|Zoya Summer 2016 Sunsets Collection |
(L->R) Dixie, Brynn, Cam, Ness, Dory, & Liv
You know what the best part of summer is? Zoya Summer cremes! Today I have swatches of the Zoya Sunsets Collection for 2016. This collection is made up of 6 awesome bright creme nail colors. This is one of my favorite Zoya annual collections and I can't wait to share these with you! More after the jump :]
Zoya Dixie is a "juicy watermelon red" creme polish. This is very much watermelon, a red toned pink. If you're someone who enjoys bright summer colors but is too afraid to dive into the neons or blues, this is a the perfect color! I did 2 coats of Dixie. The application was a dream, smooth and opaque. Dry time was great. My only complaint is that cleanup is a bit... I cleaned up the best I could but it continued to bleed as the acetone touched it. Mess. Pro Tip - clean up the best you can and then wash with soap and water, which is how I got this clean swatch pic LOL
Brynn is a "popsicle pink" creme. I have no idea what popsicle means in terms of a description word haha and if you google that it comes up with tons of shades of pink. *shrugs* Fuchsia is a good color description, so... I'll go with a medium, but not too bright fuchsia. I did 2 coats of Brynn. No issues at all with this polish. Application was a dream. The formula was nicely opaque. Dry time was on point. I don't love this color though *shrugs again*
HELLLLLLOOOO SUMMERTIMEEEE! Zoya Cam is a "deep, fully saturated orange" creme. If you like orange nail polish, buy this one NOW! This is gorgeously juicy and bright. I have quite a few Zoya orange polishes in my collection (not all but a few) and this one kicks all their butts. It's perfection. I did 2 coats of Cam. Again, nicely opaque and a great dry time. These formulas are awesome.
Next up is Ness is a "softened jade green with a hint of blue to make it wearable for all skin tones. Reminiscent of sea glass". I know this is supposed to work for all skin tones but I'm not totally sold on this one on me. It tones down the redness, but not as much as I prefer. It's a nice shade of green, I don't hate it. I do enjoy seeing this green creme polish after all the softer and muted green polishes from spring. I did 2 coats of Ness. Great formula, great application, and great dry time. No complaints on formula.
Dory is a "vibrant cornflower blue" creme polish. What a lovely, bright blue polish. This is definitely a favorite of mine for this collection. The name, nosomush. I won't lie, rolled my eyes hardcore when I turned the bottle over LMAO I'm sure kiddos will go crazy for this color and it's name. I'll just go crazy for the color :P I did 2 coats of Dory. No complaints on this one, it was perfection.
And we are at the end of the rainbow with Zoya Liv. Liv is a "fun-filled purple" and I love it. It's a nice medium purple that is very flattering for my skin tone :P Not sure if I'm off my purple kick that I've been on for the last year or I just really specifically love this one. I did 2 coats of Liv. No issues with application or dry time, 6 out of 6 for awesome formula!
My must haves from this collection are Dory, Dixie, and Cam. And the other 3 LOL! I really love these creme polishes, y'all. They are BRIGHT, fun, and have awesome, flawless formulas. I suggest you buy all of these, or at least your favorites because they do not disappoint.
I need to swatch up the sister collection to the Sunsets and I'll have them up shortly! They also came out with 2 new lipsticks for the summer, and I'll have those up soon too :]
