Zoya Naturel Deux 2014 Collection Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

Zoya Spencer (2 coats)

Spencer is the lightest of the "browns" and is a camel beige cream. I thought this was going to really clash with my skin tone, but I think it works fine. It's probably my least favorite, but that doesn't mean I didn't like it. It would make a perfect palate cleanser.

Zoya Chanelle (2 coats)

Chanelle is a milk chocolate cream color that is perfect for fall. Some may not be a fan of this because it is just too "brown" if you know what I mean. I still like it. 

Zoya Emilia (2 coats)

Emilia is a dark, dusty chocolate cream that never looks black in any light. As you can see, it definitely dries darker on the nail. 

Zoya Madeline (2 coats)

Madeline is a light dusty Rose cream. I really like it, but perhaps someone would say that it is too grandmaish. I don't care, I still like it. This is another one that dries darker on the nail.

Zoya Aubrey (2 coats)

Aubrey (why can't they have an Audrey?!) is a mauve with berry undertones. This sort of reminds me of something OPI would put out. It's a very rich color and another great fall color. 

Zoya Marnie (2 coats)

Whenever I hear or see the name Marnie I always think of the character on Girls. Just me? Anyway, it's the darker of the pinks/purples and is a deep plum cream. It's not dark enough to be vampy, but it is definitely fairly dark. 

You may have noticed that I did not mention anything about the application and formula and that's because they were all the same. Every color was extremely opaque, needing only 2 coats, despite being a "neutral" collection. Whenever I hear the word neutral, I always think sheer. Thank you, Zoya for changing my mind. I think these polishes are different enough from the first Naturel Collection, and you need at least a few of these. My favorites are Chanelle, Madeline, and Emilia.

You can purchase these Zoya polishes right now on their website for $9 each or at select salons or Ulta stores. Stay up-to-date with all things Zoya (often including giveaways and sales!) on Twitter or Facebook.
