Hello polished friends! Today I have swatches of the new Zoya Tickled & Bubbly Collections for Summer 2014. As they usually do, Zoya has released two 6-piece sets, one made up of cremes and one featuring six jelly-based glitters with a iridescent flash. Let’s take a look at these bright, summertime shades!
The Zoya Tickled Collection features six creme polishes in bright summery shades. All of these swatches were done with CND Stickey Base Coat and no top coat. First up is Zoya Kitridge, a light, yet bright, pink creme. In certain lights, it’s nearly neon. Here I used three coats but two coats would be fine with careful application. I experienced a little streaking with two coats.
Zoya Ling is a bright blue creme. I love this color. I have plenty of other blue cremes like this in my collection, but the formula on this one made it stand out. This is two easy coats.
Zoya Rocha is a bright red-hot orange with a shimmer that is visible in the bottle and in direct light on the nail. This is two easy coats.
Zoya Rooney is a blue-toned pink creme. Girly and fun. This is two easy coats.
Zoya Tilda is a bright green creme. You know I love green polish! This is a bit more lime green than Zoya Josie, my go-to green creme. This is two easy coats.
Zoya Wendy is a coral-pink creme. I had some issues with a streaky formula on this one, but still got away with two coats.
The Zoya Bubbly Collection features six jelly-based polishes filled with golden shimmer and iridescent glitters. Zoya describes them as holographic, but I’m not sure I’d use that term. They build up nicely (visible nail line is never as noticeable in real life as it is under the bright lights and macro lens), and they go on really smoothly! These swatches were done with CND Stickey Base Coat and no top coat.
First up is Zoya Harper, a girly pink jelly with glitter. This is three coats to cover some visible nail line, but you could definitely get away with two coats.
Zoya Alma is a yellow-orange jelly-based glitter polish. I was surprised how yellow it is…in the bottle it looks much more orange. This is three coats, and you could still see a bit of visible nail line.
Zoya Binx is a pink jelly polish with glitter. It’s a few shades darker than Harper. I used three coats here, but you could definitely get away with two.
Zoya Jesy is an orange jelly-based polish with glitter. This is probably my least favorite. I used three coats and still had some visible nail line.
Zoya Muse is a blue jelly-based polish with a fierce teal-green shimmer shift and glitters. Very pretty and difficult to capture on camera! The visible nail line looks way worse here than it was in real life. This one needs to be seen in person! This is three coats.
Finally, we have Zoya Stassi, the green of the collection. I was a bit disappointed with this one, as three coats was still a bit sheer, but still pretty.
Overall, I was surprised by how much I liked some of the Bubbly Collection. They are smooth and pretty, and unlike other jelly-based polishes, they build up quite nicely. You could definitely layer them over the corresponding Tickled Collection colors for a more opaque look. The Tickled cremes are pretty, and I’m looking forward to using them in nail art for summer!
