Zoya Naturel Deux Swatches and Review

Zoya has released a fall collection of neutral polishes which is a perfect complement to their summer neutral collection.  The difference?  These are the bolder, richer grown up sisters that are ready to go out on the town with the lastest of falls fashion trends!  Six gorgeous rich creams that range from shades of rose to coffee.  Just describing them sounds decadent!  These are in order from left to right:  Madeline, Aubrey and Marnie.  Madeline is what I would call a light mauve while Aubrey is a deeper mauve.  Marnie leans towards the plum and is darker but still tasteful…
