Zoya Sailor

Today's polish is Zoya Sailor from their Cashmeres collection of fall 2013.  Feast your eyes!
Two coats of Zoya Sailor

If you're a frequent (or even infrequent) reader of this blog, you are well aware that I am a fan of all things blue so you could probably guess that Sailor is a winner for me.  It is a really great dark smoky blue that is richly-pigmented and was actually opaque in one coat (though I used two in the above pic).  Great formula, great color!

This polish was provided to me for my honest review and consideration.

Zoya Naturel Collection

Here is the Naturel collection by Zoya for winter 2013. It is a variety of nudes and natural-toned shades.
Flynn on thumb, Taylor on index and middle, Chantal on ring and pinky, two coats of each.

Odette on thumb, Brigitte on index and middle, Rue on ring and pinky, two coats of each.

As you can see, Zoya offers nudes and naturals that lean more towards browns and pinks in this collection. My favorites are Odette and Brigitte as I'm not particularly a fan of nudes and these have a more vivid and pink-y hue.  Each applied easily and was opaque in two coats.   

If you're into neutrals, this collection would be worth your time. If you try them, do let me know what you think!
