Zoya Shelby

Hi guys! Another week is almost gone and the weekend is almost here! As usual, the weekend cannot come soon enough for me. :-)

Today, I have for you Shelby, the first of three pinks from Zoya's Beach Collection. Shelby is a cool-toned, soft barbie pink in a creme finish.







Shelby is quite a cool pink and contains a blue undertone. In natural and whiter lighting, the color looks more lavender pink. In artificial and yellower lighting, the color looks more candy pink. It has enough saturation that even though it is a light pink, it does not come across as a pastel.

The formula is a little on the thin side, so the first coat can be a bit streaky. Otherwise, it was easy to work with, and I didn't have any issues with pooling or running into the sides of the nail. Color payoff is good and I reached opacity in two coats. This isn't a totally unique color, but it is a pretty pink that will look lovely on cooler-toned skin.

You can find Shelby 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.

  3. I don't know if it's the same IRL but this pink really does stand out! It's a nice colour, but I don't think I'd buy it... well, let's face it. I would. And then I would wear it for half a day. Those barbie pinks saturate my mind really soon...
    It's perfect for a sunny day outside.

  7. I'm glad Zoya keeps their colors around for a while so I can ponder whether I need them--though lots I scoop up right away anyway. :)

  8. I can definitely see the kind of purplish/blueish undertone to this bright Barbie pink! Just screams summer :)
