A couple weeks ago Zoya had a special on their newest collection, and I jumped on it. For $40 I received the Zoya Summer 2016 Neon Ultra Brites Collection, Zoya Purity (white creme) and Zoya Naked Manicure Glossy Seal. Not too bad of a deal.
While I did receive Zoya Purity with this collection, I swatched them without. You can use them to bump up the color a bit, but I like to swatch shades as is as much as possible. I had some trouble photographing some, as they behaved like neons for my camera and that’s not really my strong point. I will point out any discrepancies in my photos below each description.
Let’s take a look.
Cana is a bright neon fuchsia creme. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This shade is more fuchsia pink in person. My camera brightened the neon appeal but dulled the pink.
Erza is a neon red creme. This is one of my favorites in the collection. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Bisca is a neon coral pink. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This shade is much pinker and brighter in person.
Evergreen is a bright green creme. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This shade is described as an electric green neon, but I didn’t feel it was bright enough to legitimately be a neon. It is bright though.
Juvia was the hardest of the group to photograph. This is a blue leaning teal neon creme. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This shade has more green in it in person and it’s brighter. It’s a stunning shade and I just could not get it to photograph.
Mirajane is a classic bright navy creme. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Zoya Summer 2016 Neon Ultra Brites Collection Overview
All 6 of these needed 3 coats. The shades are on the sheerer side and dry down to a matte finish (like a lot of neons do) and the colors were incredibly vibrant. Adding a white base does make them pop more (I tested each on 1 nail with a white base) but even then, 3 coats were still required (1 coat of white, 2 coats of the Ultra Brights)
I went into these knowing they would require more than 2 coats, so I wasn’t disappointed. I do like the colors and the vibrancy of the shades. I do love other neons/brights Zoya has done (Hello Lola and Paz!) but the formulas are vastly different.If you aren’t one for 3 coat polishes, these probably aren’t for you. They also dry faster than other Zoya shades, so make sure to apply in decent time or you will run into issues.
Am I happy I bought them? Yes. I do like the shades and 3 coats aren’t an issue for me. I also received Purity and Glossy Seal, which would normally need to be purchased seperately, so for $40.00 I received about $82.00 worth of products. If you purchase the full collection now, Purity and Glossy Seal will not be included.

So what are your thoughts? Did you jump on this deal like I did, or did you pass? Will you be picking any of these up eventually?
