Zoya Sunset summer 2016 collection swatches review BeautyJudy

So, how is it already July?! June was a blur – summer 2016 has been busy but good!

We celebrated Memorial Day while in Florida for vacation, and then it was time to prep for my daughters first birthday party. I can’t believe she is 1 – she’s so close to walking.

Anyway – right before I left for vacation, the pretty Zoya Sunsets and Seashells Collections arrived at BeautyJudy headquarters! I put them aside for when I returned, and decided to wear the Sunset polishes vs. straight-up swatch them. I’ve been wearing a lot of wraps and glitter lately, so I craved the change.

About three weeks ago, I applied a wrap on my accent finger (Jamberry Sunday Brunch), applied gel overlay, and anywhere from one to two days in between, I changed the rest of my Zoya mani to a different Sunset polish! I loved changing these highly-pigmented, bright hues. Read on for pics, descriptions and a….



Zoya Dory Sunset summer 2016 collection swatches review BeautyJudy

Dory is described by Zoya as a “vibrant cornflower blue with a densely saturated, buttery smooth application. Get ready to rock the waves!” I wore this with two coats. Dory reminds me of the plastic kiddie pool that now resides in my backyard. My favorite of the bunch!


Zoya Cam Sunset summer 2016 collection swatches review BeautyJudy

Cam is described by Zoya as a “deep, fully saturated orange with a densely saturated, buttery smooth application. Rich and juicy like a ripe tangerine!” I wore Cam in two coats. Cam reminds me of the orange in a beach ball.


Zoya Brynn Sunset summer 2016 collection swatches review BeautyJudy

Brynn is described by Zoya as a “Popsicle pink with a densely saturated, buttery smooth application. The epitome of happy carefree color!” Again, two coats here. Brynn is a sweet pink, but probably my least favorite of the six; it’s rare for me to go ga-ga over the pinks in any collection.


Zoya Dixie Sunset summer 2016 collection swatches review BeautyJudy

Dixie is described by Zoya as a “Juicy watermelon red with a densely saturated, buttery smooth application. A cool treat for hot summer days!” I wore Dixie in two coats, and I didn’t want to take her off! this sweet red really kicked up my corporate outfits when I wore it to work!


Zoya Ness Sunset summer 2016 collection swatches review BeautyJudy

Ness is described by Zoya as a “Softened jade green with a hint of blue to make it wearable for all skin tones. Reminiscent of sea glass found on your favorite beaches!” Again, two coats here with Ness! Short for Lochness Monster? I hope so, it’s kind of cartoon-dragon green!


Zoya Liv Sunset summer 2016 collection swatches review BeautyJudy

Liv is described by Zoya as a “Fun-filled purple that is seriously saturated and makes a statement! Great on any skin tone, with or without a tan.” Liv was my first pick of the six to wear, two coats. Perfect for the office, but bright enough to stand out when you’ve got your toes or your fingers in the sand of the beach.

I have no complains on formula. I had no chipping, although admittedly wore the polishes for a day, two or three days at a time. I always fine Zoya a pleasant brush, handle, stem and flow to work with.

You can find the collection for sale here on the Zoya site, at $10 per polish or $54 for the full set! You can also purchase a four-pack of the cremes…but why not try to win them?

Zoya shared a four-pack of the cremes with me, and I’m hosting a giveaway!
