Zoya Yana Summer 2013 Stunning Collection Swatch/Review

Happy Friday!  I'm excited for a nice relaxing Mother's Day weekend.  I'm not sure how it works in other states, but Fishing Opener usually falls on Mother's Day weekend.  Did they do that on purpose?  Maybe we need to start a Shopping Opener on Father's Day weekend?  Are ya with me?

 Switch gears...nail polish.  This is Yana from the Zoya Summer 2013 Stunning Collection.  Isn't she beautiful?
*Provided for Review
Zoya Yana 2013 Stunning Collection
Yana is described by Zoya as a "Geranium Pink".  It does look a little pink in the bottle, but I see it as more of a bright red on the nails.  I Googled it to see if others were seeing the same thing and all the swatches look different!?  These pictures are exactly what I saw in real life on my nails.  Not much pink - but I bet if I put it next to a red, the pinkier tones would probably be more visible.
I wore this for a few days and it dawned on me on day 2 what the color reminded me of.  Maraschino Cherries.  Once I figured that out, I started craving a Pineapple Updside Down Cake Martini!  We have a martini bar in town that my husband I go to on date night - which reminds me, we need another date night...

Yana's formula was nice.  It was a little thin, but all you need is two coats for max. opacity.  You can see a little iridescence in the bottle, but it doesn't really stand out on the nails - very subtle.  I enjoyed wearing a nice bright red for a change. 

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the accent nail.  This is another Jamberry Nail Shield.  This particular shield was on one of the sample sheets I received with an order.  I order through Kelly Baas

  9. Okay, this may be the first time I've seen a manicure and thought "That's sexy". I think it's the combo of the colors and the sweater. Love it!

  10. Great job capturing this color like it truly is! It reminds me of maraschino cherries, too. I wasn't too interested in this color until now... See how you are? Great Jamberry, too, you put together the prettiest looks with those things :)

  11. Pretty! I just got my first Zoya polish and although it wasn't as thick as I would have liked, the coverage was decent. Fun accent nail!

  14. I like it, it looks super pretty, especially with the black and white accent. But I'm such a nerd, I read the name and immediately thought of Doctor Who and Prof. Yana.

    But I really need at least one Zoya.

  15. Of course I read it :) Yana is a very pretty color! I'm very conflicted on if I need this color now or not after looking at all the swatches and seeing different colors like you did. I don't really need another pink, but this is quite pretty.

    1. :) It's probably not the most unique color, but it's pretty. Think cherries :)
