Quick Comparison: Misa Paradise Shore & Zoya Sunshine

One of my readers left a comment on my review of the Misa Paradise Shore Collection, wondering if they were a lot like Zoya's Sunshine Collection. My first thought of a similar collection was China Glaze Summer Days, which unfortunately, I don't own to compare it to. So I did a quick nail wheel comparison of the Misa and Zoya collections, and while they are similar in finish, I wouldn't say that they are that much alike. The orange shades are the only two that are quite close in color, with Misa's being a true orange, and Zoya's being more of an apricot shade. The glitter itself is different as well--Misa has large and small glitter and is less dense, while the Zoya shades have more glitter and it's all uniform micro glitter. (click photo for larger detail)

As long as I was playing with nail wheels, here's a quick look for you at two of the shades in Orly's Pin-Up Collection, due out next month. Bubbly Bombshell is the bright violet shade, and Here Comes Trouble is the green shade. These are massive glitter concoctions!

  6. Uh oh! I have to have Bubbly Bombshell and Here Comes Trouble. Even if I didn't love the colours, the names alone would ensure I had to have them. lol
