Zoya’s Beach And Surf Collection: Zuza And Arizona

Zoya nail polishes were unknown to me before I became a beauty blogger. Before blogging, I didn’t stretch out much, at all, with the close circle of brands I used. Once I started blogging, however, I was reading more and more about Zoya. The many favorable reviews I read got me interested, and I had to see for myself. I found the comments to be true; Zoya polishes are that good.

The newest collection, Beach and Surf, have awesome summer of 2012 shades. I picked two that I thought were the most summer-y to me. Here’s what I chose for my fingernails…

This one is named ‘Arizona’. What an orange creamsicle color! When I put my fingers up to my ears, I hear this color screaming ‘SUMMER’!!

Applying cremes are such a challenge for me. It is about as illusive as trying to do a chin-up. But, getting this creme to look nice was easier than usual because Zoya has such a wonderful formula…

I applied three coats and topped it off with Seche Vite. ‘Arizona’ is almost a matte on me. Even the Seche didn’t seem to help it get to a high shine. But there is no denying that this creamsicle reminds me of a hot, hot day.

I have had just a couple of opportunities to wear sandals over the past month. I’m not really a ‘sandal person’. It’s not that I have something against showing my feet, it’s just that my work doesn’t allow toes to show. So when I can wear them, I want to have on the cutest polishes. ‘Zuza’ fit the calling this time…

I like my toes to twinkle. And I love wearing those ‘different’ colors as a pedicure. Maybe because it used to be a safe place to wear polishes that I wouldn’t wear on my fingers. Well, I’m easily over that now but, I have a special place in my heart for blue on my toes.

‘Zuza’ is that special…

This shade is a silver-sparkly teal shade that reminds me of the waters off a tropical island. That’s pretty summer-y. And, ‘Zuza’ is the type of turquoise that can look good on almost all skin tones. I’m not a lover of turquoise at all! But, when it’s made up like ‘Zuza’, I can get into that one.

You can find Zoya polishes at Ulta and on Zoya’s website. I usually order from the website because Zoya has some of the best specials. I got 3 for $15 from the last special. And their shipping time is very good.

What are your summer favorites from Zoya?
