Zoya Summer 2013 Stunning Collection

 Hellllllooooo there polished people. Today I have the Zoya Summer 2013 Stunning Collection to share with you. Before Zoya sent me these to review, I KNEW I HAD to have them. Anyone else a sucker for awesome cremes? Raise your hand! This is your post. If you love color, this is also your post. :] Swatch, review, a widdle bit o' nail art after the jump!


 A quick view of the colors closer up:


Zoya Summer 2013 Stunning Collection

Perfect colors for a summer collection! The yellow, orange, pink, and hot pink all seem to have a shimmer to them (I noticed it in the bottle). It doesn't come across much on the nail, but if you really are concerned with that... I'd get out that magnifying glass bahahaha. I'm excited for these, hope you are too!

Zoya Darcy

Zoya Darcy is a bright, sunny, buttery, yellow creme. If you're a sucker for a good yellow creme (I know they're hard to come by!), you'll love this polish. It was perfect (with no balding!) in 2 coats. The formula was awesome and so was the dry time. No complaints here!

I'm already in love with Zoya Pippa, which is another yellow creme, but this one is a bit brighter. Pippa may have competition for being my favorite yellow polish now! I don't have comparisons in today's post, but I do plan to do a comparison post in the future. I didn't want it to be super long.

Zoya Thandie

"A citrus orange" is how Zoya describes the color Thandie. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think it leans a little more toward the coral side of orange polishes. (I am crazy) Nonetheless, this is a brilliant color. It's bright, fun, and PERFECT for summer. Thandie was good to go in 2 coats. No complaints - formula was spot on and dried quickly.

This is just a warning: if you're a pink polish lover - you need these amazing pinks. I'm not a pink polish lover, or pink lover in general, in any way, shape or form. BUTTTTT these pinks are freakin' amazing. Usually I find pinks to be like reds. You know? "Meh, seen 'em all!" But something about these next 2 pinks... they're just awesome.

Micky is described as an "amazing coral creme". I don't find it to be super coral, in fact it reminded me more of a brand new, bright, pink eraser haha. I tried to find other words to describe it, but that's all that comes to mind when I looked at my nails! Micky was perfect in 2 coats, no issues, great formula.

Zoya Yana

Oh, Yana! How I want to hate you because you're pink, but I can't because you're so freakin' awesome and pretty. DARNIT! Anyways... Zoya describes Yana as a "geranium pink". This polish is a bright, hot, vibrant, pink. I usually gravitate toward the hot pink polishes, therefore I have a lot of hot pinks. This doesn't match any of the bright, hot pink polishes I own. This ones a stunner fersure. This was again 2 coats. No issues, great dry time and great formula. All around a great polish.

Zoya Rocky

I don't feel this shade is entirely unique, but this color is super pretty though and I do enjoy it! Zoya describes Rock as a "serene blue cream". I did 2 coats and Rocky had a great formula and dry time like the others. This one is also aching for a comparison post haha

Zoya Josie

Josie is a "grassy green cream", and she is exactly that. LALALALOVE this color! I don't think Josie pops as much as other polishes in this collection, but it's an awesome green polish. I did 2 coats of Josie for total coverage. No issues again, great formula and great dry time!

AND, because all these polishes were screaming at me "STRIPE NAIL ART", that's exactly what I did. I mean, why would I ignore requests made by nail polish? Pft.

WEEE! How fun is that? It reminds me of a bright beach ball or one of those beach umbrellas! These colors are totally fun together.

Then I took it a step further, I stamped a little:

Zoya Summer 2013 Stunning Collection

I hope you all enjoyed this collection as much as I did! If I HAD to choose 3 must have colors from this collection, I'd go with: Darcy, Yana and Josie. But, if you're a creme polish lover... I totally recommend this entire collection, it's awesome.

I won't have the 2nd part of the summer collection for a few more days, crazy mailing address mix up and lying old apartments involved :[ BUT, I will have it eventually!
