Review and Swatch: Zoya - Innocence (Spring 2019)*

Zoya brings to us this Spring, the Innocence Collection, which is a set of 6 polishes that is said to evoke the feeling of nature and the "transitions from Winter to Summer. Complete with its own thunderstorm in the color Theo, this collection is stormy and subtle, yet features a touch of brightness and softness". I would have to say that the description of this collection is pretty spot on - I am really feeling the grey-ish hue vibes of all the polishes. 

Agnes: A powder pink in its cream formula
Birch: A grey toned lavender in a cream formula.
Fern: A saje green with an iridescent pearl shimmer that also subtly reflects a champagne hue. 
Aire: A periwinkle blue in a cream formula.
Evette: Grape Purple in cream formulation.
Theo: A dark grey with irregular silver flakes throughout with a mix of dark blue glitter.

What I really appreciate in Zoya polishes, is their consistent attention to their formulations. In the above polishes, I could get away with one layer if I wanted to - but just to make sure I get a thoroughly even application, I always just do two to be safe. The shade Theo for sure needed two, and even perhaps three coats if you wanted it fully opaque as it is a glitter formulation. Each shade retails for $10 usd each. 

Just a reminder, that you can now order the Z-wide brushes to provide you with an even easier application with its wider brush. 

Out of all the shades, my favorite would have to be Fern and Birch, Agnes too is quite beautiful but Fern and birch are really beautiful shades. Fern is something I haven't seen before, and I have alot of nail polishes in my collection!

Until next time, XO - M.
