What I Used:
- 1 coat of Zoya Anchor Base Coat
- 2 coats of Zoya Cassedy
- 1 coat of Zoya Armor Top Coat
According to Zoya: Cassedy can best be described as a full-coverage, celestial pewter metallic.
This is the first green polished I've hated, but only because I wasn't expecting green, and most of the time it doesn't look green. In the bottle, Cassedy is a silver foil. On the nail, Cassedy is...I don't even know. She has a split personality. In most lights, it looks like an oil slick. I hated Cassedy as soon as I got it on my first finger. It is so ugly. But then the next morning I caught sight of her in the sunlight and was blown away. She's a gorgeous metallic, forest green. I wish she'd stay that way all the time. However, upon removal, I fell in love again. The green comes off first, leaving...a gorgeous silver foil! WTF, Cassedy?!
Cassedy glides on, but is a little runny. I didn't pay too much attention to the formula since I was so distracted by the color. Sorry.
Like I said, Cassedy looks like an oil slick. It's actually kind of gross to look at. Yes, I really hate this color that much. In the sun, she looks really nice and shimmery, but everywhere else? Just ew.
Cassedy suffers from raised edges upon drying, which immediately got caught in my hair and started peeling from the cuticle edge. It also chipped and peeled from the sides within a couple of days. However, tip wear was pretty minimal.
Final Score: 5.0
