Zoya’s Caitlin

The slightly lighter, paler version of Zoya's Kelly. This formula is a little thicker than the polishes in the <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/zoyas_wonderful_collection/”>Wonderful</a> collection (and on the thicker end of the spectrum of all Zoya polishes that I've used), but not so thick that it would clot up. One coat gave good coverage, but was a bit uneven. 2 coats was perfect. It's got good spreadability, so even though this manicure was done on nails that really really really needed buffing - can you say ridges, folks? - the imperfections in my nails don't show up. (Except on my thumbnails, which are just weird mutant things that no amount of buffing will clean up completely.)

This color is completely matte, there's no shimmer or sparkle of any kind. It looked almost wet - very high shine - even after 30 minutes, but the polish was most definitely dry.

Lots of folks are trying this color - so if you were at all interested in Kelly but it was sold out whenever you went to buy, or you did get Kelly and want a softer variant, or if you're just kind of curious about this color-trend and think What The Hell, I'll Jump On Board…I can definitely recommend this color. Interesting spring-overcast-periwinkle-grey, and one of the better formulas I've gotten from Zoya.
