Zoya Surf Collection

A couple days ago, I shared the Zoya Beach colors; today, again thanks to the folks at Zoya, I have the other half of the Beach & Surf collection for Summer 2012. Surf is six shimmers, some of which hop over the border into foil finish territory. Carly is rich warm purple with packed with deep pink and silver shimmer. Of course I love this one. Kimber is a deep tropical punch pink with golden shimmer. Rory is a purple-leaning pink chock full of deep pink and silver shimmer and quite foil-like in appearance. Myrta is a reddish orange with pink and gold shimmer (the Zoya site says silver and gold shimmer, but I definitely saw pink in there—maybe that's the silver shining through the base color). Meg is a yellow green full of silver and green shimmer (that might be gold shining through the base color). Like Rory, this is very foil-y. Zuza is a turquoise with silver shimmer. This is my favorite from the group; it puts me in a beach vacation frame of mind. I used two coats of most of these. Kimber was three coats; its shimmer seemed less dense than the others. Carly was almost a one-coater; it's quite opaque and pigmented. I'm not quite done with Zoya Beach & Surf; tomorrow I'll show you what happened when I used them to play with my dotting tools and tape and stamping stuff.
