Swatching the Fleck Effect Collection by Zoya was fun! I love flakes so much! I wanted you guys to see this collection over a color polish and over a black polish (to focus on the flecks). Just in case anyone is wondering, the black I used is China Glaze's Liquid Leather. (Liquid Leather is literally just that, black leather in liquid form. Pure black.) I figured most of you (if not all of you) would apply this over something else and not alone on the nail. Therefore, I didn't swatch them alone. The base for all 3 of these have a slight tint of color. They are obviously sheer so you will always see your nail underneath no matter how many coats you apply. I didn't apply a base coat or a topcoat. Lets get started!
Just for fun I decided to make these matte just so you can really see the flakes! I used Essie's Matte About You topcoat. I love how making these matte makes the flakes pop out even more!
Overall: This collection is loaded with flakes. I love it! One dip of the brush into the bottle is all you need for an application overloaded with flakes. You can easily move the flakes around with the brush if you don't like where they ended up on the nail. The polish you use as a base can really help the flakes look more like one color than another. Purple polish brings out the pinkish red of Chloe. Blue brings out the blueish side of Maisie. Green polish brings out more of the bright green of Opal. I love these polishes! I only have one slight complain... But note, this is the blue-lover in me speaking: I wish the blue in Maisie was more dominant than the green. How awesome would an all blue flake polish be? Amazing! Don't get me wrong though, I still love Maisie.
What do you gals think about this collection? Which will you be getting? Thoughts? Comments?
