ZOYA NAIL POLISH Wanderlust collection: Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! This summer has been pretty much never-ending, right? And I haven't quit complaining about all the things that upset me about Summer! Lol! But today, I want to share what I LOVE about the Summer and that is the bright colors! Summer is when we bring out all the neons, all the bold shades, all those happy colors! If anyone has recently nailed a Summer collection, then it's Zoya Nail Polish and Treatment with the bright, fun Wanderlust collection!

The Wanderlust collection consists of 8 bright cremes and 4 beautiful shimmers.  Across the board, I found the formula of the cremes to be surprisingly amazing--all of them are bright, pigmented shades, most of them are all but neon and yet the formula was a dream to work with! Not only did they apply beautifully but if you tend to pain in thicker coats, you could get away with just 1 coat with ALL of them! As for the shimmers, 2 easy coats and you get perfect full coverage! Unless specifically mentioned, all the swatches below show just 2 easy coats of each polish by itself, with 1 coat of topcoat on the middle and pinkie fingers, for the sake of comparison. I found all the shades to be pretty shiny on their own but if you have ridges on your nails, like I do, a extra coat of topcoat just finishes the look that much better!

Arbor is described as "a rich olive green cream". Now I'm not usually a fan of greens but this interesting shade actually caught the eye of one of my closest friends who immediately adored it! So, it definitely garners attention!

Byrdie is described as "a muted fuchsia pink cream". Not all pinks work with my complexion, sadly, so I was thrilled to discover that this one did and that too, so perfectly!

Cora is described as "a muted coral cream". Juicy, bright orange that also works with my complexion!

Esty is described as "a rich bubble gum pink cream". The perfect Summer pink!

Journey is described as "a shimmering strawberry red". The intense shimmer in this beauty means that it leans more orange on me but this is an orange I can totally get behind!

Lois is described as "a rich magenta violet cream". One of my faves in this collection, I LOVE this bright shade of purple!

Mandy is described as "a shimmering berry pink". Another instant fave, this shade is just super pretty!

River is described as "a shimmering cobalt blue". I have several favorites in this collection but if I had to pick just one, this one with its mermaid vibes would be the one!

Sawyer is described as "a soft taffy orange cream". Doesn't this one just remind you of refreshing Summer sorbet?

Scout is described as "a shimmering moss green". The shimmer in this green is what makes it so intriguing!

Sonia is described as "a summery crimson red cream". This deliciously juicy shade holds the distinction of my most used shade this Summer--pedis, manis, you name it! This one has seen it all!

Winnie is described as "a soft watermelon pink cream". Pretty and feminine, this is a pink that my younger readers are sure to love!

With the 12 nail polishes shown above, Zoya also released 3 brand-new Perfect Lipsticks with this collection. Shown below, from left to right:

  • Kay: a creamy sheer red
  • Kirby: a bright sheer watermelon pink in a hydrating cream formula
  • Kitty: a neutral shimmering pink in a hydrating cream formula

These sheer cream lipsticks are incredibly hydrating and are perfect when you just want a pretty wash of color! Try layering them with your favorite matte for a shade all your own!

  1. This collection is so bright and beautiful. I have so many I'd love to try including Arbor, Cora, the strawberry shimmer etc. I'm excited that I'm going to be getting a couple of the Zoya lipsticks soon!
