Review & Swatches: Zoya Flame Collection Winter 2010

If you loved the sparkle in the OPI Burlesque collection, you’ll probably like the Zoya Flame collection too.  All six colors are ultra-glitter for super sparkle!  These have a foil-like quality to them too, so they’re pretty stunning.  (You may have heard of this collection also being referred to as the Fire & Ice collection, but it has been changed to Flame.)

Tiffany — pink/peach with light copper and gold foil flecks
Gloria — rose/mauve with magenta foil flecks
Crystal — icy light blue with yellow gold foil flecks
Lisa — raspberry pink/bright candy apple red with gold flakes
Sarah — dark fuchsia/ruby with sparkle
Valerie — royal purple with gold iridescence

My favorite of the collection was Gloria, it’s such a pretty rose color and the foil-like effect is very prominent, especially in direct light.

I found Valerie to be equally gorgeous, it’s got an incredibly rich royal purple tone to it that shows up much better in-person than it photographs.

Tiffany, Crystal, Lisa, and Sarah:

I was able to achieve decent opacity with two coats on all of the colors except for Tiffany and Crystal.  They will look very, very thin on the first coat—but a second coat might be enough for you.  I decided to use a thin third coat just to darken them up a little bit since they’re so pale—it’s really going to depend on your personal preference.  The glitter/foil in these shades is pretty small, so they’re not super bumpy when you feel them on the nail.  With top coat on—I can hardly feel it at all.  What do you think?  Do you love anything in Zoya Flame?
