A little bit of glam for my nails

Today I'd like to share swatches of Zoya's Faye and OPI's Spark de Triomphe :)

I found out about these colours as part of the OPI red and white shatter release, as it was Spark de Triomphe and Rally Pretty Pink that they paired these two shatters with. Looking at the red and white shatters I was not totally sure whether I liked them- or at least enough to buy them, but fell in love with the polishes they were paired with. Upon googling a bit more I found that Rally Pretty Pink had a dupe- this being Zoya's Faye. I also read reviews on the two polishes to decide which one I should get, and heard many people saying that whilst being basically the same colour, Zoya's Faye was opaque in 2 coats, whilst OPI's Rally Pretty Pink was 3. This pretty much sealed the deal for me- Zoya's Faye it is!

So here are my pictures of these two magnificent colours :)

As you can see from the pictures, Zoya Faye is a beautiful rich plum colour, with gold highlights that shimmer with the light. Spark de Triomphe is my favourite though as it is just the most amazing glitter - beautiful colour and I couldn't believe that it was completely opaque with one brush stroke- no base colour at all. This polish is a beautiful sparkly golden colour with what I see as flashes of silver through it :) Both of these polishes are shown with 2 coats, no top coat!

I am so glad that I purchased these polishes- couldn't be happier with them! I can definitely say that these are 2 colours that I will be wearing a lot! And don't they just go fabulously together? Why wear just one colour at once?!

Thanks for reading,

P.S Just made an order at - will definitely post some swatches up when my order arrives :D
