Oh Flakies, why can't I resist you? I was doing so well, managed to go a week without buying any polish and what do you do? You show up in my Trade Secrets in your Zoya set and whisper in my ear that I've been good, there are only three of us, it'll be fiiiiiiiine. Just pick me up, pay for me and all will be well. DAMN YOU AND YOUR SIREN SONG!
Anyway, let's take a look at the three new flakie polishes from the Zoya Fleck Effect Collection - the red flakie Chloe, the blue Maisie and the green Opal. Formula and application was pretty standard for these kinds of polishes, each you see here is two coats. These flakies are nice but the only real standout in this collection is Chloe. Maisie and Opal are almost exactly the same, to the point where I can't really remember which is which in the pictures below. Chloe, however, is different even to the Finger Paints flakies, being mostly red with a little green and blue mixed in. All these pictures are over two coats of Urban Outfitters Winter Berry, which happens to be a great green-blue-purple duochrome.

|All three together! The best, in my opinion.|
See my Ludurana review, Finger Paints Special Effects and Shine of the Times reviews for comparison.
See, I went the exact opposite way! I got the blue one since my only other flakie is Shine of the Times, and that one appears very orangy-reddish to me. So I passed on the pink and was torn between the blue and green. I got the blue... but I think I'll be back for the two others anyway ;) I need more Zoya points!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures though, as always. It's really nice to see all three in action together for a side by side comparison.
