Good morning friends!!!
GGAhhh! so excited and happy to finally be showing you my swatches of Zoya’s Paradise Sun! I was really looking forward to playing with these guys and haven’t been able to do it sooner for various reasons so I’m happy to finally be able to show you these.
Let’s remember that Zoya came out with two Summer 2015 Collections, Island Fun made of six beautiful cremes (which you can see here) and Paradise Sun which is made of six shimmer filled shades. Today I’m showing you the latter, let’s get to it!
Is I think the worse of the six formula wise and also my least favorite. I’m not at all a huge fan of shimmery whites. Three awkward coats plus top coat were needed for the pics.
Was my favorite of the six, absolutely loved the gold shimmer peeking through the orangy red. 2 coats plus top coat in the pics
Is a bit too familiar of a shade to stand out to me. I was a bit underwhelmed by it also because I believe these kind of bright pinks don’t suit my skin. again two coats plus top coat in the pics
Be careful with this guy it kinda looked like it tried to stain my cuticle. It is really pretty though so double up on base and go for it! 2 coats plus top coat in pics
Another favorite. This is a gorgeous blurpe with a dreamy pearl finish. Two coats plus top coat in the pics
This pretty turquoise is very opaque and you can probably get away with one coat. But I did two just in case.
The overall formulas for these guys is a bit streaky on the first coat but can be mended on the second coat except for Genesis for which three coats were needed. The last three colors were a bit brush strokey for me but that can be easy fixed by sponging on your last coat.
The collection overall is very pretty but I am specially in love with Aphrodite and Isa so I do recommend you pick those two up at the very least.
Decided to do a little sponge mani using this collection. Hope you like it!

Genesis is the one I’m most excited about. Now I’m sad.
Isa Isa Isa! So pretty! It’s reminding me of a Revlon shad I just picked up and of course can’t remember the damn name lol It’s a newer one. Anyways, what a gorgeous polish!
It is!! I love it!!

Beautiful swatches! I’m looking forward to Isa and Genesis!
Thank you!!! You’ll love!!
I’ve been reading about Genesis having a bad formula from a few people now, and that makes me so sad! I just got mine in the mail so we’ll see if I got a bad batch as well or if that’s just the nature of this specific polish.
Crossing fingers for you!
Beautiful swatches but I’m very meh on all the colours. I haven’t been excited for Zoya since their neutral collection a while ago.
Lovely swatches! Isa looks amazing!!!
Thank you!! Yes!! Its gorge
Beautiful swatches! Such an awesome collection!
Lovely colours, but Isa is lush 🙂
I really like Genesis and Isa. I think the whole collection is wonderful!
Those are the two I’m excited about too! Isa and Aphrodite. Your swatches are amazing!!
Thank you!! You’ll love them!
These are gorgeous, but Isa and Oceane are definitely standouts to me!
Isa is my favorite too, it’s so gorgeous. Your swatches look so lovely, I am loving your nail shape.
Thank you so much!! I always dount the shape though I’m not used to it!
Gorgeous swatches! 🙂 Of these, I think Selene is my favorite, but I favor the creme collection more. 🙂
I cannot wait to play with these. They are on my weekend to do list. They all look so beautiful on you!
Thank you! Hope you love them!!
Great swatches! I actually love Genesis and don’t have any real problems with her. I mostly use it under nail art for a little extra pop!
Aphrodite is easily my next favorite.
I knew you’d love that one!!
Gorgeous swatches, I love all the blues and your nail shape is lovely !
I’m seeing a lot of these, but I really like your swatches (and I looove your nail shape!)- what is your secret for the frosty shimmers? I can’t manage without streaks/brush strokes!
Stunning swatches! Your nail shape is perfect!
These are pretty colors but Im still not sold on this collection. They all seem like something I’ve seen before. Great swatch photos here though.
Yes i can see why you would say that! Thank you!

I love Isa & Genesis <3 And your last mani 😉
The more I see Mae, the more I need it in my polish collection ! I love your mani using all of them, so creative !
Isa and Oceane are my favourites here. Very lovely swatches 🙂
