Zoya Beach Collection 2012: Swatches and Review

Hello there, I was a swatching fool this weekend, my cuticles are wrecked, LOL!

Today I have the first half of Zoya's new Beach Collection Summer 2012, "Beach", 5 beautiful cremes and one slightly frosted shimmer.














"Reagan"
2 coats, no top coat
Deep cerise pink creme



























Very pretty deep fuchsia creme, perfect!

"Lara"
 3 coats, no top coat
Vivid cerise pink creme



























I was surprised that this beautiful pink required 3 coats, but it did. Maybe it was just my bottle. : /

"Shelby"
3 coats, no top coat
Soft pinky pink creme



























This one was hard to get perfectly opaque and required 3 coats, so I had no visible nail line. It's a pretty pink, with blue undertones.

"Arizona"
2 coats, no top coat
Soft coral orange creme



























Love, love this color, bright without being neon! Coral? yeah...with a strong hint of orange, LOL!

"Tracie"
2 coats, no top coat
Sea grass metallic



























This frosted baby surprised me, I was ready to hate it, until it was on my nails, so pretty! Makes my nails look like iced limes! Yum!

"Wednesday"
2 coats, no top coat
Soft aqua creme



























This is a gorgeous soft teal blue, it rides that fine line between green and blue, very pretty!


Overall these cremes are very pretty and were a dream to apply, aside from the couple that required 3 coats. I think they are all worth the purchase if you see a color that you LOVE!

My favorites are "Arizona", "Tracie" and "Wednesday".  Must Haves for sure

I've seen some great manicures where ladies have used these colors for water marbling, I'm going to have to break out my bowl and start doing some water marbling, because their manicures look amazing!

Loving the 2 new Zoya collections - but because I HAVE to cut down on buying due to ran out of room long ago in the house for just about everything including polish, I will pick a couple shades only. I am such a fuchsia fan Regan is gotta come live with me. And I am totally into getting some great oranges for this season - Arizona is really calling me.
