Zoya Paradise Sun Collection

*Press Sample*

I have the other half of the Summer collection from Zoya to share with you today! This is the Paradise Sun collection and it is full of bright colors filled with shimmer and glass flecks. It is stunning! All of my swatches are without topcoat.



Genesis by Zoya can be best described as "a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish - designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust!" This is my new favorite white polish. It does take three coats to be opaque, but once you get there it is amazing!



Isa by Zoya can be best described as "a deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers." This is gorgeous. I love the shimmer in this one. To be honest, each one I swatched I thought I liked more than the one before. This is two coats and it is a bit more purple in person than it is in these pictures. If you are a purple lover, you need this polish.



Oceane by Zoya can be best described as "a true turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters." This one can stain. I used two coats of base coat and didn't have any staining, so that's what I would recommend. This is two coats.



Selene by Zoya can best be described as "a true teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish. A unique shade with an aqua fleck that resembles deeper layers of ocean water." This is the worst stainer of the bunch. Again, I used two coats of basecoat and I didn't have an issue. Even with the staining, I love this color. It is so pretty! This is two coats, but it is almost a one coater. If you apply it thick enough, you could probably get away with just one.



Mae by Zoya can best be described as "a warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers." Another amazing color! So gorgeous for Summer! This one and the last one have the largest flakies in them. This is two coats.



Aphrodite by Zoya can be best described as "a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life. Think of fresh and juicy tropical fruit!" This is another favorite of mine. The shimmer and flakies are amazing in this one. This one has more of a jelly formula so it took three coats to be opaque but it is so worth it!



This collection is fantastic! It can be found on Zoya's website here. The two collections have polishes that are complimentary to each other and I think they would work together so well. I would love to hear what you think of this half of the collection and which polish is your favorite!

*Zoya sent this polish for review. My opinions are honest and 100% my own. Receiving polish for review does not affect whether I like a polish or not.*

    1. Thank you! I agree, it is a fantastic collection. If there is one negative with the collection I would say it was the staining.

  12. Aphrodite is my favorite from this half of the collection--so hard to photograph though! Impossible to capture the full beauty.
