Zoya Codie

   Ready for some actual swatches and reviews again instead of press releases?  Well this post starts my reviews of the Zoya Smoke collection for Fall 2011.  
   Codie is a dark brown creme polish.  I mean DARK brown.  Like a good cup of expresso dark brown.  Hmmm, now I want more coffee.

   Anyway, Codie is very deeply pigmented.  I used 2 coats in the below photos.  But, if you do use 2 coats, make sure they are THIN coats.  Otherwise just use 1 thicker coat.  Application was great with the typical Zoya formula.  My base coat was China Glaze Strong Adhesion base.  I did not use a top coat in these photos so you can see just how shiny this polish is on its own.  A majority of Zoyas are this shiny on their own, especially the cremes.  Wear time went down a bit because of the lack of top coat though, so keep that in mind.

   Just look at that shine.  It's amazing.  This is a great fall color and would look good on a lot of different skin tones.
