Zoya Paradise Sun - Swatches and ReviewWednesday, June 03, 2015
Ready for Zoya's second summer collection? Get ready for some Paradise Sun! All of these have a metallic, pearl-like finish. Different for summer and a little refreshing.
Genesis is described as a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish - designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust! This shade required 3 coats because you could still see a few patches through the white with only 2 coats. I used thin coats and then topped it off with top coat. I like it but I feel like it would be more appropriate for the winter.
Mae is described as a warm magenta pink metallic with a pearlized finish. I actually really enjoy this one. Pair it with Nana for the perfect accent nail. This is 2 coats and top coat.
Aphrodite is described as vibrant summer red. After applying my 2 coats, it was good to go. I added top coat and was on my way! It looks almost syrupy, not metallic and pearlized. I like it better that way.
Selene is 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. There is a possibility of staining with this one because of how pigmented it is. Be sure to take precautions when applying this shade. Shows is 2 coats with top coat. I love this color and it's perfect for that beach day outing!
Oceane is described as a true turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters! This shade is so gorgeous and definitely resembles the ocean. I'd recommend wearing a ridge filler base underneath if you have bumps on your nails. Or, simply buff them away.
Isa is 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. I am in love with this color! I applied 2 even coats and a top coat. I love how the color shifts in different light. I highly recommend getting this shade if you're into color shifting polishes - even if it is subtle.
These shades are available now at $9 a piece or you can get the 6-piece sampler set for $54.
