Zoya Irresistible Collection Swatches

Zoya Irresistible Summer 2013: Swatches and Review

*Disclaimer-Polishes sent for review*

Another Monday post!  For this post I have swatches and my review for the Zoya Irresistible Collection.  This collection is the counterpart to the six cream polishes which you can find here.  This collection features six metallic foil polishes in a rainbow of bright colors.

I will explain now that all of the polishes had similar formulas.  They were all on the thinner side but did not flood my cuticles or give me any trouble.  The first coat showed visible nail line but this was remedied with a slightly thicker second coat.  I used two coats for all of the swatches with no base or top coat.  Dry time was average.

First up is Zoya Kerry, a yellow gold foil metallic.  This was a little bit more of a yellowy gold and seemed to be a big cooler toned as opposed to most warm toned golds.  Very pretty, I could see this being perfect for a party!

Next up is Zoya Tinsley, a rose gold metallic foil.  I thought this description was spot on.  It reminded me of rose gold in a bottle and had golden foil undertones.  This was the first one that I tried because of how pretty it was :)

Next up is Zoya Bobbi, a hot magenta pink metallic foil.  Spot on again!   This one had silvery foil undertones and was very pretty on.  I've already used it for some nail art. 

Below is my surprise favorite, Zoya Amy, a red orange foil metallic.  I normally don't like oranges but there is something about this one that I love.  I think it is how vibrant it shows up on the nail, a perfect summer color!  This one also has gold foil undertones but I found it surprisingly wearable on my cool skintone.  

Next up is Zoya Hazel, described by Zoya as a blue green foil metallic.  This one seemed like a dusty blue to me and had silver foil undertones.  It actually reminded me of the color of a foil wrapped Easter chocolate.  I wouldn't really consider this a summer color, I think it would be perfect for spring and fall though.

Last up is Zoya Rikki, a fern green metallic foil.  This polish also had silver foil undertones.  I had the same issue with the color on this one, too much like a foil Easter chocolate.  I think it would work better for spring, although the color is still really pretty.

Overall, these polishes all had a great formula and applied very easily.  I think some of the colors were best suited for other seasons but my surprise favorites were Amy, Bobbi, and Tinsley.  

What do you think of these metallic foils?  Will you be picking up any?  Don't forget about Zoya's Earth Day promo where you can pick up these polishes for half off ($4).  You can see my post about it here.
