Zoya FeiFei Nail Lacquer
Zoya FeiFei Nail Lacquer

Sheer is Not the New Opaque!

Zoya FeiFei Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “medium steel blue base with heavy gold, blue, and pink iridescent metallic sparkle.” It’s a cool-toned, purpled blue with a hint of steely gray skies, then coated with blue, green, and dark pink sparkle. I don’t have anything quite like it. Zoya Skylar has one or two similarities, but it is largely different. China Glaze Skyscraper is a similar blue, but the base color is darker, and it has mostly silver sparkle.

Unfortunately, like Daul, this is supposed to be fully opaque (Zoya lists it has having an intensity of five, which is the equivalent to opaque), and it’s not. After two coats, there is still sheerness; I suspect after three coats, you would be pretty close to opaque color coverage.  The good news is the consistency isn’t thick, so three coats is doable without feeling like you have lots of polish on.  I typically get a week of wear out of Zoya’s formula with no chipping and minor tip wear.

This one wasn't as sheer as Daul, but it's a lot sheerer than Zoya describes it, which was its biggest downfall! It's a shame--the color is very interesting and complex!
