I have for you the other half of Zoya's summer collection: The Sunshine Collection. I decided to keep my general opinion on the number of coats, formula, etc until the end. All swatches were done without base coat and without topcoat.
Overall, I like this collection (but my heart still belongs with the Summertime Collection). Each color took 3 coats before I was satisfied with the amount of VNL. I know you can still see some VNL in the pictures. Here is the thing about this collection... You don't really see the VNL in person because of all the gold sparkle. The sparkle is constantly reflecting light and that helps hide the VNL. Add the fact that your hands are constantly moving and you can be confident with just 3 coats. But take a picture of your nails and its a different story. Either way, I think 3 coats is good enough. With that said, its obvious that the formula is a little sheer. Application was perfect. No complaints there. I personally feel that the gold sparkle makes this collection appropriate for the summer. What better way to honor the season of the sun than by tossing in a metric ton of gold sparkle? LOL!
What do you gals think? How do you feel about all the gold sparkle?
