Nothing To Disclose
If you've been a long time reader, you know that I'm a bit sick of nude polish. That being said, when I heard about the Zoya Naturel Satin collection, I bought it as soon as it was available. The latest twist in the nude game is this chalk like finish from Zoya - not quite matte but more of a powder finish. First up I have Zoya Ana - a light toasted almond color.
I used a base coat of Zoya Armor, 2 coats of polish and no top coat. This formula was a little thick to work with but not unmanageable. Dry time was actually really nice even without a top coat.
This is a perfect office neutral for those who aren't able to go wild with polish - it's not quite what I would think almond is but it's also not really pink or brown. I'm kind of at a loss on how to describe the color.
In the shade you can also see that the Satin bottles are all frosted - it's to help distinguish the finish on this polish - while it is opaque, it's a bit hard to tell the true color in the bottle.
In the indirect light of my living room, you can see more of a pink tone coming through, I do think this is very complimentary to my skin tone and I could see myself wearing it more with short nails during long winter months. I do prefer brighter shades but this has its place.
This final photo is from my light box. You can almost see a sheen from the light which gives to look of a glossy polish but as you can see above, it's not glossy at all. It's definitely unique and I do like the look.
