Zoya’s Sunshine collection

Yeah…remember when I said that none of the Zoya colors from their summer 2011 collections interested me? I kind of caved on that. During their BOGO promotion I decided to get Breezi, because I don’t really have many medium-blue nail colors (they’re all navy or variants thereof.) And then I saw Faye, and thought: that looks kind of interesting, like a brighter version of Anastasia. And then I added Apple, because I don’t have many bright greens, and Reva, so that I would get another free polish. (I had my cart filled with other shades, hoping that their Great Big Huge Promo would let us choose from among the whole Zoya product range. This did not happen; and thus Mia, Paige, Vivi, and several other colors are still sitting in my cart.)

This collection was six bright, metallic-foil microglitter shades, and included:

  • Apple — metallic new-leaf green foil microglitter
  • Faye — metallic gilded purple foil microglitter
  • Kimmy — metallic candy-apple red foil microglitter
  • Reva — metallic berry-red foil microglitter
  • Rica — metallic coral-red foil microglitter
  • Tanzy — metallic tangerine foil microglitter

The Sunshine collection had two "partner" collections for summer 2011: Summertime, six deeper candy-colored cremes; and Mod Matte, three ultra-bright neon matte shades.
