Zoya Island Fun Summer 2015 Swatches & Review


Hi guys! The weather is warming up, clothes are getting lighter and the days are getting longer. That can only mean one thing, Summer is almost here! So you know what that means, fun summer colors and Zoya doesn't disappoint with two new awesome summer collections. Today I have a collection of 6 highly pigmented, rich cremes to show you. I think that these are probably the absolute best formulas of all the cremes that Zoya has put out. They are all very opaque and a couple were one coaters. They are a bit on the thicker side, but I'll admit I like thicker formulas. Now don't get me wrong, they aren't so thick that you can't work with them, if you prefer a thinner formula a couple drops of thinner will work that out for you. These applied so smooth and easy, no dragging, pulling or flooding the cuticles or sides. 



 Cecilia - Classic teal in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
Shown here as 1 coat topped with Seche Vite.

I had a difficult time getting this shade to photograph correctly, it leans slightly more green than it's showing. Either way it's beautiful, so much more than I had expected it to be just by looking at the bottle. I'm so in love with this beautiful teal! 




Demetria - A vibrant poppy red in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
Shown here as 2 coats topped with Seche Vite.

This is another one that surprised me. I wasn't sure I'd like it as much as I do because, well it's an orange red. Big whoop! No. It's so much prettier than that. The glassy, smooth finish and the color is perfect. Not quite red but not orange. I love this one too!



Jace - Modern tropical green in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
Shown here as 2 coats, topped with Seche Vite.

So I love ugly greens. Not that they are really "ugly" but when you think of pretty greens the first thing people come up with is usually more like an emerald. I like the more olive or mossy greens. This baby really made me happy! Look how perfect it is. Yum! 



Nana - Deep summer fuchsia in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
Shown here as 2 coats, topped with Seche Vite.

While this isn't the most unique shade, it is quite pretty and it's a perfect shade for summer.




Serenity - Summer purple in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
Shown here as 2 coats, topped with Seche Vite.

Holy wow! This is a gorgeous shade of purple! Believe it or not I don't have very many purple cremes in my stash, so this one is unique to me. 



Talia - True turquoise in full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
Shown here as 1 coat topped, with Seche Vite.

Here's another I couldn't get to photograph correctly. It's a bit darker and more teal looking in person. No, it's not too close to Cecilia, it's definitely much darker. I'm crazy in love with this one as well. I didn't want to take it off. 



My Top Picks
I honestly can say I can't just pick three from this collection like I normally do. It's just too hard. I LOVE this entire set!
