A few days ago, the Zoya Naturel 3 Collection launched on Zoya’s official website, and it includes six colours that are work-appropriate and that will flatter different skin tones. (As a refresher, check out the official press release that I published on here earlier.)
While I am the first one to pounce on a bold, vibrant nail colour, I can appreciate muted tones that offer understated elegance.
For formal occasions or in conservative settings, it’s not always appropriate to wear a manicure that screams louder than a neon-plaid jumpsuit. Those times call for wear-anytime colours. The Zoya Naturel 3 Collection fits the bill!
As you know, Zoya nail polishes are often given women’s names. I’m thrilled to see that Zoya has finally released a nail polish called Mary! 😉 It’s described as a ‘raisin,’ which is accurate because it’s a soft brown with a tinge of purple mixed in. I love how it’s slightly different than your run-of-the-mill gingerbread brown.
Zoya’s creme nail polishes are always on point with smooth, pigmented formulas that are consistent and reliable. The ones in the Zoya Naturel 3 Collection live up to my expectations because they were a dream to apply, and I only needed to use two coats to achieve full opacity.
The formula is also very forgiving, in that it doesn’t dry too fast, so you have some time to paint over your nail several times to get the look and coverage you want. No hiccups here! Plus because they’re cremes, they were easy peasy to remove.
They also are shiny, even without a top coat. (All of my swatches in this post are shown without a base or top coat, and you can see how glassy the nail polishes are!)
My favourites? Aside from being biased and having a soft spot for the one named Mary (hehe), Debbie and Jill are my next choices.
Which ones are you gravitating toward?
P.S. If you haven’t already, remember to enter my Zoya Enchanted Collection worldwide giveaway by December 31st! (There will be three winners. Check that blog post for all the details. Good luck in the draw!)

Are you into neutral nail polish? Even if you’re not, which of these six shades would you be most likely to wear?
Yay, I was eagerly waiting for swatches of this collection! Starting in summer I really started to get into neutral polishes and makeup. I can’t get enough. I really like Mary, Debbie, and Gina.
While I never was crazy about neutrals, as the years go on, I’m learning to appreciate them more because they offer easy elegance. Plus they are very easy to wear in any situation. Now that Zoya Mary has come out, I’ve already worn it twice during the holiday season. 😉 Hehe! Maybe more neutrals are in my nail-wearing future!
These are such great colors. Neutrals but bright colors. Thanks for sharing them with us. As always, they look great on you!
It’s my pleasure! 🙂 Glad to share swatches, but I’m even happier to hear from loyal, encouraging, and positive readers like you! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
I think I want them all! Maybe not Tatum or Cathy (have a feeling they may not look so good on me), but I have a soft spot for neutrals too :o)
With neutrals, finding ones that work with your skin tone is the key, for sure! I tend to have better luck with the darker neutrals than the lighter ones.
These are gorgeous. I especially like Jill, Mary, and Debbie (especially if Debbie can’t pass for black – – I have so many raisin/grape colors that look black on the nail).
Debbie, while dark, is definitely not black, so I think you’ll enjoy it!
Gimme… just gimme all of them! 🙂

They are gorgeous and so difficult to choose but if I hsd to I would say Gina.
Just love them.
Great choice! You’re totally right – too many pretty polishes that make it difficult to select just one!
