Zoya Summer 2013: Stunning Collection
*Disclaimer-Polishes sent for review*Let me just get this out of the way...these polishes really are Stunning! Happy Thursday everyone, one day closer to Friday is always fine with me. Today I have swatches and a review of the Zoya Summer 2013 Stunning Collection. This collection consists of six cream polishes. Formulas varied by polish and will be described below. Take a look at these pretties...
First up is Zoya Darcy, a sunny yellow cream. I used three coats for the photos, no topcoat. The formula was good for a yellow, slightly thick, but nothing unmanageable. I really liked this color, so sunny and bright. I think it would look extra pretty with a tan, for which my skin is the opposite of :)
The next color is Zoya Thandie, which is described by Zoya as a citrus orange cream. I don't normally like orange, but to me this is a juicy cantaloupe color. I really enjoyed this color because it is a cool toned orange, which works well with my cool skin tone. I used two easy coats below, with no topcoat. Formula was fantastic, no problems.
Third is Zoya Micky, described by Zoya as an amazing coral cream. I didn't think that this polish was a coral color, I considered it much more pink, almost like a light watermelon color. The formula was a bit tricky, it was on the thin side, and I ended up using three coats below. Although this polish was thin, it didn't flood my cuticles and I didn't find it unmanageable. Definitely worth it for the color.
Fourth is Zoya Yana, which Zoya describes as a Geranium pink cream. I consider this color a very pink leaning medium red...if that makes any sense. It reminded me of the color of a red Starburst, which are my favorite flavor. I don't usually pick reds to wear, but I ended up really loving this color. The tone was cool which I really liked. Formula was fantastic, two easy coats below.
Next up is Zoya Rocky, a serene blue cream. Loved this one! Formula was wonderful again, two easy coats with no problems whatsoever. This blue has a dusty quality that I really liked, but it is still bright and fun for summer. This color reminded me of a calm ocean.
Last up is Zoya Josie, a grassy green cream. This polish is exactly that, grassy green with a slightly dusty quality to it. This polish had a classic Zoya formula which was excellent. I used two easy coats for this polish.
Honestly, I loved every color in this collection. I am a huge fan of gorgeous, glossy cream polishes and Zoya delivered with all six. While the formulas on Darcy and Micky with a tiny bit difficult, the color payoff and glassy finish was well worth it. I can see using these colors with a lot of nail art throughout the spring and summer. If I had to pick my favorites, I would pick Darcy, Thandie, and Yana. Another great collection from Zoya.
These polishes retail for $8 and can be found at Zoya.com.
