Zoya Irene

I'm currently wearing China Glaze Golden Enchantment, but since I want to layer it over a few things before posting, I'll give you Zoya Irene instead. I swatched this a while back as an "extra" post to use when I didn't have a current post handy. Also, you should go enter the Polish or Perish anniversary giveaway. They've got a boatload of stuff to share, and anyone can enter! Now, on to the pretty--

Zoya Irene is a lovely, mossy green that is somewhere between a frost and a shimmer--it's not as brushstroke-y as some frosts, but it definitely does have brushstrokes, so I'm calling it a frost. Normally, this would be the kiss of death for me, as I, like many, hate brushstrokes. However, Irene is so beautiful that I can forgive its minimal brushstroke-y-ness, and it's another two-coater to boot.

The indoors picture is the most accurate, while the other two don't really show the marvelousness of Irene. You can see Zoya's color drop, which is completely color-accurate, here. Irene makes me think of crushed olive green velvet and moss and fall, and I love it. Now if it were actually fall...I'm getting tired of these summer temperatures. I just can't stand heat and humidity, especially when it's so bad that my glasses fog up every time I go outside.
