Zoya Paradise Sun Collection - Summer 2015

*Press Sample*

Hey y'all!  Today I have the other summer collection out now from Zoya.  These are the ones with the more metallic shimmery/pearl finish.  Some of them almost look like they have tiny tiny tiny tiny(did I say tiny?) flakies in them.  So lets get right to it.

Now while this doesn't exactly scream summer to me, well maybe the white, it's still pretty.  Also, for some of these, the shimmer was hard to pick up, but trust me, it's there.  I even did some lighting/camera adjustments to pick it up and stay as true to color as possible, so in some of these my skin looks even more pale than it naturally is.

Genesis - 3 coats - Can be best described as a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish - The shimmer on this almost looks like tiny blue & pink flecks, to the eye.  However in pictures it just looks like a white diamond shimmer.

Aphrodite - 2 coats(needs 3, still had some VNL) - Can be best described as a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish - This was kinda jelly-ish.  It's the very close sister to Demetria with the poppy red base, but the shimmer(flakie looking particles) are almost orange & pink looking.  You can see that in the area of the bottle corner where the light hits.

Selene - 3 coats - Can be best described as a true teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish - This is kind of a forrest-y mermaid green.  There is a visible purple/blue shift in the bottle that slightly transfers to the nail.

Mae - 3 coats - Can be best described as a warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish - This also has that sheer jelly like base that Aphrodite has.  It's like a bubblegum pink packed with glitter is how I'd describe it.

Oceane - 2 coats - Can be best described as a true turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish - While Selene is a mermaid-y green, this is like a mermaid-y blue.  Like the glittery ocean when the sun hits it.

Isa - 2 coats - Can be best described as a deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish - This is definitely a true blurple(blue/purple) shade.  It's coming off blue in these pictures, but when I look at it with my eyes it's purple.  Then I'll look at it again and it's blue.  Definitely one that will mess with you.  In fact, the day after I swatched this, I saw a new Mustang the same exact color & immediately thought of this polish.



These are now currently available on Zoya.com for $9ea. or $54 for the entire sampler set.
