Zoya Naturel Satins5:00 AM
Today I have swatches of the new Zoya Satin collection for you. According to the Zoya website the satin formula is a hybrid between matte and glossy polishes and is not intended to be worn with a top coat. They actually do dry semi matte and I didn't use any top coat for my swatches. I found them to be very easy to apply, each is shown with two coats, and they dried fairly quickly considering. Obviously with no top coat you'll have to wait a bit longer for dry time (I usually use a fast dry TC) but they didn't seem to take an extraordinary amount of time. I really loved the finish. I do love matte finishes but this is a nice low sheen so it's good for people who want to mix things up but don't care for the matte look. It's also a great alternative to a nude manicure if you're looking for a professional look or something more low key. The colors are really flattering as well. The finish reminds me of a matte topcoat after a few days when the matte starts to get semi shiny. I also found them to have just a TOUCH of pearly sheen to them. Without further a do, here they are!
Ana is a light toasted almond cream.
Brittany can be best described as a rose mauve cream.
Leah is a lavender tinged taupe cream. I really loved the color of this one. It's a really interesting color and was super flattering on me.
Tove is a misty slate grey cream. This was a favorite for me as well. It's sort of a nice blue grey.
Rowan can be best described as a suede taupe cream.
Sage is a mossy sage green cream. This one was my absolute most favorite of the bunch. I LOVE greens and this one is just so soft and pretty. Which one is your favorite?
