Zoya Wanderlust Summer 2017 Collection – Swatches and review

The Zoya Wanderlust collection has just released! It consists of eight full coverage cremes and four shimmers. The Wanderlust polishes are individually priced at $10, and also available as a 6-PC set for $60.00. You can get them from Zoya.com if you’re from the US or eleven.se or purecosmetic.se if you shop from Sweden.

 Zoya Arbor. Stunning army green creme! A bit sheer and thin though, so I needed 2-3 coats for full coverage.


 Zoya Byrdie. Such a pretty color! So berry and squishy! I LOVE THIS! The formula was great and I had no problems at all with the application. I really like this polish! Two coats and top coat.


 Zoya Cora. Coral-orange-ish creme. I had som trouble swatching this one. I needed three coats for full opacity, the formula was very thin and it was hard to make it even. It became very patchy at the first two layers.


 Zoya Esty. OCW! What you see is one coat with top coat. Applied like a dream! I’m not totally in love with this bubblegum-ish Barbie pink, but since the formula is perfect, I’ll give it a 10/10.


 Zoya Journey. Shimmery strawberry red with a hint of orange. Two coats, easy to apply and to work with. I really liked this formula.


 Zoya Lois. OMG, I love this shade! It’s so flattering! And the formula was pretty good as well. Easy to apply and I needed two coats.


 Zoya Mandy. Very opaque shimmering berry pink with nice formula. Two coats and top coat is what you see.


 Zoya River. OMG! I love this so much! This shimmering cobalt blue looks amazing in real life! Sooo shimmery! It’s a stunner! Two coats was needed for full opacity and the formula was really good. Easy to apply.


 Zoya Sawyer. Two coats and top coat. Peachy, apricot creme with nice formula. A bit on the thinner side, so watch your cuticles!


 Zoya Scout. Not my color at all. Shimmery yellow-green-ish with a hint of gold. It was also very, very sheer and I needed four (!) coats for full opacity. I did actually try it over Arbor, that army green, and that looked amazing! I think that this polish just need some underwear.


 Zoya Sonja. A summery crimson red cream. Easy to apply and I needed two thin coats for full opacity.


 Zoya Winnie. The standard pink creme. Nothing spectacular. The formula was nice though. Two very thin coats for full opacity and it was so easy to apply! No streaks or patches or anything.


And that’s the Wanderlust collection! My thoughts about the whole collection: there are some polishes that are too similar and I would love a little bit more variety. I do like that almost every polish feels a bit neon, even the red. The colors are so vibrant and really pop on the nails! It’s a fun collection that I really like (except for that green shimmer) and I think there’s a color for everyone in the collection. Everyone can find their new favorite polish here.

Zoya Charming Spring 2017 Collection – Swatches and review


Zoya Charming Spring 2017 Collection:
Millie – violet shmmery microglitter
Amira – sheer dewy blue microglitter
Lacey – sheer dewy green microglitter
Jordan – baby pink creme
Tina – amethyst cream
Abby – light lavender cream


Zoya Spring 2017 – Abby

Zoya Abby is a light lavender cream. It’s a nice polish and I really liked the creamy formula. This is two simple coats and top coat.


Zoya Spring 2017 – Amira

I would describe Amira as a sheer dewy blue microglitter. It’s on the sheer side and I applied two coats but can see now that I would need three coats for full coverage and depth. It was easy to apply and control and it dried pretty fast. Two coats and top coat.


Zoya Spring 2017 – Tina

I really like this amethyst shade! It’s so flattering. Had no problems what so ever with the application, it applied like a dream. What you see is two coats and top coat.


Zoya Spring 2017 – Millie

I would describe Millie as a very shimmery micro glitter. It’s normally not really my cup of tea, but I like this one. I should have used three coats though for more color density. The formula was ok, just a bit hard to control and really wanted to go underneath my cuticles. Two coats and top coat.


Zoya Spring 2017 – Lacey

This is Amiras green sister, a sheer dewy green microglitter.  It was easy to apply and control and it dried pretty fast just like Amira. And I should have used three coats for color density, even though I like this one a bit sheer. What you see is two sheer coats and top coat.


Zoya Spring 2017 – Jordan

The formula was on the thin side and a bit hard to control around the cuticles. This was the only polish I felt was a bit disappointing. This is two coats and top coat.


Summary: It’s not a unique collection, but I actually like every one of them. Abby and Jordan are, for a polish junkie, the least interesting. Pretty spring pastels but a bit dupeable. The sheer microglitter sisters, Amira and Lacey are interesting and looks so much better in person. But 3-4 coats for best color density? I love them and hate them at the same time, lol. They are pretty at 2 coats only too. Millie is the star and the most interesting polish in this collection and I like a dark shade as a contrast to all the pastels.

What do you think of the collection?
