Zoya Faye wants some sunshine! (and some giveaways)

Hey all~

It's almost the weekend again.  Are the days flying by or what?  Yesterday I painted my nails with Zoya Faye.  It's been pretty sunny out lately, so I thought I'd take some pics after class today.  I noticed that Zoya Rica's base color was more visible in sunlight, and the shimmer looked like fire.  So I kind of regretted not getting pics of her in sunlight.  But now I know why it's called the Sunshine collection!  As luck would have it, there was not a hint of sun today.  So here are my pics of Faye indoors.  Not very happy with them, but oh well.  Hopefully, there will more sunny days soon.

Faye is a red toned purple base with a complex array of shimmers: copper, gold, orange, green, red.  The coppery gold shimmer is more dominant, but within it you can see some orange, green, and red.  I used 3 coats and application was good.  As you can see, you can see my tips.  I know I made sure to cover them, so I think that's result of shrinkage from Seche Vite. Boo :(  Drying time was a little long too.  I don't know if it was because I used 3 coats, but I accidentally crinkled one of my fingers about an hour after application.  It was like the top was dry but the inside was not.  The good thing is I was able to smooth it out, and it looked like it never happened.  I think this polish also chips a bit easily.  I don't know if that's because of the shrinkage or not.  Overall, I really love this as a color.  It's very complex and unique.

Hopefully, I'll be able to get some better pics of Faye once the sun decides to come back out again. ^ ^
