Zoya-Dree and Finger Paints-Flecked

Because Zoya is having a nice little promotion for the new year and since I just bought that and will be buying the new spring colors soon as well I thought I'd wear my last Zoya just sitting there. And I'm so disappointed in myself that I didn't wear this sooner.

Dree is a dark olive/army green creme. Not much to describe it but it's so beautiful. I love these types of colors and it was a big trend during the fall so Zoya was right on time with this one. The formula was okay. Not amazing, but good. Two coats was all I needed and it dried well. I'd been lusting after this color the minute I saw swatches of it on blogs last, what, September I think. And yet I didn't wear it until now. I have no idea why, but I tend to be weird like that. Anyway, this is great polish. I know not everyone is a fan of greens but if you are this is definitely one that needs to be in your collection.

Since I have the Finger Paints flakies still just hanging out (I know they have an official collection name, but you all know what I'm talking about anyway) I decided to top this off with Flecked. Flecked is the green/blue flakie. With this mani I definitely see more green, but in the right light the blue comes out as well.
blurry. sorry. but i was trying to show the green and blue in the flakies.
Now, my pictures of this is crap and I know it. This is one that looks 100x better in person than in the picture. The green and the blue just wouldn't show up on my camera for some reason. But the shock of light emerald green and blue on the olive/army base is just awesome to me.
another shot. hoping yall can see more blue in this one.
With all that said, I think I like Dree as a polish on its own. The color is so unique you don't need something else with it. However, if you wanted to add some flash I would recommend Flecked. The brighter green in the flakie really does pop off the dark olive base. And that's it. If you don't have Dree make sure to pick it up during Zoya's promotion. $6.95 for two polishes? You should already be sold on it by now (unless you're overseas at which case, sorry guys. :( )


  1. I almost bought this color, but I went with Gemma instead. It is very pretty, though. I don't have many greens in my stash.

  2. I need to get Gemma. I think I might next time I make a Zoya order. It's so pretty.

    Thanks for commenting!

  3. Gemma is one of my favs...hope you got it with the promo that's going on. Love this combo...I need to wear Dree.

  4. I know you do. I remember a post you did about it. I think I'll get it (I have another Zoya account) if I have any money left over after I buy my books for school today.
