When I was at the Art Institute of Chicago last summer, two things made me well up with emotion. Seeing Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, and not just because of its appearance in Ferris Bueller, and Claude Monet’s Water Lillies. I even snagged a selfie with it once my tears subsided.
So, while there isn’t a specific reference to Water Lillies in Zoya’s upcoming Spring 2014 Awaken collection, featuring glitter topper Monet, it’s hard not to see the series’ influence. Keep reading to get an up close preview of the seven new lacquers coming our way.

Are you excited for these new spring shades from Zoya? What do you think of Monet as a topper?
I’m pretty skeptical when brands throw around the term holographic. It’s such an overused buzzword that doesn’t tend to deliver. While I spot holographic glitter particles, I’m most curious to see that one in person.
