Hi lovelies! As promised, I'm back with a super exciting post! The amazing people over at Zoya were kind enough to send me an incredible parcel packed full of goodies. Among the contents including the current Splash Collection, Calm, Sensual, and Barefoot Collections, a Naked Manicure set, and both their glossy seal topcoat and famous Remove+ remover. I think it was easily the largest nail parcel I've ever received. I am currently working my way through swatches of all of my new goodies, starting with the newest collections and working backwards. With that in mind, today I have the Summer 2020 Splash Collection to share with you. Standard to Zoya collections, there are 12 polishes, so let's get stuck in!

I also used both the Naked Manicure Glossy Seal topcoat, and the Remove+ remover while swatching these, and I have to say that I'm very impressed with both. The topcoat is easy to apply, dries quickly to a very glossy finish, and doesn't shrink my polish at all. The remover helps to remove polish quickly and has kept both my skin and nails nicely moisturised. I also didn't realise it was scented - but I really like the smell of it!
'Eclipse' is described as a glistening silver with holographic sparkles. It has a clear base so can either be built up on it's own if you like a subtler sheer look, or worn as a topper. I personally prefer it as a topper. Below is one coat with topcoat over 'Emma'.
'Jodi' is desribed as a pale ice cream pink creme. This is the perfect strawberry milkshake pink, I just love how it looks on me. Below is three coats with topcoat.
'Emma' is described as a starfish coral creme with a slight pink undertone. Below is three coats with topcoat.
'Leilani' is decribed as a glistening pink grapefruit with gold microshimmer. Below is two coats with topcoat.
'Celi' is described as a sweet cherry red with gold microshimmer. Below is two coats with topcoat.
'Greta' is described as a ripe tomato red creme. Below is two coats with topcoat.
'Kristie' is described as a deep magenta popsicle pink creme. Below is two coats with topcoat.
'Jessica' is desribed as an African violet creme. I had some very minor lighter patches on one or two of my nails so added a third coat, although it really wasn't necessary. Below is three coats with topcoat.
'Maren' is described as a vibrant nautical blue creme. Below is two coats with topcoat.
'Harbor' is described as a tropical emerald sea green creme. Below is two coats with topcoat.
'Fisher' is described as a sun-kissed seafoam with a stunning gold microshimmer. Below is three coats with topcoat.
Both this and the next polish are delicate enough that they can also be used as toppers. I layered a thin coat of 'Fisher' over 'Harbor'.
'Corinna' is described as a naked blush with a kiss of golden sheen (it has the same gold microshimmer as the others in the collection). Below is three coats with topcoat.
I layered a thin coat of 'Corinna' over 'Jodi'.
What do you think? I'm absolutely in love with this collection and how bold and saturated all of the colours are. It makes it really hard to pick a favourite! I always forget how much I love Zoya's creme formula, but I'm also really enjoying the shimmers. Some of the standouts for me are Jodi, Harbor, and Leilani. As mentioned earlier, I've also really been enjoying both the Naked Manicure Glossy Seal topcoat, and the Remove+ remover.
You can find the Splash Collection on the Zoya website here. For those of you in the UK like me, the collection is now available on the Zoya UK website here, and the Nail Polish Direct website here.
