has been off to a fabulous start! For those of you in the northwest, I hope you are staying warm with the snow storm going through. Snow is such a foreign concept to me, especially right now when it's not cold and not a cloud in sight. I'm definitely not cut out for the cold weather, and if you're tired of it by now and ready for a taste of spring, do I have a post for you! Zoya has released their latest spring collection, the Charming Collection and a new lipstick shade that is sure to brighten up your days. Let's check them out!

Two coats plus top coat

A light dewy green micro-sparkle

I know greens aren't always the most well loved colour, but I'm so excited about this beautiful colour! I love the base green shade, and the "micro-sparkle" looks a lot like golden microflakes. The resulting overall look is more of a soft olive. Overall the application was easy although the formula is thinner than what I am used to. It is also a little sheer; those of you with longer nails or who use really thin coats may find you need to use a third coat for opacity.

Three coats plus top coat

A soft blossom pink cream

While this shade of pink is admitedly not the most unique, it is still quite pretty and a great addition to this collection. I found it to be a little patchy with the first two coats, but the third coat evened out beautifully on my nails.

Two coats plus top coat

A dewy violet micro-sparkle

I don't really consider myself a "purple girl" overall, but I adore Millie! I've seen mixed reviews on the new micro-sparkles in this collection, and I have to say I LOVE them! Millie applied so perfectly for me; I had no issues at all with the formula and it it one of my top picks from this collection.

Two coats plus top coat

A light lavender cream

What a great shade for spring! While this isn't my favorite shade, it is a welcome colour. It just can't seem to be spring without some pastels, so even if lighter purples aren't my jam in general, bring them on! It is a little patchy with the first coat, but the second coat evened out perfectly on my nails.

Two coats plus top coat

A soft dewy blue micro-sparkle

Amira is another favorite of mine from this collection. I really dig this finish combined with this shade of blue- it's a sky blue with a twist! The formula is great as well although the colour is a little on the sheer side. If you tend to use thinner coats than I do or if your nails are longer than the shorties I'm currently rocking, you may find you need a third coat for opacity.

Two coats plus top coat

A medium amethyst cream

This is such a great cream polish! It applied nicely right from the first coat with its fabulous formula, and I'm actually digging this shade of purple.

In addition to the six-piece polish collection, Zoya has just released a new lipstick shade to their colour lineup!

I must admit, this colour is a little outside my normal comfort zone when it comes to lipstick. I still can't quite decide how I feel about this colour on me, but there is no doubt that the lipstick applies smoothly and effortlessly to the lips. Even though it isn't a "long wearing" lipstick, it stayed on my lips for over four hours, through a cup of coffee and even a sandwich, before I needed a little touchup. I'm a busy mom, so I can appreciate not having to touch up this lipstick every hour or so!

While the options regarding colour and finish are admitedly small, I do enjoy Zoya's offerings for their customers this spring. Cream polishes are always great for a more classic look while the micro-sparkle finish is fabulous: I know I'm hoping to see more of them in future collections!

The Charming Collection and new Violette lipstick are now available for purchase at Zoya.com. The nail lacquers retail for $10 each while the lipstick is $12.

What do you think of the new Charming Collection? Is there a particular colour calling out to you? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
