Zoya Seashells Swatches

Hey Guys! Today’s post is a longer one as it’s on an entire nail polish collection released for the summer. We’re still in summer so get these shades on! And if you know me by now, you will know that I’ll tell you to wear what you want no matter what time of the year. Here are swatches for the Zoya Seashells Collection.

First up is Levi.

Zoya Levi

Levi is a beautiful pale or light gold shade. It is described as “a beige gold, textured PixieDust with medium holographic hex glitter”. This is my favorite shade in this collection. Formula is good as with the rest of this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Just to show how shiny and jelly-ish squishy it looks like with top coat on, here’s Levi with one coat of top coat over it.

Next is Zooey.

Zoya Zooey

Zooey is a pretty pink shade. This is described as “a classic pink, textured PixieDust laced with a fine thread of gold and medium-sized holographic hexes for an added layer of dimension”. Formula is very nice and the golden flash gives its stunning duochrome property. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.

Then we have Tilly.

Zoya Tilly

Tilly is the one I thought would be my favorite but it got beaten by Levi. It’s a stunning silver shade that is described as “a starry grey, textured PixieDust with a small holographic glitter interwoven with a darker gunmetal” and “perfect for hot nights out on the town!”. It makes me think of other super glittery shades like Color Club Magic Attraction except that’s purple. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next we have Bay.

Zoya Bay

Bay is a an odd one. I like it in the bottle then didn’t really feel it when I applied it on my nails and I liked it even less in pictures. Thank goodness though it looks better in person than in pictures. The shade itself made me think or Frozen’s Elsa. It is described as “a sky blue, textured PixieDust with fine silver and gold glitter creating a dreamy effect”. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.

Here comes Linds.

Zoya Linds

Linds is a red that — I’ll be honest — pictures horribly. I hated how it looks in the pictures under direct sunlight but it looks much better in person. In the picture, it makes me think of bright red candy and blood ala what you see in cartoons. It is described as “a red PixieDust with red and fuchsia glitter to mimic the look of maraschino cherries dipped in sugar!”. It doesn’t look as red as in the bottle really. This is actually one of my favorites in this collection (it just pictures horribly in my experience). Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Last up is Cece.

Zoya Cece

Cece is a meadow green shade that makes me think of cartoon frogs like Kerokerokeroppi from Sanrio. It is described as ” a full impact green, textured PixieDust with a thin vein of gold creating a fizzy lemon-lime effect”. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

There are some shades here that I don’t recall them having, so I find this to be a balanced collection. I do wish there was something more that pops with these shades but it could’ve been worse so I’m satisfied with these!
