Zoya Caitlin

   I know, I know it's Sunday.  So what am I doing posting a polish review?  Well, between un-cooperative weather and a recent promotion at work that's led to more hours, and training stress, I have fallen very far behind on the new spring collections.  So in an effort to catch up and show you lovely people all the polish goodness I have for you, I will be doing some weekend polish posts for a little while.  If I can get enough edits and swatches done I may even try to do multiple posts on some days.
   First up for you on these extra postings is Zoya Caitlin from the Intimate collection.  Caitlin is a dusty grey-purple creme.

   This is a very hot color right now.  Caitlin is one of those colors that could easily change which color, grey or purple, is more dominant depending on your skin tone.  On me I feel it leans a little more purple, and we all know how I feel about purple.  Application was nice and only took 2 coats for full opacity.  The formula felt just a little on the thin side when I was applying.  Not so thin that it became a problem, just a touch thinner than I normally expect from Zoya.

Direct Sun



   As you can see from the direct sun photo, Caitlin dries a few shades darker on the nail than the bottle color.  Click on the shade photo to enlarge it.  Now look at how shiny that is.  If you look closely enough, you can see my camera reflected in my nails.  :O 
   If you don't already have a similar color, I would say Caitlin is a must have.  She's a nice modern yet classy color that grabs your attention.  What do you ladies think?

Disclaimer:  The product(s) in this post were sent to me by the company for consideration.


  1.! Would you say this is more purple or more gray??

  2. On it feels more purple to me. Caitlin seems to be a lighter version of Kelly from last year.
