Zoya Sensual Collection Swatches and Review [Fall 2019]

Zoya's Sensual Collection is officially here for Fall 2019! This collection features a range of 12 new contemporary neutrals to desirable darks. Sensual beautifully implements traditional autumn shades with a variety of finishes.


My Thoughts on the Zoya Sensual Collection for Fall 2019

Hello Lovelies! It has truly been a minute since I have been able to post a blog post on here, but I have been posting on my Instagram, so if you're looking for the most up-to-date swatches, stop by there! 

The reason I have been away a while is because I went on a 3 week trip to California, where I hiked around 100 miles. It was an amazing trip, but I am happy to be back doing my nails! That being said -- I had to cut my nails super super short for the hikes, so they are only just starting to grow back. But anyway, onto the nails!

Fall is my favorite favorite season for nail polishes, because I love dusty fall tones so much! This collection is no exception. The Zoya Sensual Collection is a new 12-piece collection made up of contemporary neutrals to desirable darks that are perfect for fall. 



Swatches of the Zoya Sensual  Collection


JOSS | Joss is described as a soft colonial rose cream. The perfect neutral with a kiss of pink. This reminded me of a few other Zoya shades that I have recently gotten (which you'll see in my comparisons post later this week) but this is definitely unique to my collection! I got this opaque in 2 coats.



KINSLEY | Kinsley is described as a blush toned caramel cream, and just a smidgen darker than a mannequin shade would be on me. I think this is such a clean polish for the fall, and I loved it on my skin tone. I got this fully opaque in 2 coats.


   
FOSTER | Foster is described as a decadent hot chocolate cream with pink undertones. At first I didn't see the pink undertones, but once I placed Foster next to some of my other Zoya browns, I really saw how warm and pink this shade it. I was shocked, but this is one of my favs in the collection! The formula is more of a jelly than the other cream polishes in this collection, but I still got it fully opaque in 2 c oats.



BRIAR | Briar is described as a red-toned terracotta cream. I definitely see the clay color in this shade, but it is a little dustier in real life vs. these photos. Again, I got this opaque in 2 coats. 



MARGARET | Margaret is described as a well-balanced vivid auburn red cream, aka true mid-toned classic red. This one is less blue based than most of my other Zoya red's -- but more on that in my comparisons post. This one had an amazing 2 coat formula, was so much more opaque on the first coat than my other reds, and it's now my fav Zoya red.




RASHIDA | Rashida is described as a dazzling ruby red with a shimmer of red micro pearl. When I look at this polish, I see really gorgeous red micro pearl, but also some bigger magenta looking flecks hidden in there -- do you see them? I got this polish opaque in an easy 2 coats.




ETTA | The next shimmer is Etta, and it's described as a vampy cabernet with a hint of violet micro pearl. I think this is a tad more purple than a glass of cabernet would be, but it's a beautiful warm purple shimmer. Again, opaque in 2 easy coats.




RIPLEY | Ripley is described as a rich boysenberry cream. I thought this would be really similar to some recent purples from Zoya, but I was surprised to see this is a fair bit darker than the purples that Zoya has put out recently! An easy 2 coats to make this crelly polish opaque.




MICHAELA | Michaela is described as a dusty purple taupe cream, and one that I made me immediately think of KL Polish Unfortunate Souls (but US is much much darker so I was quickly like JK). I can't lie, I don't love this color on me, but maybe you will! The formula is that classic amazing Zoya cream, so you get this opaque in 2 coats.




VESPER | A blurple! That means you know I'll love Vesper, described as a deep, antique grey-violet cream. I think this is a really beautiful dusty blurple, and is for sure one of my favorites from this collection. Zoya's buttery cream formula makes this perfectly opaque in 2 coats. 




ELLIOT | Okay, a true blue? For sure this is on my list of faves! Elliot is described as a blackened peacock blue cream (insert heart eye emoji here). This squishy blue polish is so gorgeous, and I love the crelly finish so much with this color. This dries super shiny after 2 coats, but topcoat always recommended.




ASHTON | Ashton is described as a black tourmaline with a scattered silver effect. I really don't think I have anything like Ashton, and I am excited to play around with this color in the fall. I got this one opaque in 2-3 coats. 


Final Thoughts on the Zoya Barefoot Collection


Ah, I hate to say it, but this is not my favorite Zoya collection I've ever gotten, but that doesn't mean there aren't some real gems in here. This color scheme was not the most inspiring to me -- I just am not a huge huge fan of pinks and warmer toned reds/purples, which there are a a fair number of here.

Overall formula wise, these cream's were impeccable -- absolutely no complaints there! These were just not colors for me, but if they are for you -- pick them up today!
