Happy weekend, guys! Caitlin is the last polish I got from the Zoya Spring 2011 collection. I have a hard time remembering all these women’s named Zoya polishes straight. Caitlin is a really interesting color. I don’t own anything like it. I thought it was difficult to tell the actual color and tone of this color from swatches because of its tone. I think on different people’s skin tone, I couldn’t get a real sense of it.
This is Caitlin next to Kelly from Zoya’s fall 2010 collection. I like Kelly a lot, but it does dry much darker than the (already) dark color in the bottle. It’s basically black. Caitlin is sort of like, the brighter / lighter version of Kelly. In Caitlin, you really get the greyed out blue color. Caitlin is not too bright or loud. I would say it is similar to a cornmeal blue, but not exact. To me, it falls into the category of “edgy neutrals” that have a lot of grey in them.
You can clearly tell Caitlin is still blue. But it’s muted with nice depth. It dries slightly darker than the bottle. Most of the time blue polishes are so bright even when they are a dark color, that’s it’s nice that Caitlin is kind of the opposite. The formula was great. I did 3 coats for an even saturated finish. Usually with Zoya cremes though, I feel like 2 coats is all you need. The drying time on this polish was really good though to make up for the 3 coats!

I’m going to see if I can find some goodies I’ve been looking for recently today. Some Revlon glosses and other polishes to look forward to soon.
& in TV related news, I started X Files this past week. All 9 seasons are on Netflix watch instant. I love supernatural stuff. So this will keep me busy for awhile! Is anyone else into detective Scully and Mulder? And aliens and paranormal activity? Nerd alert!
