When it comes to past Zoya collections I feel like I’ve been picking up some great ones lately (if I do say so myself! ;), and Zoya’s Faye is no exception. Faye is a gorgeous bronze-gold shimmer set in a beautiful mauve-plum base, and the result on the nails is nothing short of brilliance!
Faye has beautiful bronzed gold sparkle that catches the light.
The base of the polish has a mauve-purple tone.
What can I say but “WOW!” to Zoya’s Faye. I purchased this beauty a few months back during one of Zoya’s promos so she has been waiting patiently to be swatched for awhile now. I just kept thinking to myself that this shade looked more fall-appropriate in the bottle, so I was putting it off. Once I tried it, however, I quickly changed my mind, and while I find this shade would be perfect year-round, I think it would look especially stunning in the summer – it almost reminds me of a golden sunsent once on the nails! Today when looking up this collection on Zoya’s site, I see I wasn’t too far off thinking this would fit with summer, as it was released as a part of six polishes in the Summer 2011 Sunshine Collection. The shades in this collection are still available on Zoya.com: Reva, Kimmy, Apple, Tanzy, Rica and Faye.
Faye is described by Zoya as: “A bronzed mauve with purple and brown undertones flooded with bright gold sparkle.” It has a metallic finish and the opacity is level 4 (1=sheer and 5= opaque), and has both warm and cool tones in it. I found this applied fully opaque with two coats for me.
Overall I am finding myself mesmerized by Faye and think it not only works for summer, but because of it’s guilded look can easily be worn all year long. It is eye-catching, unique, and elegant!
Do you have any of the polishes from the 2011 Sunshine collection? I’d love to hear your favorites.
