Zoya Thrive Collection - Spring 2018

Woo hoo!

New Zoya collection! Spring MUST be coming soon, right?!

Before we just to the colors, let's talk about Zoya's new packaging. Why!? What if you only order 1 polish? How does it arrive now? I am not sure, but as elegant as this is, it seems wasteful to me. Any thoughts?

The polishes come in a gorgeous (but extra) sturdy box with a detailed swatch card.

And here is the group shot:

The collection is three cream, two sparkly, one topper. I am in love with 5 out of 6 of these, so it's really a winner of a collection. Let's take a look!

Here are the three cream, from pointer to ring - Monroe, Brandi, Trudith.

Monroe is described as a "glamour pink cream." What the hell does that mean? LOL. It's bright fuchsia in real life, and practically a one coater. I am going to get a ton of mileage with the baby. Gorgeous!

Brandi, a "blush pink cream" is also amazing. I love the muted quality about the color. This is two coats. This is the color I chose to wear after swatching. It is everything you want in a pink creme polish.

Trudith is also a muted lilac. It is actually quite close to Vicky, from the Kisses Collection, with more opacity. I did two coats here. This is another winner for me!

Leisel is the dud for me. I hardly ever add a topcoat to my cremes and this just doesn't stand alone well. I did three coats with no base to show you the color.

Leisel over Monroe, Brandi, Trudith - It is super pretty over Trudith, actually. I may have to wear that combo. My pinky has no base color for comparison sake.

Haruko is lamely described as a "soft, violet metallic." Um, no, Zoya, I am sorry, but this is a beautiful soft lavender with an even softer green/gold/lavender sheen to it. It is STUNNING and brightens the nail and skin. Haruko has a perfect formula and just glistens in the light.

Darby, well, you may want to sit down for this one. This is my favorite polish from the collection! Favorite! Blue! Can you believe it? Zoya also let me down with the description, calling it a "dusty, dull grey metallic." Uh. No. Bright, robin's egg blue with a gorgeous light blue/green/gold sheen to it. I am in absolute love with this one!!

In conclusion, Monroe and Darby are the standouts to me. 5 of these 6 will get plenty of use and I am sure I can find a good home for Leisel.
