I have something shocking to report. Before today, I hadn't painted my nails in TWO WEEKS. I think that's the longest I've gone with plain nails in at least four years. But with my recent move to Pittsburgh (and the subsequent unpacking of multitudes of boxes), I knew it wasn't worth painting my nails just to see them ruined five seconds later.

The second I received the Zoya Naturel Collection in the mail, however, I knew my first manicure back in the saddle would HAVE to be with these polishes. And, rather than choose just one, I went for a fun little ombre manicure to test them (almost) all out simultaneously! Here's the breakdown...

I guess it comes as no surprise that I'm absolutely in LOVE with this whole collection. I adore purple nail polish and purple in general (in fact, two of the walls in my new apartment are comparable shades of purple!). Every one of these polishes applied easily, evenly and completely opaque in two coats. Even without top coat, they're all surprisingly glossy and creamy!

The nail polishes in the Zoya Naturel Collection retail for $9 each. You can also buy the entire set for $54. Find them all at zoya.com.

  2. Aha! There it is. So interesting to see all the shades from the first Natuels collection together. So do you call this mani an ombre? I'm looking for a way to describe it that won't disappoint folks searching for the sponge technique ombre ;)

    1. Yes, I would call it an ombre -- since it's fading from light to dark on each nail I think it still counts as one!
