Zoya Diva Ray swatch and review!

Hello dear readers!

Today we have a swatch of Zoya's Diva nail polish called Ray.
Ray is a  blackened pine green with delicate silver and green micro glitter,a dark smoky nail color with the right balance of shimmer. This photo was taken in sunlight.

And this photo is taken outdoors in shade.

Ray gave me some difficulty with application. It was streaky with the first and second coats,and although it was fully opaque in two coats,I needed top coat to smooth out the brush strokes. Other than that it is a lovely color.
