My new Zoya loves!

Yesterday, I welcomed 5 new babies into my home! That's right, my Zoya's came. YEEEEEEE!

From left to right: Kieko, Caitlin, Megan, Dove and Jacqueline. 

I was definitely so excited about these that I went ahead and swatched all of them last night! I did get a few requests to do so, so I'm not completely insane ;) 

First up...
Megan! Megan is described by Zoya as taupe grey creme and it definitely has a lot of greys in it. However, I also see a lot of pale lilac in it despite what they say. I really love this shade and it applies great. This is 2 coats with no problems :)
Dove is a really pretty neutral grey that appears to have some light green undertones in the right light. I like this one on much better than in the photograph. This is fairly opaque and 2 coats. 
Jacqueline is a really pretty creme that almost looks like buttah! I was worried I wouldn't like this with my skin tone but I ended up not wanting to take it off! I had to use 3 coats for this one so it could easily present problems with application.
Next up is Caitlin. This is an incredible greyed out light bluish-purple. I really liked this one. I was a little hesitant to buy it at first because I thought maybe it would be too similar to some of my other colors, but I'm so glad I went for it. This was so opaque and smooth that I could have easily gotten away with only 1 coat of this. Lovely!
Last is Kieko. This is an interesting color that I actually really like, but it's a bit too bright for my taste this time of year...yet despite this, I ended up using this for my mani...I guess I do like it! This applied well and is 2 coats. 

Overall, I think my favorites of these would have to be Caitlin and Dove...but then again, I'm completely drawn to muddied greens and blues so I guess I should've known! ;) What are you favs?

Happy Polishing!
