Zoya Robyn

Hey look!  It's another creme from the Zoya Flash Summer 2010 Collection!  That's one problem with releasing 12 colors, and me not making ONE big post with the entire 12.  First off, I'm just not that awesome yet, secondly I like dedicating my time to each color individually.  I have about 82 bottles here to review, not to mention all those that I already own and haven't swatched.  I have lots to write about, hah!

Robyn was my problem child.  Zoya lists it as a "perfect turquoise cream."  Yes, PERFECT.  I guess that automatically means "problem" for me.  First off, the color was thick as the others were but this one pooled everywhere.  I had to use my Remove+ to get the pooling under control as it slid all over the place.  Then I ended up smudging (big time) my ring finger as soon as I finished my pictures.  Granted, that was my fault, but it still irritated me.  I used a base coat of Zoya Anchor, 2 coats of Robyn and a coat of Zoya Armor.  While this color looks neon, it doesn't dry matte, so it's not really a neon but it was super BRIGHT.

I was thinking it would be more like a "Robyn Egg Blue" with a bit more of a white tone, but nope, this is definitely a blue.  It's not electric, but I don't really see it as that turquoise either.  My mom used to wear tons of turquoise but hers always had the black and bit of green running through the stones (not highly polished), so that's why my view may be a little skewed.  Gotta say, I love how shiny this is - looks like I added lens flare to my nails, but I swear, it's all natural baby.  ^_^  Also, I don't know what's up with the weird wolf head looking thing in the top left hand corner of my bottle.  Strange.

Even though this color was a pain in the you know what, it is a very nice color - I'm sure it would be great layered, with Konad, or just by itself.  I'm a little freaked out about my long nails, but I think I could pull on this color with STYLE.  Yes, I said it.
