Zoya Intimate collection

I, along with everyone who's heard about it I'm sure, have been anticipating the Intimate collection from Zoya since we first started seeing promo images around the end of last year. This spring collection was 
designed to recreate the custom looks developed for and inspired 
by the runways of New York Fashion Week.
I should start with my favorite of the collection, Caitlin. She looks like a lighter and more spring-y version of my absolute favorite Zoya polish ever, Kelly. Two coats equal magic for this light smokey blue-grey crème.
Marley is a polish whose name I totally dig, being a die-hard Bob Marley fan of course :) Very pretty and angelic, she is the lightest baby lavender touched with a hint of gray-silver and a subtle pearl finish. Two coats.
Gemma is definitely another gorgeous pick. I actually wasn't sure I was going to like this color at all, it looked like it was going to be my least favorite from the early pictures I had seen. It is described as a light muted olive green with an overlay of blue and violet duochrome shimmer. Very unique. I adore it and her name! Three coats.
Dannii is a real star and is sure to be a favorite of many ladies out there. Zoya describes her as a medium orchid purple with pink and champagne highlights and flecks of silver metallic shimmer. Three coats for this sexy girl.
Dove is a cousin to Zoya's Harley. She's a light, neutral grey crème that is both trendy and workplace appropriate.  Three coats.
Jules is a color I thought I would absolutely love but I ended up not liking it as much as I thought I would. It's still pretty, but I don't care for it on me. It's a glimmering neutral light taupe with gold, silver and champagne metallic shimmer. Three coats for this sparkler.
All in all, this is a really superb spring collection, with everything you could want really, a duochrome, a purple, a green, a blue, and a variety of finishes. Intimate is available now at zoya.com or at select salons and retail locations.
