Zoya Summer 2012 Beach Collection Swatches

Yesterday, I brought you the Zoya Summer 2012 Surf Collection. Today, I bring you the six colors in Surf's companion collection, Beach! All of the colors in this collection are bright, bold and perfect for fun in the sun. Read on to see all six colors up close and personal, each with two coats.

Wednesday is definitely my favorite of the six. The opaque faded turquoise reminds me of a Tiffany's box, which is never a bad thing! Application was smooth and even, and the color is perfect for any skin tone.

Shelby is one of three pinks in this collection, which I happen to think is a bit excessive. The bubble gum pink hue also makes it my least favorite, since I don't ever wear this shade of pink and think it's a bit too young for gals in their 30s. Application was a bit streaky with this one as well.

Reagan is another of the pinks in this collection, this one a deep creamy fuchsia with blue undertones. This is the darkest of the pinks, and isn't anything different or special -- I also think it would fit better in a fall collection. Cleanup was the most difficult with this one -- no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't remove all the polish from my nail beds.

Lara is the third of the pinks! The creamy magenta-rose hybrid is definitely my favorite of the pinks in this collection, but it's nothing I haven't seen before. However, it is a good, standard pink for summer.

Arizona is a creamy orange. While this would look fabulous on darker skin tones, it's most definitely not my color. I did love the application of this one, though.

Tracie is my least favorite of the collection. The frost-finish yellow-green with silver shimmer just doesn't seem to fit with the five boldly hued creams. The finish also gave me the most difficulty in applying -- multiple streaks and drags on the nail, with polish pooling in the corners.

The Zoya Beach Collection retails for $48 at Each individual bottle is $8.
