Swatch and Review: Zoya Stunning Collection

Hump day has arrived and I have for you one of the brand new collections from Zoya. I was sent the Stunning Collection from Zoya HQ, which consists of all bright creme polishes, and immediately went to work swatching!

Continue on for the full swatch and review...

First up is Thandie, a dusty tangerine creme. The above is with two coats.

I thought this was a fairly pretty shade, but I had a bit of a formula issue. It was pretty thin and applied streaky, but I managed to even it out, so it can be worked with.

Next up is Darcy, a dandelion yellow creme. The color is pretty, but I had the same formula issue that I had with Thandie. However, this one required three coats to even out and even then, it was a little gloopy.

 Micky is a coral creme that I loved. It was a bit streaky, but evened out well after the second coat even better than Thandie. Totally workable. And the Queen Mum has already stolen it out of my polish drawer, along with the next polish...

 Yana, a rubine red creme, is gorgeous. The formula on this one was great and it was opaque in two coats.

I loved the name of this polish, mainly because I'm a Doctor Who fan and Professor Yana holds some major significance in the Whoniverse. You are not alone, my fellow Whovians. You are not alone.

Okay. I'm done being a nerd now...

Next up is Josie, a grassy green creme. The formula on this was equally as good as Yana and was opaque in two coats. This is such a pretty shade that you can wear in the spring or summer. Loved it!

Last up is my favorite of the collection, Rocky, which is a serene sky blue creme polish. I loved everything about this shade: the name, the formula, the gloss. Opaque in two coats, I think this is the star!

After swatching the six shades, I was inspired to do some nail art. So here are two fun looks, one delicate and one funky.

This is my shabby-chic floral look, a tutorial for which will go up later in the week.

And this is a little funky tie-dye, inspired by Sarah of Chalkboard Nails. This reminds me of all of the times I tie-dyed clothing at summer camp. Although, I never managed to figure out how to make the spiral! Oh, well. Maybe one day!

The Zoya Stunning collection is currently available for $8 on Zoya.com. The full set is $48.

So there you have it: the Zoya Stunning Collection. What are your thoughts?
