Zoya FeiFei Mani


Today I have my second Zoya polish to show...even though there are bunches of swatches online already of this polish.  Oh well.  Just consider this one more look at the polish.  I picked this pretty up at a discounted price from the local beauty supply store that I've mentioned before - as of right now, I have not ordered directly from Zoya...

For my nails, here's what I did:
  • Base coat of 
  • 3 coats of Zoya FeiFei
  • Quick Dry top coat (Sally Hansen Diamond Flash)

FeiFei is from the 2012 Diva Collection for Fall/Winter.  This is what Zoya's website has to say:
Zoya nail polish in FeiFei can be best described as: A medium steel blue base with heavy gold, blue and pink iridescent metallic sparkle. A truly unique sparkling iridescent blue that adds a magical look to the nails.

Color Family Blue, Gold

Color Finish Metallic Micro Glitter

Color Intensity 5 ( 1=Sheer - 5=Opaque )

Color Tone Cool

FeiFei is definitely cool toned, which goes well with the coolness I have in my skintone.  I love how it has more than one color of shimmery sparkles that make it all the more interesting to look at and wear.

I'm not sure how they decide the color intensity since I did end up with 3 coats to make it completely opaque - at 2 coats I felt I could still see a little nail line under the lamp light.  This polish did seem to be a little bit slower drying than when I used Indigo so I felt that a quick dry top coat was a definite must.  So far, the Zoyas that I've tried have both required little to no clean up since the brushes are quite nice and the polish is easy to control.

Both FeiFei and Indigo are colors that I see myself reaching for time and again, especially with Fall and Winter quickly approaching.  These 2 are both ones that I find myself wanting to play with to see if I can make already pretty colors even more so.

Have you picked up any new Zoyas from the Designer, Diva & Gloss Fall/Winter collections?  How about other brands' fall collections?
