Zoya- Blogger Trio

Birchbox got together with some bloggers and had them submit their ideas for a Spring collection. The colors were voted on and here is the first (hopefully of more to come!) Blogger Trio. Best of all? They are jellies! I used three coats and NO TOPCOAT for the swatches below. Welcome to shiny-town, my friends.

First up is Kate, a pinkish grapefruit. I think Kate leans more cherry but my camera definitely picked up more red than necessary. You can see in the pictures below that my camera tried to change the color of Kate with every shot! The last photo is the most color accurate.

Next up is Coraline, a warm juicy tangerine. I am totally in love with this orange. I thought it reminded me of OPI- Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? so I took some comparison photos. Stay tuned for that post early next week ;)

Even Coraline wanted to be red!

And now Belle, a coppery pink featuring microscopic bits of iridescent glitter. Here are three coats of Belle on its own but I thought it would work great layered over Kate and Coraline too.

Overall I LOVE this collection. These colors scream Spring to me and I'm working on some fun nail art with them now. Expect the next couple of posts from me to be all about these polishes! The formula was a dream to work with. Smooth and flowed easily on the nail. The jelly consistency allowed the color to really build on the nail.
