Stash Swatch Initiative: Zoya Maisie

Hello again!!

Today we've got Zoya Maisie from the Fleck Effect Collection!

Zoya Maisie. Indoors, artificial light, no flash.
This collection is a limited run. And, unfortunately, Maisie is gone. Her sisters, Chloe and Opal, are still available, however (or at least they were when I wrote this post!). I've got Chloe coming up next week, but didn't pick up Opal because it looked so similar to Maisie. I may have to grab more of these if I can once my 'low-buy' is over (let's face it, I can't do a no-buy!!).

Maisie is packed with blue and green flakies in a very sheer blue base. The blue base is hardly noticeable on bare nails, but it makes the polish look extra pretty in the bottle! First, I have this over yesterday's Ibiza swatch, which is my favorite way to wear Maisie so far. They're perfect for one another. This is one coat of Maisie over Ibiza plus topcoat:

While this polish is definitely meant to be worn as a topcoat over something else, I did want to show it over bare nails, so you can get an idea of the sheerness of the base. Here is Maisie over my bare nails. Pinkie has one coat, ring has two, middle has three, and index finger has four coats.

As I've said before: I bought my bottle from Zoya's website. They offer a lot of great deals, especially if you're plugged into their social networking, so like them on Facebook! They also offer deals to their existing customers (those who have an account set up at their website) on occasion. If you don't have an account and want one, you're welcome to use this link to make a new account. It's my "Share the Love" link, which if you do sign up by using it, I'll get points to use towards more deals on polish and, as a first time customer, you'll get a free bottle of polish when you order! Awesome! My link takes you to the seasonal collections page; you can create a new account by using the link at the top of that page that says "Create An Account". Once your account is set up, if you go to "My Account" then click "My Coupon Codes" you'll see the code for a free bottle of polish. I believe you have to order more items to use it, so it's not a total freebie.
Here's a comparison--one coat of Maisie over Ibiza (left) and three coats of Maisie alone (right):

I'm away on vacation, but my blog is not! I might not be able to respond to comments or emails right away, but posts will continue! So... More soon!!! ^_^
