Skinny Dipping (With Friends): Zoya Flynn

Okay, this post is MEGA late. Like, a week late. I know. I'm sorry. But since this is going to be my last Skinny Dipping post of 2013 (December = ALL CHRISTMAS, ALL THE TIME), I wanted to make sure it would be a good one. This meant I had to choose something really awesome.

Flynn is pre-eeeetty awesome.

Dr. Carter Noah Wyle, I luv u 4evr.

They'll never get his nose right. (But his smolder is just fine.)



I got jokes! (Sometimes.) ANYWAY:

Three coats with NYC Grand Central Station.

Like I said. Awesome.

When the Zoya Cashmere swatches first came out, I didn't think I'd want any of them. When I saw the collection at Ulta in September? early October?, I still wasn't feeling them. But then in mid-October, something happened and I kept wondering whether Flynn would look good on me. Good thing I caved during a surprise Zoya B2G1 at Ulta! I don't think this is a color that everyone is going to be able to pull off, but if you even remotely think you might be able to, TRY IT. You might be pleasantly surprised. :) It's very elegant ... it reminds me of leather. Or perhaps a wool camel-colored coat. You know, cozy. (Note: This is not a even close to Essie Case Study! The Essie is WAY more yellow. But it's sort of in the same vein.)

This one had classic Zoya creme formula -- perfect, perhaps a little gummy? (I only get this with Zoyas and RBLs) -- and dried really quickly with Grand Central Station. I usually use Cult Nails Wicked Fast with my Zoyas, but I didn't feel like opening up a new bottle, and GCS was on my headboard, which is how I wound up using GCS instead. I only wore this for one day, but it's definitely getting broken out again!

Not a bad way to end a year of blogging nude shades, if I do say so myself! Thanks for looking at them and indulging me. :) I'm not sure if Anna is planning to blog some nudes solo in December, but I'll be back at it in January. In the meantime, visit BLP for her November pick.


  1. You make all the polishes look good! I had no interest in all in the Cashmeres...I might consider this one now.

    I don't have time for neutrals, too many purples to get through! :D

    (Current mani is aengland lady of the lake)

    1. Aww, thank you! I bet if it had an amazing purple, you'd be all in. ;)

      (Purple is a neutral outside of my nail wardrobe tbh)

    2. heheh, true true, it did seem to be missing a nice purple ;P

  2. This is a pretty Zoya polish :) I will visit Anna to see!

    1. Thanks! I think it would look fab on you.

    I always think of him when I see this polish. I'm glad you did too.
    (Can you tell I'm behind on my blog reading...again? :P)

    1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA IKR? There really are no words. I'm really glad you noticed, though. Sometimes I worry that I'll be the one laughing to myself in my lonely corner of the internet ... :-P
