Zoya Dove

After having this beautiful creme on my wish list for a while, I was so excited when I finally found it. This was exactly what I needed in the aftermath of those massive glitterbombs!

Zoya Dove swatch

Zoya Dove is perfectly named; this dove grey polish is so soft and pretty! It's practically a pastel, which makes it a great shade for spring, but it's easily versatile enough to wear in any season (because I'm so worried about being seasonally appropriate, right?). It was opaque in two coats, but I added a third for these photos, just to be safe. It's worth mentioning that it wasn't a great self-leveler, but rushing my top coat (SV) smoothed things out just fine.

As much as I love glitter and shimmer and all things fancy, Zoya Dove is the first creme I've worn in a while that I haven't immediately started thinking about embellishing with some sort of top coat or nail art. It really is refreshing!

  1. Nah, this is good year round and one of my FAVES! Some yellow leaves would make it more fall like, but sometimes a plain colors is nice too.

    1. Thanks, Jenni Lee! Man, now you have me thinking about nail art for it. If I only had more stamping plates! And also knew how to stamp. ;)

    1. Thank you, Sharra! I'm glad it's one of the labels that does find its way here. Collections are slow to arrive, but they do eventually seem to make it. ;)

    1. Thank you so much, Jenn! I've been spending a lot of times with glitters, shimmers, foils, etc., but this reminded me how much a nice creme can really stand on its own without anything fancy on top. :)

  12. This is a perfect shade for now...it's not a nude nail but it's still an acting neutral. I am going to dig my Dove out!

    1. Excellent call, thanks!! Yeah, I hadn't realised before what a pretty neutral a nice grey could be, but now I'm so into this shade. :D

  16. Oh I love me some Dove. Looks great on your skin tone too. Don't you love it when you can wear a shade plain and appreciate it?

    1. It really did feel good! Like, physically calming and relaxing, good! Given my penchant for glitter I think it's probably a good idea for me to keep my eye out for shades like this too, to give my eyeballs a break from time to time. ;)

      Thank you very much!
