Zoya Touch Collection: Swatches, Review

By  |  11 Comments

This week is apparently nail week on xSparkage! I have been having a swatchapalooza of nail polish :) Right now I have the new Zoya Touch collection to share with you- three soft, yet full coverage nude polishes. Generally I completely skip over any nude polishes and head straight for the bright colors, but I actually really like these! I think part of that has to do with the fact that they are full coverage- you still need 2-3 coats to completely block out the whites of the nails, but usually nude polishes tend to be on the sheer side, which I think partially has to do with the fact that people like to use them to make their nail color look even if their nails have started to get a bit yellow from wearing polish all the time. Another reason I think I like these so much is because honestly, I can’t remember wearing nude polish before- as in, ever, and I really appreciate the subtleness of it. Now, on to the swatches!

Minka: is described as “a pale milky beige nude with yellow undertones and a hint of pearly silver shimmer”. This color has more yellow in it than I would have thought from the description, it kind of reminds me of the color of sweetened condensed milk, maybe a touch lighter. The photo of this on the Zoya website looks a lot more neutral than it is in person as well.

Shay: described as “A dense, fleshy light peach with slight orange-red undertones and a hint of pearly silver shimmer”. This is a color recommended for warmer skintones.

Pandora: described as “A medium pink-beige nude with blue and mauve undertones and a hint of pearly silver shimmer”. I liked this one as well because it has that super pale pink tone that makes it not quite nude, but still an incredibly subtle polish. This is actually one that I wouldn’t mind seeing sheer, just to give the nails a tiny something more than completely bare.

 

These are available $8 each or as a set of three for $24 from Zoya.com.

    I think the first 2 are wrong for your skin tone (in my opinoin) but the 3rd one looks great. I have been having a problem finding the perfect nude b/c none of them look good on my skin tone. Only the pinky ones do.

    I’ve always thought of nude nail polish more of as a one size fits all kind of thing. Apparently not! I love the last one though. :-)

    Don’t you mean Shay is best for cool skin tones? I could be wrong, but I thought your skin tone was cool. I love Shay and Pandora! x

    I’m happy you started swatching nail polishes again. I really love seeing colors on other people before buying them myself..And since you get most for free if not all, then why not swatch them.

    And btw… what happened to you swatching and reviewing collections you already had. For example, you swatched your NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. Good idea on your part!

    Oooh. I think I like Shay the best. It’s nude but still has that slight pop of color :)

    I like Shay the best, I think that the OPI Femme De Cirque is comperable, plus you get a sparkly color that is fun to layer over the black/white shatter polishes for a soft sparkle. I too like the brighter colors, but some of these nudes are interesting under the black crackle.

    These colors are surprisingly really pretty for nudes. A lot of nudes I’ve used turned out really streaky. Could you do a post or something about formaldehyde free polishes? The only brand I know of is OPI.
