I finally have pictures of Zoya Cynthia from the Fall 2011 Smoke and Mirrors collection!!! I used this under my OPI Man of La Mancha mani the other day, but it really deserves it's own post. Zoya describes Cynthia as a "smoky Prussian blue creme" and I completely agree. There is a definite smoky look to this polish that is very cool.
The smoky feel sets Cynthia apart from other deep blue cremes I own. I am a total sucker for colors like this. They look really bold against my super pale skin and I love it! I hate reading those magazine articles where the famous manicurist tells pale people not to wear colors like this. That's ridiculous!! Vampy colors look stunning on pale and dark skin alike!!!
The formula on this beauty was good. This is two coats and it was nice and opaque at two coats. The first coat looked a bit streaky, but no worries, as the second coat smoothed it right out! All in all, an excellent fall/winter polish. I wore it as a full mani right after taking these pictures!!
Zoya Cynthia is available now on Zoya.com.
