Zoya Spring Collections 2015

March 02, 2015

I am lucky enough to sometimes be sent Zoya polishes for consideration HOWEVER on this occasion I purchased these three myself.

As I've mentioned before Zoya is my favourite 'natural' polish brand. They are 5 Free and cruelty free, both of these attributes are a big plus in my book. Not only that but they are also my favourite formula to apply, I am awful at applying polish but even I manage a reasonable job with them, you could say Zoya are Rachel proof!

(Apologies in advance for my 'rachet' nails and poor polish skills!!)

Zoya has released two new collections for Spring 2015 - the bright and beautiful 'Delight' collection and the sophisticated 'Satins' collection.

Personally I wanted to buy every. single. polish from both collections but I resisted the urge to splurge and (somehow) only bought three.


From the Delight collection I picked up the cotton candy coloured blue and green:



Lilian is described by Zoya as a 'faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish'. 



It is really lovely shade, perfect for getting in the spring mood!



The simply beautiful Tiana is described as 'a pistachio gelato green in a glossy cream finish'. 


This is an almost exact dupe for the Butter London polish I bought over a year ago and had an awful experience with. I loved the colour but the coverage was shocking and the application streaky. I'm so glad to have this colour again and in a FAR superior formula.



Next up is the stunning Satins collection:


Again, I wanted all the colours but I stuck to just one... although I may yet go back for more!

I went round and round in circles before finally settling on Tove, 'a misty slate grey cream in the exclusive satin finish.' Zoya state that the Satin Formula is a hybrid between matte and glossy polishes and is not intended to be worn with a top coat.

I love this, I feel it is a 'transition' shade between dark winter colours and light spring shades. It's a very 'office appropriate' shade and I love the formula. I was worried it wouldn't work so well being a semi matte shade but I needn't of worried!

The only warning I would give is that it shows up every lump or bump on your nail, I have ridges on my nails and it doesn't help to cover them up unlike 'normal' polish. It doesn't bother me though, I still love it!
You can pick up these polishes from a few places including Lucy Rose.

    Gorgeousness! I'm always blown away by how much better Zoya works for me than way more expensive brands like Butter London!
