Zoya Rikki Nail Lacquer
Zoya Rikki Nail Lacquer

Zoya Rikki Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-coverage, fern green foil metallic.” It’s a sumbdued, medium green with almost cool undertones paired with muted, golden shimmer. It has a foiled, metallic finish. China Glaze Unpredictable is metallic but also a duochrome so it flashes from green to bluish-teal. Zoya Apple is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Rikki was opaque after applying two coats of the polish. The formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it was easy to work with and apply without encountering streaking, bubbling, or the polish pooling along the free edge of the nail. It dries faster than the average polish and has a noticeble shine even when it is fully dried, but a top coat will make it sing. The metallic finish didn’t leave behind any visible brush strokes and is very reflective. I normally get a week of wear with Zoya’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

It's a complex shade of green because it looks both cool and warm at the same time! It has a reflective, highly metallic, foil-like finish that's perfect for summer.
