Zoya finally has a Leslie!! Spring Delight Collection Swatches and Review

 press sample 
Today I have a bright and fun collection to share, the Zoya Spring 2015 Delight Collection. All six are cheery shades - three are cremes and three have a turquoise metallic flash. These really put me in the mood for warmer weather! They look like candy! What's equally as exciting is that I successfully executed a water marble for the first time ever! LOL. I'm not sure what the deal was...but I just couldn't do it. I decided to try it on just one nail for these swatches. More about that at the end of the post.

First up is, of course, LESLIE! I can't believe Zoya didn't have a Leslie in the line-up until now! I'm just going to pretend that this one is named after me, okay? The soft pink-leaning creme base and blue shimmer result in a pretty lavender shade. I love it. It went on in two easy coats.


Tiana is described as a pistachio-gelato green. I don't wear green polish much, but when I do, I prefer shades like this. It has a glossy creme finish in two coats.

Rayne is a dewy blue with the strongest shimmer of the bunch. I don't have anything similar in my stash. I used three thin coats.

Eden is a soft, but bright, pink creme. I can't get enough pinks like this, especially by the end of winter. I used three coats for this one, but you could get away with two.

Lillian is a powder blue that leans a touch green, giving it a slightly teal vibe. Very pretty. This is two coats. Fun Fact: When I was little, my cousins and I had nicknames for each other, all starting with the first letter of our real name. My nickname was Lillian! Too funny that Leslie and Lillian are in the same collection.

And finally, Daisy is a fresh yellow with that turquoise flash. Yellows can be fussy to apply, but this one went on easy. This is three thin coats.

So I suppose I'm a bit biased on this one given my name is finally a Zoya shade. (Woot!). Now I can finally create that shadow box for Adda (Addison) and me in the mani cave. I'm still rooting for a Victoria (my mom's name). That aside, I love the yummy colors and all will get lots of use!

The Zoya Delight Collection is available now for $9 each. They can be purchased at Zoya.com, select stores and spas, and in ULTA beauty stores (not online). Zoya offers frequent promotions, so be sure to follow their Facebook and Instagram to get the scoop! And tag your Zoya pics #everydayzoya for a chance to be featured on their social media!

Now for the water marble. I was motivated to try again because I wanted to test out Color4Nails Crystalline Nail Veil. This yellow, latex-based product applies with a striper brush and makes for easy cleanup! The inset in the pic below shows the the Nail Veil before dipping. The larger pic was taken immediately after I pulled it off from around the skin after dipping. I love this stuff - especially for the underside of the nail tip where taping isn't much help. I haven't tried the Crystalline Nail Veil to create designs on the actual nail yet. I'll let you know how that goes.


As for my success, I didn't do anything different this time (except, well cheat a little). My main issue is dragging a design through the polish. It always breaks up! So this time I didn't even try. I just dropped the polish into the water and dipped my finger. LOL. I've watched a gazillion YouTube videos and follow them to the letter. So frustrating! At least the Nail Veil makes it so I haven't wasted so much time trying!


Crystalline Nail Veil is available in the Color4Nails shop for $6 + shipping. I noticed that it's currently out of stock, but I'm sure it's popular and will make it's way back online soon. Color4Nails offers monthly specials, so be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram to hear of discounts and promotions.
