Zoya’s Claudine / Black Swan

Deeper than Zoya's Freja, but if you are not a huge fan of metallic black nail polishes and you already have Freja you may be able to safely skip Claudine. This color was originally created for Zang Toi's Imperial Russia collection for NYFW 2013.

The polish is…okay. It was a bit bubbly, which isn't something I've generally seen with Zoya polishes of any shade. (It could have been the transit. I did this manicure the day the box arrived from Cleveland. Maybe my local postalfolk were playing hackeysack with the packages again..?) The consistency was nice and thick, no ridges or flaws from my nails showed through. This may be another “it could double as a stamping polish” candidate.
