Zoya Crystal

Zoya Crystal is a beautiful blue and gold foil from the Flame Collection. You may also know that Crystal is an exact dupe for the hard-to-find, Euro-exclusive OPI Reflecting Pool. I had some peeling on my nails and wound up cutting them way shorter than I intended, so while I'm not thrilled about that, I am very happy with Crystal!






The formula on Crystal is fine; a little goopy here and there but still good overall. I used three coats for this mani. Unfortunately I was too lazy to use a basecoat and wound up paying for it when this stained my nails yellow pretty badly. So that's something I'll have to be mindful of next time.


Crystal reminds me of one of my favorite polishes, the increasingly rare OPI Absolutely Alice; same color combo, different finishes. Crystal also has a great shine to it and I love foils that have "freckles" of different colors in them. It makes them even more fun and interesting to look at!

  1. OOOH I love the color combination of blue with gold glitter. Or any glitter! I'm obsessed with I Have a Herring Problem by OPI right now.

    Thanks for sharing I'm gonna have to go get this one.

    1. Haha yes, I realized I followed Twinsie Tuesday by posting two more dupes in a row! This is such a pretty polish though and I agree, it's complex and interesting!
