Below: Shown under an Ott light, you can see the true base color. It's a muted fuchsia, with shades of rose and perhaps even a bit of mauve.

Below: I know my polish doesn't match the tulips my husband gave me for Valentine's Day, but I had to include them in my pictures because they're so beautiful. How I long for warmer weather when more of my pictures can have floral backgrounds!
I hope you're all enjoying Valentine's Day! This isn't a day I generally do too much about, other than for our daughter's benefit, but I thought Zoya's Reece would be an appropriate shade to wear for the occasion. My husband surprised me with flowers and a card, probably to make me look bad~ha-ha! For those of you who have followed me for a while, you know how much I love flowers and gardening, so in the midst of my winter of discontent, these flowers make me very happy. Tulips have always been my favorite, so yes, he is a good husband!
On to the Reece review--I love this almost as much as my flowers. Yesterday I showed you the first of the Reverie collection, Lana, which for an orange (not my favorite), I liked very much. Reece moves up to the 'love at first site' category. Two coats, great coverage, and a beautiful shade of gold infused light fuchsia or berry. Zoya describes it as a gilded rose metallic, which yes, it is. But it's so much more than that. The finish is a shimmer, but it does have some good metallic tendencies, as in a little bit of a foil look, extreme shine, but none of the brush strokes you tend to get with a metallic. I certainly wouldn't classify it as a true metallic, but it does have some properties of a metallic. Reece has more of a duo chrome look than Lana did, flashing lots of gold, and a bit of pale green, along with various shades of pink, from dark to light. Reece has a lot going on, and it's all good!
