Zoya Island Fun Summer 2015 Swatches and Review


Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since I've updated my blog - I've been quite active on Instagram and YouTube though, so you can always check those out when I am not active on here. Anyway, today I've got swatches of the latest collection from Zoya to share with you! They've released two collections for summer - the Paradise Sun Collection, which consists of six gorgeous shimmers, and the Island Fun Collection, which consists of six bold cremes. Today I'll be showing you the cremes!

As I mentioned, these polishes are pretty bold! At first I thought they were a bit dark for a summer collection, but I think the rich colors are pretty appropriate (and definitely colors you would see on a tropical island!) The formulas are generally pretty easy to use, as is usual for this brand, although some were a bit thicker than I was used to. Anyway, let's get into it!

Jace is a perfect tropical green creme. This color looks like the inside of a kiwi to me (Kiwi nail art, anyone?!) so I was immediately hooked. It's a great color for any season! Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Cecelia is a gorgeous classic teal creme. This is another one of those colors that's perfect for any time of year (as is most of the collection), but I do love wearing these green-blue shades during the summer! Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Talia is described as a turquoise creme, but to me, this one looks pretty blue! It's definitely a classic color to add to your collection, and the formula was wonderful. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Serenity is possibly my favorite of the collection - a rich summery purple creme. I absolutely love cool toned purple shades like this, and I think they are perfect to wear during warmer weather! I can also see myself using this one for nail art. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Nana is described as a deep summer fuchsia creme. Nothing too original here, but this color is a classic! I do think it applied slightly darker than it looked in the bottle, but it's beautiful nonetheless. Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Finally, we have Demetria, which is described as a bright poppy red creme - a perfect description, as I immediately thought of those poppy flowers when I saw this shade! I do love the orange undertone of this shade, because it really brightens up the color! Shown above is two coats with top coat.

Overall, I am really liking these shades - but I especially enjoyed the cool toned cremes Cecelia, Talia, and Serenity. All shades are available from the Zoya website for $9 USD each.
