Zoya Sunshine Collection

Hello everyone! Today I have for you one of my favorite collections of the summer - Zoya's Sunshine Collection.
This is a collection of six fabulous sparkle polishes all with similar hint of gold shimmer. Very pretty!!

Kimmy- A shimmering candy apple red with a touch of gold sparkle.

Faye - A bronzed purple with gold sparkle. Love Faye! This polish is very unique to my collection.

Tanzy- A juicy tangerine orange with glowing gold sparkle. This polish is perfect for summer -definitely a must have!

Apple- A glowing apple green with gold sparkle. This polish has been compared to Zoya Midori, but the two are very different. Apple has much more shimmer and is a brighter green. Yummy name and color!

Rica- A coral pink with gold sparkle. This is such a bright cherry polish. I just love it! One of my top favorites from the collection.

Reva- A raspberry red with gold sparkle.

All in all this is a wonderful collection. The colors are gorgeous and unique. They literally glow on your fingers which makes the Sunshine Collection perfect for summer.

Whats your favorite polish from this collection?

Zoya Summertime Collection

Today I have for you swatches of the fabulous Summertime collection from Zoya. This collection consists of 6 gorgeous cremes that all applied flawlessly.

Kieko - A light berry purple. This is a great summer purple!

Mira - A medium purple with blue undertones. Really pretty color and reminds me a lot of China Glaze's Grape Pop.

Breezi - A dusty medium blue. This photographed much brighter than it looks in real life. Still a great color!

Areej - A soft fuchsia pink. Love this color! Such a pretty summer pink.

Sooki - A bright blood red. I love this one because of the name. I am a huge True Blood fan and just love it! This is a perfect red.

I passed on Tamsen because it looked very similar to Sooki and the color didn't really do anything for me.

All in all this is a great collection. I wouldn't have really thought of these colors to be summer colors, but they actually work. Formula was great as is with most Zoya polishes. Definitely recommend this to everyone! What's your favorite color from this collection??

Orly Royal Velvet

Hello everyone!!
Today I have for you Royal Velvet from Orly's Spring '11 Precious collection.

Royal Velvet is a gorgeous deep purple base with an amazing blue duochrome. It applied wonderfully and this is 2 coats. At first I wasn't excited about this polish, but after seeing some swatches I really wanted to try it. It did not disappoint! It just glows on the nails! Definitely a unique polish in my collection.
