I’m back with part II of the Zoya Summer collection 2012, Surf!
I love glitter/shimmer on the nails and this combined with the punchy, bright colours, made for some intense shades.
Actually, all the colours in this collection had a foil finish; not chunky glitter but there is a prominent thread of silver flowing through the formula. These were all well pigmented and I used 2 coats for all of the swatches. This formula was thicker that the ones from the Beach collection, so I would suggest working quickly before they dried out and got a little gloopy. These polishes will stand out on the beach!
First in this collection is Carly – a dark, plum and silver and purple foil mixed in.
I was actually a little surprised with this colour selection, as I thought that this one is kinda dark for what I prefer for fall. I would rock this in September though. And my humblest apologies! Lots of swatching and very, very dry hands! 🙁
Kimber – is a bright, fuchsia with silver foil.
A beautiful colour, very vivid. I think it’s a cool toned pink, with some blue undertones. I think this colour would look amazing on every skin tone, because it is so bright!! Love it!! I wore this as a pedicure colour.
Rory – a pale pink, with a prominent silver and pink foil glitter running through the colour.
A pretty colour, but I like something with a little more punch!
Myrta – A fiery, reddish-orange with red and gold foil glitter.
This is what I’m talking about!! Love it!!! An outstanding colour for those of us with deep skintones!! Also I think this would work well with anyone who has a warm skintone.
Meg – a leafy, green with silver foil glitter.
It’s like the louder, more glittery sister of Tracie from the Beach collection. There is not a lot of blue in this colour, so it’s not very intense, but still a soft, beautiful colour!
Zuza – The last of the collection and this is one of my favourites!! You know I love a blue nail polish!!
A medium-dark, bright, turquoise with silver and turquoise foil glitter. It is a lot more blue than my collection fave Wednesday but they work well together.
Definitely check out the Surf and the Beach collections. They are available online from Zoya for $8 each.
