Zoya Paradise Sun Collection Summer 2015




Hi everybody. I hope that you’re taking some time to think about all of the men and women who have bravely served this country. It doesn’t matter what your politics are, our men and women in the military deserve our respect and gratitude and today is a day to remember their sacrifices. I’m spending my day at home babysitting the Peanut Brat and we’ve just had a grand old time. Currently he’s taking a nap so I’m taking advantage of the free time to write up this post. Today I’m posting the second half of Zoya’s Summer Collection. I’ve already posted the Island Fun Collection which is the creme half of the Summer collection. The Zoya Paradise Sun Collection is about metallic shimmer which isn’t really my favorite finish, but Zoya always manages to really pull off this finish. On to the swatches!

These polishes are SUPER shimmery which made them a nightmare to swatch. I had shimmer all over my fingers and had to use a scrub in between each polish. These are all really nice polishes if you like metallic shimmer, but Genesis was a horrible pain in the ass. It took like 4-5 coats to even it out and I would curse it to hell if it wasn’t so pretty. I love white polish so much and this one is so gorgeous and shimmery. My least favorite polish here is Aphrodite because it’s a jelly that still shows VNL despite 4 coats. I am satisfied with these, but I’m not as enthusiastic because this is not my favorite finish. So what do you think about this half of the collection? Do you prefer the cremes or the metallics? Let me know! Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

  1. Oceane and Isa are on my wishlist. Selene might be a bit close to a few others I have (Charla, Giovanna, Color Club Metamorphosis?). For Mae (and Nana) it’s just the question of having plenty of pink anyway; and with Genesis -it is lovely on you- I wonder if getting China Glaze Dandy Lyin Around would be a better option.
    In Island Fun Serenity – purple and Talia – blue would be nice to have. I might have something similar to Cecelia. Demetria looks nice because of how bright it is; some suggest it’s a one-coater. I never really believe that as I find I tend to need three coats for many polishes, including Zoyas, even when the claim is they’re two-coaters. If I could rationalize both sets, I’d enjoy all of them, but that’s the polish, umm.. enthusiast talking. 🙂

  2. I haven’t seen anything positive about Genesis. I was in a meeting once with this awful lady and she kept using that word (“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”), so it satisfies me that it’s bad, lol.
    Isa is my favorite, but I like Selene and Oceane, too.
