Zoya’s Raven

Though this is called a “metallic black” on Zoya's site, I'm not seeing the metallic, nor the silver shimmer they claim is present. To me, Raven is a shiny, non-matte, solid black creme.

Like all dark-colored Zoya polishes, Raven's first coat is a bit scanty and streaky. The second coat gave me the solid, smooth opaque black color I was expecting.
