Zoya Beach Collection: Review and Swatches

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I'm so excited to show you one half of Zoya's summer polish collection today! It was waiting for me when I got home from work and I couldn't wait to swatch them all. I took them outdoors with me just so that I could admire the bottles in the sun.
There are six shades, five of them are cremes and one has additional soft frosty shimmer. Without further ado, let's take a look at them.

Reagan, a raspberry magenta color. It is similar to Zoya Juicy, but lighter and more vibrant.

Lara is a bolder pink. Perhaps not as blue as this photo might suggest, it has a juicy quality on your nails that you wouldn't expect from the bottle!

Arizona is a medium orange shade. Perfect summer orange color, not too bright nor too dull.

Shelby, a pink creme that looks more vivid on my hands than how mild it appears in the bottle. I tried to color correct this shade, because it's a bit more intense in person... but I think it's still not quite right. It's more lively than you would guess!

Tracie is a soft pea green with a touch of shimmery silver frost. I like it, it was a pleasant surprised to see a little shimmer among all the cremes!

The last shade, Wednesday is one of my favorites. A light sea green, there's no better color to invoke strong desires to spend a day at the beach.

Even though there are three pinkish shades, they're not just lighter and darker shades of the same color. Pointer and ring finger are painted with Lara, pinky is Shelby and on my middle finger I used Reagan. I find Reagan is a bit berry, Lara has a bit more red.

The formula on all of these were fantastic, leveling really well. Tracie did seem a tad 'sticky' but it wasn't a hassle to apply or anything. Tracie, Shelby and Wednesday were three coaters for me, but all the rest were perfect in two. In fact, Reagan looks fantastic with one generous coat, but I did two because cameras see more than the eye can.

I really liked that all the colors are very clean for summer, not dull or dusty at all. Perfect for complimenting the long days spent outside in the sun, perhaps by a pool with a fruity drink in hand. Also, how neat is having a polish named Wednesday? **snaps fingers to the Addams Family theme song**

What do you think of these punchy summer shades? Will you be buying any of these Zoya polishes from Zoya.com ?

Stay tuned for the second half of the swatches, Zoya Surf in the next few days!
