Right on the Nail ~ Zoya 2015 Naturel Satins Collection Swatches and Review: Part I

*press samples*

Tonight I finally have some of the Zoya Naturel Satins collection which is the transitional collection of 6 polishes between winter and spring. This year the colors are more varied, but still quite muted. To start it off, I just want want to say that these are not my favorite polishes, nor are they my least favorite. I thought I was going to love them more than I do, but I just can't get past the formula and application to give them my full approval. All of the polishes only needed 2 coats, but on the second coat, you really need to make sure that you use more polish than you think you'll need because it will get uneven and streaky. You'll be able to see this in my pictures. I also had a problem with them fully drying. I got lots of little dents throughout the day, but a friend of mine had no problems at all (and she really loved these). I guess it really just depends on body chemistry. The finish is definitely satin, which is to say that there is a bit of shine, but not as much as a regular polish (it sort of looks like semi-gloss paint). 

Zoya Brittany (2 coats)

Brittany is a soft pink/ mauve color. 

Zoya Leah (2 coats)

Leah is an interesting color. In some lights it looks more purple and in others it appears more grey.

Zoya Sage (2 coats)

Sage is, well, sage green. As you can tell, this is darker than the others and was one of my favorites of the collection.

You can find these and other Zoya polishes at your local Ulta store, salon, or for $9. What are your thoughts?
