Zoya Piaf

Hi you guys! Hope you're all hanging in there till the weekend, which is almost here. It always feels like the week days slowly crawl on by, but then the weekend is over in the blink of an eye, doesn't it?

Today, I've got one of the three shimmers from the Zoya Lovely Spring 2013 Collection to share with you. Piaf is a light sunshine yellow with tons of silver shimmers.







Piaf was originally released as part of the limited edition Zang Toi NYFW Spring 2013 trio last year. This is a tough color to describe. I think it has a bit of a mustard yellow hue to it, though without the saturation or heaviness that is usually associated with mustard yellow. The formula is a little thin and watery, so I did three for the swatches. It dries just a shade darker on the nails than what you see in the bottle. Of the six colors in the collection, this is probably the hardest color to wear. It's not terribly flattering on my skintone, but to be honest, that has never stopped me from wearing any colors before. :-)

You can find Piaf on Zoya.com for $8 for 0.5 fl oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

    1. Yea, yellows are so tricky. I feel like they and teals are probably the two most unpredictable colors on me, so I know what you mean. :-)

  5. It's actually nice to have colours in the stash that are very different from the others. You never know when you need them :)

    1. Yep, I like to branch out when I can. Sometimes I just want something a little different, so I reach for an unusual color in my stash. :-)

  6. I usually don't like yellow, but this one looks sugar frosted with that intense shimmer! I might even think about wearing it! And that's a lot to say!

  7. I thought it was a pastel - but I was clearly wrong - it's nice and interesting, but still looks a little sheer after 3 coats, I think...

    1. Yes it's still a little sheer, but I think that is the intended look. Also, pictures always magnify the sheerness; it's not obvious in person. :-)

  9. hmmm... I don't know yet. I think I need to see it a little more to decide if I love it or not...
    Something is bugging me, but I am not sure what it is...
    maybe I'll just get it and check in person ;-)

  10. Piaf is so unique! You don't see many yellow polishes and the slightly murky yet pastel tone, and the high shimmer make this one extra special. I like it and I think it looks great on you! :)
