Zoya Nail Polish in Yara

If you have enough polish, you'll know that loads of shades wind up being very, very similar. But this shade? I actually don't have anything else quite like this. Considering all of the polishes I have, that's pretty awesome!

Some notes, again, on the formula: this is my third Zoya polish, and it's the third in a row that was a lovely just-right consistency. It dried with reasonable speed, and wasn't difficult to work with or fussy in any way. This shade was nearly opaque in a single coat, but I needed a second coat to really perfect it.

The color is a greyed green that looks almost khaki with gold shimmer. I really like this sort of green shade; it sort of edges on bright, but also doesn't. It's hard to explain, but it's not quite a bright green, yet I can imagine wearing this into some professional work environments because it edges on dull and neutral, as well.

The wear for this was great. All week with a proper top coat, and barely any tip wear at all.

The Good:
  • I like the way this color is. It's bright enough to feel like a bright color, but greyed down to not be too attention grabbing.
  • Non-fussy formula makes for easy application.
  • Reasonably quick dry-down.
  • Good consistency. Neither too thin nor too thick for me.
  • Opaque in just two coats. 
  • Good wear: a whole week with a top coat.
The Bad:
Nothing here.

The Neutral:
Nothing here!

Overall, I'm really happy with this color. I like that it's a neutral-ish green that's still sparkly enough to be interesting. The formula was spot on, so if you like this shade as much as I do, I definitely recommend it.

This is currently $8.00 from Zoya.
