Zoya Island Fun Swatches

Thank goodness it’s the weekend! Does anyone else feel like I do today? I got a lot of stuff done at work today and I’m looking forward to just relaxing while squeezing in a few household chores in between. In random order for today’s post, here are swatches for the Zoya Island Fun Collection.

First up is Demetria.

Zoya Demetria

Demetria caught my eye immediately being that it’s a red. Red is still my favorite color to date. This is a beautiful crème shade that’s pretty opaque but still needed more than one coat. It is described as “a vibrant poppy red in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. It applied very nicely for me. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next up is Jace.

Zoya Jace

Jace is a nice light green crème shade. This is described as “a modern tropical green in a full coverage formula” and “a green that is more muted than lime and surprisingly wearable”. Formula is good and creamy. It evened out really nicely with the second coat. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

Then we have Talia.

Zoya Talia

Talia is a bright blue crème that brings me back to my vacation back in April. This is surprisingly my favorite from this collection. It is described as ” a true turquoise in a full coverage, densely pigmented cream formula”. The website also makes a note that this is a stainer and I can attest to that (although I didn’t read that first and wish I had!). Formula is buttery and applied beautifully. Shown is one generous coat with no top coat.

Next up is Nana.

Zoya Nana

Nana is a beautiful fuchsia crème. It is described as “a deep summer fuchsia in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. Formula is comparable to the other shades in this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Up next is Cecilia.

Zoya Cecilia

Cecilia is one that I’m pretty sure will be popular because it’s a teal. It is described as “a classic teal in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. This one also has a warning for being a stainer according to the website and I experienced that with this as well. Formula is super creamy that it applied like butter. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Last up is Serenity.

Zoya Serenity

Serenity is a purple crème shade. It is described as “a summer purple in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula” and “reminiscent of beautiful blooming irises, a harbinger of summer”. This shade is pretty opaque with a nice formula but I still should’ve used at least 2 coats. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

These shades would work well for the summer and look great on toes especially while you’re in your swimwear!
