Zoya Feel Collection

Good morning everyone! I have something really awesome and special for you today, Zoya's Feel collection! The Feel collection was created to be the perfect winter neutrals and they truly are. I'm so excited that I get to share these with you, so let's get started:

First up is Kristen, a beautiful sky-blue-gray shade. I don't have any colors like this and I absolutely love it. I actually wasn't sure if I would like Kristen or not since light blues usually make my skin look red, but I'm very happy to say that this is one of my favorites. 


Carey is the one true gray out of the collection. It's very pretty, but not overly exciting. I don't have a lot of gray in my stash though, so I'm happy to add this one!


Up next is the beautiful Megan, a lavender-gray creme. I had a really hard time picking a favorite out of this collection, but Megan is definitely one of them. I am so crazy about all these tinted grays.


Here is another one of my favorites, Kendal. A very, very light purple-gray or maybe even pink-gray in certain lighting situations. I really love Kendal, too. There are so many awesome shades in this collection.


Here is Kennedy, a pink-ish beige color. Kennedy was one of the colors that I was most worried about with my skin tone and I actually ended up liking it a lot. It's not a typical color that I would reach for, but I'm pleasantly surprised with it and I do think that I will wear it again.


And lastly, we have Avery. If I had to pick a least favorite from the Feel collection, I think this would be it. I'm not really crazy about how it looks with my skin tone, but I'm sure there are a lot of people that this would look awesome on. It really looked like I was applying liquid foundation to my nails! :P


Honestly, I think Zoya nailed this collection. I'm really impressed at the variety that they were able to create while still having a collection of obvious neutrals. The only thing I have a slight complaint about was the formula since it was a little tricky to work with. It seemed a bit on the thick side and didn't level itself off as well as some other Zoya polishes that I have. I'm sure that this would be solved with a couple drops of polish thinner, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Also worth noting, I used three coats of polish for all of these swatches. Two probably would have been sufficient if I had done them a little thicker from the start, but I did a really thin first coat. Overall, I would definitely recommend the whole collection, but specifically Kristen and Megan and/or Kendal.

You can pick these up at http://www.zoya.com/ or (I think) at Ulta for $8. While you're at it, you should definitely go like Zoya on Facebook and follow them on Twitter; they are doing incredible flash promos/deals/giveaways throughout the holidays that you need to get in on!

  7. I just ordered Avery and Kendal, so it was nice to see these swatches. My skin is a bit darker so I hope that the Avery shade looks okay. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Your swatches of this collection are the best I have seen, and I follow over 200 nail blogs. These photos are beautiful and very clear, and make it so easy to decide which ones I want to buy (which is most of them!). Your nails are flawless, as well. Your blog is one of my favorites, I just adore your swatches.

  15. They are very similar on a first, quick look but offers so much, my favorite would be Carey simply because I'm crazy about grays lately

  16. It looks like Avery gives you perfect 'mannequin' hands. I'm still on the lookout for the perfect opaque nude for my tone (light but slightly pink).
