For Spring 2008, Zoya has two different collections, each with six shades, Blissful and PurityBlissful is a beautiful collection of creamy pastels, while Purity is composed of sheerer pastels ideal for manicures (and I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have visions of bridal nails with these colors, too).  Today I’d like to show you swatches from Blissful.

It was actually really hard to pick a favorite shade out of the six, because I loved them all!  Let me say that one really versatile color is Penelope, which is a darker pink-peach color that’s incredibly creamy and goes on smooth.  It isn’t too warm, so I think even cooler-toned hands can pull this one off with no issues.  I think anyone entranced by pastels will find Laurie a very lovely shade of pale, milky pink.  It is also a cream finish leaving fingers looking incredibly soft and feminine.  Miley is much like Laurie, only it is a milky pastel lavender.  Lulu is a warm shade of peach that’s soft and subtle, and I see this as a great shade for spring, but also a nice way to transition into summer.  Zanna is a mauvey-purple with pink in it, and it also has a creamy finish.  I found this applied so easily and well, with no streaking or worries about distribution.  Felicity rosey color with golden shimmer, which makes it completely unlike the other five in the Blissful family.  It’s a fun color, and I like that it is the odd-one-out with its shimmery composition.  Overall, I liked the buildability and opacity of these pastel colors; they give me a way to get less in-your-face nails while still getting a good bit of color when I don’t want to opt for straight out sheers.

Check out swatches of the other five polishes…

  1. Ohh I really love Felicity :) I’m not a huge huge fan of cream polishes for some reason. But I do really like Penelope as well. Thanks for the review/swatches!
