Aphrodite is one of the colors from the new Zoya Summer 2015 Paradise Sun Collection. All six of the shades in this collection are vibrant, juicy and eye-searingly vivid. But, from the beginning, Aphrodite stole my heart.
Zoya describes Aphrodite as "a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life. Think of fresh and juicy tropical fruit!" But I actually see this color as a shimmer-tinged tangerine. In both the swatches I've seen from others and on myself, it pulls way more orange than red.

I tend to shy away from oranges during the cooler months, but once summer hits, I'm ALL about them -- so this color is absolutely the right choice today! Two coats yield even, perfect color that's glossy, shimmery and shiny beyond measure.
I really think Zoya knocked it out of the park with Aphrodite. I don't have another color like it in my collection for sure. Happy summer, indeed!
