Zoya Summer Irresistible Collection

Swatches & Review

Zoya's Irresistible collection is one of their three releases for the Summer season. I have previously reviewed some of the Summer PixieDust, as well as the Stunning collection. The Irresistible collection has the similar colors to the ones in the Stunning collection, but unlike the Stunning collection, these have shimmery, metallic-foil finishes.

Zoya's Irresistible consists of six metallic foil-like finish shades.

Kerry: A shimmery golden yellow with a foil finish. It is definitely shimmery. For the swatches, I used two coats. This was the shade I did not like at all from this collection. The yellow looks weird against my skintone, and it was a pain to remove because of all the shimmery golden flecks.

Amy: A fiery red-orange with golden shimmer. Two coats were used for the swatches. The formula on this was great, it applied smoothly and was pretty pigmented.

Tinsley: A rose gold pink. The golden shimmer finish is very strong. This applied sheer, so I used three coats. The formula was great because it was not too thick, or too thin. This was a surprise favorite for me because it did not look that great in the bottle to me, but once it was on the nails, it was amazing! This is definitely a unique color and a stand-out from the collection because at some angles, you see the pink more, and at other angles, you can see the gold more. It's pretty awesome, I love it! This will slightly stain your nails, so I would recommend using two base coats before applying this. (& of course I had to include more pictures since this was such an amazing color!)

Bobbi: A magenta with a foil finish. Bobbi was very pigmented. I used two thin coats for swatches, but you could easily get away with one thick coat. This is a nice bright pink color for summer,but it is not a color I would choose myself because of personal preference. This stains a lot more than Tinsley does so two base coats would also be recommended for this.

Hazel: Icy blue with a foil finish. I used two coats for the swatches. The icy blue reminds me of the holiday season. This kind of reminds me of FeiFei because of the gold flecks, but this definitely looks more foil-like than FeiFei.

Rikki: A pine leaf green with a metallic foil finish. I used two coats for the swatches. This makes me think of FeiFei, but a green version because of the golden flecks in it. This applied easily and the formula was great.

Overall, I have mixed feelings about this collection because I am not too big on shimmery foil finish nail polishes because they are a bit hard to remove. I felt that out of the six, Kerry, Bobbi & Rikki were the hardest to remove because it the golden shimmer spreads everywhere! However, I really like some of the shades in this, such as Amy, Tinsley & Rikki. These took a while to dry for me, which is how it usually is for me when I use Zoya nail polishes. Compared to the Stunning collection, I think I like the Stunning collection more because the creamy finish is what I would usually go for. If you were to get a few from this collection, I would definitely recommend Tinsley because it is such an amazing shade!

What do you think about Zoya's Irresistible Collection? Have you purchased any nail polishes from their summer collection?

These are available for purchase on now, and they retail for $8 per 0.5oz bottle.
