Zoya Beach & Surf Collection Summer 2012 - Swatches and Review



I have something very exciting for you today. The Zoya Beach & Surf Collection for summer. I LOVE summer collections. They remind me of holidays and are always so positive and full of colour. 

Zoya says: "Summer 2012 is going to be a super stylish season for nails with the latest offering of nail polish collections,Beach and Surf, from the new color of fashion, Zoya! This new splash of color, designed by the Zoya color experts, is kissed by sea and sand translating beautifully onto the nail in the famous, full-coverage Zoya formula.

Dive into the creamy shades of the Zoya Beach Collection or the shimmering sea foils of the Zoya SurfCollection. The choice is yours – this color palette is sure to be a splash!"

So let´s have a look at these. The first part is the Beach Collection followed by Surf. All the swatches are in natural indoor light (no sun, flash or artificial light):

REAGAN

LARA

SHELBY

ARIZONA

TRACIE

WEDNESDAY

CARLY

KIMBER

RORY

MYRTA

MEG

ZUZA

To sum this collection up: I love how these two collections complete each other and it will sure be a lot of fun to play around with these shades. For example I will for sure be wearing something from the Beach on my nails and from the Surf on my toes. Or different combinations on the nails! I must try something soon. The colour choice is also very pretty, I am in love with the turquoise and pinks and purple of course!
I also really liked the formula. It was a bit thicker but not in the bad way. I loved the cremes, they apply like a dream. These all covered in two coats and some may even need just one thicker coat. 
So what do you think of these? Which ones did you get or are on your wishlist?

P.S While speaking about Zoya, I must mention that this weekend is the Earth Day Zoya Nail Polish Exchange! For more information click here.

  9. I regret sooo much that Zoya is nearly unavailable in our country! :-(( I think it'd be my most favourite brand ever. I love their formula, their colours (EVERY colour), the packaging, the brushes, their names... simply everything. And those two collections are amazing, such bright and positive colours... Please, somebody - just became Zoya's official distributor here in CZ!!
