Zoya Apple

The finale in the Zoya 2001 Summer Collection Sunshine and Summertime is Apple, the "luminous yellow-toned apple green packed with gold metallic sparkle. A dimensional green that's clean and bright."  This was probably my least favorite because greens and I have issues.  I'm always scared that I'll end up with yellow nails because of the yellow in the nail polish (it's only happened once), but thankfully it didn't happen with Apple.  This was more of a shimmer for me as well instead of a glass fleck/metallic sparkle.  I'm still really loving this finish but the base color just wasn't my cup of tea.

I used a base of Zoya Get Even, 2 coats of Apple and a top of Zoya Armor.  Formula was smooth and even.

As you can see in the sun, it is like a cross between a Granny Smith apple and a watermelon rind...  Not too light, not too dark.  This reminds me a bit of the plastic grass you'd see in Easter baskets.

Definitely love this color more in the shade.  The pigmentation on my middle finger is a little bit lighter than I like - I should have maybe done a third coat of polish.

Finally indoors with the flash you can see that this color isn't as opaque as I'd like.  The middle finger shows balding and some visible nail line underneath.  Not a huge issue since it's so lovely in the shade and very pretty in the sun.  I do still feel that this collection is one that you really should purchase.  :]
