I've got the second half of the Zoya summer collection today, Tickled! If you'd like to see the first half I reviewed, Bubbly, click here. Tickled is a highly pigmented bright creme collection that made me fall in love with cremes all over again. There are even some neon-like ones in here! These formulas and colors warrant individual attention so lets get to it.
Bright pink bubblegum creme
I I think Kitridge has some neon pigment in it! When I put it on it was SO BRIGHT. It reminded me of the neons China Glaze put out last year only with a fantastic formula, yay! It starts a bit streaky but covers evens at the third coat. Topped with a nice thick coat of Zoya Armor Top Coat to even it all out. Bonus: it makes my bad German self look tan!
Bright magenta creme
I had a hard time getting this one to photograph correctly. Rooney is actually a little darker and dustier in real life, but still very bright (just a smattering of neon juice maybe?) Lovely formula, I did two coats and a third thin coat, plus a thick coat of Zoya Armor.
"A juicy summer melon"
Wendy is without a doubt my favorite. It again reminds me of China Glaze neons but with a perfect formula instead of a crappy one! Three coats and a thick coat of Armor to completely smooth it out. Yum.
A bright red-orange (or orange-y red?) creme
Holy wow, Rocha! First off, paint carefully, this one is a stainer if I ever saw one. That aside, two thick coats and Armor make this shine. Can't decide if it's just bright or neon... either way this is literally fire on your nails.
A bright royal blue creme
Ling is so pigmented it feels bright but it's still a darker color... does that even make sense? Y'all must know what I mean though. Two thick coats for full coverage and a thick coat of Zoya Armor.
A bright "mantis green" creme
I don't know how else to describe Tilda other than "mantis green." It is a green I always find myself looking for in the summer in my accessories and polish, so I love it! Doesn't make one too lobster-y either which is a bonus. I did two thick coats of this one for full coverage and a thick coat of Armor.
All of these cremes are gorgeous and a must for creme lovers. All of the colors truly look like they would be flattering on any skin tone. Make sure to use thicker coats and a nice thick coat of top coat for the lovely glossy finish. The formulas though made me remember why cremes can be as beautiful a choice as something shimmery. Which ones will you pick up for this summer?
