Zoya Sunshine Collection Swatches!

Good Morning! It's almost the weekend...kinda sorta almost haha. Did anyone watch The Voice last night? I was kind of surprised by some of the people that got picked and also some of the people they let be on the show. There was one chick named Dia who I think is on Blake's team. I knew she looked familiar so I did some googling and wouldn't you know...she used to be in a band called Meg and Dia. I'm kind of surprised they even let her be on the show since I'm fairly certain they were signed and put out a couple records a few years back. All I remember about that  band is that I've somehow seen them twice, once when they opened for Anberlin/Bayside and they walked around the nasty stage without shoes on...I haven't really cared for them since then because it grossed me out so much haha.

Also wanted to mention that if you liked that fab Ozotic 506 ring I posted yesterday you can now buy it in the GingerKittyDesigns etsy shop. Tracey even named it after this little old blog of mine...how awesome is that! You can find it by clicking this link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/73423540/thepolishaholic-ring-ozotic-pro-506

On to polish...today I have for you guys the last of the Zoya Collections for Summer. This one is my favorite of the bunch which is why I saved it for last. The Sunshine Collection consists of 6 gorgeous polishes with a beautiful golden shimmer running throughout each!

Tanzy is an orange with golden shimmer. This is very dupey to Sephora by OPI Once A Cheetah, Always A Cheetah and I compared the two here! Great formula on this one, I used 2 coats for full opacity!

Apple is a bright green with that fab golden shimmer again. I actually don't like this one as much as I thought I would. It seems to pull a bit blue on me, after some of the swatches I had seen of it I was expecting something else...I do like it just not as much as I thought I would. This one was a little sheer, I used 3 coats for full opacity.

Faye is a purple kinda of  muave with a golden shimmer, dupealicious to OPI's Rally Pretty Pink which I compared here. I love this color so it doesn't really bother me if I have it from a couple different brands. This was a little bit sheer like Apple but built up perfectly at 3 coats.

Kimmy a surprise favorite of mine is a bright red that Zoya describes and Candy Apple Red with a golden sparkle and it so is that, it looks so juicy and amazing. I kind of can't believe myself loving all the reds from Zoya this summer...I'm usually not a huge fan of red polish! Also, the name of this polish makes me want to watch Full House! The formula was great on this one, I used 2 coats for full opacity.

Reva is a rich raspberry with a golden shimmer. Not much to say about it, I'm kind of indifferent to this one, I like it but it doesn't really stand out to me. Great formula on this one also, I used 2 coats for full opacity.

Last up is Rica in a pinkish orange coral with a the golden shimmer. Would you believe it...this is my favorite of the collection...it's pretty much amazing. A little bit sheer though, but who cares! I used 3 coats for full opacity!

    I have Faye and am waiting for Rica since it was on back order in the exchange. :( I love Faye so much, its so unique! I can't wait for Rica!!

    Apple is so weirdly blue on you... I kinda like it!
