Lovely Spring 2013 Zoya Collection

6:39 PM


So glad to finally be able to show you all the Lovely Spring 2013 Zoya Collection today! These beauties arrived while we were on our holiday vacation. Such beautiful pastels! The second I laid my eyes on them it felt like I just found coveted Easter eggs. They really are lovely. They couldn't have chosen a better name for this collection.

Zoya's Lovely Spring 2013 Collection is a set of six soft shades...three cremes and three shimmers. Their press release called the last three metallics. I don't agree with that. They are much softer than a metallic, they are cremes FILLED to the brim with glass fleck glitter.

Zoya - Piaf, Gie Gie, Julie, Blu, Neely and Jacqueline
(the three shimmers on the left and three cremes on the right)

These colors immediately put me in the mood for spring. They are so soft and welcoming. I was even more excited to receive them in December because I love pastels in the winter time! I mean how can you not? Snow is light, fluffy and whimsical and pastels give me the same giddy feeling. 

I decided to start with the cremes. I wanted to make sure I didn't do the shimmers first. I didn't want to fall in love with them so much that I might have loved the cremes a little less. I should have known better because I've never met a Zoya polish I didn't like. 

This is two coats of Blu.

Blu is a "lucky hyacinth blue cream; full coverage". To me, it looks like a warm blanket wrapped around a newborn baby boy at a hospital. It's that perfect baby powder blue!

Blu makes me feel like I'm floating on clouds. So soft and fluffy. It went on smoothly and without streaks (I find that a lot of white based polishes get streaky but not these). Clean up was perfection. 

In the shade. 

This is two coats of Neely.

Neely is an "earliest spring green cream; full coverage". Spring green is the perfect description of Neely. It is the exact thing I was thinking when I was painting my nails with it.

Neely made me want to find a field some where and just lay in it. Not that it would be extremely enjoyable in this weather. haha But a field of wild flowers that have barely begun to bloom. Just that soft green color every where. 

Formula and application were no different from Blu. Everything was spot on. Even the color. 

This is two coats of Jacqueline.

Jacqueline is a "perfect magnolia nude cream; full coverage". I never would have picked magnolia nude as my description, but it is a perfect description for Jacqueline. The pictures definitely show it off a bit more yellow than it actually is. 

Jacqueline is such a buttery cream. It's the first yellow to really have taken my breath away. I see myself getting a lot of wear with this color. It really is that perfect shade of yellow that practically anyone can wear.

Zoya's creme formulas are nothing short of perfection. Never anything bad to say about them.

Since the first three pastel cremes were so spot on, I knew that the shimmers were going to be show stoppers. Each one more lovely than the last.

This is two coats of GeiGei.

GeiGei is a "blushing cherry blossom pink metallic [shimmer]; full coverage". Cherry blossom pink is perfection. No other description would fit this lovely shade. I have a feeling this will be a go to color when I go to the Cherry Blossom Festival this year.

GeiGei glided onto my nails as if it were floating on air. Incredible smooth and easy to work with. 

Look at the way it glistens.

This is two coats of Piaf.

Piaf is a "fresh forsythia yellow metallic [shimmer]; full coverage". I'm not completely familiar with forsythia flowers, but in googling them, I will agree. Definitely not as bright as a daffodil. My initial thought, when I was applying Piaf on my nails, was that it reminded me of the center of a daisy minus the hints of green.

Yup, Zoya has TWO...yes two...gorgeous shades of yellow in one collection. That's almost unheard of! But I wouldn't want this collection any other way. 

I don't think I've ever been able to complain about a single formula or application issue of a Zoya polish. Not that I'm complaining, I just feel that sometimes I'm just being redundant. 

This is two coats of Julie.

Julie is a "soft wisteria purple metallic [shimmer]; full coverage". I've always loved saying wisteria. It's such a whimsical word. Wisteria is definitely the right description, not lavender, not lilac...wisteria. 

Julie is probably my favorite of the six. Just like the other five it went on perfectly leaving minimal clean up. The color is so soft and airy. It was just featherlike and weightless. I don't know if any of that made sense, but it was just how I felt when looking at it. 

In the shade.

Zoya nailed it once again with the Lovely Collection. Beautiful pastel staples that will look good on everyone! With each collection I get, I'm always wondering how Zoya will top their last collection and they always seem to do just that. Each one gets better and better with more surprises in each one. Can't wait to see what they have in store for their pixies in 2013!
