Zoya Naturel Deux Swatch, Gradient, & Review

Press SampleLast Monday the pre-order for Zoya's transitional collection, Naturel Deux, began and today I've got swatches of the three brown hues and a super seamless gradient using the remaining plum based lacquers.

Chanelle | Marnie | Aubrey
Emilia | Spencer | Madeline

Upon seeing the press release, I immediately fell for Emilia, Chanelle, and Spencer so let's start with swatches of those three beauts.
In order to avoid sounding like a broken record, the formula on all shades in this collection is the same; smooth formula and opaque in two coats.

If I had to choose a #1 fav out of the three brown hued lacquers it would definitely be Emilia. A super dark chocolate créme? Yes please.

Chanelle is a rich toasted almond créme that I'm glad to add to my collection because I'm always on the hunt for more flesh tone nail polishes.
Unfortunately, I didn't notice the lint on my fingernails until after I added my logo. I should probably stop swatching at 3am.

When I read the description for Spencer, I had two thoughts. One, camel créme? Really I've never heard of a camel being referenced as a nail polish color. And the second was a that it would be funny if there was another polish in this collection named Hastings.

And here's the most seamless gradient I've ever done in my life.
I started with a base of Madeline and then sponged on Madeline (again), Aubrey, and Marnie.
After I finished I was really impressed with just how pigmented these lacquers were.

Naturel Deux is available now on

Press Sample While summer collections are always my favorite, I can't say no to a well-formulated créme, even if it's a neutral shade.
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.

    What a fun idea to do gradients with these colors. They work really well for that. :) I especially like the last one with the pink colors. :)
