Zoya Petals Swatch and Review

Hey!  How's it going?  I feel like it's been an eternity since my last post.  Today, I have the Zoya Petals collection to review. 
 
First the swatches, then my review.

Press Sample.

Zoya Petals Swatch and Review

 
Zoya Azalea
"Classic spring pink with a captivating white and fuchsia flash."
 
This is one of my favorites of the collection.  My swatch is shown with three coats plus top coat.  The formula on this one was thin at first but built up well.

Zoya Zahara
"Brilliant shimmering coral made modern with an opalescent effect."
 
If you've read my blog before, you know I don't like orange.  This one was okay because the iridescent shimmer gave it a great effect that made me forgive it for being orange.  Still don't like it with my skin tone though.

Shown below in three coats plus top coat.

At one point I had a macro of this and I cannot find it.  Soooo....moving on.
  
Zoya Aster
 "Fresh periwinkle with flecks of fuchsia to create a dewy finish, mimicking the look of spring flowers in the morning."  How 'bout that description?  So poetic!

This is another favorite for me.  I love periwinkle. 

Shown below in three coats plus top coat.

 Are you like me?  Did you say to yourself, "This reminds me of Zoya Julie."  That's the first thing that crossed my mind when I started applying it.  So, I took a picture.  Julie is a lot lighter than Aster.  The formulas are very similar.  The shimmer in Julie is silver and the shimmer in Aster is iridescent.

Zoya Tulip
"Pure pastel salmon crème with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic a petal soft finish."

Salmon is my least favorite of all the shades of pink.  My skin draws the orange out in it.  It's a pretty color, but again, I'm not a big fan of orange with my skin.

Shown below in three coats plus top coat.  The formula was nice but the sheen disappears on the nail.

Zoya Laurel
"Warm pastel pink with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic a petal soft finish."

This is a pretty pink for warm skin tones.  The sheen disappears on the nail similar to Tulip.  Shown below in three coats with top coat.

Zoya Leia
 "Sheer opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold.  Just as beautiful alone as it is layered over your favorite spring shades!"

This is a fun topper.  I don't think I'd wear it alone.  I used it over Zoya Tilda.

There's my swatches! 

Remember the Lovely collection from Spring 2013?  That's what the three shimmers remind me of, but instead of just plain silver the shimmer is rainbow-y.  The formulas are a lot like the Lovely collection as well. 

Overall, I like this collection.  The shades are pretty and many would compliment warm skin tones.  I would like to have seen less orange and a green or blue thrown in there.

My favorites are Aster and Azalea.

The Zoya Petals collection can be purchased at Zoya.com and Ulta.
