Swatches and Review: Zoya Spring 2013 - Lovely Collection

Hello World.

Today's post is of the Zoya Spring 2013 Collection called the LOVELY collection!!!
I shared the press release of these some days ago, and I'm glad to show you swatches today.

This collection comes with 3 shimmers and 3 Cream polishes.
Here's a collage for ya.


Please Click Read More  below for more pictures and review.



Alright, I will review the Shimmers First as they were my favorite in this collection.
For the sake of not repeating myself, I'd like to mention that these three shimmers had the best formula in this collection. They were all 2 coats with the use of topcoat.

First up is Julie.
Purple, shimmery, and unique! Instant LOVE of course.
This is unlike anything I have in my collection, so Yes I am very happy with it.


Next is Gei Gei. 
Baby Pink, shimmery and so soft. .

This is very feminine and compliments my skin tone


Next is Piaf.
Gold/Yellow with beautiful shimmer in it.

I generally don't gravitate towards colors like this, but this one actually tickles my fancy. Lol.. I Ended up liking it on my nails.



And Now, Time for the Creams.
These are 3 coats each with Topcoat.

First is Blu. 
True to its name it's a soft baby Blue color.


This looks like something a bride would want to wear on her nails to represent something "blue" on her wedding day. 
I LOVE this color so very much. It also reminds me of a new born baby boy. Beautiful color.



Next is Jacqueline.
Definitely as nude as nude polishes come.

I'm not a big fan of "mannequin hands", but this would be a wonderful base color for nail art or an amazing glitter.

Lastly, we have Neely
Mint Green! Soft, beautiful pastel. 
Spring in full effect! 



This makes me want a desert that's mint flavored. So Fancy!!!

And Now I must mention that although I LOVE the colors for all the cream polishes, I Generally don't like the formula on them. They are a bit on the thin side so if you're not careful, you'll flood your cuticles and create a big mess. Use thin coats, and allow each coat to dry a bit before adding another coat. 

The creams left me asking myself  "Are these Zoya Polishes?
I had to use 3 coats for each one, PLUS topcoat to even things out.

I will say, I like that they are not chalky/streaky, and the finished result is obviously still magnificent, so I don't mind much... BUT I Know Zoya has made better cream finishes and these just had me a wee bit sad.

Overall, these colors - the creams and shimmers - SCREAM Spring!!!
Pastel, and beautiful earthy colors - what more does one want?

That's it for now sugars.
