I’m always frustrated that my local Ulta doesn’t keep its Zoya shades properly in stock, and I’m definitely guilty of driving out of my way to scope out other stores to see what they have available. I can’t help it: Zoya polishes never dye my nails, always wipe off easily, and are consistently in a variety of shades and finishes.

The brand usually releases two collections at once, and this summer, it was the six-shade crème collection Stunning and the six-shade shimmer collection Irresistible. Of the crèmes, I loved the light jade green Josie, the dusty sky blue Rocky, the sunflower yellow Darcy, and the citrus orange Thandie, whereas I can’t see anything wrong with any of the shimmers: sun yellow Kerry; pink and gold Tinsley; blue and silver Hazel; orange and gold Amy; fuchsia Bobbi; and green and silver Rikki. They all have excellent depth, and although they may be too bright for work, they’re wonderfully pretty.

And if you still haven’t jumped on the textured glitter bandwagon, do so with Zoya’s summer additions to its PixieDust collection. Although the citrus-themed shades—tangerine Beatrix, deeper orange Destiny, and gold Solange—may be out of season now, berry Miranda, lilac Stevie, and cobalt blue Liberty will work well for upcoming holiday parties. Honestly, Liberty is one of the prettiest blues I’ve ever seen.

AVAILABILITY: Zoya Stunning and Irresistible collection shades are $8 each and PixieDust shades are $9 each at Ulta stores or Zoya.com.
