When summer rolls around, all I want to do is paint my nails with super bright colors. Enter Zoya Aphrodite.

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.

The bottom of the bottle. As you can see, "Aphrodite" is spelled wrong, but I think it gives the bottle character.

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!

What's on your nails right now? Let me know in the comments!

  7. Beautiful shade but I have to tell you I laughed when I saw the label. I've had other Zoya polishes that they spelled the name wrong. At least they get the polish right.
