Zoya EasyNeon Swatches

Hey guys! As the weather now cools since Fall will arrive soon, I’m revisiting sure summer colors that is still popular and in style where I am for another month or two. Notoriously finicky to photograph, I did my best with this collection. In random order, here are swatches for the Zoya EasyNeon Collection.

Zoya EasyNeon Collection

First up is Oakley.

Zoya Oakley

Oakley is a bright neon orange. It is described as “a fiery bright orange neon”. Formula for this one is on the thin side. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Next is Echo.

Zoya Echo

Echo is a nice bright neon blue. It is described as “a deep lagoon blue neon”. Formula for this shade is nice. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Then we have Janie.

Zoya Janie

This is my favorite shade in this entire collection. Remember I mentioned earlier that neons are hard to capture correctly? Well, no matter what I try the shade I see in the picture doesn’t quite match when I swatched it on my nail. As with all neon shades, the direct sunlight shot is the most accurate depiction of the shade. It is actually a hot Barbie pink neon to me. It is described as “a hot fuchsia pink neon”. It’s definitely darker than in the pictures. Formula is one of the nicer ones in this collection. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Next in line is Link.

Zoya Link

Link was my least favorite shade — only because I have always disliked neon green. It is described as “an electric, kelly green neon”. With that said, it is a beautiful neon green….much better looking than what I see from other brands. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Up next is Zelda.

Zoya Zelda

With a catchy and well-known name, Zelda is a lighter neon pink than Janie…like a salmon pink neon maybe. It is described as “a beaming pink-coral neon”. Formula for this is thin but not as thin as Oakley or Link. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Last up is Banks.

Zoya Banks

Banks is a nice dark violet neon. It is described as “a vivid violet neon”. I personally found this one to have the nicest formula in the collection. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

The entire collection comes equipped with the Z-Wide Brush. I am definitely digging these neon shades although I was quite disappointed there wasn’t a yellow one?! Also, these aren’t as bright in terms of being neon shades compared to those of other brands. Either way, great summer shades for sure. There is a disclaimer on Zoya’s website for the shades in this collection: “Due to the unique matte formulation, color is typically not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. Please note: Neon pigments may vary slightly from batch to batch.”
