Zoya’s Irresistible Collection is a bold, rich metallic take on summer.  The colours are bright, pigmented, but slightly deepened and they would transition well into the autumn.  And because of the metallic/foil finish, it is irresistible to me!  All the polishes are on the thicker side and all have a very intense, dense glitter that dries down to a foil finish that feels smooth to the touch.  I applied 2 coats for each swatch, which gave full coverage in most of the colours.  Three of the colours are cool/silver-toned

and the other 3 are warm/gold-toned.

Here are the swatches!


Rikki – a leafy green polish with silver, metallic glitter.   This is not super deep, nor is it pastel coloured.  Just in-between, medium toned.  The green does not stand out against the silver glitter, so the colour is not as intense as the other polishes.  I would say that the green and the silver colours are evenly balanced.  Nice colour.
