Zoya Wanderlust Summer nail polish collection swatches and review on BeautyJudy

Zoya Wanderlust collection – the brand’s summer offering – is a 12-piece collection of bright, optimistic hues that make for a nice summer nail wardrobe!

Let’s jump right into swatches!

Esty

Zoya Esty nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Esty is described as a muted fuchsia pink creme. When you compare it with Byrdie, Esty has a touch of purple. My swatch is shown with two coats. I found Esty easy to apply and opaque in one coat!

Cora

Cora is described as a muted coral creme. I’m really feeling coral in many version for summer, and this fits in perfectly for me! Cora is swatched in two coats here. She applied easily, like Zoya cremes usually do.

Winnie

Zoya Winnie nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Winnie is described as a soft watermelon pink creme. I find this to be a nice description, although I’ve never found a pink watermelon, I think Sonja, shown later, would be more watermelon-y than Winnie. I don’t gravitate towards pinks as favorites, but this is one of my favs from the collection! Shown here in two coats, easy to apply.

Lois

Zoya Lois nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Lois is described as a magenta violet creme. I love how vibrant this purple is without being a neon. It’s another one of my favorites from this collection. Shown here in two coats, easy to apply.

Arbor

Zoya Arbor nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Arbor is described as an olive green creme. I really love this color for summer because I see so many clothes with either this color or colors that complement it, and it’s got a hint of tropical greenery to it that brightens it for summer vs. fall. Shown here in two coats, easy to apply.

Sonja

Zoya Sonja nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Sonja is described as a summery crimson red creme. When I saw this in the bottle I thought, this looks like a watermelon red! It’s so pretty – quite possibly my absolute favorite of the collection! Shown here in two coats, easy to apply!

River

Zoya River nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

River is described as a shimmering cobalt blue. It’s like having the pool on your hands even when you have to go to work and be responsible, lol! Shown here in two coats. First coat is a little patchy but it all evens out with the second.

Scout

Zoya Scout nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Scout is described as a shimmering moss green. Scout is such an interesting shimmery shade! It’s moss green and it shimmers as golden yellow. It doesn’t look particularly flattering on my fair, reddish skin tone. Shown here in two coats, Scout was easy to apply!

Sawyer

Zoya Sawyer nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Sawyer is described as a a soft taffy orange creme – which is funny because I thought “salt water taffy” when I saw it! This is another one of my favorites from the collection. Shown in two coats – a great one to apply.

Mandy

Zoya Mandy nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Mandy is described as a shimmering berry pink. It’s a pretty, tropical night type of pink to me. Shown in two coats, also patchy on coat one, evened out with two, and wait for the first coat to dry before applying second to avoid pulling and pooling!

Byrdie

Zoya Byrdie nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Byrdie is described as a rich bubble gum pink creme. There’s something to be said for a pop of a vibrant pink on nails in summer, and I am surprised how much I love this one, too. Shown in two coats, another easy-to-apply creme.

Journey

Zoya Journey nail polish Zoya Wanderlust swatches review BeautyJudy

Journey is described as a a shimmering strawberry red. I think I prefer this one to Mandy for the red in it. I would say the same application tips as Mandy and River.

Overall, Wanderlust is a pretty collection of polishes, heavy on the cremes with a couple shimmers to complement. The cremes applied like a dream but the shimmers were a bit patch on initial coat, evened out on second. I found that if I swatched the second coat on too fast, I pulled the polish at the tip or it pooled, so I recommend letting that first coat dry a bit.

As much as I enjoy the red-pink colors in this collection, like Sonja and Journey, it does feel a little red/pink heavy. Scout and Lois are standouts to me.

Three lipsticks also launched with this collection, and I’ll review them for you in another post. There’s Kitty (neutral pink), Kirby (bright watermelon semi-sheer pink and Kay (creamy sheer red).

The collection became available on May 15 on the Zoya website here. The polishes (0.5 fl oz) retail for $10 each and the lipsticks $12.

    Esty and Lois are awesome.

    Wow- that must´ve been a lot of work to put these all on! I wonder: do you do the swatches all in one day or does it take weeks? The colors are fabulous. That Arbor color is really special!

    • BeautyJudy

      Such a good question Sissi!! I did these in one sitting. I paint all but my thumb on my left hand, take pictures, make sure they’re good, take off the polish, then donit all over again with a new polish. I use base coat but rarely top coat. I also use cuticle oil in between every swatch! The colors are definitely fab!
