Zoya Reece



From the Zoya Reverie collection, I decided to wear Reece out tonight.  Zoya calls this color "gilded rose metallic" but I'm calling it purple mauve with a yellow orange shimmer.  Again, I have NO SUN, so you really can't see the beautiful duochrome that this is.  Here's a badly focused indoor picture so you can see the yellow orange shimmer.


I must admit, getting used to the Zoya brush takes a bit.  It's shorter than China Glaze but that also leaves less room for pooling in the cuticles.  I had to go back and paint just the sides of my nails since I missed those the first few times.  I probably could have gotten away with one coat with just a bit of VNL, but I went for two coats over Seche Natural and topped off with one coat of Seche Vite.


One "sun" picture - you can see a bit of the shimmer.


One shade picture - you can see more of the base color in this one


And one icky inside picture so you can really see the duochrome (!).
Zoya [official website] can be purchased on their website.

  1. That is a beautiful color, it kind of reminds me of CG Strawberry Fields.

  4. Beautiful colour. I agree with Gildedangel, when I saw the polish I automatically though of CG Strawberry Fieds

  6. It's actually way more purple than pink... Strawberry Fields is a pink base. I'm hoping for some sun soon so I can do a comparison.
