W‘re still waiting for spring to officially arrive, but it’s already in bloom for ZOYA with their latest collection blooming with petal inspiration!  The Petals Collection for Spring 2016 includes six spring-perfect shades of pink, periwinkle, coral and a glistening topper to welcome the new season.  Today I’m sharing photos and swatches of this collection, and if you need a little more spring-spiration be sure to watch my fun swatch video of this collection plus spring DIY tutorial on YouTube linked here or shown above.

Let’s take a closer look at this collection:

Aster

Zoya Aster Petals Collection Spring 2016

Aster is described as a “fresh periwinkle with flecks of fuchsia”.  The shade is absolutely stunning in person and gives the nails a fresh “glow from within” look!  The finish is a metallic, and in two coats I was able to achieve full opacity.  The metallic flecks in it are more iridescent as with all of the polishes in this collection so I don’t quite see the fuchsia per-say.  Of the metallic shades this one performed very well and applied easily.

Azalea

Zoya Azalea Petals Collection Spring 2016

Azalea is described as a “classic spring pink with white a fuchsia flash”.  I don’t typically fall in love with bright pinks, but this one is stunning on the nails.  It has just the right amount of shimmer to make it interesting and the formula is one of my favorites from this collection.  This one will go perfect on tips or toes all season long!

Laurel

Zoya Laurel Petals Collection Spring 2016

Laurel is described as a “warm pastel pink”.  There are two “cream” shades in this collection, but both have a hint of metallic sheen to give it a bit more interest.  You can see it if you look closely at the bottle shots, but it is nearly undectectable on the nails unless you get a glint in the sunline.  Laurel is a definitely a beauty and of the two creams this one is my favorite.  In terms of application I found the formula to be a little thicker, but it was still easy to work with.

Leia

Zoya Leia Petals Collection Spring 2016

Leia is described as a “sheer, opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold”.  This shade can be worn alone on the nails or used as a topper to change the finish of another polish in your collection.  I’ve been absolutely obsessed with this shade since she arrived – she really is that gorgeous in person!  I like that it can easily be worn with only two coats for a subtle yet glamorous nail.  The formula is easy to work with and although it would take more than two coats for full opacity I love the results with my nails peeking through.  This one is definitely a spring must-have!

Tulip

Zoya Tulip Petals Collection Spring 2016

Tulip is described as a “pure pastel salmon cream” with a hint of shimmer as well.  Again, the shimmer is very subtle on the nail but it is still present if you catch it in the light.  Although the shade is described as coral, it is a very soft coral, leaning toward what I would want a peach tone to be, so I am definitely loving it!  As with the other cream in the collection, the formula is a little on the thicker side (in comparison with the metallic formula of Zoya’s other polishes) but it is easy to work with and apply.

Zahara

Zoya Zahara Petals Collection Spring 2016

Zahara is described as a “brilliant shimmering coral with an opalescent effect”.  The metallic finish is beautiful, as is the iridescent shimmers, however, the metallic formulation is not as strong as with Aster or Azalea so in two coats it doesn’t quite cover the nail completely.  I am not a huge fan of “orange” colored nail polishes for my hands and this one is a mix between a peach and an orange but it isn’t quite as brilliant on the nails as it looks in the bottle.

      Aster is gorgeous – excellent pick Jessie!! Leia has been my absolute favorite to top off every polish right now – she just adds a little pop of gorg shimmer that is to die for! 😀
