The other day I swatched the Zoya Irresistible Collection for you, and today I give you another part to Zoya’s Summer 2013 Collections, the Stunning Collection. This collection is made up of six creme nail polishes in bright summer-appropriate shades, so if you’re a big fan of the smooth, buttery texture of creme nail polish, this set is for you!
[This review features press sample(s) sent for consideration.]
The collection looks really beautiful as a whole in the packaging. I like that all the colors are bright and cheerful, which is what I expect from a summer collection!
Josie is a grassy green creme. It’s really a lovely green shade that reminds me of bright fields of green grass during the summertime. This took two coats to be opaque, as did all the polishes in this collection.
Rocky is a vivid sky blue creme, and it wins for my favorite in the collection. Since these look super shiny and smooth once you put on a top coat, the color just really stands out on this one. It’s very crispy and clear, like a swimming pool!
Yana is a hot fuchsia pink. Gorgeous, classic, and sophisticated. This is a shade that will never go out of style and always looks great as a manicure or pedicure!
Micky is a pastel Barbie-pink creme. Again, a very classic shade that will stand the test of time on the fingernails and toenails. These shades are really pretty in the spring and summer and I often find myself wearing much more pink during these seasons.
Thandie is a hot orange-coral creme. This is my almost-tied-for-favorite of the bunch. It’s incredibly bright and playful and I think this will look great against tanned skin. In fact, this shade was made for those with darker skin! Beautiful.
Darcy is a bright yellow creme. Let’s talk yellow nail polish…it almost always has a troublesome formula. This one was a little troublesome. It was a bit watery and goopy, which made it difficult to get a nice, even, smooth coat of nail polish on the nail. I love the bright, hot color, but I wish it would have applied better. This was the only color of the six that was a little troublesome.
I had to post a picture of my Yoda bear here. We rescued him about five years ago (time flies), and he is hilarious when I am swatching nail polish. He always wants to go outside while I’m swatching and he often just sits and sunbathes in the grass since it’s so hot here now. His expressions crack me up!
Overall, the Zoya Stunning Collection is a great option for those of you who love creme nail polishes. The colors are vibrant and have a fantastic formula with the exception of “Darcy” which was a little more difficult to work with.
The Zoya Stunning Collection is available for Summer 2013 and retails for $48.00 USD for the six-piece collection. You can also purchase each nail polish individually for $8.00 USD. You can find this collection at Ulta stores nationwide, as well as online at Zoya’s website.
