Zoya Awaken for Spring 2014 - Swatches and Review

Affiliate Link Press Sample

Happy Friday, loves!  It's the end of another crazy week.  Do you all have any plans?  Because I don't, and I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do with myself!  Probably swatches.  ;)  

Today I have the last of my Zoya reviews.  This post is all about the Spring Awaken collection!  Usually Zoya splits their collections into half cream, half shimmer/metallic/glitter.  This is kind of like that, but has two creams, one metallic, and three shimmers.  I like almost all of these, so let's take a look! 

Brooklyn is the single metallic in this collection.  It is a light gold/yellow with an almost frosty look. I used three coats here.  I would like it a little more if it didn't almost look frost.  As it is, there was some brush streaking.

 Dot is a super delicate pink cream.  The formula is almost crelly, and I needed three coats.  It is a little lighter even than my picture shows and would make a good work safe color, or possibly even a nude/neutral on some skin tones.

Cole reminds me of Julep Hayden.  I didn't like Hayden, and the jury is still out on this one.  It is a bright orange-sicle cream polish.  I used three coats to fully even the polish out.

The next three are the shimmers, and the ones I really love!  Each one has a gold shimmer that pops out and ties them all together.

Rebel is a pretty sky blue polish that almost glows!  It reminds me of Skylar, and I love this one just as much.  This is two coats.

 Dillion is a mint green polish with gold shimmer.  Another gorgeous one!  I need all the mint green.  :)  This is two coats.

Finally, Hudson.  The name of this one gets me because every time I hear Hudson, I see the Hudson Hornet from Cars.  lol  However, Hudson is a gorgeous pale lilac shimmer polish.  I love how the gold looks in this one!  This is two coats as well.

Overall this is a nice collection.  The colors definitely say Spring!  I wouldn't have bought the first three (Cole, Dot, Brooklyn), but the shimmers (Rebel, Dillion, Hudson) are right up my alley!

These are $9 each at zoya.com.  Keep caught up with Zoya and their releases on FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterestYoutube, and the Zoya blog.
