Zoya Naturel Deux (2)

**These products were provided for an unbiased review. All opinions are my own.**

We all know how much I enjoyed Zoya's first Naturel Collection so I was particularly excited to see them come out with another one this year, building on the same berry and brown shades that I love so much. This collection is a bit darker and a touch warmer, making it a perfect collection to transition from summer into fall. Such enticing colors! In all the photos I've done two coats over a base coat with no top coat. The formula in all of the colors were the perfection we've come to expect from Zoya.

I'll start off with my favorite of the collection, Spencer. When I first opened the box I fell in love with all the berry shades and I texted Anna and Erin that they were gorgeous! (they are) but that the browns were just meh. Goes to show that you shouldn't judge by first impressions because this polish is so deliciously yummy on the nails. I plan to wear this one to death over the next several months.

Next up we have Chanelle and I immediately thought to myself, "Aha! They named it this because it's a dupe for Chanel Particulière!" but, no, this one is a touch lighter and much warmer in tone, more of a camel beige than Spencer.

The darkest of the browns is Emilia, which made me think of "Emelia: The Five-Year-Old Goth Girl" because it's the perfect shade for her — not black, but a rich coffee brown that's much more suitable for a goth child.

Madeline is my favorite of the new berry shades, just enough darker than last year's Brigitte that I definitely need both. These colors are so flattering on my skin tone that I feel I must have every shade!

Aubrey is the color of a summer plum, vibrant and juicy. Another favorite.

Marney is only the tiniest bit darker than Aubrey but quite a bit warmer in tone, sort of like if you took that juicy plum and put it on the grill for a bit.
Zoya Marney
Verdict: another winner! Neutral colors and creme finishes are my favorites and these fit the bill all around, especially Spencer and Madeline.
