Zoya Summertime Swatches, Reviews, Photos

Zoya Summertime Collection includes six cream finish shades for the summer. The shades include: Areej (pink with an opaque cream finish), Breezi (soft, dusty medium cerulean blue with an opaque cream finish), Kieko (warm, red toned dusty oilght purple with berry tones with an opaque cream finish), Mira (blue-toned medium purple with dusty lavender tone an an opaque cream finish), Sooki (bright, clean, crisp cool cherry red cream with subtle jelly finish), and Tamsen (medium warm brick red with strong orange tones with an opaque cream finish).

  • Areej is a medium-dark magenta pink with a creamy finish. I used two coats. It reminded me of Barielle’s Daring Dahlia without the shimmer.
  • Breezi is a medium-dark cerulean blue with a creamy finish. I used three coats. It is a dustier, more muted version of SpaRitual’s Crystal Eyes. It is darker and more muted than Zoya’s Robyn.
  • Kieko is a medium magenta-tinged purple with red undertones and a creamy finish. I used two coats. It seemed similar to an older limited edition shade by MAC called For Fun.
  • Mira is a dusty grape purple with a blue-base and creamy finish. I used two coats. It darker and less blue-based than Orly Charged Up and SpaRitual Illume.
  • Sooki is a bright cherry red with a creamy finish. I used two coats, but it was almost opaque in one. It’s similar to China Glaze Cherry Pie without the shimmer and China Glaze Hey Sailor.
  • Tamsen is a rich, orange-based red with a creamy finish. I used two coats. Essie’s Red Nouveau and Rescue Beauty Lounge Chinoise are a touch lighter and China Glaze Ruby Deer and Butter London Pillar Box Red are quite similar.

my thoughts on the formula: Zoya’s cream formula is beautiful here–thin without being runny or watery or too sheer. With the exception of Breezi, they applied in two coats for a creamy, opaque look.

Woke up this morning, saw your tweet about the long-awaited “deal,” ran to your swatches, and ordered four. Without you, I would have been lost, and would have returned home to hear of the deal and find nothing left.
Thanks, Christine!

These are nice colors.

I found the Areej name interesting.. it is the name of a cosmetics and perfume retail chain in our area . also it’s an Arabic word for flower scent

Great colors, even though I don’t find them really summer colors..
Btw I think Zoya Areej Nail Lacquer has a great dupe in Essence Mr. Big, if you’d like to add it on your dupe list 🙂

Thanks so much for doing such a great job in showing all of the colors so well in this and the other Zoya summer colors. You are amazing (so is Zoya!)

When I saw Sooki and Tamsen in the bottle, I thought they looked different enough, but I’m not sure I can tell them apart on the nail! Is Tamsen oranger? At any rate, I like them both!

Is it just me or does it seem like zoya comes out with the same nail polish colors over and over again? lots of reds and raspberries, lots of blue grey purple colors, aside from some of the reds (and the new mod mattes) it seems their colors usually tend toward the muted side, like the crayola markers they used to sell as “bold” colors

I was so disappointed in this collection. All the colors are so basic and nothing says “summer” to me. I passed on the zoya buy one get one special.

I just put on Areej and thought… hmm.. familiar… is it just me or is it a dead on dupe for OPI Dim Sum Plum? Love the color, but yeah, I loved Dim Sum Plum too! 🙂
