Zoya Naturel Deux collection swatches+review

**press sample**
As summer quickly fades into fall, you can count on Zoya to bring a refreshing neutral transition collection - and the Naturel Deux collection is just that! As with the original Naturel collection, these creams just remind me of ice cream. Which is bad for me, cause I'm trying not to eat sweets as much! haha :) Check out my thoughts on this collection after the cut!

For the most part, the formulas on these polishes is flawless. The opacity, for neutral-toned shades is pretty good, too. My first coats were patchy-ish, but the second coat evened everything out to a nice finish - except for one. One of these polishes is a one-coater! I have to say - I love some of these photos based on the simple fact that you can see the sky in my nails! I wasn't going for artsy, but I apparently got it!

I've taken a lot of pictures of this collection. You'll notice four photos for each color - sunlight, shade, indoors with natural light and indoors with flash (in that order, as if you are reading a book). I've done this for several reasons. I want to provide a wide variety of lighting options for you to see how the polish looks.

First up is Spencer, a "camel cream," according to Zoya. This reminds me of a milky caramel.

Now we're to Chanelle, which Zoya says is a  "toasted almond" shade. THIS is the one-coater! Pictured is one coat of this pretty color (that reminds me more of a melted chocolate bar than almonds).

The dark chocolate creaminess of Emilia has made her one of my favorites. However, her photos have turned out the worst of the bunch - I apologize for that. She's still super pretty! I have a post on the horizon detailing my horrors of capturing dark polishes haha

As for Madeline, a "muted rose," according to Zoya, I wore her for 2 days. No top coat? Nope, no top coat. She stuck around for 2 days without chipping with no top coat. I should have taken a picture, but I completely spaced on it.

Zoya describes Aubrey as a "medium mauve," and while I can agree, I think she pulls more grape than mauve suggests. But I digress. This one was super close to being a one-coater.

How about some Marnie? Jeebus, she's gorgeous. Please note: Bottles say "Marney," but the site AND Zoya, both say "Marnie." This "deep warm plum" shade is beautiful... and so very rich. Had I been using swifter strokes, this would have been a one-coater.

This collection is ALL KINDS of beautiful. Will you be picking any of them up? You can order these for $9 each or all 6 for $54 on the Zoya website. Available now.
