Hey! Today I have the Zoya Sunsets Collection to show y'all. This collection is described as saturated and one coaters. So, let's jump in and see how I feel about the formulas.
Let's start with the orange. Most of you know, I'm not a big fan of orange or yellow, but I do like this orange. It's not a full on Crayola orange that looks awful with my skin tone but it's more of a bright deeper shade with a juicy look.
I was unable to do one coat with this. I ended up doing two coats with a top coat.
The formula really is saturated and buttery.
I'm a bad blogger and polish addict because I ran out of swatch sticks a long time ago and never bought more. So, instead of showing you swatches I just have bottle shots. It's better than nothing, eh?
From left to right: Cam, Jancyn, Rocha, Demetria.
The closest out of this group are Cam and Rocha; however, Rocha has more red whereas Cam is more orange.

This is a watermelon red. I love these type of reds because they lean more pink and are more flattering on me than a orange/red.
This is one coat with top coat.
I didn't have a lot of watermelon reds in my Zoya collection. From left to right: Dixie, Hannah, and Juh-nelle (please read in Barbara from Teen Mom 2s voice and throw in a "Keiffah" and "weed" for good measure).

Awww...look at this sweet medium toned pink. Love me some pinks!
This is one coat with top coat.
This one kinda had a crelly/jelly squishy feel to it.
From left to right: Brynn, Rooney, Nana. I feel like Brynn is right in between the Rooney and Nana.

This reminds me of an orchid shade.
This is one coat plus top coat and also has a squishy feel to it.
You know, I freaking love shades of purple, but for some strange reason my Zoya collection is mostly deep shades of purple. I need to correct that. I'm not even sure why I took this picture.
From left to right: Liv and Serenity. Not even close.

"Softened jade green with a hint of blue." I'm thinking green is my favorite color for this season, especially the minty green ones.
One coat plus top coat.
Left to right: Ness, Jace, Tilda. Ness is the only green here that leans mint.

I really love this cornflower blue.
This is one creamy coat plus top coat.
Left to right: Dory and Ling. Sorry, I don't own Yummy or Robyn but they're both on my wish list along with a bunch of others.

I was able to apply five out of the six in one coat and all six of these had excellent formulas.
One thing I want you to take away from this post though: I went into my swatching session determined to make these work with one coat. I prepped my nails each time and used INM base coat with each swatch. I applied each one very carefully. Will you be able to apply each of these in one coat? I'm not 100% sure. However, I am 100% sure that these are great formulas.
I'll have my seashells collection swatch, review and comparison post up next week. The pixie dusts are my all time favorite textured polishes and I own every single one and a bunch of backups. So, I'm super pumped about that post!
