Nail Polish Colors Spring 2018: The Zoya Thrive Collection, Swatches and Color Descriptions

It's the first full day of spring but it doesn't look like spring here in the Philadelphia area! Snow is coming down fast and furious with the possibility of 12+ inches! 😭 This is  our fourth Nor'Easter this March. Ridiculous!!!  At least my nails look like spring!
