Zoya Touch Collection

Hey dolls! Today I have for you the three shades from the Zoya Touch Collection. My favorite nude, Gretchen, is made by Zoya so I was excited to see how these measured up. The collection features 3 different shades that are meant to compliment different skin tones.

Up first is Minka, a pale, milky beige nude with yellow undertones..especially flattering on skin with neutral and olive tones. At first glance, I knew this shade was not going to be a good match for me. Minka was a little streaky on the first coat, but evened out to a nice creamy, opaque finish. The brush on this one was somewhat thin, but still spread out evenly across the nail.

Next is Pandora, a medium pink-beige nude with blue and mauve undertones...that works beautifully on skin with cool tones. I thought to myself "this is a little better," when I first saw Pandora in the bottle. The pink undertones were so strong in this shade that it definitely leaned more towards a mauve polish than a nude on me. Pandora so close to being a one-coater! This shade leveled out nicely on the nail. The brush was thicker than that of Minka and was much easier to work with. My right hand even makes an appearance for this one. :)

Lastly we have Shay, a fleshy light peach with slight orange-red undertones...that compliments warm skin tones. Shay was definitely the easiest to work with! The brush was just thick enough and it spread nicely across the nail. Like Pandora, Shay also leveled out well on its own. This is the shade that I thought would work best on my skin...and it turns out that I was right!

Hands down, my favorite in the collection was Shay! The formula was the easiest to work with and it complimented my skin the best. Two coats were used in all of the pictures above. I did not use top coat at all because the entire collection had a nice built in shine. I also really liked the touch of pearl shimmer that went through each shade. Overall, I think this is a great idea for a collection. Just like every girl needs a nude pair of shoes, they also need a great nude polish for those moments when we need a break from bright colors! While one person may not need all three shades, there is definitely one that works for them...the others they can use for gifts. :)
Which shade in this collection worked best for you??? Happy polishing dolls!
