Today I have the second part of my Zoya Irresistible swatches, starting with Zoya Bobbi. Bobbi is a very bright and shimmery hot magenta foil metallic. I know a ton of people who really love to rock a magenta in the summer and they will really love Bobbi. It seems like a really saturated jewel-like color and despite the fact that pink is not my favorite polish color, I really like Bobbi!


Bobbi was also nicely pigmented, needing only two coats for full coverage. The formula was great, just like the first three polishes I tried from this collection.




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

 Although I feel like I've seen polishes similar to Zoya Hazel, I just can't stop myself from drooling all over this beautiful blue foil metallic. Hazel has the same kind of cool coppery/gold flecks in it as Rikki. I think you can actually see these flecks in the macro shot below. You can only see them in person if you look hard, but they definitely add extra sparkle and make the finish a little different than other polishes in this same color and finish.


Hazel's formula is amazing too, so easy to work with and only two coats to perfection. The picture below just makes me want to go swimming in my nails... LOL, not weird at all.




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

Zoya Kerry is an interesting yellow gold foil metallic. Kerry has a slightly different finish than the other Irresistible polishes. Zoya calls it a "microfoil metallic". It's kind of like tiny little flecks of metallic shimmer. I love yellow golds, so I like Kerry a lot! It is a big brighter than these pictures show, I think my camera was a little confused by the "microfoil".


Kerry definitely needed three thicker coats and it was the least pigmented of the whole collection. I thought it was pretty opaque at three coats, but like Tinsley, in direct sunlight, I could still see some VNL. Application was fairly easy and good, you just will need an extra few minutes for the extra coat or two.


Overall, my favorites of the Zoya Irresistible collection are Rikki, Hazel and Amy. Quite frankly, I wanted Bobbi to be a favorite so that I could type "my favorites were Rikki, Bobbi" *says in weird accent* (Talladega nights anyone?).  Anyway, if you're a fan of Zoya's foil metallic finish, you will definitely like these lovelies. I am not altogether sure that they scream "summer" to me, summer colors to me would be brighter. This won't stop me from wearing these pretties though (I think Rikki would be fabulous at Christmas actually!). Check out my review of the other three polishes from this collection here if you missed it.
