Zoya Delight 2015 Collection

Zoya's Delight 2015 Collection has three cremes and three shimmers. I'll start with my favorite of the collection, Leslie, which Zoya describes as "a soft spring lavender metallic with an energizing turquoise flash." If you only get one from the collection, this is the one to get. Absolutely gorgeous! The blue shimmer really enhances the lavender metallic.

Zoya Leslie, three coats plus topcoat.
Eden is described as "a classic spring flower pink in a glossy cream finish" and I can't argue with that!

Zoya describes Lillian as "a faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish" but I would say it's more of a neon pastel blue. Unfortunately, neons make my skin tones look ghastly but the color really is lovely.

Rayne is described as "a dewy, spring blue metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash" and I would agree. This one is probably the "flashiest" of the shimmers.

To show how it works as a topper, here is one coat of Rayne over two coats of Lillian. I like it!

Zoya calls Tiana "a pistachio gelato green in a glossy cream finish" but to me it is more of a neon mint. Again, these kinds of colors are not the most flattering to my skin tone but it would be a great accent color.

Daisy is described as "a refreshing lemon merengue yellow metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash." I have to say that I was surprised at the choice to put a blue flash in a yellow foil. It doesn't quite make it a duochrome but it definitely flavors the color.

Each of the cremes covered well in two coats but the shimmers still showed visible nail line even with three coats. Zoya doesn't say that they are meant to be toppers but I showed Rayne over Lillian as an example of using it as one. I may also try stamping it, just to see what happens. All of the shimmers dried to a satiny finish but I added a topcoat to bring out the flash. I should also warn you that the "flash" in each of the shimmers can easily get all over your cuticle so be careful with application. The formula on those is thinner than that of the cremes and it's easy to flood the cuticle if you overload the brush.
