Good Morning!! Today I have an awesome new collection to show you guys from Zoya! Zoya is giving us 2 collections for Spring and they are both pretty awesome! They go on sale tomorrow (January 10th) so I thought this would be the perfect time to post them! I'll have the second collection (The Fleck Effect Collection) for you guys tomorrow morning! When I got this collection in the mail I swooned, you guys know that I am a big huge fan of polishes with a gorgeous subtle shimmer and there are a few like this in this collection! This year I've decided to keep a running list of favorites as I swatch and wear stuff so that I'm not scrambling at the end of the year to remember what I've loved....half of this collection is already on that list lol! I really can't wait to see what Zoya has in store for us for the rest of the year if this is how they are starting off!

Bevin is a dusty light green with blue undertones. I love this one so so much, I have a thing for blue/greens like this...they remind me of the ocean! Well, not the ocean in So Cal...but the ocean in the Caribbean...the ocean in So Cal is disgusting looking. Bevin reminded me a lot of one of my all time favorite polishes...Misa Dirty Sexy Money. I pulled it out to compare but Bevin is much lighter, if you loved that Misa you will absolutely love this also. The formula was good not too thick or thin. You are going to want to use thin coats with this, the first time I put it on I used too thick of a coat and it didn't level out very well. I used 2 thin coats for the photos below.
P.S. I know I can't be the only one who feels the urge to watch One Tree Hill now right? It's the only place I've ever heard the name Bevin haha!
Cho is a yellow toned beige with a very subtle silver shimmer. This one is what I wanted The Touch Collection to be, while I loved that collection the shimmer had a tendency to look a little frosty. With Cho the shimmer is so subtle that it just gives a little touch of sparkle in the right light and it doesn't overpower the polish. The formula was a bit thin but it ended up being nice and opaque in 2 coats.
Farah is an opaque light khaki-beige with subtle sandy, greenish undertones. That's the Zoya description and it sounds much better than I could have described it haha! I really really love this one, it's nice on my skin tone...it may even by my new mannequin hands polish! Formula wise it was on the thick side but I didn't have any issues with application and it leveled nicely. I used 2 coats for full opacity!
Lotus is a dusty purple with reddish pink shimmer! Ahhh love love love love, a subtle shimmer lovers dream! It's like Neeka but with shimmer that is somehow even more awesome! The shimmer wasn't super in your face even out in the sun but it gives the polish some dimension and is stunning when the light hits it! Indoors the shimmer was not noticeable but you could tell that it wasn't just a flat creme polish! The formula was good, it started out a little thin but was a bit more on the thick side by the time I got to the second coat...weird how that happens. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Skylar is a dusty medium blue with silver and gold shimmer. The shimmer in Skylar is super super noticeable, in the sun in sparkles and indoors and in low light it is gorgeous too! The formula was a bit thick but very easy to work with. It went on sheer at first but I only needed 2 coats for full opacity!
Tru is a red toned purple with a subtle red shimmer. The shimmer flashes a bit of an orangey gold also! Now I loved Lotus but I love True even more! Red toned purples are my favorite then you throw in awesome shimmer and I just can't even contain my excitement! Tru is my absolute favorite of the collection! I wore this on Friday and got so many compliments on it! The formula was a bit thick but again easy to work with. The shimmer is more noticeable than it was in Lotus but still not super visible in low light...its there just enough to make the polish not look flat! I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Overall I LOVE this collection, Zoya has not been disappointing lately! I know a lot of people are probably like ugh...more neutrals but I'm a fan! The shimmers in this collection are stunning and the cremes are great! My favorites, and the ones already on my 2012 favorites list are Tru, Bevin and Skylar...Lotus is on there also but not as much as Tru!
The True Collection will be available on Zoya.com on January 10th, each bottle retails for $8!
