Zoya Sunshine and Summertime

Tons of exciting summer news from Zoya. First, the brand has released two complementary six-piece summer collections: Sunshine (microglitters!) and Summertime (cremes!). Then, there’s a limited edition three-piece “mod mattes” (zingy-bright) summer collection. And finally, Zoya is running a fabulous promotion on the fifteen new shades.

Let’s get down to brass tacks. Microglitter is one of my favorite nail polish finishes, and no one does it like Zoya. Not everyone uses the same terminology; when I say “microglitters,” I mean nail polish packed with very dense, very tiny glitter particles, so it’s a textured, glittery metallic that feels smooth under topcoat.

The Sunshine collection reminds me of Indian wedding saris: rich, opulent color packed with gold thread (well, gold sparkle). Reva is berry-wine-colored with gold sparkle. Kimmy is warm red with gold sparkle. Apple is sour apple green with green sparkles. Tanzy is copper-peach with gold sparkles. Rica is pink with gold sparkles. Faye is lilac with gold sparkles.

I’ll be nail swatching these as quickly as I can, because they are even more beautiful to the eye than an on-tape photo was able to capture.

The Summertime collection features six bold, bright, saturated cremes.

It’s hard to see with so many incredibly saturated colors in close proximity to one another, but Sooki and Tamsen are not actually that similar. Sooki is bright blood red; Tamsen is tomato red. Areej is orchid purple. Kieko is Crayola-purple. Mira is blue purple, and I feel like I’ve been looking for blue-purple for soooo long. Breezi is bright cerulean. It reminds me of Greece, or St. Tropez, or a million other places I’d like to take a vacation.

Zoya nail polishes are $8 apiece, but if you created a Zoya account before Sunday, March 20th (yesterday at 5 pm), then you have a special, limited time opportunity to pick them up for much less. Sign in at Zoya.com, visit “My Account” and you’ll see a single-use, non-transferable code to buy-one-get-one free (up to 7 free polishes).  This code is valid for any of the Sunshine, Summertime, or Mod Matte shades.

Even better: shipping is just $2 — and if you order $55 or more, shipping is free.

Your code is good until March 25th. Happy shopping!

These polishes were provided by Zoya for swatching purposes.
