Zoya Spring 2018 Thrive Collection Swatches and Reviews Part II

*press samples*

Hi guys! I was meaning to post this all weekend, but then I ended up just not doing it. I had all the photos edited, but I couldn't get myself to write the post. I think we all already know I'm a bad blogger. We finished our taxes this weekend, and went to our friend's wedding reception which was fun (the taxes, not so much). Oh, and Happy Easter if you celebrate! You know we went to the grocery store to get that 50% off candy! Also, from what I hear, Easter baskets today have other gifts besides candy in them. Is this a new trend? Like Halloween, it was purely a candy holiday in my day. Anyway, I know you guys have been patiently waiting for the second half of the Thrive Collection. If you like any of the colors, make sure to sign up for this year's Earth Day Exchange going on now (info here) for 50% off and free shipping with code HEALTHY

 Zoya Leisel (3 coats)

Up first is Leisel which is the flake topper from the collection. I don't often wear my polishes as toppers so I went ahead and used it on its own for the photos. It's a light purple flake base with flashes of blue. It reminds me a bit of Leia which has been promoted pretty heavily in the past year. If you want to add a little sparkle to your nails, definitely pick up Leisel. I used 3 heavier coats for full opacity, but you'll only need a thin one to use as a topper. It applied well, and it was easy to remove. 

Zoya Monroe (2 coats)

Monroe is one of those colors that is hard to describe. I even had my husband look at it and give me his opinion. We ended up with it being a currant red with pink undertones. Apparently Zoya just calls it a glamour pink creme. Umm, ok? Huh? I'm going to stick with my vague description. At least it's a little less vague than a glamour pink. Anyway, this one was very pigmented and barely needed the second coat. I didn't have any problem with staining, but just be a little extra careful around the cuticles when removing it. 

Zoya Trudith (2 coats)

Yes, bring on the dusty polishes! Trudith is a dusty wisteria purple creme with grey undertones. This is another top pick from the collection. This one screams spring to me, and I'm still a huge fan of Zoya's creme polishes. It only needed 2 coats for full coverage, and was super easy to remove.

There you have it! What are your thoughts on the Zoya Thrive Collection? Not every one was completely unique, but there are some beautiful spring shades nonetheless. My top picks are Darby, Haruko, and Trudith. Make sure to check out the collection if you participate in the Earth Day Exchange. Zoya polishes retail for $10 and you can find out more about them on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages. Keep an eye out for them in your local Ulta store if you want to see the bottles in person before you buy.
