ZOYA: Spring 2012 True Collection & Nail Art

Pin It I'm still without a charger :[ I probably wont get one for awhile because we just had to spend $80 (just as much as a Macbook charger) for a new router because ours stopped broadcasting a signal. LAME! OOOOOOOH well.

I received the True Collection last week. I would of loved to order it from, 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.

Next, Skylar:

This is the one I was looking forward to the most. Wonderful dusty blue with shimmery fecks!

Zoya Cho:

A nice peachy, brownish nude!

Next, Farah:

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.

Next, Lotus:

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 :]

Dark Red/Wine: Color Club Red-ical Gypsy
Nude: Zoya Cho
Yellow: China Glaze Lemon Fizz
Aqua: China Glaze For Audrey
Red: Zoya Sooki

Enjoy! Until next time,
