Zoya Kerry

Hi you guys! :-) Happy Friday! I'm sooo excited cause it's a long weekend. Monday's my first paid holiday since the new year, and it couldn't have come at a better time. The stretch from January to May always seems unbearably long; work goes on at a crazy pace with dark depressing weather and no days off. The extra day of R & R is just what I need to recharge. :-) Do you guys have any plans for the long weekend?

Today, I'm kicking off the last of Zoya's summer collections and probably my favorite of the three (although that's hard to say with so many awesome colors lol). First up in the Zoya Irresistible Summer 2013 Collection is Kerry, a bright golden yellow with a glass fleck finish.






This color is so bright and sparkly, it makes me think that if you could bottle sunshine, it would probably look something like this. :-) In terms of its finish, even though Zoya calls this a foil, the finish seems more like their glass flecks (like those in the Sunshine Collection) than their foils (like those in the Surf Collection). The golden yellow shimmers are suspended in a mostly clear base. The first coat is quite thin and patchy, but the second coat fills in nicely and is what you see in the swatches. You may want a third coat depending on how totally opaque you like your coverage, but honestly, it's so sparkly that it's hard to see any unevenness, so that third coat is optional. :-)

You can find Kerry on Zoya.com for $8 for 0.5 fl oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 - $9 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

  3. Hmm I guess for me this one is too yellow to be a nice gold and too gold to be a nice yellow! And I know that foil/glass fleck problem haha :) Enjoy your long weekend!! I unfortunately don't have one... but I do have exams next week which means that I'll be 'free' from school!

  4. Good choice -- Kerry was the first of the summer collections that I had to have. It really is soooo sparkly in person, and your swatches really capture its sunshine-like qualities :)
