Spring 2013 Zoya Lovely Collection Review

Tonight, I am bringing to you the Spring 2013 Zoya Lovely Collection.  I sat here and looked at this collection for weeks, wanting to swatch it so bad.  Usually, I like to get the new collections sent to me for review out to you asap.  But, my middle fingernail had broken down into the nail bed twice recently, it still feels weak and sore at this point.  You can still see it's a little shorter and I filed my other nails down as close as I could.  I actually do like the shorter look at times.

Have I said yet how much I love this collection?  As much as I like the darker/jeweltone colors, I am knocked out by the lighter pastel colors that come out in the Springtime.

Piaf - described by Zoya as a forsythia yellow metallic, it was a 
custom runway shade created for fashion designed Zang Toi.  I
used 2 easy to apply coats in this swatch and it has that micro 
shimmer that Gei Gei and Julie has.  This is sure to be a 
popular Spring color.

Gei Gei - a soft baby pink with micro-shimmers.  This formula
was a little on the thinner side, but very easy to work with.  I 
used 3 coats in my swatch.

Julie - another of the pale pastel colors with the micro-shimmer.
Julie's formula was a little thinner and it took 3 coats to be opaque.

Blu - a beautiful baby blue creme, formula was a little thick and
the first coat applied with streaks, but it evened out with the 2nd coat.

Neely - a pale green creme.  This polish applied a lot like Blu
and Magnolia.  2 coats to be opaque.

Jacqueline - Zoya describes this color as a magnolia nude creme. 
This color and description brings back so many childhood memories
of all the Magnolia trees from my parents home place,
magnolia is a perfect way to describe this color.  This one was tricky to 
apply, it's a little thick and I ended up using 3 coats to achieve opaqueness.

  1. I have never wanted a set of nail polish so bad in my life!

  2. I know a lot of people have been hating on this collection because the colors aren't all that original. I happen to love colors like these and can't get enough of them...they are all gorgeous! And I like the short nails. :)

  3. I have Julie on my toes. I like it and the yellow.
