Hello lovelies,

It's time for Zoya Summer collection! This is just first half called Irresistible which offers six shades with shiny foil-like finish.

Lucy's Stash: Zoya Irresistible Collection for Summer 2013 - Review and swatches

Amy - bright orange foil with gold foil flecks. It's a pretty colour that will certainly draw attention to your nails! It reminds me of Summer sunset.. It applied very easily and the formula was nice. I needed two coats for full coverage.

Tinsley - rose pink foil base with lots of gold foil particles. This is a really interesting polish, something I haven't seen in a while. The polish colour kind of changes in different light. Sometimes is more rose coloured and sometimes the gold in it really sparkles. I'm wearing two coats and the formula was easy to apply.

Bobbi - magenta purple base with silver foil particles. This is my favourite shade of the whole collection. It's a nice feminine colour that reminds me of many pretty flowers. I needed two coats for full coverage.

Kerry - bright gold foil-like finish. Very, very nice gold shade which is not leaning towards orange, I like that. It applied just fine and I needed two thicker coats as Kerry is a little bit sheerer than the other shades.

Rikki - pea green base with gold foil particles. I find it to be quite unique shade because the gold particles have slightly coppery colour. I needed just two coats for full coverage.

Hazel - light denim blue foil base with old gold foil flecks. This type of blue isn't my cup of tea but overall it is a nice shade. it applied well and two coats were enough for full opacity.

There are some nice shades in this part of the collection. My top picks are Bobbi and Tinsley. All polishes had very easy-to-apply formula and were opaque in two coats. The drying time was rather average as the foil finish takes a bit longer.

Zoya polishes are available at zoya.com (US) and in UK I know about Amarya.co.uk that carries them as well.

Hello lovelies,

 

I'm very excited to show you today's nails. I've loved them so much I kept constantly looking at them and I've worn them for days! Firstly, let's take a look at the nails before I tell you more :)

 

Lucy's Stash: Gradient nail foil manicure feat. Born Pretty Store nail foils
 

So now you've seen them....aren't they gorgeous? Like colourful beetles on my nails!

I have used Born Pretty Store nail foils #21 and #24. They are gradient and there's quite a lot of them in each jar. BPS sells many different types of nail foils so you don't have to restrict yourself to the gradient ones. If you'll be shopping you can use my 10% discount code LUHH10.

The pictures were taken the next day as the pictures in light box hardly pictured the beauty of them. Because of the delay there are light cracks that appeared overnight. There's no tutorial this time but I plan to do one next time I use gradient nail foils.

 

Just one more thing - don't use regular topcoat on nail foils otherwise they will crinkle. Use water-based topcoat if you can get your hands on one. I'm currently testing one but it is not on sale yet so can't tell you more I'm afraid.
