Zoya Naturel Satins Collection Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I am bringing you Zoya's transitional season-between-winter-and-spring collection, the Naturel Satins. The finish of these are satin, meaning a hybrid of matte and shiny. They're not glossy, but there's still a hint of shine there. It's not chalky matte, but almost rubbery looking. There is kind of an eggshell texture to them too.

I have heard a lot of people had a tough time with the formulas of these, but I had a ridiculously good experience. They all applied easily and completely on two coats for me. They spread easily, dried quickly but not too much that they pulled up. And I found they self-leveled nicely so they appear very even. I didn't use a top coat with these, as recommended. I can't speak to anyone's experience but mine, and I really loved these.

First is Ana, described by Zoya as a "light, toasted almond." I see this as a slightly pink tinted pale beige. Super lovely and a perfect work appropriate shade.

Next is Brittany, introduced as a "rose mauve". I would agree with that and say it's very pale and slightly dusty. I wore this as a full mani and just adore the way it looks with my skin tone.

This one is Leah, said to be a "lavender tinged taupe". I would've said this was a blanched grey taupe but do see a little hint of lavender when I put it next to a true grey.

Rowan is a "suede taupe" satin, according to Zoya. I'd call this a medium/light taupe with a drop more of brown. I like this one a lot, it's kinda edgy.

Next we have Sage, a "mossy sage green". This is seriously gorgeous in pale satin form.

Last is Tove, described as a "misty slate grey". This pulled really blue on me but retained it's grey-ness. It must be a grey kinda season for nail polish, and I'm loving it!

These are available on Zoya's website for $9 each. I didn't expect to fall in love so hard with this collection. I've always enjoyed neutrals, but this new finish just pushed them over the edge for me. SO great and I hope they put out more colors as "satins". Have you tried these yet? Which shade is your favorite? If I had to pick, it'd be Brittany, but I'm glad I don't have to!

Love ya, mean it!
