Zoya Petals Spring 2016 Swatches And Review

Disclosure: Contains press samples

Hi everyone!  I hope everyone is having a great spring so far.  Pollen has been at record levels here in the South, so I’m doing all I can to contain seasonal allergies!  However, with pollen come beautiful spring flowers.  I always tell people the best time to visit the South is in the spring…the weather isn’t stifling hot and you’re surrounded by gorgeous azaleas.  Zoya Petals Spring 2016 definitely brings the best of this beautiful time of year.

 

Zoya Petal Spring 2016 - Aster

Aster (three coats):  “fresh periwinkle with flecks of fuchsia”

Zoya Petal Spring 2016 - Azalea

Zoya Azalea (two coats):  “classic spring pink with a captivating white and fuchsia flash”

 

Zoya Petal Spring 2016 - Laurel

Zoya Laurel (two coats):  “warm pastel pink with the slightest hint of sheen”

 

 

Zoya Petal Spring 2016 - Leia

Zoya Leia (three coats):  “sheer, opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold”

 

Zoya Petal Spring 2016 - Leia over Sugar Cakes

Zoya Leia (one coat over Pretty Serious Sugar Cakes)

 

Zoya Petal Spring 2016 - Tulip

Zoya Tulip (two coats):  “pure pastel salmon cream with the slightest hint of sheen”

 

Zoya Petal Spring 2016 - Zahara

Zoya Zahara (three coats):  “brilliant shimmering coral with an opalescent effect”

 

The ugly:  These are a pain to apply.  The cremes (Laurel and Tulip) are finicky…you will definitely need to wait for layers to dry before applying another or you risk dragging the previous coat.  Leia and Zahara are both a bit sheer and still show visible nail line, even after three coats.  These two are probably best as toppers.

The good:  Azalea applies fantastically.  It’s easy breezy in two coats.  Aster isn’t quite as effortless, but the color is totally worth the effort.

Did you have a good Easter weekend?  I spent it drinking mimosas and dyeing Easter eggs…I hope yours was a fun and good as mine was.  I’ll be trying to avoid the pollen yet enjoying what spring brings!

Zoya Petals retails $10 per bottle. Purchase at Zoya.com.
