My girl Leandra over at Nail Polish Therapy did the honors of reviewing these samples of Zoya’s Awaken line. I am soooo here for her gorgeous nails and she has really done this collection quite the honor.
Sweet, dainty and girly, this collection just yells whimsical. You’ve got your perfect subtle shades that are ideal for Spring, but they also make for great summer pedicures, as well.
Dot is a pink petal cream and it really reminds me of cotton candy. It’s one of those shades that you maaaay be able to deal with even if you aren’t a fan of the color pink.
Cole is a peach whisper cream and by far my absolute favorite of the bunch. It’s so hard to find a true and authentic orange sherbet shade that applies like buttah. Cole is IT!
Hudson is described as a purple orchid metallic with a silver shimmer and it’s really one of those unexpected colors in a collection. I loooove a purple cream, but this purple metallic goodness here is just glorious.
Dillion is a green mint metallic and is, of course, a sibling of Hudson. She’s just as fabulous and shimmery.
Rebel is a blue sky metallic that is quite reminiscent of shimmery ocean water.
Brooklyn is a white-gold shimmer metallic and how refreshing is it to have a yellow that isn’t a hot and streaky mess?
Applied like dreams, the kids of the Awaken collection are such a great fit in Zoya’s lineup. Also included is Monet. This multi-colored, cellophane holographic special effect topper is an additional $10 which is nice but I’m thinking you could probably go without it. Each bottle in the Awaken collection retails for $9 a pop and you can get the entire collection for $54 from Zoya.com.
Which shade is your fave?
