Swatch & Review: Zoya Fleck Effect Spring 2012

I love fleck glitter polishes as I'm sure you've already noticed, so when I heard Zoya was releasing some this Spring I nearly died! Here they are...

Zoya Fleck Effect Collection
Zoya Fleck Effect Collection (left to right) - Maisie, Opal, Chloe

The Fleck Effect glazes are a combination of tinted bases with mylar glitter--so lovely!

The Polishes
Here's my review of each of the Fleck Effect glazes:

Maisie
Color description - Sheer blue base with blue-green flecks

Effect - This fleck glitter glaze results in a super subtle blue tint and a splash of fiery green reflects. While it's pretty on it's own, it is pretty subtle. When combined with polishes (especially dark ones) it is much more obvious.     

Maisie - Doesn't this remind you of tropical water? It makes me miss Hawaii :(

Maisie on its own - 3 coats

Maisie Over Other Polishes
As Fleck Effects were created to complement the True Collection (though they can absolutely be paired with other colors), I wanted to show you what Maisie looks like over some of the True Collection polishes. So pretty! 
Left to Right - Maisie over Farah, Bevin, Skylar, Tru.

Opal
Color description - Sheer green base with green-blue reflects.

Effect - Opal results in a slight, slight green tint with gorgeous bursts of reflective green. While this is also pretty on its own, it is even more brilliant over other colors (especially dark ones). I also want to note, it is nearly identical to Maisie. I was really hoping there would be a significant difference, but aside from the very subtle tint of their bases, they're identical.

I swear I get such a thrill every time I take pictures of fleck glitter polishes!

Opal on its own - 3 coats

Opal Over Other Polishes
Again, I wanted to show you Opal over some of the True Collection polishes.
Gorgeous, right? But here you can see how similar Opal looks to Maisie over other polishes.

Chloe
Color description - Sheer pink base with multicolored reflective flecks.

Effect - Chloe results in a slight pink tint and an explosion of fiery colors. This is definitely not identical to the other 2. It's super pretty!

Chloe is crazy pretty!!!

Cloe on its own - 3 coats

Chloe Over Other Polishes
I really wanted to show you how pretty Chloe is over other polishes--can't wait to put it over a super dark polish later on, too!
Believe it or note, Chloe is even more brilliant in person. Sorry for the slight mess around my cuticle with Bevin, I was getting a little tired by the time I swatched this last round! ;)
  
Price
Zoya Fleck Effect glazes are priced at $8 retail. This is definitely cheaper than many other fleckies out there!

Where to Buy
You can purchase the Fleck Effect polishes on Zoya's website 

Final Thoughts
I really like these fleck glitter polishes, but I'm sure you've already guessed that! The only thing I will say is that Opal and Maisie are almost identical over other polishes, so you may want to take this into consideration. I think they look lovely over the Zoya True Collection and I was surprised to see how much I liked each of these over Farah! Farah on its own isn't my favorite color from the True Collection, but paired with any one of these quickly becomes a delicate, fun mani in my opinion--love!

What do you think of Zoya Fleck Effect glazes?
