Hello, lovelies! Today's post features the brand spankin'-new Paradise Sun collection from Zoya. It is comprised of five summer brights and one summer white. Feast your eyes!
Zoya Genesis (three coats)
Zoya Aphrodite, Selene, Oceane, Isa and Mae (two coats)
You know your girl Kari keeps it real, yes? Genesis was a super-bummer. I wanted to love it. In the bottle, it's a pearl-y white with beautiful shimmer, plus Genesis happens to be one of my favorite bands. But after three coats (one more than I like to have to apply), it was still slightly patchy and took forever to dry. I had dents and dings long after what I consider an adequate time to dry. *tear*
However, as much as I was unimpressed by Genesis is as much as I LOVED the remaining five colors in this collection. They are bright, jewel-toned and looked great after two quick easy coats. I know they will be in heavy rotation in my collection.
I ask that you please forgive my funky cuticles and nubs in the photos. As you can probably see, I had an awful thumbnail break and honestly, my only excuse for the wretched cuticles is that I haven't found a successful cuticle-care regimen. I'm open to any and all suggestions!
You can find these and all the Zoya polishes and products HERE. If you try them, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
