Nails ~ Zoya 2013 Summer Collection Nail Polishes

Zoya 2013 Summer Collection Nail PolishesZoya announced their 2013 summer sale on their Blog and Facebook pages that they were having a "buy one get one free" sale on their entire summer collection.  There were about 40 - 50 polishes to choose from and choosing was very hard because I couldn't find swatches for a lot of them on the internet.

Zoya's price point for their polishes is anywhere from $8 - $10 depending on the texture and honesty, that's just a bit too much for me to spend on polishes from any brand. I don't have a nail addiction and I don't have a massive collection, my collection is very small compared to some collections i've seen on YouTube.  But when Zoya announced this promotion, I was all in.

All the polishes I bought were $8.00 and with the "buy one get one free" promotion, I only paid for 4 so my total was $32.00 along with free shipping.  Below is highlights on all the polishes I bought with my opinions on each one.

Zoya Mimi Nail Polish is a deep purple with lavender sparkles throughout the polish. I achieved the color on the swatch with just two coats of polish, I did not use a top coat because I wanted the natural sheen to shine through.

Zoya Rica Nail Polish is such a beautiful orange with rose sparkles throughout the polish.  The photo doesn't do it justice because I couldn't bring out those rose spec no matter what angle I tried photographed the swatch.  I picked this polish because I don't have anything like it in my collection.  It has a natural shine and swatched without a top coat.

Zoya Charla Nail Polish This is a very beautiful ocean blue with teal sparkles throughout the polish.  Think ocean blue and teal swirled together to create a beautiful unique blue that takes your breath away.     Although I have other blues in my collection, I don't have one quite like this one.  It has a natural shine and swatched without a top coat.

Zoya Goldie Nail Polish I chose this color because I have a gold and red glitter chunk polish that i'm dying to use, I just needed a solid gold polish to use under it.  This gold is similar to a 14K gold, just a beautiful vibrant color that doesn't contain any sparkles.  It has a natural shine and swatched without a top coat.

 Zoya Kimber Nail Polish I wasn't sure about why I picked this one but i'm certainly glad I got it because it has very beautiful gold sparkles throughout the polish that's not really scene until you swatch it.  The color is fuchsia than rose and the gold sparkles amps up the color tremendously.   It has a natural shine and swatched without a top coat.

 Zoya Ivanka Nail Polish is sort of a jewel-marine color with various tones of green sparkles.  It almost has a two-toned look as in looking at two different colors swirled into one, hence the jewel-marine color I like to call it.  I don't have anything like this one in my collection and it's a color every girl should have.   It has a natural shine and swatched without a top coat.

 Zoya Reva Nail Polish Think cherry with gold sparkles and this is the color you'll have.  Zoya is very creative with their mixtures and i'm certainly in love with this color.  I have lots polishes in this color range that are matte and flat not containing any sparkles so this is such a welcomed change to my collection.   It has a natural shine and swatched without a top coat.

  Zoya Tanzy Nail Polish This polish is very similar to Rica above.  It's actually more of an orange /gold sparkle whereas Rica has more of a rose/gold sparkle.  This color really reflects the light which captures the gold sparkles and really brings out the orange.   It has a natural shine and swatched without a top coat.
