Before I take off for Disney, I wanted to post the Zoya Blogger Collection because I wasn't sure if it would still be available by the time I got back.
The Zoya Blogger Collection by Birchbox consists of three shades created by bloggers - Belle, Coraline, and Kate.
What the Birchbox website has to say about the Zoya Blogger Collection:
When it comes to spotting the trends, there’s no better source than top beauty bloggers. We teamed up with Zoya to help these talented ladies turn their creativity into these exclusive limited edition nail polish shades. First, each blogger made a mood board capturing her favorite spring/summer colors. Next, we asked our Facebook fans to vote for the top three boards, which the polish experts at Zoya used to custom-design this stunning trio. Kate is a pinkish grapefruit that comes courtesy of The Small Things. Eleventh Gorgeous created Coraline, a warm juicy tangerine. Capitol Hill Style is the force behind Belle, a coppery pink which features microscopic bits of iridescent glitter.
How it Works
Each of these limited edition polishes is made with a sheer, buildable jelly formula, which can be worn sheer or layered to create a more vibrant effect. As with all Zoya polishes, they’re free of harmful ingredients like toluene, formaldehyde, DBP, and camphor and last about 50 percent longer than other brands.
How to Use
Start with a basecoat, and wait for it to dry. Next, apply one coat of the jelly polish for a sheer wash of color, or layer on an additional coat for more opaque effects. Finish with a clear top coat.

Belle is such a fun and different shade! A sheer jelly base with tons of copper, fuchsia, and gold flecks. I didn't have any sun as I was photographing these, but the picture taken outside shows off the glitters pretty well. Three coats were used in the swatch photos. I also applied one coat of this shade on my ring finger over top of the other two manis.
Coraline is a loud tangerine jelly. Though sheer, it's a gorgeous and summery shade. Perfect for a hot night or lounging pool side! I adore the name too! Three coats were used in the swatch photo.
Kate is a rosy grapefruit jelly. This shade is sheer like Coraline, but still a great color for Summer! Three coats were used in the swatch photo.
This set is completely juicy and on trend. Belle layers fabulously over the other two, and you could probably do a great ombre mani (see below, it reminds me of ice cream!) with the three. A must have!
Full disclosure - I used Birchbox points to purchase this set of polishes, so I got them for free. This obviously doesn't impact my review in any way, but I wanted to make it known.
