Swatch and Review of Zoya Tickled Summer Collection

Press Sample

I have something very special to share today. I am so excited to share that Zoya has accepted me as a media partner and sent me the new Ticked and Bubbly Collection for Summer 2014! I literally squealed when I found out! I am a huge Zoya fan, I have not yet met a Zoya I didn't like and now I get to swatch for them! I am just blown away. Zoya is a great company committed to keeping harsh chemicals out of their polish. They sent me these polishes in exchange for my honest review. Now on to the polish, there are 12 colors in all and I have broken the swatches into two posts. Up today, I have the entire Tickled Collection. The Tickled collection includes all of the bright creme polishes. The Bubbly Collection includes all of the bright glitterly polishes. This may be my longest post to date, but it is worth it! There are some great colors in this collection.

First, I have Tilda, a true medium toned green. In some lights it leans a nice pea green and in some lights more of a natural green like you see on plant leaves. It is a great tone that I haven't seen in another brand. I applied two coats plus top coat here. It applied beautifully with no issues whatsoever. 

Next up is Ling. Ling is a bright medium toned blue that is pretty much flawless. I am a huge fan of blue polish and I can see myself wearing this one all summer. It looks great on my skin tone and I could see it looking good on many other types as well. The color is like a light cobalt blue or a cerulean blue. Whatever you call it, I love it. Again only two coats needed here and a flawless application. 

Rooney is a darker pink which I think every pink fan needs in their collection. It seems like it would go with everything. It is a very girly shade, again a mid-toned pink (I am sensing a theme here) which stunning and makes me want to be a pink person. I used two coats here with flawless application. 

The name on the bottle is Kirtridge, but on the website it is Kitridge, either way an interesting name. It is a bright but pale bubblegum pink. I find this one unique because most bubblegum pinks are pastel, this one is very clearly bright yet pale at the same time. How that works, I don't know, but it is a very pretty shade. I actually had to use three coats here, I found the first coat to be a tad streaky, but it evened out with the last coat. 

Wendy is a coral/salmon color. It is one of those hot colors that seems to be all the rage lately. I want this to look great on me, but my skin tone doesn't really work with this. I love the color, and I think it would be great on someone else. Two easy coats. 

Lastly, I have Rocha. She is an orange leaning red. The website calls it a red, but it is definitely an orange. This is the only one of the whole collection that seems to have a tiny bit of shimmer, but I couldn't capture it with my camera. This one was very difficult to photograph. I took two outdoor shots and two indoor shots to give you a comparison. It is a really unique rorange, yes, I just made up a word. I love this color, really, I think I am going to have to do some nail art with this soon! Again, two coats and a perfect application.

This collection is lovely, bright without being too bright or neon. I think that even though we see these colors a lot the nice touches that Zoya added make them really one of a kind. The formula on all of these was great and only needed two coats with the exception of Kirtridge, which still applied beautifully. All of these polishes are $9 and you can buy them on Zoya's website.
