Before Zoya Evvie came out in the NYFW 2012 Collection, I had no idea who Peter Som was. (I follow fashion off and on, and while I know some designers, I didn’t know about him.)
The reason I’m bringing him up is because Zoya originally created this custom-mixed colour especially for Peter’s runway show. What a lucky ducky!
Now, you know that I don’t wear greys all that much, but when there’s a touch of green in it, my ears shoot straight up like a rabbit during an announcement of a carrot sale. And when I hear about a carrot-cake sale, I wiggle my cotton-ball tail.

Zoya Evvie Review
This isn’t your standard concrete grey, and that’s why I like it more. It has some green undertones that you notice in certain lighting. Sure, sometimes it looks like a plain grey, but when you see it in various lighting, the green personality winks. What a flirt!
Evvie by Zoya has a creme finish that’s classy and simple. Because of this, it’s extremely easy to remove – no scrubbing required!
This polish is the perfect base for nail stamping or other nail art because it won’t compete with intricate designs.
Application & Formula
I was very impressed by the formula of Evvie by Zoya because it applied smoothly and evenly. The pigmentation was superb even with just one coat. But, of course, I used 2 coats since I never feel quite right wearing just one coat of polish…unless I use it in nail art.
Final Verdict: 7/10
I wish that all creme polishes applied as creamy and as pigmented as Evvie. It really makes painting your nails effortless.
Do you like to wear grey polishes that have green undertones, or do you like straight-up concrete-type greys? What’s your favourite Zoya polish of all time?
