This summer we have THREE new collections from Zoya! This one is called Sunshine and it features six new shimmery metallic colors.

  • Reva – sparkling berry metallic
  • Kimmy – gilded red metallic
  • Apple – sparkling green metallic
  • Tanzy – dazzling tangerine metallic
  • Rica – shimmery rose metallic
  • Faye – gilded plum metallic
The formula on these was really pretty nice. A few of them did need three coats for complete coverage, but I had no issues at all.
Because they are SO shimmery, they will get little sparkly bits all over your fingers if you don’t take care when removing them. They nest way is to soak a cotton ball (or whatever you use) place it on your finger, leave it there for a good 20-30 seconds and wipe hard and outwards. Don’t go back over the nail with the same side of the cotton ball (flip it over or use a new one) or you will get the shimmery bits back onto your fingers.

Zoya Apple

Apple is a bright, cheery apple green color with strong gold shimmer. I really like this color and think it’s perfect for summer. The gold and green combo are really nice together. I did use three coats with this one because it was a little sheer.

Zoya Rica

Rica is a rose colored pink with gold shimmer. I like that it’s not a typical boring pink, the rose color with gold shimmer looks more unique to me. This was two coats.

Zoya Tanzy

Tanzy is a tangerine with gold shimmer. I love this one, which was a bit unexpected. Tangerine is SO much better to me than plain ‘ole orange, you don’t see as many nail colors this kind of orange. This was two coats.

Zoya Faye

Faye is a deep plum color with very heavy gold shimmer. I love this combination, it looks magical to me! I think it is my favorite one because it’s the most unique. This was a bit on the sheer side so I used three coats.

Zoya Kimmy

Kimmy is a bright cherry red with gold shimmer. Gorgeous red, perfect for summer, but perhaps not all that unique? This was just two coats, it was super saturated.

Zoya Reva

Reva is a medium berry color with gold shimmer. I don’t love this one on me personally, not a huge fan of berry colors, but it’s still nice. This was two coats.


Good collection, but some felt like I have seen before. I think the clear stand-out colors are Apple, Tanzy and Faye.
