Press samples**

Press Release - Zoya's Whispers Collection

Zoya Whisper Collection
SIX NEW TRANSITIONAL SHADES 
ZOYA WHISPERS

Experience color serenity with this muted and tranquil palette of transitional nail neutrals.
·      Cala - ZP823: A soft nude with a kiss of warmth that will flatter most skin tones.
·      April - ZP824: A light, rosy toned neutral that is a modern take on blush.
·      Eastyn - ZP825: A subtle grayed grape that is more interesting than mauve and
      gives a modern alternative that is ever so wearable.
·      Misty - ZP827: An easy to wear taupe that is an updated version of gray with
      just a touch of green to make it daring.
·        Ireland - ZP826: A uniquely wearable green that is muted enough to make it subtle
      yet still interesting. This green is well balanced between blue & yellow so it’s
      flattering on all skin tones.
·         Lake - ZP828: A softened blue that gives the effect of serene water with just a
       hint of vibrancy to preserve its luminosity.
