Zoya Evvie (Swatches & Review)

Brand: Zoya
Color: Evvie
Collection: Designer Fall 2012 (NYFW)

This is one of my favorite Fall/Winter colors.  It is a nice muted take on deep green, almost reminiscent of the shade of green used in army fatigues.  Zoya describes Carter as a “dark smoky grey cream with strong teal green undertones”.  This shade was custom-mixed for designer Peter Som’s runway shows during New York Fashion Week.  Zoya polishes are Big 5-Free (Toulene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Dibutyl Phthalate, Camphor).

Product/Formula

The formula on this was very good.  It is a simple creme and the formula was not too thick or too thin, which can happen with creme shades.

Application

I applied 2 coats for full coverage.  The application was very good, was not streaky, and evened out well on the nail.

Color

This color is deep yet has a grey overcast to it.  It is truly a lovely and unique shade.  This shade looks slightly darker on the nail than in the bottle, but it does not lessen the appeal of the polish.  It is cool toned, but would work with all undertones.

Wear

This polish wore very well.  After 5 days of wear I only had minor tip wear.   Zoya states that you can get up to 14 days of wear if you follow their instructions and use their base and top coats.  I used a different base and top coat and still had pretty good wear.

Ingredients: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Ste[a]r[al]konium Hectroite, Acrylates Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer

As aforementioned, this product does not contain toulene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, or camphor.  Some of the ingredients it contains are toxic to the lungs and nervous system, which is not at all surprising considering it is nail polish.  It is best to polish nails in a well ventilated area and do not inhale over an open bottle.

This polish is a keeper and a Nature’s Pulchritude All-Star.  Not only is it a great product, but it does not contain any of the common chemicals used in nail polish that are known to be toxic!
