Zoya’s Rica

I almost passed on this because in the promo pics, it looked a bit too orange. Happily, when I placed an order and got the collection-plates of both Sunshine and Summertime, I could see that Rica was more of an orange-red. If Tiffany (from the Flame collection) is a peach microglitter, Rica is a poppy or persimmon.

As with almost all Zoya microglitters, three or four coats will be needed for complete opacity (or just paint two coats over a creme base coat. I might also be able to use this over a single coat of Salma, which is a nice enough polish but just a bit too orange for my preferences.

For those of you wanting something with just a touch more pink, look and see if you can find Wet n Wild's Waves of Enchantment (part of the 2011 Mermaid's Cove collection). It's a sparkle finish, not technically a microglitter; it's got more pink undertones; and as part of the Fast Dry lineup, it…well, it dries fast. smile
