Zoya Professional Lacquer in Piaf

Zoya — Piaf (Professional Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Zoya 2013 Spring, Lovely

I’m not usually one for golds, but this Zoya called to me since I saw it more like a shimmery yellow in the bottle. Plus, it was on clearance at Winners for CA$2, so I really could not pass on it, you know?

Piaf (ZP652) is described by Zoya as a “fresh forsythia yellow metallic”. It’s a light, brightened gold with metallic shimmer, with a touch of “old” gold to it (i.e., a hint of olive). I particularly like that the shimmer isn’t all gold—there’s also a silvery shine to Piaf.

When I wore it, I felt like this:

However, it’s most likely named for French cabaret singer Édith Piaf.

It’s a gold unlike any that I currently have, although I admittedly do not own that many gold and yellow shimmer polishes. I’m digging this one a lot!

Application is nice and even, and the polish is fully opaque in two coats. The polish dries to a glossy shine.
