Sorry the pic is crooked! Anyway, the point is that I had a bunch to choose from, right? But I really wanted to try one of my new Zoya's, so I went with "Shawn":
How pretty is that? This is 2 coats with no top coat. It was super-shiny, and I love this military green color. I had to get used to the consistency...it's kind of thin, but not really (it doesn't pool at the cuticles), but the more I brushed it on, then I would get bald spots, like the polish was already drying, but it wasn't dragging or clumping. So I just stuck to 2 thin coats & it's marvelous.
So, what will NOT go with this? I figured everything would, but then I saw Zoya "Opal", an aqua-ish flakie top coat. And even though they are both "green", I think they totally do not work together.
So, after 1 coat of Opal over my lovely "Shawn" nails, here's what I got:
Well, not the best, and not the worst either. I would love to see "Opal" on a dark teal, or light aqua! It's not great on "Shawn". But I got to try my Zoyas, and I love them! Mission accomplished!
So, check off #12 and #13!
