Veteran readers of Death by Polish might be thinking, “Liz is blogging about this polish..again..?” And the answer is, yes I am. This is hands down one of my favorite polishes. We’re talking top 5 territory. I love everything about it. And it’s perfect for October, fall, and even Halloween!
Shawn is to die for. When this polish came out from Zoya’s Fall 2010 collection, I had to have it immediately as green is one of my favorite colors (in general and for nails). What I love about this polish is that it is a deep, rich green. It isn’t too loud, almost a subtle green. It also has depth because of its dark hue and tinge of grey. It reminds me of wet, lush forests in an almost mythical way. It’s enchanting. And edgy since it’s a green.
The formula and application of this Zoya creme was wonderful, like almost all of their cremes. It was smooth and buttery, and a bit on the thicker side. But not in an unmanageable way. It was also very saturated. As for application tips with this polish, there are no tricks; just make sure you let all the coats dry to avoid bald spots. I ended up with a beautiful, even finish in two coats.

What do you think? Do you own Shawn? If not, would you wear it? Or is green still a no go on nails? I feel like a lot of my regular commenters have been MIA. I miss you guys! And everyone else, don’t be shy. We can talk polish or….Halloween?? It’s my favorite holiday!
