Last week, I showed you Zoya's lovely Stunning summer cremes and now it's time for the shimmering part of Zoya's summer offerings, the Irresistible collection! First up we have Zoya Tinsley, a rose gold foil metallic. I am a fan of Zoya's foil metallic finish, it's very very shimmery and doesn't have some of the downsides of more traditional foil finishes (like patchy spots). The Zoya foil metallics always apply smoothly and look gorgeously sparkly. Tinsley is no different, it has some gorgeous gold shimmer action going on!


This is three coats of Tinsley. I did feel I needed a third coat for full opacity. This finish always dries really quickly and is easy to apply though, so three coats wasn't a hassle or anything. Even at three coats though, in direct sunlight, I had some VNL remaining (as you can see below). However, this had a very nice consistency, not too thin or thick, just perfect.




Base: one coat Nicole by OPI Base Coat Plus
Color: two coats Zoya Rikki
Top: one coat Poshe
Application: excellent (out of poor, average, good, excellent)

Zoya Rikki is right up my alley, a green foil metallic!! Zoya calls it "fern green", doesn't that sound gorgeous? Rikki is an interesting polish. Indoors, it looked like a green with a lot of silver sparkle, but outdoors I noticed some larger coppery looking flecks that are hard to see, but definitely provide something extra. If you look closely in my pictures, you can see what I mean.


Rikki applied really well in just two coats. Nice coverage, nice consistency. No problems here!




Base: one coat Nicole by OPI Base Coat Plus
Color: three coats Zoya Amy
Top: one coat Poshe
Application: excellent (out of poor, average, good, excellent)

Zoya Amy is a drool-inducing juicy red-orange foil metallic. It has lots of pretty gold shimmer that really looks perfect with this shade of orange. I am a big orange polish lover, and if you are too, you need Amy in your collection! The finish of this one looks smoother than the finish of Tinsley and Rikki. The shimmer in those looks a bit chunkier to my eye. Amy almost reminds me of a glass fleck finish, rather than Zoya's foil metallic finish.


Amy had the same really nice consistency as the other two. I did three coats because I thought two still had a little too much VNL. If you tend to do thicker coats, two will probably be fine. Amy was more pigmented than Tinsley at both two and three coats.


I'm looking forward to swatching the other three polishes in this collection! Zoya's foil metallic finish is always pretty, and I love these summer colors.

The Zoya Irresistible collection is available now at Zoya.com.
