In addition to their True collection, Zoya released Fleck Effects. Three holographic, flake-y top coats. They can be worn alone or over any polish of your choosing. In my Zoya True post I showed them over Bevin, Cho, and Farah. To be honest I am not big on any type of glitter, shimmer, or flakes on my finger tips. I prefer cremes, not too sure why. I will go wild on my toes but usually I like to keep it simple.
I hate showing my naked nails! When I did last month's glitter challenge I really did a number on my nails. I don't know what it is about glitter polish but I always feel the need to pick it off. That in combination with not moisturizing left me with some gnarly tips. I did my best to clean them up so hopefully my photos aren't too offensive!
I found the fleck top coats to be a little on the thick side. For my photos I show each polish with 1 coat (pinkie nail), 2 coats (ring nail), 3 coats (middle nail), and 4 coats (index nail). I would probably go with three coats if I was to wear it alone and I found one coat to be perfect over Bevin, Cho, and Farah. That is just me though, feel free to go wild :) Layering over black polish is also another option.
Chloe is a sheer coral base with duochrome mylar flakes. She has red orange to gold and gold green to blue. Very girly and would awesome over red or orange polished
Maisie is a sheer turquoise base with flakes that shift from blue to green. This is my favorite of the three and would look awesome over blues, greens, and teals.
The Fleck Effect holographic nail glazes are available now at Zoya.com. They retail for $8 each or you can purchase all three for $24.
I have finally made it to my 200th post! It feels like it took an eternity to get here. I don't really remember why I decided to number all of my posts, seems silly now when I think about it. Anyway, to celebrate reaching 200 I am giving away one set of Zoya's Fleck Effect nail glazes!
