[Review+Swatch] Zoya Tickled Collection - Summer 2014
Hey guys! It's been too long. :( But I'm back with Zoya Tickled for summer 2014 - a collection of bright cremes perfect for wearing out in the summer sun. I had fun trying these out, so I hope you enjoy this post! :)
Kitridge, 4 coats: bright "summer bubblegum cream." The consistency was great, but I found that it applied a little patchy. Otherwise, it could have been opaque in three coats, but I need the fourth to even out some bald patches.
Wendy, 3 coats: "juicy summer melon" creme. I love corals, and this was no exception. It applied better than Kitridge and the consistency was great.
Rocha, 2 coats: "classic folly red cream with warm undertones." I swatched this one earlier in the month, which is why my nails are shorter. This one applied flawlessly in just two coats.
Rooney, 2 coats: "mid-range magenta pink creme." It leans a touch more purple than what my picture shows. I had no problems with the application. It flowed right onto my nail in two buttery coats.
Ling, 2 coats: vibrant, pigmented sky blue creme. Doesn't it look like a very saturated sky blue color? This one also applied easily without any problem.
Tilda, 3 coats: "warm mantis green cream." Tilda was a bit hard to capture. It's not as yellow-green as my pictures and a bit darker (closer to this). The color is gorgeous and very bright- I'd say it's the perfect lime green color. I thought it looked okay in two coats, but I did a third for pictures.
Verdict: I loved how bright these looked. Some of the cremes did apply a little patchy or streaky, but there were also some that really stood out with their easy two coat formulas. Overall, it's a fairly nice set of brights from Zoya.
Availability: This collection is currently available at Zoya.com for $9 each. Zoya polishes are also available in stores at Ulta. I recommend calling ahead to see if they carry this collection.
