Today I have another polish from last fall to show you! Zoya FeiFei from the Diva collection.
FeiFei is a multicoloured foily fleck polish that is predominantly blue, with hints of gold among others. I love this type of foily flecks.
Three coats are shown, and the formula was great.
Under Ott Lite:
One coat over black, in overcast natural light. It doesn’t really look much different over black, just, well, darker.
I compared FeiFei to Zoya Crystal, another blue with gold.
Left: FeiFei, right: Crystal.
Three coats of each polish.
Pinkie to index: Crystal, FeiFei, Crystal, FeiFei.
Crystal is a lighter, more true blue than FeiFei, and only has blue and gold flecks. The flecks are slightly bigger in Crystal as well. FeiFei is murkier in comparison due to the multi coloured flecks giving off an overall greyish look.

Breaking the silence with a texture polish! This is Nicole by OPI Cinna-man of My Dreams (what’s with all the stupid “man of my dreams” names? They already had “snow-man of my dreams” in one of the winter collections, sheesh! heheh). Anyway, this is a great polish!
It’s a sparkly multicoloured texture, with predominantly brick red and burgundy tones and little sparks that appear orange and blue in the light. Very complex and deep polish!
Shown are two coats; it has a great formula. As usual any of the photos can be clicked on to see the full size versions that show the sparkly detail of the texture!
Here it is with topcoat. I added a third coat before the topcoat because I had a bit of tip wear from already having the polish on for a while.
I did an accent thumb nail in Nicole by OPI Just Busta Mauve since they seem like such complementary polishes!
With topcoat over Cinna-man:
Busta Mauve is kind of like the foily fleck version of Cinna-man, but it does have a lot more blue and purple in it. That, and the fact that the texture “ate” my first coat of topcoat pretty well, inspired me to add OPI I Juggle Men overtop.
Love this combo!!
This amazing polish is Nicole by OPI Just Busta Mauve, which I haven’t seen for sale here in Canada (it’s supposed to be exclusive to Target stores and we don’t have those yet), but I was able to get with the help of someone having a blogsale! (Thanks again, Amy! :))
Shown are three coats plus a layer of topcoat; the polish is slightly sheer to allow the duochrome iridescent shimmer to show through.
I recommend waiting a minute between coats to avoid any balder spots near the cuticle, but other than that the formula was good!
These photos are in natural light, various degrees of shade/partial sun.
I love the finish on this polish! As you can see, there are a whole lot of colours in the flecked/foily particles: mauve, blue, copper, pink, plum, and a lovely warm golden orange colour shift at an angle. It’s the kind of polish that doesn’t really belong to just one colour family!
There are two other polishes in this release that have a similar finish, and I’ll be posting those at a later date. 😀
