Zoya Summer 2013 Bubbly Collection Reviews and Swatches

Zoya Summer 2014 Bubbly Collection

So guess what? I'm still sick. Yes, still a fever and headache, etc. It's now been 25 days that I've had a fever. They are now going into the parasitic testing for my trips to Cambodia. If I ever find out what's wrong with me, I'll make sure to let everyone know. On a brighter note, I have the Bubbly Collection for Zoya to show! These all contain gold microglitter and shimmer with larger multicolored hexagonal iridescent glitter. When the press release mentioned that these can be layered, I was worried that they were going to be really sheer. While they are a bit sheer needing 3 coats, they aren't bad. I only used 2 coats on Alma, but these were really thick coats so I would say it was equivalent to 3 coats. The reason for the sheerness is the jelly finish. If you have really short nails, you may get away with 2 coats, especially with Muse and Stassi. What is up with the names for these polishes? They used to be semi-normal, but they've gotten a bit out of hand! Anyway, these are really interesting polishes with the different glitter.  

*press samples*

Zoya Alma (2 coats)

Alma is the one I thought was going to look the worst on my nails. It's a deep golden color with lots of orange tones. This is my least favorite, but it's still pretty. 

Zoya Harper (3 coats)

Harper is a bright Barbie pink glitter with golden microshimmer. Very fun and girly and would look great on the toes as well. 

Zoya Jesy (3 coats)

Jesy is an orange that can lean coral at times with some pink tones. This also contains the usual golden microshimmer.

Zoya Muse (3 coats)

 Muse may be my favorite of the collection and is a deep blue that has a lot of depth with the help of the golden shimmer. It's very striking on the nail. 

Zoya Stassi (3 coats)

Stassi (really, who spells a name like this?) is a grassy green with the golden shimmer. This is also a crowd pleaser. 

Zoya Binx (3 coats)

And then there was Binx. I expected Binx to be more purple like the bottle color, but on the nail it's more of a pink made deeper with a little purple. I like this one, but I thought I was going to like it more. 

Overall, this is a fun collection with the added glitter and microshimmer. It's very different than what everyone else has put out so far for summer so good for Zoya. My picks would be Muse, Stassi and Jesy for fun (I really like Harper, too).

You can purchase Zoya on their website for $9 each or at select salons or Ulta stores. Stay up-to-date with all things Zoya (often including giveaways and sales!) on Twitter or Facebook.
