Zoya Twist Collection 2009 - Spring!

Hi All
I finally got my hands on the new Zoya Twist collection, and thank goodness I did... I am in love with it! This is a fantastic collection for spring... and the colours may well see you into summer too! When I saw the promo's for this collection, I was somewhat a little sceptical as to if the colours would suit my skin tone. I have a olive skin tone and I find colours with too much of a yellow base look horrific on me. I am glad to say that the new Zoya collection looks FAB!!
Here are some swatches, the first one being Moxie. This colour is a lovely creamy berry with what looks like a blue undertone throughout it. This has an excellent application, was not streaky at all and with 2 coats you had the desired effect matching the bottle. The lasting quality of this polish was also excellent! ... It reminds me of OPI's My throne for a cranberry scone but only better!. This colour I think could really be worn in winter too, it has a little winter feel to it. I think I am going to have to get a back up bottle of this baby!

Barbie, Hehe great name for this gem of a colour. In the bottle this one looks like a creme, but when you apply this colour it seems a little sheer, so 2-3 coats for this one gives you a lovely colour. As for the colour, I am partial to pinks and love this "barbie" pink. I think the little shimmer throughout is a really lovely effect. This colour defiantly makes me think of spring!

Jo ~ I adore this colour! that's all I want to say.... heheh no I will blab on about this one. This a lovely dreamy blue but packed full of shimmer. I love the fact that this colour looks greyish blue in the sun but in the shade you have a lovely muted sky blue. The application is excellent and 2 coats will sort you out with this colour. I have to say I was sceptical as to as to whether or not this would look ok on me, but my doubts were put to rest as soon as I put it on... I LOVE this colour. I think that this one is my favourite of the whole collection. Its really a summer/spring colour but could brighten up your winter too!

This colour is a muted grey/silver with what looks to me a hint of blue. I adore this grey its not too creme but not too shimmer, its PERFECT!

Oh Yum this is a great coral pink with lots of shimmer. This one is excellent to apply and looks really "girly". Its defiantly a keeper!
Oh boy I have left my favourite till last. Malia, I am so in love with this colour. This colour is such a dreamy purple. It takes only 2 coats to be fully opaque and totally glossy. I could not stop staring at my nails after I put this one on. It is the best one out of the entire collection and screams SPRING!
Well have to hand it to Zoya they released a great collection for spring!

I *just* ordered Malia - every swatch I've seen is so lovely, and who could resist a polish named after an Obama? This is definitely a cute collection...
