Zoya Beach Collection Swatches

I finally get to finish my swatches on the Zoya Beach & Surf Collection.  I know it's awfully late but I made a promise to myself and I need to fulfill it!  Let's get on with the swatches, first up is the Beach collection. 

Shelby - Lara - Reagan - Arizona - Tracie - Wednesday

Arizona is a creamy tangerine, with a rather strong yellow undertone. 




Shelby a light pastel pink, nothing out of the ordinary. It doesn't impress me at all!




Lara a medium fuchsia creme. I can easily fall in love with this one.




Reagan is a dark fuchsia creme.  It appears quite 'purple' in my pictures but in real life, it's lighter in shade, but I did find it dried a tad darker. Thing is I probably won't pick this up to wear in the summer...




Tracie a light green grass shade with a frosted finish.  Unfortunately it doesn't go well with my skintone! I think it'll look fab with a darker/tanned skintone.




Wednesday a muted turquoise creme with more green tone in it.  My favourite of the bunch. 




I seldom bought a whole polish collection, Zoya Beach & Surf were my first.  I think that's because I fell in love with this brand after I tried Skylar, which is so pigmented and smooth to apply.  However, most the creme shades from the Beach Collection weren't that pigmented as I hoped they would be.  For the swatches, I have two thick coats on.  To get the most vivid colors, I think three thin coats is the way to go!

    1. Yes, I am a huge fan of orange this season too. I happened to be wearing OPI A Roll in the Haque today!! It's a true orange!
      And no, I didn't switch my top coat. I guess you must be thinking the finish of polishes has changed, that's because I am now taking photos with diffused light to avoid hot spots.

  8. I love this collection, thought I wasn't too sold on some of them until I saw your swatches! Definitely have to get my hands on Arizona (or Arizona on my hands? haha) and I'm not normally even a fan of oranges! Thanks for the beautiful swatches, as always :)
