Zoya Kimber

Hi there, lovely readers! <3

Today, I have for you Kimber, the last of Zoya's Summer 2012 Surf Collection. I am actually super excited to show you guys this one because it is my favorite from this amazing collection. Kimber is a super saturated strawberry pink with lovely golden shimmer in a foil finish.








Kimber is very bold and vibrant in person, and I tried my best to capture that in the pictures. Its base is an intense strawberry pink, which is most obvious when seen in natural lighting. In artificial lighting, the color can take on a more red sheen. The gold and pink shimmers bring a lot of warmth to this polish and give it a lot of depth. It is a gorgeous color you have to see in person to truly appreciate.

The formula is what I have come to expect from this collection. It goes on smooth and buttery, without any pooling or clumping. It has great color-payoff. I used two coats for the swatches, but one coat is almost enough. Drying time is a little faster than typical, so do work fast and don't use too many strokes over the same spot.

Now that I have tried all the polishes from the Surf Collection, I absolutely love all the colors. They are super shiny and look gorgeous in the sunlight. My favorite is of course Kimber, but the others are close seconds. This is probably one of my favorite collections from Zoya and is a must-have for the summer time. :-)

I would love to know what you think of this collection. What are the hits and misses for you? Will any of them be making it onto your wishlist?

You can find Kimber on Zoya.com for $8 for 0.5oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

  1. ah finally one I won't rob any bank for.
    It's gorgeous and your swatches are amazing and I adore all (almost) one-coaters, but it's too pink for my liking ;-)

    I do plan on buying the whole collection so I will probably get a second opinion once I see it in person, but for now I can breath a little LOL
