First Spring haul: Zoya Lovely

From the left: Julie, Gie Gie, Piaf, Jacqueline, Neely, Blu

Look what was on my mail box today!
I got the whole Zoya Lovely collection from nailetc.com for USD 49.00 (including shipping fees) . It took 15 days to arrive, but I chose the cheapest shipping method, so I think is acceptably fast.
Every year I get a spring collection, (well except 2012 when I was on a polish-break). And I'm really happy with this one. It's my favourite collection of all the previews for Spring that I've been seeing so far. I know, you're thinking about the Color Club Halo Hues for Spring, but I'm not that much a holo girl. While I'd like to get one or two shades, I wouldn't buy a whole holo collection.
At first sight, it looks like all the "Lovely" colours are unique in my collection, there's only one  I might have a dupe of, it's Zoya Blu. I have yet to try on the nail but on the bottle it looks exactly the same than Essie Borrowed and blue. So if you own the Essie shade you might want to give it a second thought before getting Zoya Blu. For the rest of the shades, none of my colours is even near to them.
I can't wait to swatch them, and share them with you. But I want to wait for a sunny day to have good pictures. So stay tuned!
What do you think about Zoya Lovely? Is this a collection that appeals to you for Spring? Have you already got any of the shades?
Love,
Nati

  1. I've come to like this collection the more I look at it. And I always thought that I wasn't a pastel girl, but maybe I am. They look great almost everyone of them. :-)

    1. Hi Ann-Sofie, there's only one time of the year I become a "pastel girl" and that's spring!! (provided I'm a bit tanned, so the light colours look better on me)
      Thanks for commenting!! :D

    I guess you have already worked out that my favourites are the blue and green one? ;)
    I don't think I will get many of these. But I might change my mind when I see your swatches ;)

    1. Ciao Bellissima! I've to say that the green is very unique! and gosh knows I have many MANY pastel greens, and not one in my collections matches this one!! The blue is not that unique, though.
      bacioni!! xxx

    1. Hi Nailderella! I had a coupon of -10% and the shipping costed 4.99, so I would say the shipping was for free in the end!

    2. oh that's great!! ;) I want 2 of the new zoya (pixie dust) but I don't want to pay too much for shipping. Even 4.99 is not too much. so that's great to know! thanks!

  6. Hi Nati, OMG you got them already???? I am stalking the UK Zoya site for this Collection since WEEKS and will have to wait another two till they become available - would you recommend nailtec? And what a nice tradition of yours to get yourself a spring collection every year. I think I might turn this into a Tradition of mine too ;-). I plan on getting this Collection, as I did with so many other Zoya Collections I have to admit ;-). xxx

    1. Hi Christine! yep, I ordered them on January 18th so it's been a while they're available on this site. I've been buying from nailetc.com since december 2009 and never had a problem with them. They accept paypal and they pack thoroughly. The shipping prices are also quite reasonable. So, I would recommend it.
