ZOYA Lovely Collection for Spring 2013 - Review, Photos & Swatches

A few quick swatches & thoughts on the ZOYA Spring 2013 Lovely Collection. Lovely features soft, pretty pastels in shimmery and creme finishes! The cremes have a slightly thicker formula when compared to the shimmers. On the plus side, the cremes are quite opaque in one coat and perfect with two. The metallics, however, need 2-3 coats to look perfect, but the formula is on the thinner side and super easy to work with.

Blu - A perfect, light pastel blue with no hint of shimmer/glitter. It is quite thick and takes a while to dry, but very glossy even without a topcoat on.

Neely - (Originally designed for Peter Som/SS13) - Light, minty green creme. Zoya has some amazing greens and Neely is no exception. It is a couple of shades lighter than Bevin (spring 2012) and much lighter than Wednesday (summer 2012). See comparison swatches below.

Jacqueline (Originally designed for Peter Som/SS13) - Light pastel nude yellow. I love Jacqueline on my toes than on my fingers. It is very opaque and a great color to have if you don't like white, but want something a little more softer. 

Piaf (Originally designed for Fashion Designer Zang Toi) - Light yellow with fine shimmer. It has a metallic finish and looks better with a topcoat. The shimmer is fine, not chunky, but tends to leave a couple of glittery particles around the nail bed. It isn't full on glitter, so it is quite easy to remove. Piaf is probably my favourite from the Lovely Collection. The formula is amazing, streak-free and dries super fast. 

Gei Gei (Originally designed for Zang Toi/SS13) - Light pink with sliver shimmer. It is quite shimmery and a perfect girly shade of pink if you like such colors. Lovely, soft shade of pink for spring/summer.

Julie (Originally designed for Zang Toi/SS13) - Icy, shimmery Lilac Purple. The color is gorgeous and quite flattering against most skin tones. The shimmer in Julie isn't very obvious when compared to Gei Gei or Piaf. If you tend to like polishes form the purple/lilac family, Julie is a must have.

Overall, Lovely is a perfect spring collection, in my opinion and has the perfect mix of wearable pastels and soft colors. The cremes are a little thicker and more opaque than the metallics, formula wise. Piaf is my favourite from the Lovely Collection, followed by Julie and Blu!
