Zoya Naturel 4: Transitional 2020 Collection Swatches and Review

 

Zoya Naturel 4
Zoya Naturel 4 Collection + Glossy Seal


Zoya Naturel 4 is Zoya's transitional collection - six neutral shades to welcome the transition between winter and spring.  I have most of Zoya's Naturel collections in the past, but I think this is the best one yet, and I believe this is the best 2020 collection from Zoya.  Here are the swatches of the Naturel 4 collection, and my thoughts on these.

I can honestly say that I was so smitten with Zoya Adeline.  It is described as a deep fig taupe cream.  Zoya has one of the best cream formulas out there, and Adeline is no exception.  It glides like butter on the nails, and it is a beautiful color for fall.

I have way too many photos of Zoya Evelyn because I want to showcase how beautiful it is.  I'd have to say that this is one of my best Zoya nail polishes EVER, maybe one of the best polishes, period.  For someone who has almost the entire Zoya line, that is saying a lot.  It is the most beautiful light blush pink cream.  The formula is dreamy and perfect.  I bought my usual coffee and for the first time, the barista noticed my nails and complimented them.  This is a beautiful color that one can wear year-round and will flatter all skintones.

Zoya Barrett is describe as a taupe-violet cream.  This looks like a cool-toned mauve to me.  Another gorgeous cream, and I can wear this again and again and it will always looked beautiful and timeless.

Zoya Cami is another gorgeous color - described as a pale mauve taupe cream.  It is a little darker than Evelyn, but still very neutral and perfect to wear to a conservative office environment.

Zoya Marlowe is described as a duo chrome with rose gold shimmer and slate blue base.  It can be worn alone or layered with other creams to create contrast.  It is a nice winter shade, although the duo-chrome is not as strong as the other duo chromes from Zoya.

Zoya Vivian is described a a dusty grape cream.  I am in love with this polish, as the rest of the polishes from this collection.  It may be because this collection is heavy on the pinks, purples and mauves, which are totally up my alley.  Formula is again luscious and rich; just perfect. 

Zoya Naked Manicure Glossy Seal

Last but not the least, the Zoya Naked Manicure Glossy Seal is my new favorite top coat.  It is the only super glossy top coat that does not smear and ruin my nail art and gives the most beautiful high shine on my nails.  The best thing is that it does all these without toxic ingredients.  I have top coats that do the same thing, but they contain Toluene, which is a known carcinogen.  This will always be my go-to glossy top coat from now on.

All in all, you can see how impressed I am with this collection from Zoya.  As I've mentioned, I think this is Zoya's best 2020 collection.  Zoya has truly mastered and perfected the cream formula.

Zoya polishes retail for $10 each, and the Zoya Naked Manicure Glossy Seal top coat retails for $12, and are available on Zoya.com.

The holiday is upon us!  Once again, Zoya comes up with twelve shades that are just apt for the season.  Here are my thoughts and swatches of the Zoya Holiday 2020 Intriguing Collection.

Zoya Isti is this season's Pixie Dust color.  This is Zoya's signature glittery texturized formula.  I have to say I LOVE this new and reformulated Pixie Dust compared to the past formulas.  It is not as textured which I really love, and my makeup does not transfer my nails unlike the past Pixie Dust formula.  This is a beautiful wintery blue shade.

Zoya Avi is described as a smoky-greige cream with a hint of red-brown.  It is a dusty red-based purple under direct sunlight and I love the formula - super smooth and self-levels effortlessly.

Zoya Meredith is hands-down my favorite in the collection.  Absolutely beautiful, breathtaking midnight sapphire blue that reminds me of the dark winter sky.  This is one of the best shimmery blues I own, which says a lot, because I own a ton.

Zoya Koley is described as a ruby-pink metallic.  I am not a fan of reds in these kinds of finishes.  Looking at the swatches, though, I'd have to say it is quite gorgeous.

My favorites from this collection is Meredith, followed by Nisha and Regina.  The creams behave very nicely and are not finicky at all.  

The Zoya Holiday 2020 Intriguing collection is now up on Zoya.com and retails for $10 a pop.
