I truly believe that this texture works really well with richly pigmented colours, and not pastels.  I love the bright colour mixed with the matte finish mixed with the crystal like glitter.  They all accent each other.  And since nail art continues to be very popular for the upcoming seasons, you can use these polishes as accents with your more vampy nail colours.  For all the polishes, I applied 2 coats in these swatches and note that they are thicker in texture.  For the best results, apply as thin of a layer as possible and let dry between layers.  Also, when using these, since they are technically a matte nail polish, don’t use a base coat or top coat.  I get about 2-3 days of chip –free manicure.  The summer collection is still available at the Zoya website and they retail for US$9 each.   This media sample was provided to me.
