Summer is rapidly approaching, and today I'm gonna show you some bright cremes from the Zoya Island Fun collection to give you a jump-start into the season and put some fun in your step.
To kick things off, here's Zoya Cecilia, a green-leaning teal:
|Zoya Cecilia...Oh Cecilia, I'm down on my knees...|
|I'm begging you please to come home...|
Cecilia is the sort of summer color I love: bright and fun, but with a subtle hint of sophistication. This is two coats; you might be able to get away with one if you're careful. Formula and application were wonderful--no pulling, no uneven patches even with the first coat. This went on easily and without fuss, as did all of the cremes in this collection.
Zoya warns to wear a base coat with this polish because it might stain; I did just that and had no problems at all. I would never have thought to warn you about it from my own experience.
Next up is Zoya Demetria, a pin-up cherry-red creme:
This polish sizzles--hot, hot, hot! This polish is salsa dancing and cocktails at sunset. It's glamorous and sexy and flirty and fun--can you tell I love it?! This is two problem-free coats--application could not have gone more perfectly.
Next we have Zoya Jace, a medium avocado-green creme:
Oh. My. Goodness. I can't say enough things about this polish--this is my favorite polish in the collection (yes, even more than Demetria!) and my new favorite shade of green. This is something that Zoya does really well--they give their color a little twist so that it's lovely for the season, but also something special. This isn't just another summer green; it has a lush, tropical feel to it that makes me want to take a trip into the rainforest. Just gorgeous, and with excellent formula and application (this is two coats).
And then there's Nana--despite the name, this is not your grandmother's fuchsia creme:
If Jace is the leaves in a tropical rainforest, Nana is the flowers you'll find in that lush paradise (in fact, I've just given myself an idea for some nail art...hmmm...). This is another HOT, versatile shade, made for sundresses and picnics. Two coats, problem-free application.
Zoya Serenity is a periwinkle-purple creme:
Am I holding the wrong bottle in two of those pictures? Yes--sometimes I have to trick my camera into behaving, so pay no attention to that bottle in the bottom two pictures, gaze only upon the lovely polish shining out from the photo...This shade makes me want to jump on a cruise ship to Hawaii and spend my afternoons lolling by the pool while sipping a pina colada. It has a dusty feel to it that's exotic and alluring. This is two easy coats, again with excellent formula.
Hey! How about a summery blue? Zoya Talia is a sophisticated turquoise:
Overall, I love this for a summer collection. It hits every note you need, but with a touch of special that' I've come to expect and love from Zoya. The rich, deeply pigmented colors speak to my soul, and pair up perfectly with my summer wardrobe. Oh, and because they're so pigmented, they also stamp, so you can get your nail art on.
These polishes are on sale now anywhere Zoya is sold, including Amazon, or you can buy them directly from Zoya's website. You can also find them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
