Zoya: Naturel 3 Collection Swatch, Review, and a Giveaway!

Press Sample

Good morning, dear readers! I hope your week has been off to a fabulous start, whether you're chilling at home between holidays or back to the daily grind at work. Speaking of work, today's blog post features the latest Zoya nail polish collection, Naturel 3 complete with three coordinating lip hues. Thankfully I have never worked somewhere that I had to keep my nails "work appropriate", but I do enjoy wearing neutrals on my nails from time to time. It's a nice change of pace from the glitz and glamour of the holiday nails and the perfect transition as we approach spring. Zoya certainly agrees, and they have followed up their first two Naturel Collections in previous years with this set. Let's check them out!

Cathy
Two coats plus top coat

Cathy is described as a light pinky nude cream, and it certainly is just that! I love this colour for when I don't want my nails to stand out, and I am happy to report the formula is fabulous! Two easy coats reached opacity and I was ready to go about my day!

Debbie
Two coats

A plum brown cream, Debbie is my other favorite from this collection. Even though I used two coats here, I could have gotten away with a single coat with the exception of one nail. There's always got to be one that throws you off, am I right? Debbie applies like a dream, so if you like your neutrals with a little more WOW, Debbie is an excellent choice.

Gina
One coat

Maybe I've been doing far too much baking this holiday season, but I cannot look at Gina without thinking about milk chocolate! A medium brown neutral cream, by fingertips certainly look like they've taken a dip in the melted chocolate in addition to my cookies! Like the rest of this collection, Gina's formula was really creamy and easy to work with, and I only needed one coat for opacity! My nails are currently on the shorter side, so those with longer nails or those who paint with really thin coats may need a second coat of colour.

Jill
Two coats plus top coat

Jill is described as a lighter mauve cream, and I keep flip-flopping as to whether or not I like this shade. In the end, I think it's a nice tribute shade to the Victorian Age and a classy shade to add to one's collection. This applied easily for me, and it definitely needed the two coats for opacity.

Mary
One coat plus top coat

Mary is described by Zoya as a medium raisin cream. It adds a nice touch of colour to keep it from being a brown hue while still staying neutral. It applies really nicely; I have no issues to report about this beauty.

Tatum
Two coats plus top coat

Tatum was a surprising favorite from this collection for me. Described as a light nude cream with a warm base, I was initially expecting to not care too much for the colour, but once I had it on my nails, it was love! The formula was on point as it applies flawlessly, and I'm definitely be grabbing for this one often!

The Naturel 3 collection offers a fantastic assortment of neutral shades, and I am happy to see if give a variety of low to high impact hues. I'm not really convinced you need every one for in your collection, but I definitely recommend picking up a few of them for when you want neutral nails.

In addition to the new six nail polish shades, the Naturel 3 Collection includes the repromotion of three coordinating Perfect Lipstick shades.

Maxwell is described as a deep plum with a subtle metallic fleck in a matte finish. It is definitely the shade you want to be wearing when the focus sound be on your lips! The metallic fleck is a beautiful touch as well!

Cameron is a hydrating nude neutral with a cream finish. I had previously swatched all these Zoya shades this past fall, and as I mentioned then, Cameron was a surprising favorite for me. I wear this shade often as it is my go-to nude!

Paisley was another surprising favorite and is described as an easy to wear blush-rose hydrating neutral cream. It adds a gorgeous hint of colour to your lips!

These Perfect Lipsticks apply very smoothly to the lips, and when I set them, I get roughly 5-6 hours of wear when I have my coffee and a light lunch. They do need touching up when I eat something that rubs up on the lips, like a cheeseburger for example, but I just touch up my lips when needed.

Now for a giveaway! I already had these three lipsticks, so I'm going to send the new set to one lucky reader!
This giveaway is open worldwide to participants age 18 years and older!

  11. I really like Gina and Jill, the rest I'm not sure would really work with my skin tone but I love the Zoya formulas. For me they are usually two coaters and sometimes that second coat is just to even things out since the first was almost perfectly opaque by itself.
