Zoya Naturel Satin Collection Swatches and Review

*Press Sample*

Today I have the Zoya Naturel Satin Collection to swatch for you! I am so excited for this collection. I love the Zoya Matte Velvet polishes so I was really interested to see if these had a similar formula. Zoya describes these polishes as "transition" colors on their website, which I think is perfect. The Naturel Satin polishes are a great way to transition from Winter to Spring nail colors. They all feature Zoya's new "Satin" finish which is described as a hybrid of matte and glossy polishes and is not intended to be worn with a top coat. I thought some of you might wonder what they would look like with top coat, so the first two pictures in each set do not have top coat but the third picture does. Check out what I think of all six colors after the jump!

L-R: Sage, Tove, Brittany, Rowan, Leah and Ana

Rowan is described by Zoya as a "creamy taupe suede creme." This is the darkest shade in the collection. I think it is a really nice neutral color, perfect for anyone. I really liked this color on me. It isn't something I would normally gravitate to, but I thought it looked really chic.

Leah is described as "a lavender tinged taupe creme." It is definitely not an in your face purple, but you can see the lavender in this polish when you have it on your nails. This is a really pretty, delicate shade. One of my favorites in this collection.

Ana is described as "a light toasted almond creme." Ana is the lightest polish in the collection. I could see this color as a really nice base for nail art. This one appeared to have streaks when I applied it but as it dried the streaks disappeared. It was like magic! 

Brittany is described as "a rose mauve creme." This is a perfect feminine, delicate color. I love this one with top coat. I sometimes have a hard time finding very light pinks with a good formula and this polish fills in that gap for me. 

Sage is described as "a mossy sage green creme." This one is just what the name says. A sage green. Simple, delicate and beautiful. My favorite out of the collection. I love a good green nail polish and this one is no exception. This one did not appear to dry quite as matte as the other ones did, so I'll be interested to see when I try it again if I get the same results.

Last but not least we have Tove. Tove is described as "a misty slate grey creme." I actually think this one leans a little to the blue side of grey. This is another favorite of mine. I think Brittany, Sage and Tove would look so pretty together. 

I love this collection. I normally go more for brighter colors with some shimmer or glitter, but these are so pretty. I think the whole collection is filled with delicate, feminine colors that are really perfect for this "transition" period between Winter and Spring. I also think all of these colors would be really appropriate for the workplace. They have just enough color and none of them are loud or too bright. I used two coats on all of my swatches. The formula was excellent. It dried quickly and was smooth to apply. The satin finish is different than anything I've ever tried before. I really like it and I would be interested to see what it looks like with brighter shades.

The Naturel Satin collection is available now on, and at top salons, spas and select Ulta locations.They retail for $9 per polish. I would love to hear which colors are your favorites or which ones you picked up from this collection in the comments below!
