Zoya Island Fun Collection

*Press Sample*

Today I'm excited to share the Island Fun collection from Zoya with you! This is a set of six vibrant creme polishes that are perfect for Summer! All of these are two coats with no topcoat. The formula of these is good. There is a tendency for polish to come down the stem of the brush as you are polishing, so make sure to wipe it off or keep an eye on it as you are using these.



Zoya Serenity is best described as a summer purple in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula. Reminiscent of beautiful blooming irises, a harbinger of summer. This is a beautiful polish. 



Talia can be best described as a true turquoise in a full coverage, densely pigmented cream formula. Fair warning - this polish is a stainer. I used base coat and I still had staining on my nails. I was able to get it off by just using remover but I will probably double up on the base coat when I use it next. It is a really pretty color with a good formula so I will be using it again even with the staining issue. This leans slightly more green than I was able to show in my pictures. It was a tough one to photograph!


Cecilia can be best described as a classic teal in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula. I have read on other blogs that this one can stain as well. I used base coat and didn't have any staining with this one. Another beautiful color with a good formula. 



Jace can be best described as a modern tropical green in a full coverage formula. A green that is more muted than lime and surprisingly wearable! This is definitely a green that I don't have in my collection. I really like this one!




Nana by Zoya can be best described as a deep summer fuchsia in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula. This might be my favorite out of the whole collection which is surprising to me because I tend to gravitate more towards blue and green.



Demetria can best be described as a vibrant poppy red in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula. This is a really nice red! I feel like this leans slightly orange. I feel like a broken record but this is another excellent color with a good formula.



All in all I am very impressed with the Island Fun collection from Zoya, which you can find here. Every single polish had a good formula and the colors are bright and fun, which is what I would expect from a Summer collection. If you like creme polishes I think these are a must have. They're so easy to work with and look fantastic! I will have the second half of this collection - Paradise Fun - up for you to see soon!

I'd love to hear which is your favorite out of the Island Fun collection. Let me know in the comments below!

  13. I only picked up Serenity from this collection. I keep going back & forth on Talia. I was wondering how close it is to Robyn, Ling and Breezi? Do you have any of these and would you be willing to do a comparison post?:)

    1. I have all of them! (I may be a bit of a polish hoarder.) I would be happy to do a comparison post. :0) I'll try to have it up tomorrow or Monday!

  14. And yes, my name is Amy, and I am a nail polish hoarder too, (as I hang my head in shame)!! Lol, but your addiction works out good for me, I can ask you for comparisons!! I have a feeling it will be different enough to warrant me getting it! Thanks & no hurries in getting to it!:)
