ZOYA Touch Collection Swatches & Review


The other day, I posted the Press Release and images for the latest and greatest from ZOYA, the Touch collection, a trio of fabulous nudes/beiges with subtle pearl. Today, I have photos and reviews of them!! (They're fab, by the way)






Yellowish, almost green toned beige/nude

When I saw the initial pictures of this trio of polishes, I thought for sure this one was going to be my favorite, but I was just slightly off, this one happened to fall into the 2nd place category. Now don't get me wrong, I really like this color, it's just a tad more yellow than I imagined. It has a very subtle pearl to it, like the others in the collection, which almost seems to make it glow. It's a really great work-safe neutral!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Use for Konad: Doesn't stamp well on lighter colors, but stamps decently on darker colors. 

Finish: Pearl, 2-3 coats to be opaque, depending on application.





Sandy beige/nude

This one totally ended up being my favorite of the three. It's a lovely sand color with a subtle pearl to it- it reminds me of warm, sandy beaches! (those sunny places I avoid without an inch thick layer of 70 SPF) 

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Use for Konad: Doesn't stamp well on lighter colors, but stamps so-so on darker colors. 

Finish: Pearl, 2-3 coats to be opaque, depending on application.





Rosey beige/nude, dare I say that it's creeping into puce territory?

The last in this trio of nude beiges is a rose-toned one with a mild coolness to it. Though it seems to be a fairly decent match for my skin tone, it's not my favorite of the three, but I do love the pearl it has.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Use for Konad: Doesn't stamp well on lighter colors, but stamps so-so on darker colors. 

Finish: Pearl, 2-3 coats to be opaque, depending on application.


What it really comes down to...

One of my favorite polishes from Zoya happens to be Pasha, which shares this same subtle silvery pearl that seems to make them glow from within. I love that they're a twist on colors that could be considered boring, but they maintain the elegance and subtlety that makes them fab. They applied wonderfully, the pigmentation was great for a nude polish!

Zoya polishes can be found at ULTA retailers around the USA, as well as at Zoya's website. 

Disclosure: Products featured in this post were sent to me by the manufacturer for review.
