Good morning!! Do you ever look at a color in photos, then see it in real life and be a little surprised, not because the photos aren't color accurate, but because your mind was playing tricks on you? The first swatches of Zoya Josie I saw were pretty much like mine, a light to medium blue-leaning green creme, but my mind wanted to see this, or even this, and despite it being another Steely Dan named color, I wasn't sure how much I needed another green creme in my life.
In the end, I decided it was highly necessary for me to have a polish named Josie in my collection (she's the raw flame, the live wire; she prays like a Roman with her eyes on fire... with apologies to Walter Becker and Donald Fagen).
Josie is a beautifully unique green creme. It's a true jade green, lighter in color and reminiscent of the beautiful carving stone and maybe a little of those cool Fire King glassware pieces that are so expensive right now.
Application was slightly difficult for me. For some reason, I've always had some trouble with Zoya cremes-- the formula's a little on the thin side, it's a little hard to control, the brush deposits a little too much polish on my nail, even after I wipe the excess. Still, the color is wonderful and is perfectly streak free in two coats.
Zoya Josie is part of this summer's Stunning collection of cremes and is available on Zoya's website or your local Ulta.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day! ♥
