NOTD: Zoya Reece From The Reverie Collection

Above & Below: Zoya Reece shown outdoors above with no flash, and below, indoors in filtered light with no flash. Reece has more duo chrome than Lana, my NOTD yesterday does. Simply put, Reece is beautiful!
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!

  1. How nice! A pink that shines almost every shade except pink.

  2. Ooo, that is a beautiful color!!!

  3. This is a truly amazing colour.

  4. Great shade of pink. That was so sweet of your husband,getting tulips for you. Mine bought me a box of chocolate covered strawberries. I guess we must all be longing for spring,and summer!

  5. Bella Sugar~I love this one, it's just beautiful!

    Cyan~you're right about that. No obvious true pink, just every color around it!

    gildedangel~I'm definitely loving this one right now!

    CucumPear~so far, they're all pretty. But this one is standing out to me!

    Velvet~oohh, those sound yummy! Now I want fresh strawberries--but yes, I'll have to wait until June to get them around here :/

    SilhouetteScreams~I'm a lover of duo chromes too! These aren't extremely strong duo chromes, but they're still duo chromes, and very pretty at that.

  6. I just knew I was going to love your swatches of this! It's gorgeous. I think I'm going to have to pick up several from this collection, I've liked what I've seen so much. I am trying to put myself on a no buy for at least a couple of weeks. But polishes like these aren't helping!

  7. What a sweet husband. Tulips are also my favorite flowers. My Mother grew them and we used to pick out the bulbs in the catalog together. How beautiful to see them in the midst of all this snow. It snowed here again today but not badly. Love this collection. I must have them all.

  8. So pretty! The color looks great on you!
