The Zoya Summer 2013 Irresistible Collection

AHH FINALLY! I can review the Zoya Irresistible Collection for you! Crazy mix up with my old apartment lying, FedEx and Zoya. Lets just say they're lucky I don't review apartment complexes... ;] ANYHOW, I can FINALLY show you these gorgeous, foily, metallic babies I was sent to review!

Every time Zoya comes out with a collection, I am more and more impressed. I've loved everything they've come out with since I began reviewing in Summer of last year. These are totally gorgeous. If you liked the Surf Collection from last summer, you'll love these!


Let's get started! Just a heads up, none of these swatches are with top coat.

Zoya Kerry

I freakin' love this color! It reminds me of those foil chocolate Easter egg candies. While Kerry is a gold foil, it leans a lot more toward the yellow side of golds, which is exactly how Zoya describes it: "Kerry can be best described as a yellow gold foil metallic". I did 2 coats, and everything was good to go! No issues and a great dry time. I see accented nail art galore for this baby's future!

Zoya Amy

This one jumped to the top of my favorites for this collection VERY fast. This color is absolutely gorgeous! Described as a "red orange foil metallic", Amy is a bright, fiery, glowing polish. This was again, 2 coats no issues with application or dry time!


Zoya Tinsley

Zoya Tinsley is a "rose gold foil metallic". In comparison to other rose gold polishes I own, this one is a lot more rose-y, which I like! I find this to be a toned down, less bright, pink version of Amy. :] Amy is still my favorite bahah! This was also 2 coats, no issues with application and a good dry time.

Zoya Rikki

I was looking for an object to compare Rikki to, and then Zoya's description nailed it: "fern green foil metallic". This is such a gorgeous green foil! I don't know why but I have the strangest urge to mattify Rikki haha This was 2 coats, no issues with application and a good dry time.

Zoya Hazel

This polish is very similar to Zoya Crystal. I couldn't quite nail it on the head but then I realized, upon further investigation (staring at my nail for a bit) there are both blue and green tones in this polish! Made me feel smart when Zoya's description confirmed what I was seeing, "Zoya Nail Polish in Hazel can be best described as a blue green foil metallic". I did 2 coats of Hazel, and again this had a good dry time and application.


Zoya Bobbi

Zoya Bobbie is a "hot magenta pink foil metallic". Hot pinks are pretty much the only pinks I kinda like haha, I'm not a pink person - sue me. And this is a nice change up from the neon hot pink or creme hot pink that I usually will wear from time to time. I actually enjoyed this one more than planned - shhhhhh! Haha This was 2 coats, no issues and good dry time!

I decided to paint them all on my nails at once, because it's pretty much a given that I needed to :P

Whipped out my striping tape and filled in the sections :] Haha someone said it reminded them of a beach ball on my Instagram, I totally agree.

If you love foil metallics, this collection is right up your ally! I loved all these, and Zoya made it hard for me to choose just 3 as my favorite. SO if you asked me what my top 3 from The Irresistible Collection are: Amy, Hazel and Kerry. To me I found these to be the most unique shades. The applications were great, and they dried decently quick. The only complaint I have is the clean up, these are a pain in the buns to clean up, just like any foily polish like these. But that's a minor detail given if you wash your hands you'll be fine ;]
