Zoya Naturel Deux Collection: Swatches and Review

As much as I love summer, and I don't want it to end just yet, I'm pretty excited about today's post - I've got the Zoya Naturel Deux Collection, which is a transitional set of six dark neutral shades to ease us into fall. And let me tell you - they're gorgeous!

I was sad that I missed out on getting any of the first Naturel collection, but I actually think these polishes are even prettier! Plus, I have to admit, fall is my favorite season for nail polish. Anyway, let's take a look at these polishes:

First off we have Madeline, a dusty rose cream. I honestly love all of the polishes in this collection, but this one is a definite favorite. Flawless coverage in two easy coats - and as with all the polishes I'm reviewing today, this one was super shiny without top coat, but I added a coat for consistency.

Aubrey is the darker, dusty mauve sister of Madeline. Another flawless polish in a gorgeous color! I don't want to keep repeating myself with these colors, but they all have a perfect formula and application was a breeze. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

And then we have the darkest, dusty maroon cream, Marnie. It's colors like this that really make me excited for fall - can't you just imagine pairing this with dark jeans and boots? Shown above is two coats and top coat.

Onto the browns! Emilia is a rich, dark chocolate brown cream. As I mentioned, all of these polishes are super shiny, but this one was by far the glossiest - I had trouble keeping my lens from reflecting in my nails! Shown above is two coats and top coat.

Chanelle is a rich caramel brown cream that could compliment any skin tone! You may remember from my recent Essie review that I have very little experience with brown polishes, but it's colors like this that are making me fall in love - it's so warm and classy! Shown above is two coats and top coat.

And finally, we have Spencer, a light toffee brown cream. I'm surprised to say that I love this one on me - I was expecting that it would be too close to my skin tone, but I think it really looks nice! Shown above is two coats and top coat.

Overall, I'm loving this collection and I'm pleased to see that neutrals are staying in style through fall. These are all work appropriate, too! My top picks would have to be Madeline, Marnie, and Spencer. Which do you like best?

This collection is available on the Zoya website for $9 USD each, or the whole collection for $54. Be sure to follow Zoya on Facebook for news and updates!
