Happy Monday! Today will be fabulous. Let me tell you, last Monday was rough. Actually, the entire week was rough – I adore daylight savings and more… daylight but the transition is brutal! Please tell me I wasn’t the only one struggling last week? Friday marks the beginning of Spring and I have lots of beautiful polish to show you, but first – my second transitional polish.
This is the first Zoya transitional polish I’ve tried. The Naturel Satin collection is their third transitional collection. I skipped out on the previous two: Naturel and Naturel 2, but I just couldn’t say no to trying out a new finish. I love the soft neutral colors in all 3 collections.
I asked you guys which Naturel Satin polish I should try and Haley from Polished at Heart said I should try Sage – and here we are! Sage is a mossy sage green and actually reminds me of a satin version of Essie’s Sew Psyched. I’m in love with the color, it’s so calming and serene.
I feel like a lot of people like matte and satin finishes but are put off by their notoriously bad wear time. I’ve worn this polish several times and the wear is awesome. Seriously. I made it 4 days without any serious chipping – that’s pretty fabulous in satin/matte land. I started off with Julep’s Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat and then applied two coats of Sage. I made sure to add in a little extra dry time between coats. My middle nail shows some imperfections, it’s currently rebelling, the finish is very smooth.
Zoya nail polish retails for $9 and you can grab the Naturel Satin Collection on Zoya.com – they also have ADORABLE mini versions for $5. I love little mini polishes (except for OPI, because they don’t have labels. That drives me crazy). Zoya is also available at Ulta and my guess is, like the MatteVelvets, they’ll be on the clearance rack eventually…
Now I’m ready to jump back into Spring polish, what spring (or summer) collection are you most excited about? Let me know below!
