Today I have the Zoya Stunning Collection! I was really looking forward to this collection when I first saw it, but I have to say I am a little disappointed, read on to find out why. The collection consists of 6 cremes:
"Summer brings the sunniest colors to nails! Including six super shiny creams to put
all the focus on the brightest shining light in any room - YOU!

Micky is a bright coral creme. I used 2 coats for full coverage. As you can see, I had a bit of an issue with an unsmooth formula, Micky was not very easy to work with, but I did manage to make it work for this Ikat mani. Micky is definitely a gorgeous color, I just wish the application wasn't so spotty.
Yana is a darker bright corally pink. Yana is a bit more red than Micky. I used 3 coats for full coverage. I did not have major application issues with Yana, although application as not as Zoya's cremes usually are.
Thandie is a bright creamsicle orange! I used 2 coats for full coverage. Thandie's formula was similar to Yana's, not the easiest to work with, but not terrible. I will definitely wear this bright orange this summer!
Josie is a medium forest green creme. I used 2 coats for full coverage. Josie had the best formula of all the Stunning polishes, it applied pretty smoothly and evenly. I think Josie is a good transition color into and out of summer, as it isn't as bright as some typical summer polishes.
Darcy is a bright yellow creme. I used 3 coats for full coverage. Application was a bit uneven, I tend to have issues with yellow polishes, but Darcy wasn't nearly as bad as others. Definitely a polish to grab some attention!
Rocky is a bright sky blue creme. I used 2 coats for full coverage. The formula was a bit difficult, but not horrendous. I really do love this color, I just wish the formula was a bit smoother.
Overall, I am disappointed with the Zoya Stunning Collection. I think the colors are stunning as the name suggests, but the formulas fell flat. Zoya polishes normally have some of the best formulas, so I think it may be a fluke. I have heard that some bloggers may have received "bad batches" and the formula issues don't affect everyone, but I am not completely positive of that.
Zoya Polishes retail for $8 and can be purchased at Ulta or on Zoya's Website.
