Zoya Beach

L-R: Arizona, Wednesday, Tracie, Reagan, Lara, Shelby

Arizona: Beautiful orange creme, has more of a yellow base but still looks awesome on me which is great. Usually more yellow/red based polishes look a bit off against my skin. It's opaque in two coats and is a very subtle orange. Arizona is a fun way to wear the upcoming orange/tangerine trend without being overly bright. In the bottle shots, Arizona appears to be light but she is much more saturated in person. The photo here is true to color, however.

Lara: A deep pink creme (and pretty name!). It's opaque in two coats. I don't have much to say about this color. It's really pretty and very flattering. Easy formula, just like everything else. It screams "put me in a floral dress and let's go run in a sunflower field!"

Wednesday: This is ever so slightly lighter in person. I almost thought it looked like OPI mermaid tears but I think MT has more of a green tint to it. This has more aqua. It would look very fun with Zuza!

Tracie: I'm not sure why they threw this shimmery green in there. Diversity? A curve ball? Not sure.It's really pretty but I think it would be more striking as just a creme, not this frosty shade. The green is gorgeous but the shimmer to it takes away from the green. That's great if you want a subtle way to wear green, but I'm not subtle :) Tracie is a very fun, more spring like light-apple green. I'm not a fan of frosty shades, but this one doesn't look half bad. I can't say that I'll be wearing it, though. It's opaque in two coats.

Shelby: Another very anticipated shade. I've been on the hunt for the PERFECT bubblegum creme for the longest time. All the ones I've tried have been super streaky or goopy - no bueno Shelby is opaque in two coats and the perfect consistency. Not thick, not thin, just easy and beautiful on the nail. I am incredibly stoked this baby made her way to me. I'll need a few bottles of her because I can't imagine anyone else doing a better bubblegum pink.


Reagan: A deep fuschia creme. Almost a one coat creme, but there's still a slight visible nail line. This photo is two coats. Reagan is a very fun and pop-like, great for summer! The photo here is not taken in my little homemade lightbox and I did use flash (washed out fingers, booooohisss). The inconsistency bugs me, but not enough to put that thing back together for one photo. :) The photo is showing a bit more purple than it should be.


This are all beautiful, effortless cremes and each one of them are very appropriate for summer time. I love them all so much it's hard to pick a favorite - even more difficult is picking which one I want to wear.

I adore this collection! I'm on a nail polish buying ban at the moment but as soon as it's over I'm getting Arizona, Wednesday and Tracie!

Oh bummer on the buy ban. These cremes are so gorgeous!
