Zoya - Naturel Deux (2)

I have another wonderful Zoya collection to share with you all! This one is the Naturel Deux collection, or Naturel 2. You may remember the first Naturel collection which was released for spring earlier this year. Well this is pretty much a deeper, richer, more fall-friendly version!

From left to right, the colors are:
  • Madeline: Muted Rose
  • Aubrey: Medium Mauve Cream 
  • Marnie: Deep Warm Plum 
  • Emilia: Dark Chocolate 
  • Chanelle: Toasted Almond
  • Spencer: Camel Cream


Madeline is the lightest of the three purple shades. Like the first Naturel collection with its orchid tones, Madeline is a gorgeous purple. I think it's actually lighter than Odette from the Naturel collection, but more of a muted tone than Odette. I used two coats of Madeline and had great coverage! It also goes well with just about any skin tone, and it appears more neutral on the nail than in the bottle.



Aubrey is the middle of the three purple shades, and is gorgeous. I love plum shades, and this one is just perfect! It isn't too light or too dark, and is somewhat neutral so it blends with skin tones wonderfully. One reason I don't wear purple polish too often is because it contrasts with my skin in a strange way (to me at least), but this one complements it much better! I used two coats of Aubrey and got full coverage.



Marnie is the deepest purple of the three, and is somewhat of a deep plum. I personally prefer Aubrey over Marnie since it contrasts a little less with my skin tone (I don't wear as many super deep or dark colored polishes anymore), but I'm also very pale - it would look great on darker skin tones! This is another polish that is also a little different on the nail than in the bottle. I think it looks a little more muted in the bottle, but is deeper and more bold on the nail. I used two coats of Marnie and got full coverage.



Emilia is the deepest of the three brown shades. This is another one that's a little dark for my skin tone, but would complement darker skin tones much better. This one is also slightly less "green" as my photos sort of show, and is a little warmer in color. Still, Emilia is a very rich, deep chocolate brown. For how dark this shade is, I'm surprised it didn't cover a little better, but two coats still did the trick. If you apply thin coats, you might want to aim for three with Emilia though!



Chanelle is the middle of the three brown shades. It's described as "toasted almond," but it's almost like a rich caramel color to me. Like Emilia, Chanelle is a little warmer looking in person. I'm not typically into brown polishes, but I quite like this shade! It's neutral without being too nude, and will match lots of tan clothing and accessories I have. Two coats of Chanelle got me full coverage.



Spencer is the lightest of the three brown shades. Like Emilia and Chanelle above, this is another one that appears a little warmer in person. I suppose they all appear a bit different depending on the surrounding skin tone of the individual wearing them too! I quite like how Spencer is a pretty nude shade, but isn't too light. Even for my skin tone, I like how it isn't as white based, and is more brownish-tan for fall. For how light this polish is, I was surprised that two coats got me perfect coverage! Spencer is very opaque.


Like the Naturel collection, I'm really liking Naturel Deux! They are perfect shades for fall and still carry on this year's radiant orchid theme. I think Aubrey and Spencer are my favorites! I also love how different these polishes look on various skin tones since they're so neutral themselves.
If you would like to purchase the Naturel Deux collection, each full size bottle is $9 from Zoya.com, or $54 for the whole set!
