Collection: Zoya 2007 Summer, Candy
This week’s Throwback Thursday isn’t quite as old as some of the other polishes I’ve posted, but it’s going on a good eight years, and I’m thinking anything seven years and older is gonna qualify. Seven’s a magic number, dontchaknow.
Creamy (ZP405)—who names their kid Creamy, Zoya?!—is described by Zoya as a “bright yet soft banana-peel shade of yellow creme”. It definitely has that candy banana look, rather than real banana, going on.
Application was not fantastic, and I needed three coats to get full and even coverage. Yellows can be tricky, though, so three coats isn’t a deal-breaker for this light shade.
I recently picked this one up at Winners when they received a load of mostly discontinued Zoyas. Now that I’ve tried it, I’d definitely recommend Zoya Darcy (which is a touch deeper), or Yves Rocher Lemon / Citron (which is deeper still and more of a marigold, but applies like a dream), over this. You can easily skip Creamy unless you’re really into fine shades of difference in your yellow cream polishes.
Zoya Professional Lacquer retails for US$9 and is 0.5 US fl oz / 15 mL. Zoya nail polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor, and are made in the USA.
