Polish: Zoya Suvi

Zoya, sometimes you can be so cruel...

This is an example of what happens when a polish takes 3 coats to become totally opaque and uniform, then you add a fast dry top coat. You sit for an hour, and still get smudges when you go to put the laundry away. See how messy my nails are???

The Color: Beautiful forest green. Better than "Follow the yellow brick road" green. I'm tempted to say I like it better than Zulu. It's a black based green. If you put on a thin coat you'll see it. If you don't cover until it's opaque you'll get spots where you see black with your nail showing through - and that isn't attractive.

The Formula: 3 coats! Why are you doing this to me? This is definitely a case where the polish could be thicker or a little more concentrated, and I would have far fewer complaints.

The Bottom Line: Those of you who love greens probably already have this. Those of you who do not - get it only if you can tolerate the time it takes to dry.
