Zoya’s Beach collection

The counterpart to the Surf collection - five cremes and one shimmer, in summery near-neons and brights. The correspondence isn’t quite exact: Arizona is a softer, less red shade than Myrta; and Reagan is more fuchsia and less purple than Carly. Still, for the most part, they match up.

This collection contained:

  • Reagan — cool fuchsia creme
  • Lara — fuchsia-rose creme
  • Shelby — medium lilac-pink creme
  • Arizona — soft tangerine creme
  • Tracie — pale green shimmer
  • Wednesday — soft aqua-mint creme

When the promo pictures came out, I was immediately interested in Wednesday and Lara, from this collection. I wasn't quite as sure about Shelby (which looked like it might be a close match for Sweet, from the Candy collection.) Initially I was going to pass on Reagan, but when I saw a mani with that color I realized that it was less purple than its professional bottle photos on the Zoya site indicated.

I now own all the polishes in this collection, except for Tracie. Pale greens and I have a cautious relationship, and it's hard to tell if this one will just be too yellow to work with my coloring or not.
