Zoya Delight-- Spring 2015

Zoya Delight-- Spring 2015

  Happy March!!  We're definitely in like a lamb here in the PNW, so the vibrant pastels of Zoya's Spring 2015 collection feel absolutely, perfectly lovely.  The set of six contains three cremes and three shimmers, the latter of which are just outstanding in this late winter sun and tied together by the same iridescent aqua flash.  I'll start with these.  All swatches shown with topcoat.


Zoya Rayne

  Rayne is an icy blue, subtly light and sheer, and the one that best sets off the aqua shimmers.  It's very cool, with something of a monochromatic flash.   Two coats, easy application, standard thickness.  These shimmers are all the best of what Zoya has to offer, formula wise.

Zoya Leslie

  Leslie is a chic, gorgeous lilac, more opaque than Rayne, and so a subtler shimmer.  Two coats.

Zoya Daisy

  The name of this one is Daisy, but it reminds me of daffodils, and it might be the most perfect yellow polish ever created.  It's a beautiful, flattering, wearable shade with a great pigment balance and an even better formula.  The aqua shimmers are subtle and add as much to the depth of this stunner as they do to the ease of application.  It's similar to Spring 2013's Piaf, but... prettier.  Two coats.

  The three cremes in the set are also standard Zoya, formula wise, meaning a little more finicky but certainly not out of this world difficult.  I'll admit they all felt like colors I'd seen before until I got them on my nails.  All swatches are three coats with topcoat.

Zoya Tiana

  There's been a trend away from mint greens and towards pistachio, shades with less blue and more yellow-- good news for those of us whose skin mint draws all the red from.  Tiana walks a fine line between the two (see Zoya Neely for an unapologetically mint green), making it a more accessible and universally flattering yet still very springy shade.

Zoya Lilian

  We've all seen our fair share of light blue cremes, but Lilian, like Tiana, seems to walk a fine line between two standard respective shades-- Tiffany, or robin's egg, blue, and powder blue.  Lilian is more of a true sky blue, again, a more wearable shade for those of us with warmer skin tones.  It's chic and lovely.

Zoya Eden

  If Eden looks familiar to you, you're not alone.  I was almost certain Zoya had duplicated Rooney, from their Tickled collection.  The truth is, this bright, rosy pink falls right between Kitridge and Rooney on the color spectrum.  PIck your favorite.  Eden is lovely, but nothing unique.

  All in all, Delight is a great return to form for Zoya after the dubious Naturel Satins collection and the decline of the PixieDusts.  The shimmers are gorgeous and two of the three cremes quite unique.  My picks are DaisyLeslie, and Tiana.  All are available on zoya.com for $9 each.

Where to find Zoya

  Thank you for reading, have a lovely day!! ♥

  4. I love this collection on you, I think it does work really well with your skin tone! I still love, love Neely (and loved your swatches of it). Nonetheless I still want to make room for some of these too! I bet Leslie matted would be beautiful!

    1. Thank you, love ♥ I think I gave Neely up to someone who could do it justice. These are significantly different, at least the blue and green cremes, that there is surely room in your collection ;) And I think you're right! Gotta try that.

  5. I love this whole collection. I have wanted Lilian since I first clamped eyes on it. Heck, I'd even take Eden even though it's not unique simply because that's one stinkin' pretty pink!! :) My favorite on you is...drumroll please...Daisy. Crazy, no? And your pics are the best I've seen. <3
