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.
