Zoya Naturel Collection

Hi guys! Today I have the Zoya Naturel Collection to show you. This collection is filled with what Zoya describes as "Naturel Rose Tone Nudes". I am not crazy about nude polishes lol. If you haven't noticed my skin has a tendency to look quite red, I feel that nude polishes don't really help me out in that department. But I'm swatching them for you of course! I'm more of a fan of the darker half of this collection. Need a palate cleanser? Check these polishes out after the jump :]
