Zoya True Collection for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

Happy New Year to those on the east coast where it just turned 2012 (and other countries)!

Ittttt’ssss heeeeerrrrreeeeee! Zoya’s spring 2012 collection called True.

This collection is comprised of six fresh new spring-like colors in both a creme and shimmery form. There are some real “can’t take your eyes off them” colors in this collection, let me tell ya!

Oh and this is just one of their new goodies for spring. Check out my next post also. :)

Cho, Farah, Bevin

Skylar, Tru, Lotus

Zoya Cho

Cho is a warm vanilla/nude color with slight silvery pink shimmer. The shimmer is fairly subtle, but it’s definitely there. This almost borders on a very light camel color on me in certain lighting, which I like. It’s not too matchy matchy with my skin tone. It was a little streaky at first and I needed three coats for full coverage.

Zoya Farah

Farah is a beige creme. This one is cool toned and has more of a greyish undertone. Good formula with this one, no streaks and fully covered in two coats.

Zoya Bevin

Bevin is a light sage green creme. It’s a cool toned greyed out green. Muted. Very nice color, I really love it and don’t have a lot of sage greens in my collection yet. This was great coverage and just two coats.

Zoya Skylar

Skylar is a slate blue with tons of silver shimmer. The blue is a muted, greyed out gorgeous blue and I love the shimmer! Creamy and fabulous but on the thinner side so I used three coats.

Zoya Tru

Tru is a vivid yet deep purple with loads of red and gold shimmer. Oh. My. God. I am completely in love with this color. Not only is the base color gorgeous, but the shimmer colors make it totally glow. This is definitely my fav! Great formula and just two coats.

Zoya Lotus

Lotus is a lotus purple base with tons of pink shimmer. The base purple is a muted greyed out tone and it works so nicely with the shimmer. This is my second favorite one, it’s so pretty and also has that glowy look. This was two coats.


Nice spring collection! The colors definitely make me angsty for spring again. I think the last four are definitely the must haves, but if you can only get one or two I would suggest Tru (for sure) and either Bevin or Lotus.

Availability: January 13th on Zoya’s site.

Pricing: $8.00 each.

Soooooooo what do you think about the True collection?

    Wow, these are gorgeous! I even kind of like those nudes, even though I feel like they won’t work on me. Really a great collection!

    I’m a purple fanatic, and Tru and Lotus look really unique on top of that, so I’m definitely interested in those two!

  • December 31, 2011

    Love them! Lotus is my favorite!

    I’m not a fan of the nudes, but I love the other three. I wonder how close Skylar is to OPI I Don’t Give A Rotterdam from their Holland collection?

      I was thinking JUST the same thing! I’d love to see a comparison…both look gorgeous!

  • December 31, 2011

    Love the last four especially Skylar and Tru!

  • December 31, 2011

    Loftus…swooooon. How does it compare to Zoya Neeka?

    • December 31, 2011

      That should says Lotus, not Loftus, haha.

    • January 1, 2012

      I’m wondering the same thing…

    • January 1, 2012

      I third that thought haha

      Also, there should totally be a polish named Loftus, it could be a gritty grey crackle polish with teal and gold shimmer…or something like that : D

      • January 2, 2012

        That sounds interesting! I’d buy Loftus!

    • January 3, 2012

      It reminds me of Neeka too!

  • December 31, 2011

    Thanks for the swatches! I’m looking forward to them :)

    What an awesome New Year’s surprise! This collection is beautiful, and I can’t help but notice a resemblance to what I’ve seen of the OPI Holland collection… Thanks for posting these! x

      aaminahs mom

      Bevin is a keeper too!!!!

  • December 31, 2011

    I must have Bevin!!!

  • December 31, 2011

    Tru and Lotus jump out right away but I actually am intrigued by Cho because of the shimmer. Not something I would normally pick because it’s not very exciting but this one is nice!!!

    Hmmm, I wonder if Skylar is simular to Butter Londons Victorian?

  • December 31, 2011

    I want them all, including all 3 Flecks! So excited for the Spring collections…this one is fab! Great swatches :) Happy New Year!

    not very excited. the nudes seem rather standard, and the last two seem like repeats of the smoke/mirrors.

  • January 1, 2012

    I love Skylar and Lotus! Have to get them!

  • January 1, 2012

    o.m.gosh! i must have these!! they are sooo perfect for spring

  • January 1, 2012

    Those are gorgeous…I want all the purples!

    Lotus, Tru, Bevin and Farah need to come and live with me….lovely! Can’t wait to order them….

  • January 1, 2012

    I love Cho! How do you think this nudes compae to the ones in the Feel and Touch collections?

  • January 1, 2012

    Tru and Lotus are my favorite shades too. And I might go for Skylar when I see it in person. The first three, not for me.

    AWESOME. The textures on those last two are amazing, but I really *really* do not like anything purple. But Bevin and Skylar I’ll get for SURE, and probably Farah as well.

  • January 1, 2012

    I agree with those who feel like Tru and Lotus are repeats – I have that same feeling. The sage green is nice, but I think I have something similar. I like Skylar the best, but me and 3-coat Zoya formula just don’t seem to get along as well. Oh well.

  • January 1, 2012

    Wow, Bevin and Skylar, beautiful, eek! Skylar is very reminiscent of the OPI Holland polish and I know it is gauche to say since you don’t cover OPI but I do prefer OPI to Zoya.

  • January 1, 2012

    Lovely! Wow – a whole collection with zero reds or pinks! Love it!

  • January 1, 2012

    I’m totally in love with Bevin and Skylar. But, then, I always go for greens and blues. I love the purples, too, but can’t decide which I like more!

  • January 1, 2012

    I looked at this post on my phone, but had to come to my computer to see Tru again, love it!

    I might skip the nudes. It’s so easy to click & order the whole collection. I’ll definitely order all of the rest, including the flakies.

  • January 1, 2012

    Those purples will be mine! Love the look of all of these but especially the purple.

  • January 1, 2012

    Nude, green, blue AND purple? All of my favorite polish colors in one collection? Yes please! Love them!

  • January 1, 2012

    I can’t wait for Tru and Skylar!

    I only like the shimmery ones but I don’t think they are unique

  • January 3, 2012

    Skylar reminds me of Butter London’s Victoriana, which I have long coveted. Are they close at all?

  • January 3, 2012

    Love the last four. I think they will be my first Zoya purchases.

  • January 3, 2012

    This is so hard to resist, oh help me, please VampyVarnish, I must get all, they are just fabulous. I just hate the fact I have a lot of colors but nothing similar to these :)

  • January 4, 2012

    Skylar and Lotus are gorgeous, but I’ll probably pass on the others. I don’t actually recall seeing anything like Skylar before – AND I don’t have any blue polishes, so this will probably be my first purchase in a month or two.

    I like all of these, but I think the only one I HAVE to have is Tru. And possibly Skyler. Dearest Kelly, could you potentially do a comparison between Jo and Skyler?? (Gotta see if I can justify getting Skyler.)

  • January 12, 2012

    Not sure if this has already been said, but from the picture Bevin, reminds me of OPI’s Mermaid tears. Loving the purples and blue.
