Zoya Faye vs Orly Rock The World vs OPI It's My Year

Good Morning/Afternoon, little bit of a late post for me. I went super grandma Jen style as Kirsten would say and passed the heck out at like 10pm, then I didn't wake up until around 10am haha! I kind of love when I get to sleep like that, it's rare!

Today I have for you guys another comparison! A lot of similar pink/purple toned shades with gold shimmer have come out this year. They all have the same feeling but are all different enough that I'm glad to have them all. Zoya Faye (aka OPI Rally Pretty Pink) is the lightest and most pink of the bunch, it also seems to have the most golden shimmer in the shade. Orly Rock The World is the darkest and most red toned of the bunch and OPI It's My Year is a yummy purple (my favorite of the three). Formula wise, Zoya and OPI both require 3 coats where the Orly only needs 2, I definitely prefer the formula Orly has.

The first 2 pictures are in the sun and the 3rd is in the shade.

  4. Oh man, another one :O
    I already have Zoya Faye and Orly Oui (from the upcoming holiday collection) and have OPI It´s My Year on the way. But I guess I need Orly Rock The World too, since I definitely see differences and I looooovvvveeee this finish.

    Thanks for the comparison!

  7. Thanks for the comparison. I love them all, but they're similar enough that I can't really justify owning them all. Boo!

  11. Hmmmm....

    I got the OPI, passed on the Orly b/c I saw they were close, but now I kind of wish I'd gotten the Orly instead.

    And the zoya seems more golden.

    Hmmmmm.

    Thanks for the great comp!

  15. I just knew Faye looked like It's My Year. Glad I didn't purchase that OPI since I already have the other two. :)

  16. You know what's weird? My OPI It's My Year is nearly identical to Rally Pretty Pink. Not very purple and not much darker o.O

  18. Thanks for the comparison. These are talked about a lot - well the 3 were and now we have a 4th with the new release from Orly....My bottle of Rally Pink has a lot more gold in it than Faye by Zoya has. Rally Pink in the one I have is got this duo thing going on when I turn my hand it's almost all gold with lavender base while Zoya does not do that - it stays the same when I turn my hand. It's my year has the most lavender in it, but it does shift some on the turn of the hand. I don't own the Orly and won't buy it because I am already saturated and kind of not too happy I ended up with 3 polishes in 1 yr's time that are all way too similar to the point I won't wear them all. I tend to reach for Faye this summer - and not at all for Rally Pink. I think now that the days are getting into fall my Zoya Sunshine collection which Fay is a part of will be seeing less sunshine and I will reach for It's My Year more which I have only wore once thus far.

  19. Awesome colours. I love comparison pics :D

  20. Hmm I still think the Orly polish looks the best out of all three. Somehow the Zoya is so overblown - way too much gold microglitter to the degree that it takes over the base color. I haven't seen the Mineral FX's up on the Orly site yet are they out or is this a pending collection?

    The Mineral Fx Collection should be out at Sally Beauty Supply, that's where I bought my bottle :)

  22. I found that two coats of Faye plus a thin topcoat of Katherine (the sheer jelly aubergine) makes an amazingly close dupe of It's My World (which I can't find anywhere in stores, boo).
