Zoya Island Fun Nail Art

Tuesday, May 19, 2015Nail A College Drop Out



Press Sample
Two weeks ago Zoya's new summer collections became available for purchase. So what do I have today? An easy manicure feature the all cremés of the Island Fun collection.


I started with a white base color and simply sponged the colors from the Island Fun collection on my nails until the above opacity was reached.
Then of course I mattified it. Why? Because, why not?

Talia | Cecilia | Jace
Demetria | Nana | Serenity


After looking at these nails they remind me of my Do You Like... Nails? mani that was apart of Art Dealer Chic Week a few years back.

I'm a big fan of Zoya's summer collections, especially the cremés. So if you wanna see the acid wash rainbow look I created with last year's collection click HERE.

And if you wanna see just how Tickled & Island Fun match up you can view the pic below.


Ok, enough reminiscing, now let's get back to the collection/mani at hand. (See what I did there? At hand. It's okay, I know my jokes are corny.)


If I had to choose a favorite, I'd be torn between Cecelia, Talia, and Serenity. Wouldn't they make an amazing water marble? You know, if I was actually good at them? LOL

If you missed the press release you can still read it HERE.
UPDATE: Click HERE for Paradise Sun nail art.

These richly pigmented cremés are available for $9 each or $54 for the sampler on Zoya.com.

On a separate note, my Instagram account was hacked and deleted. You can follow my new account @DropOutNails.

  19. i think last year's collex wouldve been perfect if it included Cecilia and Serenity instead of two of the three shades of pink.

  28. I don't know why people do things like that. It's annoying and can be frustrating. Yes I saw and I found you too! Awe thank you. I get some comments about how people hate my nails lol. Can't please everyone.

  29. I LOVE long nails. The only reason I currently don't have them is because they broke in a dressing room door handle. =(

  32. I keep staring at these wondering what type of nail art I want to do with them, haha!! I definitely want to do a watermarble and see how well they fare with that. I love this look you did. Matte top coat makes anything better, it really does

  33. Thanks Dani. I'm still stuck on what type of nail art to do with the Paradise Sun collex.
