Chloe is a red/orange/yellow/green/blue flakie in a sheer pink base. This one has a whole rainbow going on but not in the same way as some of the others like it we've seen lately...like Finger Paints Twisted or Cult Nails Clairvoyant. The blue and green flakies are very sparse but I kind of love how they are sprinkled throughout, it's a nice pop of color in the middle of the red/orange/yellow flakies. I used 1 coat of Chloe over each of the base polishes below!
Chloe over Zoya Farah
Chloe over Zoya Lotus
Chloe over Zoya Roxy. I don't think I've EVER put flakies over glitter, I need to do it more often. This looks in-freakin-credible in real life...which is why there are 3 pictures of it!
Maisie is blue/green flakies in a sheer turquoise base. It's very similar to Finger Paints Flecked with the exception of the tinted base. The base color is sheer enough that it doesn't really affect what you are putting it over. I used 1 coat of Maisie over each of the base polishes for the photos below.
Maisie over Zoya Bevin
Maisie over Zoya Skylar. I am loving this combo and the way the shimmer in Skylar peeks through!
Maisie over Zoya Charla. In my head this combo was going to be epic, once I did it I don't really love it like I thought I would. The flakies and the base polish are pretty much the same color so you can't really see the flakies. They do give it some extra dimension and I like that, this was very mermaid-ish looking!
Maisie over Zoya Indigo, I really loved how the dark inky blue set off the flakies! It's a great alternative to layering it over black...it's not as harsh looking.
Opal is blue/green flakies in a sheer yellow toned green base. This one is also very similar to Finger Paints Flecked. I feel like Opal and Maisie are essentially the same flakies just in a different base. They flash the same colors, especially noticeable over black which is at the end of the post. I used 1 coat of Opal over each of the base polishes below.
Opal over Zoya Cho
Opal over Zoya Tru. Sorry about the weird photo, as I was walking outside to take this photo Degen decided it would be a grand time to chase Oreo (our cat) around the back yard...then Oreo decided to turn around and retaliate for the chasing. I ended up smudging my index finger while trying to break that up haha!
Opal over Zoya Ivanka...same issue here as Maisie had over Charla. It's so similar to the base polish that the flakies don't pop. I do kind of love this though!
Opal over Zoya Veruschka....the shimmer in Veruschka didn't translate into photos but in person it looked so gorgeous under the flakies! I forgot how much I loved Veruschka!
Here are all 3 of the Fleck Effect polishes over black, see what I mean about Maisie and Opal being pretty much the same? I used 1 coat of each flakie over black for the photo.
Here are all 3 also over white, you can't see the flakies too well but it shows how light the tinted bases are. Crazy how yellow Opal looks over white!
Overall I love all three, Chloe is my favorite. I feel like you can probably pass on either Opal or Maisie, you don't need both. Unless of course you
The Fleck Effect Collection is available now on Zoya.com, each polish is $8!
