Zoya: Touch Collection Limited Edition 2011, Swatches and Review

The Touch Collection by Zoya: 3 Perfect Nude Colors

"Zoya Nail Polish presents 3 new, full coverage nude creams-softly kissed with a touch of metallic to make them ultra wearable and dynamic. Soft, Sensual, Sexy and Elegant."

Note: All manicures have 1 coat of base coat and NO top coat!

First up is Zoya "Minka" - 2 coats

 "Zoya Nail Polish in Minka can be best described as: A pale, milky beige nude with yellow undertones and a hint of pearly silver shimmer. An opaque, full-coverage nude, especially flattering on skin with neutral and olive tones."

Next, Zoya "Shay"- 2 coats

"Zoya Nail Polish in Shay can be best described as: A dense, fleshy light peach with slight orange-red undertones and a hint of pearly silver shimmer. An opaque, full-coverage nude that compliments warm skin tones."

 Lastly, Zoya "Pandora"- 2 coats

"Zoya Nail Polish in Pandora can be best described as: A medium pink-beige nude with blue and mauve undertones and a hint of pearly silver shimmer. An opaque, full-coverage nude that works beautifully on skin with cool tones."

I found all three formulas to be a bit looser and more runny than the usual Zoya formula. I had some pooling issues along my cuticle while painting them, but if you are more careful, you can avoid this :)

They all leveled off nicely and left no streaks or brush strokes behind.  I loved how these are essentially frost, without all the "frost"..know what I mean.LOL :P

They have a subtle frost  texture which gives them a very "metallic-like" coating. Nice and subtle. My favorite is Shay, this is a neutral shade I can see myself wearing. Minka is a bit too yellow for me and Pandora is a bit too pink for my taste,  but Shay is JUST RIGHT!

I like how each one is so different that any person can find a shade among these 3 that would work for them.Good Job Zoya!

"Find Zoya TOUCH as well as over 300 other ultra high-fashion Zoya shades at www.zoya.com. As always, each and every Zoya color is made for women so we name them after women."

I've been wondering how these would look on us with darker skin. Being honest, I think I like Minka best. But Shay looks really good on you.

Wow! I'm really liking Minka. I can't believe how Pandora is so pink. I did pick it up. Now I'm wanting the others. These will be great when I'm in a nude mood :)
