Zoya Petals Spring 2016 Swatch & Review

Hello everyone!

I finally have my review of the Zoya Petals Spring 2016 Collection ready. I've had swatches ready but no time to write. The Petals collection consists of six polishes in soft spring shades; Leia, Aster, Azalea, Zahara, Tulip, and Laurel.

Let's get right to it shall we. Get ready for lots of pictures! I did the best I could to get color accurate photos.

Leia is described as a sheer opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold. Just as beautiful alone as it is layered over your favorite spring shades! My above swatch shows three thin coats plus top coat under indirect lighting. I love the pink flecks!

I layered one coat of Leia over two coats of Zoya Lake. I loved it! It also looks gorgeous over black.

Laurel is described as a warm pastel pink with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic a petal soft finish. My above swatch shows two coats plus top coat under indirect light. May require three coats if doing thin coats.

I did some comparisons between Tulip, Laurel and Zahara since they seem to look a lot alike in the bottles. As you can see they are very different color wise and even their formulas are different. Zahara and Laurel have a better formula than Tulip. Tulip's formula is on the thin side so the first coat is very patchy but it evens out by the third coat. Zahara has the most shimmer in it.

I love this collection. I think it's perfect for spring. I do wish they had included a minty shade though.  But I can't pick a favorite since I do like them all. Our weather has started to get better and it's starting to feel like spring so I can't wait to use these for spring nail art!

Zoya Petals Collection is available now at Zoya.com

What do you guys think of this collection? Do you have a favorite? Let me know below.
