|Zoya 2017 Naturel 3 Collection |
[L->R] Tatum, Cathy, Jill, Mary, Debbie, and Gina
Hey guys! Happy New Year! (Question - at what date do you stop saying HNY? Asking for a friend.) At the beginning of each year, Zoya releases a transitional collection filled with neutral and nude polishes. Today, I have the Naturel 3 Collection to share with you. This year, the collection is primarily nudes and browns. Check them out after the jump!
If you'd like to check out my reviews of the previous Naturel Collections: click the following links to check out the Naturel (part 1) and Naturel Deux (part 2) and Naturel Satins collections :]
First up is Tatum, a "medium light nude cream with a warm base". This isn't the best color for me, I feel like it really brings out the redness in my hands. I'm sure someone out there will be the perfect color match for this nude!
I did 2 coats of Tatum. No issues with application. This cream formula was quite opaque and was very easy to build up for a nude creme. Dry time was great!
Zoya Cathy is a "light pinky nude cream". This is a nice nude for me, however I do prefer my nude polishes to be slightly lighter. I think the touch of pink does a good job neutralizing the redness in my hands. I can see myself using this one every now and then :]
I did 2 coats of Cathy. Again, it was a nice smooth and opaque formula. It was very easy to build up and had a great dry time for a nude polishes. Can't complain!
Next up is my favorite polish in this collection. Jill is a "lighter mauve cream nude". I LOOOOOOOVE mauve polishes. They look awesome on almost everyone and are so classy looking. Can't go wrong with an awesome mauve creme polish!
I did 2 coats of Jill. This polish was super opaque and very easy to apply. No issues with dry time and I almost feel like this is the quickest drying polish in this collection.
Zoya Mary is a "medium raisin cream". I feel like the "raisin" is very subtle in this one and it strongly leans on the brown side. This is a nice polish if you're looking for a neutral type of nail color without having to go for a nude.
I did 2 coats of Mary. No issues with this polish. Like the ones above, it had a very nice opaque creme formula. Dry time was also without any issues. I have no complaints about the formulas in this collection!
Up next is Debbie, a rich "plum brown cream". This one reminds me more of a raisin shade than Mary (above). At first glance it seems like a dark brown but I feel like if you concentrate longer, you can really notice the purple.
I did 2 coat of Debbie. Application was great and the formula was without any problems. I feel like this formula was just a tad thicker than the rest of the collection, which I almost prefer more. No problems with dry time, dried just as quick as the others.
Zoya Gina (damn, Gina!) is a "medium brown neutral cream". This reminds me of chocolate! It sure is smooth like a nice piece of chocolate. If I still did nail art on a regular basis, I can see myself reaching for this one often to use in nail art.
I did 2 coats of Gina, like the rest of the collection. Didn't run into any issues with this polish. We are 6 for 6 with perfect creme formulas with perfect dry times!
And welcome to Zoya 2017! I'm not a big fan of neutral collections, this one isn't my favorite but I don't hate it. If I had to chose a top 3 I'd have to pick Jill, Cathy, and Gina. Any of these polishes catch your eye?
I will return in about a week (pending a breakout on my face -.-) with swatches of the Naturel 3 Collection lip sticks
I can't wait to see what Zoya has in store for us this year!
Love ya lots!
