When I think of Zoya, I tend to think of two things: their gorgeous old-school glass fleck polishes and pretty soft shades and neutrals. The Zoya Spring 2016 release, Zoya Petals, definitely fits in with that second point! This six-piece collection features soft, nearly-pastels, perfect for spring and all of them feature a nice shimmer. When I first saw promos for this collection, I thought it was odd that Zoya included three variations of coral (and really…I still do kind of think it’s odd), but each one is pretty in its own right. Let’s take a peek at the Zoya Petals Collection…
First up is Zoya Aster, a pretty periwinkle-purple packed with pink and blue shimmer. The shimmer here is fierce! This one had a creamier formula than some of the others (more on that later). This is three coats for the sake of the swatch, but you could probably get away with two in real life.
Zoya Azalea is a bright pink packed with a fierce pink shimmer. This is probably my favorite in the collection, and it had the nicest, creamiest formula. This is two coats.
Zoya Laurel is the first of three peachy-coral shades in the Zoya Petals Collection; this one has a strong pink tone to it. The shimmer is super subtle, but visible in some lights. Very pretty and super springy! The formula was runny, but buildable. This is three coats.
Zoya Leia is a clear polish packed with shimmer that flashes fuchsia, green and gold. Here, I’ve swatched three coats on its own, but this would also be fabulous layered!
Zoya Tulip is Laurel’s more salmon-orange cousin with a super light shimmer. This is three coats. Again, the formula on this one was a bit runny.
Finally, we have Zoya Zahara, a orally-orange packed with pink shimmer. This is really pretty but I really didn’t enjoy the formula. This is four coats, though you could probably get away with three in real life.
The Zoya Petals Collection is available now on zoya.com and retailers. Each polish retails for $10. While I really love Azalea, Aster and Zahara, and I adore Zoya as a brand, that price point feels a bit high, especially with the formula issues. But, if you are looking for fun spring shades from a 5-free, cruelty-free, made in the USA company, then these might be right up your alley!
