Zoya Caitlin - Rebooted!

Nails I Love

ZOYA – Caitlin

Hi Goddesses

Weirdly, I get loads of hits on my blog from people Googling for Zoya images.  More than any other brand.  And it really disappoints me that 2 of my favourite Zoyas have sucky posts because they were amongst the first that I did.

So, I’m gonna sort that out, and Caitlin is the first polish to get rebooted (don’t worry, it didn’t hurt).

Caitlin is from Zoya’s 2011 INTIMATE Collection (all 6 are utterly fabulous).  It’s pretty much the perfect dark lilac because of its smokiness, and lacks the brightness of OPI’s Planks A Lot.  This is very similar to Kelly in that it looks like a plume of coloured smoke (this one hued with lilac; Kelly hued with purple) and again, looks darker on than it does in the bottle.

Caitlin is a smoky lilac on top of a medium grey base and she is just super elegant and refined.   There’s an aloofness about her that I find really appealing, and if she were a woman, she would definitely be rocking a twinset and pearls.

you're right, nails of equal length would have TOTALLY unbalanced this photo

It’s a shame, because since her birth, Caitlin has been duped to death and spawned so many other clones.  Right now, you can buy dozens of similar shades to this, and that really does dampen how special she is.  I don’t care how many other greylacs you have, CAITLIN is the one you need.  She is the original, and therefore the best.

Personally, considering they already had Caitlin and Kelly, I really don’t know why Zoya bothered to do Smoke & Mirrors (beautiful though those polishes are).  These 2 would have fitted into that collection perfectly.

So to summarise –
  • Caitlin = gorgeous, to die for, perfect
  • Sophisticated grey with purple/lilac tones
  • Beautifully cold and smokey
  • The perfect combination of subtlety and pigment.

A true beauty – enjoy xx J

nooooo, the thumb isn't hiding anythiiiiiing

Finally, me and Konad the Barbarian have been trying to forge a relationship.  So far, he’s a typical bloke, great at first (see thumb) and then disappointing, patchy and unreliable lol.  We are currently not on speaking terms.
