Zoya Stunning - Summer 2013

Today, I'd like to share the *Zoya Stunning collection for summer 2013.  I'll get right to the pics.
Here they are: Yana, Rocky, Josie, Darcy, Thandie and Micky

I started out my usual way, doing rainbow skittles, but, alas, as is almost always the case with Zoya collections, there were six colors to swatch on five nails.  What's a girl to do?  I decided to go with an accent nail of both Josie and Micky.  When I showed the completed mani to my husband, he immediately said, "Oh, watermelon."  Thus, an idea was born.  I decided to add dots of Zoya Raven as "seeds" and I think it came out pretty cute.  The result of this happy accident is below.
From thumb to pinky, two coats each: Yana, Thandie, Darcy, Josie and Micky, Rocky ("watermelon seeds" are Zoya Raven)

It should come as no surprise to readers that my favorite in the collection is Rocky.  I do so adore sky blue and this is like her deeper more vibrant cousin.  Each polish in the collection applied easily and was nicely opaque in two coats (with the exception of Darcy that was a tad patchy.  Oh, those tricky yellows).  These colors lend themselves PERFECTLY to "fruit-themed" manis and I know I'll be trying out more, soon.  Definitely a winning collection!
