I've got a treat for you today, swatches of the brand spankin' new Zoya Beach collection!
There are two full collections being released this summer and in this bunch, we see lovely creme colors with the exception of a single shimmer. Lets get this review started =]!
"Deep cerise pink cream"
This uber opaque deep pink creme is a beauty! It has 1 coater potential and I know many of you guys LOVE that. My camera was being annoying and made it look more of a fuchsia/purple shade, but in person it has a true pink tone. At first glance I thought it would be similar to Zoya Kieko, but its not a dupe; it is significantly more pink. Love this =]!
"Vivid cerise pink cream"
Again, my camera didn't perfectly photograph this one. In person, this is a vibrant almost-but-not-quite hot pink shade. I seriously loved how it looked on my skin tone! I can totally see myself wearing this to the pool this summer, haha =] It had a fabulous opaque formula (as most Zoya's do), no complaints about this polish from this girl!
"Soft pinky pink cream"
I looooove a pretty light pink =]! This completely girly candy pink practically screams adorable...the pictures are -almost- right on but I think it appears slightly warmer in person. Of the three pinks in this collection, this is my favorite! It was a little less opaque than the other pinks, but 3 thin coats worked out just fine for me! I can't wait to try some layering combos with this beauty =]!
"Soft coral orange cream"
Welp, you guys know my thoughts on orange...I just don't think it suits me for some reason! However, there are few things I really like about this polish; first off, the name...REPRESEEEENT (if you aren't aware, I live in Arizona =P)!!! Also, since I do a lot of nail art, it's really handy to have the basics of each color family. This not too bright, not too dull orange creme will be perfect for me to use in my nail art =]! Those of you who are orange fans would REALLY enjoy this one, though! It has a great formula, decent opacity, and makes for a lovely, summery, citrusy shade!
"Sea grass metallic"
Here it is, the lone shimmer in this group! This yellow-based light green shimmer is really unique, and although I normally love greens, this isn't my absolute favorite. Don't get me wrong, it isn't bad and I'm sure some of you will fall in love with this shade! I normally love shimmers, but I don't like the streaky finish of this one. However, kudos to Zoya for trying something different =]!
"Soft aqua cream"
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE this one! It's bright but not super vibrant, it feels very Victorian and classy to me. I don't care that this was released in a Summer collection...I will wear this ALLLLL year round! Some were concerned if this would be too close of a match the Zoya Bevin, but rest easy knowing that that are in fact different...you need both =P! It appears similar to the often-duped Tiffany blue (Orly Gumball, China Glaze For Audrey, and so on...), but it's dustier than that. Trust me...do not hesitate. Order this ASAP =P!
There you have it! This collection has it's ups and downs for me, but overall, I'm pretty impressed with the formulas and variety. This collection will be released at Zoya.com on April 1st and the will sell for $8.00 each.
