Zoya’s Naturel collection

This was the first regular Zoya collection to have the price-per-bottle increase to $9. So while I was attracted to the colors, I wasn’t thrilled about paying so much per bottle. The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure lineup had many similar polishes in its core line, and while I couldn’t match the polishes exactly without owning the Zoya ones, I did my best…and waited for the Earth Day promotion, when I’d be able to get these at 50% off. $4.50 is a quite doable price.

The formula on these polishes was okay, but just a little bit thin. I did two-coat manicures with all five of the polishes I bought from this collection, and while the coverage wasn't "French tip manicure" sheer, there were a few lighter areas visible for all of the polishes. Since nail polish thickens over time, I'm hoping that the problem may be self-correcting. Most of these were slightly warmer in tone, with three very obviously rose-toned neutrals. I think this might have been Zoya's conscious attempt to tap into consumer readiness for nudes and naturals, especially rose-toned nudes like Urban Decay's Naked3 palette.

This collection contained:

  • Brigitte — mauve-rose creme
  • Chantal — warm beige creme
  • Normani — milk-chocoate creme
  • Odette — bordeaux-mauve creme
  • Rue — buff-pink creme
  • Taylor — creme
