What is cozy yet fresh, understated yet elegant? The latest transitional collection from ZOYA takes us to a comfy place with their Naturel Satins Collection for 2015. The subtle shades and finish of these polishes are a perfect mesh of soft and snug (winter) and muted and natural (spring), which makes this ZOYA collection very right now.
The satin finish in the collection is perfect for anyone who just can’t quite handle a full-on matte polish because you still get a soft sheen. The formula is fairly consistent (see more notes below) and the finish is said to be more long-wearing than a traditional matte nail polish. Let’s look at more photos and swatches of this between-the-seasons beauty!
A picture-perfect winter/spring mash-up!
There are six polishes in the Naturel Satins Collection (L to R)
- Rowan: Creamy suede taupe
- Tove: Misty slate grey
- Ana: Light toasted almond
- Brittany: Rose mauve cream
- Leah: Lavender tinged taupe
- Sage: Mossy sage green
Closeups & Swatches
Ana – “light toasted almond”
Brittany – “rose mauve cream”
Leah – “lavender tinged taupe”
Rowan- “creamy suede taupe”
Sage- “mossy sage green”
Tove – “misty slate grey”
The Naturel Satins Collection is subtle and soft, and to me the perfect definition of a transitional collection. There are so many favorites I’ve come away with in the collection that I almost feel badly for picking out a few! Rowan is nearing the top of my favorites because it is the epitome of”greige” perfection, and Brittany is just so feminine I can’t resist her! Sage is a stunning muted sage green that reminds me of spring just around the corner, and Tove is the definition of a soft slate grey with a hint of cool tones that looks so sophisticated on the nails.
The formula is fairly consistent throughout, but I do notice that the darker of the shades have a thinner consistency, making the polish much easier to apply. The two lightest shades, Leah & Anna were thicker for me, so application was not as smooth. In addition, I had to apply three coats of Ana for full opacity. The other shades applied very easily and the consistency was perfect. Much like matte shades I found these satin finish polishes to dry quickly, which I love! Please note these Satin finish polishes are not designed to be worn with a glossy topcoat.
Overall I find this collection absolutely beautiful, and now I think this calls for us to invent another season in between winter and spring to celebrate this transitional collection – perhaps we can declare it “Swintering” or “Spinter”! What do you think?
Do you have any favorites from the Zoya Naturel Satins Collection for 2015? I’d love to know!
