A Tale of Two Purples... Zoya True Collection

I've been sitting on the Zoya True collection for a while. And I remembered the promise I made to myself that if I didn't feel up to swatching an ENTIRE collection, I wouldn't make myself feel obligate. The other day I felt like I was in a purple mood. Consequently, my guilt over having neglected Zoya lately caused me to put one purple on one hand, and one on the other...

Colors
Now,  Zoya describes these collections as the "new neutrals" on their website. I agree with that description for Lotus, but Tru feels very warm to me. Zoya Tru reminds me a little of a tame Roxy. Zoya Lotus reminds me a little of Kelly.  That being said, I think they are both gorgeous and the subtle red shimmer in both colors adds to the depth.

Application
My standard Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator topped with Seche Vite. But make sure you have good lighting - I had some inconsistency issues. Probably due more to my own personal error.

Wear
Fantastic. After two days I still don't have a single chip. That's huge for me!

Bottom Line
If you're a purple nut like me, you probably have something similar. However these are both excellent colors if you're inclined to make the purchase.

Full Disclosure
These polishes were furnished to me by Zoya for the purpose of use and review. I was not paid to provide this review, and have provided my honest opinion of the product. I am unaffiliated with Zoya, Qtica and the Art of Beauty.
