Zoya Lovely Collection for Spring 2013 Swatches and Review

Most of this post is going to seem a little “Déjà vu-ish”.  Back in September I received both the Peter Som trio as well as the Zang Toi trio and 5 of the 6 colors in the Zoya Spring 2013 are rereleased from those trios.  When I posted the original photos, I stated that I felt they were PERFECT for Spring and I wasn’t wrong!

The Lovely Collection consists of 3 “micro diamond particle” polishes as well as 3 stunning creme polishes.

Take a look!


Julie is described as a full coverage icy cool lilac with a micro diamond particle ice princess.  It’s a shade of purple so of course this was my #1 of the group!  Perfect for Spring!  I used 2 coats for this mani.  The shimmer in this is beautiful!

Gei Gei:


.  Such a princess pink!  Gei Gei is described as a full coverage icy pink micro diamond particle ice princess!  I used 2 coats for this mani as well and the coverage was fantastic!  Now the bottle name actually says “Gie Gie” but the website says Gei Gei.  It was like this when it was released back in September and it apparently didn’t get fixed during the rerelease.


I didn’t know what to think of Piaf.  Yellow doesn’t suit me, but this one is pretty!  It isn’t bright, but it certainly isn’t dull either.  I really think it’s the shimmer in it that makes this more wearable for me!  Piaf is described as a full coverage icy micro diamond yellow ice princess.   Love!  I used 3 coats for this mani!


 Jacqueline is described as a perfectly balanced opaque nude cream with cool and warm undertones.  I used 2 coats for this mani.  This is probably my least favorite of the group.  I rarely reach for nudes like this.  It wouldn’t be bad as a base color or design color.


Neely is described as a full coverage opaque creamy mint with subdued undertones.  One of my favorites!  I used 2 coats for this mani!


Blu is the newcomer to the Zoya line!    Blu is described as a full coverage hyacinth blue creme.  I used 2 coats for full opacity and it’s just beautiful.  I have a backup bottle already!

Overall, I am pleased with the Zoya Lovely Collection.  This one definitely screams “SPRING!” in every aspect.  I didn’t have any application issues.  With Julie, Gei Gei and Piaf you want to make sure each coat of polish is dry before moving on, otherwise you may get “pulling” due to the shimmer in the polish.  I am pleased they brought a lot of the Limited Edition polishes back because I know a lot of ladies wanted them and they had missed out.  A very small selfish part of me said “but I already have most of them!” but that’s ok!  Now I have backups :)

Retail price: $8.00 Each

Head on over to the Zoya Website to place an order!  Also, now through the 13th you can order 3 polishes and ONLY pay $10.00 for shipping and handling charges!  Basically breaks down to $3.33 per polish.. not a bad deal!

Thinking of purchasing?  Zoya has a program called Share the Love!  If you click on the following link and set up a new account – you get a FREE polish (Just pay shipping!).. add a second polish and shipping is free PLUS the first polish is free!  I do get points based on my Share the Love link, which I generally flip and hold giveaways to spend the points.  You get a free polish, I get 100 points.
