My Thoughts on the Zoya Barefoot Collection for Summer 2019
Hello lovelies! Today I am so excited to share this gorgeous Zoya Summer 2019 collection with you! I am so thankful to Zoya for sending me the Barefoot Collection ahead of time -- and I hope that you guys are as excited about these polishes as me!
The 12 piece Barefoot Collection is filled with bright shades and shimmery nudes that are all perfect for summertime! You can place a pre-order for these shades now, and shipping will start May 6th!
I was so excited to see some blues in this collection, but I have to give you all a little spoiler -- some of the nudes really blew me out of the water!
JOEY | Joey is described as a warm light pink cream, and I think that is the perfect description for it! I don't really like warm pink polishes, so this one is not my favorite on me, but I was able to get this to full opacity in 2-3 coats. The formula was a little sticky for me, but I added a drop of nail polish thinner and it then went on super smoothly.
TESSA | Tessa is described as a soft peach-toned salmon with a warm gold and coral micro-shimmer. I thought I was going to hate this polish, but I have to say I LOVE it! I think it is such a great summer polish, and one that I can't wait to wear once the spring showers leave. I got this opaque in 3 thin coats.
KEIRA | Keira is a medium sandy taupe with a light copper shimmer running throughout, and an absolutely gorgeous shade for my skin tone! The formula is perfect, and I got it easily opaque in 2 coats. I love love love this polish so much, and it may look similar to Beth from the Zoya Sophisticates Fall 2017 Collection, but I will be doing the comparison post this weekend.
MARCY | Marcy is described as a shimmering bright, hot coral, and I think that is a perfect description of it. Usually, colors like this are hard to photograph, but I think this is really color accurate. I love the pinky-shimmer that pops in this polish -- and it's very much a summer shade! This is 3 coats, and I still see a little nail line in my photos, but in real life it was fully opaque.
LIZA | Up next is Liza, which Zoya describes as a rich, cardinal red cream. This is such a hard color for me to describe, but I think this is more of a dusty raspberry color (at least on me). This one was tough to capture, but I did a little color correcting and I think this is pretty accurate to what it looked like on me. This is 2 coats for full opacity.
ROBBIE | Robbie is so so gorgeous, and described as a fizzy raspberry punch with a gold fleck. I think that is so spot on. What more can I say besides I love this polish, and I think it is so fun for summer! This reminds me of Margot Robbie in 'I, Tony' for some reason - but that makes me love it even more. I got this opaque in 2-3 coats.
DACEY | The next pink in this collection is Dacey, one of Zoya's classing hot pinks. I will (again) be doing my comparison pics this weekend, so you can see it compared to all the other Zoya pinks I own. Although this may not be unique, the formula is fabulous, and I got it opaque in 2 coats.
RIE | Rie is a magnolia purple cream, and a pretty unique shade in my collection! When I was in school at Northwestern University in Illinois, I always wanted a purple polish like this for game days! This has a real crelly formula, but I still got it opaque in 2 coats.
WALKER | Now the color I was probably most excited for, Walker, a deep ocean blue cream. I love love love this blue, it reminds me of being a teenager and rocking blues like this all summer long! Specifically this shade of blue reminds me of going to summer camp with my best friends, and we would always wear a blue similar to this. This is another crelly that I got this opaque in 2 easy coats!
ELENI | Eleni is a light seafoam blue cream, and it reminds me of the cresting waters on the Greek Island beaches I spent many a day on in the summer and fall! Wow, I was so happy to see a color that was both light and so vibrant on the nails! This was another polish that was a little sticky in formula, but I got it opaque in 3 coats.
BEE | Next I have Bee, a pale yellow with a warm undertone. Ah you know I love a good yellow! This is a true pastel yellow, but I will compare it to Jacqueline (my name sake yay) this weekend so you can see how it compares! I got this to full opacity in 3 coats.
DALLAS | Last but not least is Dallas, a clear base topped with silver glitter, large white hexagonal glitter, and small white glitter running throughout. I love these experimental polishes that Zoya is coming out with. This is the perfect topper for summer!
Boy oh boy do I love this collection! I am so so happy to finally be adding some brights and blues to my Zoya collection. I was so pleased with this whole collection -- but I have to say my favorites are Tessa, Walker and Bee! Close runner ups are Eleni, Keira, and Dallas......so as you can tell I love all of these polishes.
Right now Zoya is having a deal on this collection: Get the whole collection with our Barefoot Summer Box – everything you need to kick off a Summer of color!
