Good morning guys! Another day, another collection....at least that's what it feel like around here lately! Today I have the Zoya Feel Collection for Winter, it's 6 gorgeous soft creme polishes. I was a bit on the fence with this collection until I got them and swatched them. I have such a soft spot for shades like this, they are muted enough to be appropriate for work and they are flattering on a variety of skin tones.
Avery is a creamy yellow toned beige shade. I was a bit scared of this in the bottle, it looked like foundation. Once on, oh wow! This is actually my favorite of the collection, go figure! I love a good nude polish and while this isn't mannequin hands for me it might just be my new favorite nude. I used 2 coats for the photos below (more on the formula of all of these at the end of the post!)
Carey is a medium blue toned grey. Zoya's website describes it as periwinkle grey. I'm not sure how unique this one is but it's gorgeous! I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Kendal is a very muted/greyed out lavender. I think this might be the lightest purple you could probably get. It reminds of something Essie would do but I don't think I have anything from them that is quite this light. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Kennedy is a pink toned beige-y nude shade. I don't love this on my skin tone unfortunately, which is odd because usually pink toned beige is what I like best. Even though this isn't the greatest on me I'm sure it will look fantastic on a ton of other skin tones! I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Kristen is a pale blue grey. I love this one, it's such a gorgeous shade. I've been waring it for a couple days with Essie Shine of the Times over it and it's gorgeous! Out of everything in this collection I have a feeling I will be grabbing for this one the most. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Megan is a light grey, Zoya says it's a taupe grey. It feels like the lighter version of Carey to me. This was my least favorite, I just feel like I've already got so many grey polishes similar to it. If you don't though this is a great one! I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Overall I LOVE this collection, sure the shades might have been done before but I love creamy soft neutrals like this. They are perfection for Winter and even for Spring, I could see something like this as a Spring collection also. Formula wise all of them except for Megan were on the thick side, I didn't have issues applying them. My best advice is to make sure you get a lot of the polish off the neck of the brush before you start putting on the polish and you should be fine. I've heard some complaints about the formula on these and maybe I'm a weirdo or something but I actually prefer polishes like these that have a thick formula...they are easier for me to work with. My one issue was the formula on Megan, it was on the thin and watery side so I had some trouble controlling it, but it was still opaque in 2 coats!
My picks from the Feel Collection are Avery and Kristen, the others are all gorgeous too if you are in the market for neutrals like this! When I was just starting out with
The Feel Collection is available now on Zoya.com for $8 each, I'm not sure if/when they will be at Ulta. Speaking of Ulta, has anyone noticed that Ulta has started carrying some core Zoya shades? I noticed when I was there the other day, it made me happy! I already had all the shades they had out but I just like seeing Zoya places that are easily accessible because I love the brand!
