Zoya Irresistible Collection

Today, I'd like to share the beautiful Zoya *Irresistible collection.  It is comprised of six lovely foils.  First up, Hazel, which I wore as my 40th birthday mani.  (Hold your applause.  I'm kidding, applaud away.)
Two coats of Zoya Hazel

A few days later, I decided to skittle the remaining five colors, as seen below:
From thumb to pinky, two coats each of Zoya Bobbi, Amy, Kerry, Rikki and Tinsley

Hazel, which I predicted would be my favorite of the collection (hello...B-L-U-E) was quite a surprise.  It features a healthy smattering (yes, a technical term) of golden, almost olive-y green foil mixed in with the blue.  I saw that in the bottle but didn't expect it to be so prevalent on the nail.  Definitely unique to me, though I've been told it's a bit reminiscent of Zoya Crystal, which I have never tried.  

The remaining five worn together reminded me of Good 'n Fruity or Mike 'n Ike candies, albeit foil-y ones.  Definitely a fun, vibrant collection for the summer.  My favorites are the aforementioned Hazel, Rikki (greens tend to run a close second to blues in my book) and, surprisingly, Amy.  With my cool skin tone, I'm generally not so much a fan of warmer colors like orange but this one really popped and my husband even commented on liking that color in particular on me.  I was least impressed with Tinsley (kinda meh, sorry to say) and Kerry (just not really a yellow person).  

Overall, this set is a winner and if you're into foils, I'd certainly recommend it.
