Zoya Stunning for Summer 2013 Swatches and Review

Zoya Stunning

Zoya Stunning for summer 2013 features six bright, juicy new shades.

While they all look like cremes, four of them actually have nice hidden shimmer. I am totally in love with the way these all look together in the bottles. Quintessential summer!

Zoya Stunning Collection

Zoya Darcy
Darcy

Darcy is a bright sunny yellow creme with hidden yellow shimmer. This yellow is on the warmer side and is a wee bit streaky, but not too bad after three thin coats. It borders on being too warm/orange for me, as I can only pull off certain yellow shades, but I *think* it works still.

Zoya Thandie
Thandie

Thandie is a bright orange creme with hidden silver shimmer. This shade is stunning. It’s bright, kind of coral looking and so rich. This was just two coats.

Zoya Micky
Micky

Micky is what they classify as a coral creme but I call a medium pink with hidden silver shimmer. It was a wee bit streaky with just two coats. Work slowly to try and avoid as many streaks as you can. Three coats would probably work best here.

Zoya Rocky
Rocky

Rocky is a sky blue creme. Pretty shade, no hidden shimmer here though. It a tiny bit streaky on a few of my more heavily ridged areas of my nails (argh)! I used two coats here, which mostly completely covered.

Zoya Josie
Josie

Josie is a bright grass green creme with no shimmer. I love this shade. It’s super clean and fun. This was two coats, nice coverage.

Zoya Yana
Yana

Yana is a reddish pink with hidden shimmer. This is a really great bright shade and really nice coverage with just two coats.

Zoya Stunning Collage

Overall: Fun collection, very appropriate for summer. I love the ones with the hidden shimmer, but really like Josie as well. I think the one that I am most attracted to is Thandie, because I am SO into amazing oranges and corals right now. Mmmm I even love the way Thandie and Josie look together…

Availability: Zoya.

Pricing: $8.00.

What do you think of Stunning? Anything here you will be picking up?

    Totally in LOVE with Thandie! I’m a huge fan of bright orange shades for summer- think I’m going to have to order this one. Thanks for the fabulous swatches!

    This are cute but I’m a lot more excited for the Irresistible summer foils. Love Zoya!

    Eh….nothing I haven’t seen before. Wondering how the green compares to In the limelight by SinfulShine

    I had my eye on Thandie and Josie too, and your post confirmed that they rock! I will definitely be picking those two up.

    Well crap. Why couldn’t you have posted these before I ordered my Earth day promo shades???

    • April 23, 2013

      Sorry, I posted them when I got them!

  • April 22, 2013

    Oh I love ALL of these. Stunning indeed! The hidden shimmer ones are especially great.

    They’re all so pretty! I was pretty certain I didn’t need all of the colors but now I do! Josie and Rocky are my absolute favorites.

    They all look beautiful in the bottles, but nothing makes me drool. Just a little lackluster, and nothing special. Very expected for summer….

    Eh.. they look similar to OPI My Paprika is Hotter than Yours, and Suzis Hungary Again. The green reminds me of Essie Mint Mojito. I don’t think I’ll be buying these based on that, but they’re still pretty!

  • April 22, 2013

    I like Thandie but really, there isn’t a colour which is totally unique.

    I really love Josie.

  • April 23, 2013

    Funnily I don’t think I want any of these. They don’t look very original to me.

    Thanks for the swatches and review, I’m loving the summer colours. Rocky looks like a slightly lighter Breezi from a couple of summer’s ago, are they very similar?

    • April 23, 2013

      Not really, Rocky is a lighter shade, more sky blue whereas Breezi is deeper more muted.

    Thandie is gorgeous, I could even use a color like that in my collection this summer. Josie is really pretty too though I probably already have similar. I agree though, they look so summery in the bottles together!

  • April 23, 2013

    Such a great feel-good summer collection!
    I just added Josie to my order for the Earth Day exchange. I considered also adding Thandie b/c I too have been drawn to orange/coral shades lately, but feel like I have a few that are similar so I passed (this time, anyways).

    I have to say how much I appreciate your color-accurate swatches. The one I’ve purchased already is Darcy because based on Zoya and other blogger swatches, it looked like a vibrant lemon yellow cream. When I received it, I learned that it was much warmer toned than it appeared in all the photos I had seen. The color turned out to not work well w/ my skin tone. Yours is one of two or three swatches that accurately represent the warm undertone of this polish. Your review makes me feel confident about choosing which others I’d like to buy!

    • April 23, 2013

      I am so glad you find them helpful!

        Agree with Katie, seeing the colour accuracy is very appreciated! Darcy looks way different here than on the Zoya/ArtofBeauty website. and we don’t all have hands like their hand model :)

        I might pick up Darcy, it might actually work nice with my skin during summer!

  • April 23, 2013

    ooh, I loove Josie! I likely don’t need another green, but it just looks so happy!

  • April 23, 2013

    I don’t know if I’ll purchase any of these. However, they are pretty shades. I just don’t know if they are all that unique.

  • April 23, 2013

    I really like Yana and Thandie, but overall, I’m not really wowed by this collection.

    Kinda disappointed in the streakiness of some of them. I don’t have the patience for high-maintenance polish LOL. But using a matte topcoat helps get rid of streaks, so I suppose that’s a possibility.

    I love them all! I’m thinking of getting the collection with the exception of Yana because I have one that is similar already.
