Zoya Stunning Collection Reviews & Swatches

This week has kind of turned into collection week! :P I have yet another new collection from Zoya to share today. If you are interested in purchasing some Zoyas (excluding the PixieDusts) be sure to check out Zoya's new Earth Day promo!

Darcy is described as a sunny yellow creme. To me it's a bit darker than "sunny yellow" on the nail, but still rather bright. I used 3 coats and no top coat.
Formula was pretty streaky at 1 and 2 coats. It evened up nicely using a thick 3rd coat though. I'm not a big yellow fan and the same goes for this color. It's a nice yellow creme if you are looking for one though. :)
Joise is a grassy green creme. All nails are 2 coats and no top coat.
If you've read my blog for awhile, I'm not the biggest fan of greens and the ones I do like are mint greens or darker greens, but I love this green. That's say a lot for me too! :P Formula was perfection and almost a one coater.
Micky is a coral creme with a very subtle shimmer. This is 3 coats with no top coat.
The shimmer in Mickey isn't that obvious on the nail, but it is there. ;) Formula was ok. I think I could have gotten away with 2 coats had I been thicker with them. Otherwise it's a nice pink that I'm glad to have in my collection now! :)
Rocky is described as a serene blue creme. All nails are 2 coats with no top coat.
Serene blue is a perfect description for Rocky. It's a beautiful blue that I think is a must in any collection. Similar to Josie, formula was wonderful and almost a one coater!
Thandie is a citrus orange creme with a subtle shimmer. This is 3 coats with no top coat.
Orange never works for my skin tone yet Thandie does! It's a "cooler" orange tone and I think that helps make it work for me. Formula wasn't as nice though. :/ It was streaky at 2 coats and took a pretty thick third coat to even out.
Yana is described as Geranium pink cream. It has the same subtle shimmer as Micky and Thandie. I used 2 coats with no top coat.
Like Serene and Josie, it's almost took just one coat to become opaque and had a great formula. The color is really beautiful and definitely a must! 
Here's my fun nail art for this collection. :) I used all colors except for Yana over white and a simple dotting tool. One reason this took forever was my top coat kept dragging the design down because it wasn't fully dry :( You can see a little of this on my pinky nail, what can I say I'm impatient! :P

My favorites from this collection are Josie, Rocky, Thandie and Yana. Even though some of the colors required thicker coats they all dried with an average to quick dry time and were perfectly shiny with no top coat.
