The Zoya Stunning Summer 2013 Collection has been in regular nail rotation around Product Girl headquarters lately. While I was away, it sat quietly on my desk just waiting for someone to play with it for the first few weeks. First I noticed a shade missing from the bunch, then another one went missing and before I knew it, the whole collection had disappeared… and with good reason, it is gorgeous. You gals know I love a good creme polish and this whole collection is the embodiment of creme summer hotness in six bottles.
I really love Zoya’s approach to releasing new collections. They usually release 2-part collections, one with cremes and another with metallic or shimmers, whatever is on trend for the coming season. Normally I’m “meh” about metallic shades so I have come to count on Zoya for my creme fix and they delivered once again with Stunning. This collection is a favorite of mine for this season because all six shades are perfect for summer but I can see myself wearing most of these shades throughout the year in one way or another.
As I was trying on this collection, I became inspired to do something I never, ever, ever do… attempt to create some nail art (keep reading to see the look I created). These shades lend themselves so well to this. Darcy, the yellow in this collection, is not a shade I would typically wear on its own but I can see it becoming a staple in my new-found effort to be a nail artiste.
