Zoya Designer swatch Evvie!

Hello dear readers.

Today I have a swatch of Zoya's Designer shade in Evvie.

Evvie was one of the collector's box nail colors from Peter Som,for NYFW 2012.


 Evvie is described as a smoky,eucalyptus creme.

 I have to say,I did have some trouble with the application on Evvie. This is actually my second attempt at swatching her. The first time was disastrous. I had alot of gloopiness,and brush strokes. Then I realized,what with me not being so accustomed to wearing cremes,that I needed to apply very thin coats,and wait for each coat to dry. I know "duh".

 Anyway, with this second application I was fairly pleased with the way it turned out. I wound up applying two coats for full coverage and the dry time was a little longer than I wanted. However,I do like the shade. I am not sure if it complements my skin tone at all,though.

Evvie is short for Evelyn.
