Zoya Caitlin NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 22 - 2011

It’s been a long time since I fell so heavily in love with a nail polish shade.  Zoya Caitlin isn’t even a sparkler.  It doesn’t shift colour and it doesn’t glow in the dark or create funny patterns with the help of a magnet.

Zoya Caitlin is just a beautiful creme that has enough edge to make it different to all my other cremes.  I’m smiling as I write this because I think that half of you are gonna be with me on this and the rest are gonna be like “uh what?”

I won’t build it up any more…

Zoya Caitlin is the duskiest blue I own.  I don’t know how it manages to look so soft yet still be so bold.  It looks like a breath of dusty serenity and I’m completely smitten.  It was released as part of their Spring 2011 Intimates Collection as one half of a duo “french-twist” manicure.  Everywhere I look, I see this described as a purple or a violet.  I just don’t see it.  On me, it’s an out and out cob-webby, deep cornflower.

Uniquely beautiful, I have nothing bad to say about this nail polish.

Zoya Caitlin is available in the UK online at Beauty4Nails-Body priced at £7.99 – I have no personal experience with this website, I bought my bottle from eBay U.S.

    Absolutely beautiful colour, it makes a nice change to have a blue that isn’t ‘in your face’ blue. I feel a purchase coming on :) Jude xx @jadlgw

    I LOVE this polish. Not only because it’s almost my name (and i instead of a y), but also because the color is so damn perfect. I already bought a back-up and maybe will buy another ^^ it’s just the perfect color for me, a bit blue, a bit purple, a bit grey, a lot of dustiness in it .. totally my thing.
    Zoya is a nice brand, too, and “Kelly” is Caitlins big sister, I think *g* just darker and deeper.
    If I had to choose only 3 polishes out of Zoyas line, they would be Caitlin, Kelly and Jo.

    Nice application, too :) that’s a relly good photo you did there.

    Reminds me a little bit of Secret Peri-wink-le from China Glaze, which I love. I need to try Zoya polishes one of these days.

    I adore Caitlin. I purchased it recently and I keep inching it nearer to the top of my untrieds pile as I am dying to wear it soon. It’s dusky and just the right side of pastel for me.

    Gorgeous, I think I’ll probably get this one.
    Zoya also makes my favorite gray polish – you should check it out – it’s called Harley!

    I just love Zoya colours – lucky for me I already have this pretty in my collection. The whole collection (intimate?) that shade comes in is just gorgeous. Dove ended up being my fav, or was it marley, or was it….
