Review | Zoya Summer 2014 Nail Polish in Rocha & Jesy*

Can you believe that in all of the time I've been blogging that this is my first ever post dedicated solely to nail polish?  It's not that I don't love the stuff, I genuinely do, it's more that I've always felt my nail painting skills were far too lacking to ever be photographed.

When I was sent a couple of shades of nail polish from Zoya's Summer 2014 collections however, I knew I had to change my mind and get practicing, as these were just too pretty not to share.

Zoya Nail Polish in Rocha and Zoya Nail Polish in Jesy

The first colour I received is Rocha from the Tickled collection and is described by Zoya as a classic folly red with warm undertones.  It's a cream formula, and whilst in one coat it's almost completely perfect, a second coat really gives it that 100% opaque look, with some practice I bet I could get a really stunning look with this formula.  I'm in love with all sorts of red based corals and oranges for nail so this fits right in; I think it will look particularly beautiful on both hands and feet when I have a tan so I'll definitely be taking it away with me in July.

The second nail colour I was sent is Jesy from the Bubbly collection.  Zoya call this one a fiery orange coral and it is certainly that!  It's a holographic finish and the pieces of metallic glitter are perfectly sized so that they apply to the nail nicely but are still eye catching.  I loved this shade layered over Rocha, but it also works really nicely after a couple of coats on its own.

I used both of these polishes on my toes the day after they arrived and I've been pretty impressed with the staying power.  Jesy started showing signs of wear after about four days (about what I'd expect from a glitter polish) and for Rocha it was at least five or six days.  The formula is a bit different from the average nail polish too,  Zoya polishes are classified as vegan friendly and 5-free i.e. they don't contain five of the nastiest ingredients found in your regular nail varnish; toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate.  All definitely a nice change from my usual nail colours.

The Zoya Summer 2014 Nail Polish Collections start from £10.50, there are 12 shades available and they can be found here.

Have you tried any Zoya nail polishes before?  What are your favourite nail colours for summer?
