The other day I read a comment on Zoya’s Facebook page that had high praises for Neeka, Zoya. Basically, there hasn’t been a person who doesn’t like Neeka. I am not about to be that person because I, like many others absolutely LOVE it! Neeka is a nice, dark (but not really dark) purple with gold specs in it. It is really an amazing color that looks good on all skin tones. It only takes two coats for full coverage and it’s just awesome, nothing more to say! I decided to use It’s My Year by OPI on as an accent nail (on my ring fingers).

It’s My Year, is from OPI’s Miss Universe collection and it is a gorgeous maroon with gold sparkles. It is very similar to Faye, Zoya except it has a greater emphasis on the maroon than the gold. It’s My Year sparkles and looks amazing in the sun. Too bad it’s only on the 2 ring fingers. I am almost tempted (for my next manicure) to do all of my nails with It’s My Year because it is that amazing!

Without further adieu, here is Neeka, Zoya with It’s My Year, OPI on the ring fingers!

Hello friends,

My latest encounter with a Zoya polish was a very pleasant experience; then again all my Zoya experiences have been! I finally used Faye which in the bottle appears to be a burgundy with gold shimmer. I was pleasantly surprised when I painted on two coats of Faye and found out there’s more shimmer than there is the burgundy color. Faye is a very unique color and it is a color, when on my nails, I cannot stop staring at; especially in the sun.

Every time the sun hits Faye, the shimmer of the gold shines through. I’ve heard some people say they don’t likeΒ it because it’s more shimmer than color, but personally I love it!

It shimmers gold and it looks burgundy (more like a mauve) at different times and it took only two coats to create full coverage.

Here is Faye, Zoya: (a few pictures indoors, indoors with flash and outdoors as well)

Let me know what you think please!? πŸ™‚
