Zoya Tickled Collection Swatches and Review

 press sample 
Can you believe I went through most of the day yesterday believing it was Thursday? Boy, was that a letdown. I think I'm off schedule because of the blog being down earlier in the week. Anyway, today I have swatches of the beautiful Zoya Tickled Collection.  All are cremes which are my fave finish. There's just something about a clean, even, shiny coat of polish. Zoya released three sets this summer. You can see some nail art with the Bubbly Collection here. And the three Magical Pixies are coming to the blog soon. I'll say it upfront - I had a bear of a time getting a few of these colors to photograph correctly.

First up is Rooney. It's is a medium, pinky purple. I love, love, love this one. It's a perfect, summery pink. I used two coats.

Next is Rocha. It's a coral on steroids.  It's practically a red (although I didn't think it was as red as in the Zoya pic)...but with a pretty softness about it. My pic looks too orange. Great formula. This is two easy coats.

Tilda is a soft, warm green. This was the base of my Lacquer Legion GARDEN mani. It took three coats to get it completely even - but I often have that issue with greens. This swatch is pretty accurate.

Kitridge was by far the most difficult to capture. It's soft, but has a neon quality about it (it even dries semi-matte). The more I color corrected, the more alien my skin tone became - but you get the idea. It's very pretty. My swatch is three coats.

Wendy is a melon coral that has more pop than I expected. In fact, it uses florescent pigment (as does Kitridge which probably explains my photography struggles). I like how this one is also soft, but bright. This is two coats.

And finally, Ling is a medium blue...not in your face, but bright at the same time. I like where this falls in the spectrum of blues - I don't have anything too similar in my stash. This one had my fave formula of the bunch. I used two, easy coats.

All swatches are finished with Zoya Armor topcoat. This is a great collection of creme colors and a perfect complement to the Bubbly Collection (it would be fun to pair the similar shades from both collections into some monochrome nail art). Because I always pick the medium pinks as my favorites - I'm going to go with Rocha and Ling. :) What are yours?
