Next up in the journey through Zoya's Sunshine Collection is Zoya Faye. This was probably the most intriguing polish in the whole collection-- colors you don't often see mixed together. Zoya describes this polish as "a bronzed mauve with purple and brown undertones flooded with bright gold sparkle. A unique gilded shade that will work in any season." It definitely has a fall feel to it because of the purple/mauve base color, but the sparkle makes it summery. In the bottle, the polish seems very purple, but sadly on the nail I feel like the purple didn't show up as well. Here is a picture from Zoya's website for reference:

I apologize for the state of my nails in the last picture-- they got dented overnight. But it's still a very pretty color.
The only downside to this polish is that I noticed notable staining of nail beds after I removed this polish. Quite honestly, I have never had such issues with staining of my nails before, and I've used a lot colors that are prone to staining, especially the blues and greens. But my nail beds had gone from a yellow/cream color to very pink/red. Yikes! I will be having an upcoming special about how to remove stains (I hope). It is possible that my nails very previously stained when I wore Kimmy or even Reva, but I only really noticed it after removing Faye.
