All swatches are done with one coat on the pinkie, 2 coats on the ring finger, 3 coats on the middle finger, and 4 coats on the pointer finger and thumb. The base coat used was Zoya Anchor, and no top coat was used since the Fleck Effect is considered a top coat. If you’re wearing the Fleck Effect alone, 3 coats is perfect… if it’s on top of another polish, one is fine!
Chloe (pink tint with mylar green and gold fleck effect) adds fire flecks to the nail. Super beautiful over top of Cho, Farah, Lotus, and Tru.
Opal (green tint with mylar green fleck effect) flashes quite randomly with green, pink, blue… it really just depends on what you’re layering it over. Spectacular!
Maisie (blue tint with mylar green fleck effect) I found Maisie to look pretty similar to Opal over top of darker polishes such as Tru, Lotus, and Skylar. The base is different, but the flecks appear the same.
I also swatched the new Zoya TRUE Collection with the Fleck Effect Polishes:
Overall, I’m loving the Fleck Effects. I love anything flakie and beautiful. My surprise fave is Opal! When I first saw the bottles I thought Chloe would be my fave, but she’s at least a very close second. If you can only get 2 of the three, go for Chloe and Opal, but if you can – BUY THE SET! I think it’s becoming quite clear that for 2012, you can never have enough flakies!
As always, each and every Zoya color is made for women so we name them after women.
