Another great quality polish from Zoya, I'm just not that keen on the color, which has been well described here.
What a weird color! Not saying it's a BAD color, but definitely unusual!
This is a dusty light shimmery yellow. It applies quite nicely--took two thick coats or three thin ones to eliminate VNL, not too thick/sticky nor too thin/watery. Unfortunately, it looks almost childish on my hands--pretty, but not as polished as a nude, pink, red or dramatic polish would be. I think this will be the perfect Easter color, as it reminds me almost exactly of fuzzy chicks.
Piaf is a lovely opaque muted shimmery light yellow. I usually use two coats for full coverage, but with one coat it gives a nice sheer glow with little streaking. It is appropriate for most conservative work situations and gives a nice summer change from the usual nude or light pink. I love it on my hands with short nails and it goes well with my pale NW20 coloring. I do think I would like something brighter and more yellow on my toes.
Piaf is a pretty unique color. Zoya's website describes it as "a full-coverage, fresh forsythia yellow metallic. A light, cheerful yellow that's soft and easy to wear thanks to the subtle shimmer finish." I find that it's a light (not pale) yellow with a hint of gold. Most of the swatches I've seen online make it look like a fairly bright yellow; however, in real life I found it a bit more muted than I expected -- like it had a hint of grey or beige undertone. It does have a lovely fine shimmer. This is a good color if you'd like to try a yellow nail but are intimidated by brighter yellows! Like most Zoya polishes, the formula is great and it lasts a long time with a good base coat and top coat.
