Mani: [Caitlin]

The Polish:   Zoya "Caitlin" from the Intimates Collection

Number of coats:   base coat + 2 coats "Caitlin" + 1 coat Sally Hansen "Strobe Light" + Seche Vite topcoat

Color description from Zoya website:   "Zoya Nail Polish in Caitlin can be best described as: Smoky purple-tinged medium gray with smooth, opaque creme finish. Sultry, mysterious and impossibly chic, a shade that will have everyone intrigued."

My take on the polish:   I would call this a cool-toned medium purple color with a tinge of gray to it (i.e. more purple than gray). Creme finish that is opaque with 1 coat if applied very carefully, but I applied 2 quick coats. I don't recall having problems with streaking or other difficulties in the application process, although the brush on Zoya polishes aren't my favorite. I'll also add that the color dries a it darker than it appears in the bottle.
