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.

  1. Haven’t tried this one yet, and giddy up, looks just as amazing as the rest of the collection. Interesting green. I think I can actually pull this one off without making my hands looking sallow. Cool beans!

  2. Your nails look beautiful! And your blog is amazing, tbh and I’m now following!

  3. Love this color! It reminds me a bit of Etta by Julep, but this shade is much more olive. Etta is more of a soft lime.

  4. Oh wow, this is absolutely gorgeous!

  5. This is my name, but i’m really just not crazy over the colour haha

      My name too, not the same spelling (“Rikki” is the German version), but really? How did I NOT know this existed? As if I won’t be buying this simply for when asked what color I’m wearing I can say “oh, it’s Rikki….” :D

    Zoya is my absolute #1 favorite nail polish brand. I almost always have good luck and they have a huge amount of colors and finishes on their website. :)
