Hello lovelies,

Today I'll show you the second part of the Zoya collection for Summer - Stunning. If you've missed the review of the first half of the collection. Irresistible, you can read it here.

Stunning collection consists of six creme polishes in mostly basic colours.

Lucy's Stash - Zoya Stunning Collection for Summer 2013

Darcy - warm yellow with very subtle silver shimmer. Wow, I need sunglasses for this one! The colour is super bright and glossy. The application was a bit tricky (I don't know why but yellows usually are). I needed to apply thick coats otherwise the first coat was a bit patchy. Two coats were enough for full coverage.

Thandie - orange creme with very subtle silver shimmer. Pretty but not very original orange shade, might look very nice on toes :) It applied easily and two coats provided full coverage.

Micky - medium pink creme with very subtle silver shimmer. It's a very pretty and girly shade for summer with a hint of coral undertones. The formula was a bit sheerer so I needed to apply thicker coats. Also when I was applying it it was a bit patchy so for this reason I've used the thicker coats as well.

Yana - bright raspberry creme with very subtle silver shimmer.This is so gorgeous shade which my camera just didn't want to picture right! The shade is rich and glossy and it's a great raspberry colour. It applied well and two coats were enough for full coverage.

Rocky - medium blue creme. All I can think of is a clear blue summer sky, such a gorgeous colour. I'm wearing two thicker coats as the polish seemed to be little bit sheerer to me. It applied well and dried glossy.

Josie - pea green creme. Grass or peas, both match perfectly this green creme shade. If you're one of the green-shade lovers, you probably won't want to miss it.Two coats provide full coverage and the formula was nice and easy to apply.

This collection offers classic creme shades with a hint of shimmer. They all have good formulas but can be a bit patchy if you're using thin coats. All shades were opaque in two coats and dried fast. I've applied topcoat over all swatches.

Zoya polishes are available at your usual outlets or at zoya.com

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.
