I received the True Collection last week. I would of loved to order it from Zoya.com, but because money is tight I bought the collection $10 cheaper on eBay.
I'm in love with all these polishes. All the swatches below are 2 coats, I think they were pretty sheer and could of used a 3rd. Zoya's Spring 2012 True Collection is made up of 6 colors, Bevin, Skylar, Cho, Farah, Lotus and Tru.
First up we have Bevin:
Beaaaaautiful sage green. There has been talk that OPI's Mermaid Tears is a dupe for Bevin. Not true, Bevin is slightly darker, see here. I like Bevin more, I feel like I have a lot of "lighter" greens.
This is the one I was looking forward to the most. Wonderful dusty blue with shimmery fecks!
I consider this the "gray version of Cho", a nude with less of a pink tone.
Here is a comparison in the bottles. I had to prove to my husband they aren't the same haha.
Cho on top, Farah on bottom. Clearly they aren't the same. I honestly think there are two nude-ish colors in this collection because these colors are for different skin tones. That's how I see it, Cho is for cooler skin tones and Farah is for warmer skin tones.
A smokey purple with redish-pink flecks.
Lastly, Zoya Tru:
A darker purple, grape like in color. It has redish-orange flecks through out.
I do love this collection, Skylar and Bevin were the ones I lusted after the most, and they were everything I hoped for. The only complaint I have about this collection is that it is a little sheer. I usually can get away with 2 coats when I use Zoya but these honestly need 3.
As always, I leave you with a full manicure. This was Missoni inspired. I did it all by hand because I was too lazy to get up and get tape haha. I like how it came out, it doesn't look as messy in person SWEAR! I love the color combo :]
