In two more weeks Summer will have officially hit the northern hemisphere, in Australia? Winter! Though you’d be surprise at the sheer difference in climate between Sydney and Melbourne. I step off the plane in Sydney with t-shirt attire and am forced to rug up the minute I land back in Melbourne at the end of the week.
But enough about weather, we’re here to talk about Zoya’s latest Summer collection, which consists of two mini collections. One called Surf, and the second called Beach which is what today’s post is dedicated to. You’ll find that the majority of these polishes are crème, except for Tracie that has the slightest amount of shimmer.
As always all swatches are 2 coats with no top coat.
A soft bright citrus orange crème, OPI’s Mummy Knows Best is a very similar shade, only the formula is a bit thinner and the opacity is far less.
A medium magenta-rose pink with subtle yellow undertone crème finish. Essie’s Tour de France is a pinker and darker version.
A deep, cool fuchsia pink with subtle blue undertone and an opaque crème finish. Zoya’s Areej is a lighter dupe, and Ulta3′s Footloose Fuchsia is a plummier version.
A soft but colourful cherry blossom pink with an opaque crème finish.
A faded, yellow-toned pistachio green with delicate silvery shimmer for a frosted pearl finish. I found Ulta3′s Lagoon to be a more yellow toned version.
A faded dirty medium turquoise with green undertone and an opaque crème finish. Another shade I couldn’t find a dupe for, and likely my favourite from this collection Rather unique. From the photo it almost looks like Tiffany blue.
