Zoya Naturel Deux: A transitional collection for summer/fall 2014

Disclaimer: Press samples. See bottom.

Zoya Naturel Deux transitional nail polish collection summer fall 2014 review and swatches on BeautyJudy

There’s that summer-to-fall time – when it’s hot during the day and cool at night (if you’re in a seasonal weather region, anyway!). That mid-September day when you might be getting sick of neons but you aren’t ready for a blackened red shimmer yet.

Introducing Zoya‘s answer to that transitional time: Naturel Deux.

Naturel Deux is a six-piece collection of neutrals that’s meant to provide a bridge between the seasons. It’s also a follow-up to the brand’s Naturel collection from last winter. Check out swatches – first photo is the polish with flash (I was missing my beloved sunshine this weekend for swatching) and the second photo is in natural light outdoors.

Spencer:

Spencer is described as a camel creme. Shown here in two coats, this one is a few shades darker than what would be mannequin hands, or my skin tone neutral, but it was so close that in the lighting of my living room as I swatched, I had a tough time making sure I didn’t paint my cuticles!

Chanelle:

Chanelle is described as a toasted almond creme. Shown here in two coats, this has a really nice milk chocolate quality to it.

Emilia:

Emilia is described as a dark chocolate creme. This one seemed to have some green undertones to me, which I liked. It seems like a unique color – in my collection, at least! I’ve shown it here in two coats.

Madeline:

Madeline is described as a muted rose creme. Shown in two coats, it’s a color that makes me think of tea cups, mini roses on wall paper and shabby chic. Very feminine!

Aubrey:

Aubrey is described as a medium mauve creme. This one is shown in two coats. For me, this one really spoke to that transitional concept – it feels bright enough for summer but with a vampy touch that makes it a nice fall choice too.

Marney:

Marney is described as a deep warm plum creme. Shown here in two coats. This one is a cozy plum-based neutral.

I didn’t have any issues in application of any of these nail polishes. Zoya cremes are generally very consistent for me, and two-coaters.

My favorites are Emilia, Spencer and Aubrey. I don’t generally go ga-ga for neutrals, but I appreciate them. Especially since I work in a corporate environment where sometimes a neutral nail is a necessary accessory!

I want to experiment with nail art in the coming weeks, and post something on what you can do with these. So stay tuned for that in about two or three weeks!

The Naturel Deux collection is available on the Zoya site here for $9 a piece or $54 for all of them.

What do you think of Naturel Deux? Are there any must-haves here for you?!

    gorgeous nude polishes!

    • BeautyJudy

      They are!

  • http://www.cosmetically-challenged.com Melody Robinson Wright

    I love how these shades are super transitional for fall. They seem more grown up to me compared to the last neutrals.

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s a great way to describe it!

  • Aleya Bamdad

    These polishes are nice for fall and winter.

    • BeautyJudy

      agreed Aleya!

  • http://www.geniabeme.com/ Eugenia

    These all look really pretty but I will pass because I like more FUN colors! Well I might actually pick up one or two of these :P

    • BeautyJudy

      LOL! I don’t blame you. I generally like color – after all, the tagline here is “reveling in a love of color!” I desperately want to conjure up some nail art with these, I want to try a spun sugar mani with some of them!

  • http://theplasticdiaries.com Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries

    I think this is a gorgeous collection but definitely a Fall palette. I would only wear a couple of the nudes in summer.

    • BeautyJudy

      Yes, I don’t really wear neutrals in summer, but come September, when we’re still “technically” in summer, and the temps get cooler at night/morning, I might! I sense a NYFW mani with these soon :)

  • http://www.beautybymissl.com/ beautybymissl

    These are great shades for fall. I like Aubrey from these.

    • BeautyJudy

      Aubrey is pretty!

  • http://www.portraitofmai.com/ Mai

    Thank you for the swatches! I think I like Spencer best (it might be fairly close to my skin tone)

    • BeautyJudy

      Oh, Yes, that would look great on you!

  • http://www.painted-ladies.com/ Sheila Arkee

    These are pretty colors – I love neutrals for Fall.

    • BeautyJudy

      Agreed!

  • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

    gorgeous swatches! mauves are my favessss

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Brooke!

  • Anastasia

    Great swatches! I’m really loving this transitional collection.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Anastasia!

    They just remind me of ice cream.

    • BeautyJudy

      ice cream! LOL I think Spencer is the only one I could envision as an ice cream flavor. Coffee ice cream? Salted caramel ice cream? Damn you Destany, now I want ice cream! LOL

  • FabZilla_Kath

    Great swatches once again, I can’t even pick one favorite!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Kath!

  • Betzy Carmona

    I really like emilia

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s my fav!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    Beautiful swatches! I was impressed with the formula on all of them

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Lisa! Me too.

  • http://beautylitfromwithin.blogspot.com Nidia Doherty

    I really like these, but some of them are so similar to each other, I can’t decide which I want. Probably next time they have a nice sale, I’ll get a few! (I already got something with the recent flash sale..) I love Zoya’s sales, and their polishes! Great swatches, too.

    • BeautyJudy

      Yes; a collection like this sometimes feels more like choices for skin tones vs. a wardrobe of color

  • Brittany

    Okay, so I can’t wait to get my hands on these. It’s a pretty collection but it may look “meh” on darker skin so we’ll seeeeee.

    • BeautyJudy

      I hope if you get them that they look fab on you. I love to see colors like this across different skin tones!

  • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

    this collection looks beautiful!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s very classic

  • Justina

    These look wonderful! I am definitely drawn to neutrals on my nails.

    • BeautyJudy

      I’m usually drawn to loud obnoxiousness on mine, lol!!

  • Leslie

    I think Marney and Aubrey are my favs

    • BeautyJudy

      Marney is nice. Aubrey is one of my favs!

  • cindyprimebeauty

    I know these are transitional colors but nothing blows me away.

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s ok! Not every collection or polish will be for everyone :) I can’t wait to nail art on them. Neutrals are not my sweet spot, I love color!

  • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

    I sort of like Emilia

    • BeautyJudy

      Emilia is the one I like most, it’s unique to me

  • Ange

    I need Spencer, right now!!!

    • BeautyJudy

      I keeping thinking of Spencer from PLL everytime I see the name, lol

  • http://www.slashedbeauty.com/ Miranda Mendoza

    I LOOOVE this collection. I like neutral nails to match every outfit

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s a great point. I wear a lot of bright clothing and neutral nails are good for that!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I want ‘em all. Trying to decide which one or two I will buy during the flash sale if it’s still on.

    • BeautyJudy

      I would have to have Emilia, but that’s me! lol

  • http://makeupbykim-porter.com/blog Kim Porter

    I want Spencer, Madeline, and aubrey

    • BeautyJudy

      Nice picks!!!!

  • Deest

    Your swatches are great. Zoya just posted a flash sale code on their Facebook page, so I bought Emilia from this collection. I am liking the browns more than the mauves from this collection.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thank you Deest! Emilia is my favorite, nice choice!!!
