Zoya’s Fleck collection

Zoya tends to perhaps be a bit slower than other nail polish companies in jumping onto the latest “finish” trends…but when they do jump in, one can hope that the quality will be good. While Zoya calls these “holographic mylar”, they’re using the term in a way that 98% of beauty bloggers do not use the term - so I can only guess that they’re angling for SEO. These are flakie effects coats, they are not what I could call holographic by any stretch of the definition. But they are nice.

I wasn't all that interested in getting any of these polishes until I saw manicure photos where they were paired with colors from the True collection. Then I thought...okay, Nfu Oh may have the cool-iridescent-in-a-black-base flakie coat, but these from Zoya actually look good, and Zoya's quality is pretty solid straight across the board. I got two as part of the NYFW Whitney Eve promotion. This collection contained:

  • Chloe — multicolored-iridescent flakies in a sheer coral-pink base
  • Maisie — cool-iridescent flakies in a sheer turquoise base
  • Opal — cool-iridescent flakies in a sheer medium green base

Many bloggers commented that Maisie and Opal looked too similar to each other, especially over any color that wasn't very soft. Both have blue-green iridescent flakie particles, so I can see their point.
