Zoya Naturel Deux 2 and Entice & Ignite Collection Selections: Review and Swatches

Friday, November 14, 2014

Zoya and I had a rough start about two years ago. I picked out about 4 nail polishes and none of them worked for me (read here). HaHaHa  It wasn't the colors, but the quality that frustrated me. I swore I wouldn't buy anymore. Well 2 years later, my little beauty heart has changed. HaHaHa I followed other beauty bloggers, wrote down colors that looked good on them and waited for Zoya to have a sale. They recently had a Buy 3 for $15, so I jumped at the chance to try them again. The third try was the charm! I love them all! Plus they are FIVE FREE: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor & dibutyl phthalate free (vegan friendly nail lacquer). Spencer, Chanelle and Madeline only required ONE COAT. Aubrey, Aurora and Autumn required TWO COATS. I can't vouch for the lasting time on these, because I just got them a week ago, but they are lovely. Now, AURORA was a mistake. I wanted another color, but I must've mistakenly typed in the wrong shade (can't you tell how different it is from the others I selected? HaHaHa). It's like purple meets Sprite. It's super fizzy & bubbly looking! But I'll keep it. Just one suggestion with application of Autumn and Aurora! The first coat should be a thin layer...let dry...then add a second coat. If not, it won't look even. They're a little thicker. Other than that, I have no complaints. My favorites are Madeline and Aubrey (purplish mauve shades). I'm taking those with me on my trip. Have a great weekend everybody.




Can't you tell Aurora was the mistake? HaHaHa Different from everything else I selected! HaHaHa

I think the Aurora is a happy mistake - that's such a fun colour! :)


I love my Zoya polishes - they always have such great wear-time for me. But I don't have many, they are hard to get here in Australia! So I end up wearing my OPI more, they are stocked almost everywhere you look! Not as long wear time though :(

They look so beautiful, the matt ones are just lovely, especially the Madeleine. And yes Aurora does stand out, but hey, Christmas is coming, it will be perfect then! x

LOVE the Spencer and Madeline shades!

NotJessFashion said...

Those colors are all fab! But my fave among them is Spencer - goes with any outfit color.

I think all the shades are stunning! I personally would mix Aubrey and Aurora together as in 4 fingers with Aubrey and 1 finger with Aurora, it would be so chic or at least in my mind it will be chic. LOL!
I am soooo sorry that I can't reply to your comment on my blog, somehow the darn 'reply' button is missing. :-(

I had the same issue with Zoya's quality but it's good to know these nail colors worked out well for you Kim. You selected some really pretty colors and Aurora looks like it's a happy mistake cause it looks fantastic on you!

Lorena said...

ABout a year ago I tried their polishes, I think it was Godiva - I loved it. However i do not have more from them because they are not sold where I live.
I like your colour choices, specially the bright ones.

LoveT. said...

Beautiful Shades! Madeline is my favorite one ,looks so elegant :)

Ashley said...

I LOVE the autumn and aurora shade Kim!!! They are gorgeous!! All the other shades you picked out are pretty too!! At least aurora was a good mistake right haha!!! I've always had good luck with Zoya polish, maybe they changed their formula from a few years ago? I'm glad it's working for you now!

miss b said...

I am reluctant now to try nail varnish brands which I'm not familiar with as I have bought too many disappointing ones in the past, attracted simply by the colour. I've heard of Zoya but maybe I should give this one a try having read your review. I love those earthy shades and Aubrey too which is such a rich shade. Have a lovely weekend, Kim!

Tina Bradley said...

Kim, I'm an nail polish hound--love buying and using them! Love the ones you've featured here--especially the mauve-like shades! They are so unique and lux! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Hi Kim, I think I only have one or two bottles of Zoya and frankly I don't remember the quality. Nice review. I particularly like Spencer and Aubrey. Have a great weekend!

yay to third time being the charm!! :)

Champagne Star said...

Nice colors, except for the last two, Aurora and Autumn. I'm not a big fan of sparkly nail polishes, so I would not have chosen either of these. But the others are my kind of colors. I will have to try the Madeline one since I've been trying to find a light pink that isn't too pink.

I don't paint my nails, but these are lovely shimmering shades. :) Have a lovely weekend Beautiful.

The colors are gorgeous! I've never had luck with the more glittery polishes like aurora. I like smooth. :)

Dale Janée said...

I know what you mean about Zoya, I tried it a few years ago and wasn't a huge fan so I always use OPI, LVX and Essie but maybe I should give it another try! The Madeline shade is so pretty for fall and I know what you mean about Aurora, but at least it was on sale hehe. :)

Cee said...

Wow - Aurora really is super frizzy and bright on, it almost looks like purple champagne bubbles! I actually think the colour fits in quite well with the rest, but the finish is definitely... unusual ;) I've never tried Zoya and I have so many polishes right now, I should probably wait. But you do have me tempted!
xox,
Cee

Coco said...

I've meant to try Zoya nail polishes for some time: here they sell them along with a kit that should protect your nails from chipping and make them more elastic, so that the nail polish lasts longer. You really have beautiful nails and I love the colours you selected (Aurora not that much honestly). Happy Sunday

Funny I was just in Birch Box the other day and almost bought this. I just couldn't decided what brand or color I wanted so I left without a purchase. I will have to keep this in mind for next time.

the first two look like the butter london ones, but probably way cheaper and better, lol! love those nudes.

Jane @ anothermommablog.blogspot.com said...

those are lovely colors. I've tried them once a long time ago but like you, I didn't like the quality. I sure do love their prices though. Sounds like they've improved, and I like the five free formulation. I just might give them a try again.

Autumn and Aurora are just divine on you! They pop beautifully!!

I really love Zoya polishes The colors are always very pretty and I just think they are just so fun You have quite a lineup of shades here I just counted my polishes, all 85 of them, I don't think I can buy anymore for a while. I try to throw one out when I buy a new one, but it doesn't always work!

For a rough start with Zoya, I do think they look very promising now. They are so glossy looking! Aurora actually looked great. I didn't know it was a mistake.
