Zoya Rolando Santana Trio-Swatches and Review

 *Press Sample
Hi everyone, welcome to Tuesday.  If you read my post from yesterday, clearly you will see I was having a bad day.  I always feel guilty after writing such posts, but I know that the blogging community is an accepting place for the most part.  Thank you to everyone who posted a comment, I do read them all and appreciate the advice.  As for my plan of action, I re-joined the YMCA yesterday and am starting a fitness schedule today.  As for the rest, I'm just going to see how it goes and go from there.  

 Today I have a really amazing trio of polishes to show you.  It's like a combination of all of my favorite colors of cream polishes, minus the blue of course :)  This trio is a set of custom polishes that were created as a collaboration with the clothing designer Rolando Santana for his Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Week collection.  The inspiration for his collection came from the iconic artist Frida Kahlo.  This collection is The Rolando Santana Alegre Collection.

The first color I have is called Natasha, which is a rosy nude cream polish.  I loved this polish!  I've always been a fan of opaque nudes because I think they look so chic and sophisticated and this polish definitely delivered.  The formula on this polish was perfect and it covered fully in two easy coats.  I love the muted rose color of this polish because it makes it special compared to a regular nude polish.  All polish swatches are without topcoat. 

Next up is Maria, which is a purple fuchsia cream.  I had a hard time capturing the cool-ness of the tone of this polish, so it needs to be said that the second photo is the most color accurate.  There was really nothing about this polish I didn't like.  For me I would describe it as a cool-toned medium plum color.  The formula was fantastic as well.  I used two easy coats.

Last up is Sara, which is a bright sunny yellow cream.  My favorite color is yellow so I really loved this polish.  This polish is so bright and cheerful!  As far as yellows go, this one had a pretty good formula.  I used three thin coats to create an opaque finish.

Overall I was incredibly impressed by this amazing trio.  I thought all of the polishes were standouts, including the nude.  Let me know what you think!
