Manicure Monday: Zoya in Ki and Giveaway

I pulled a goody that I bought long time ago from Zoya. It feels good to reuse the nail polish.
This is Ki. Since I did a thorough review of Zoya in Aurora, I will base this on that.
Here's a closer look at the color, and the website describes it "as a complex multichromatic oil-slick shade combining silver, purple, blue and green in a shimmery metallic finish. A unique shade for a truly fascinating nail look." I agree with the description.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my perfect brush OPI, it's thinner and shorter. The width is on the thin side.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X For Sephora Base Coat, 2 coats of Zoya in Ki, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.
Here's another look from a different angle.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is on the thin side. It's not my take of brush. I tend to like medium-thick brushes like OPI. It makes it easy to paint around the cuticles or at least for me. For that reason, I had some difficulties painting around the cuticles but it wasn't as bad as others. It's probably because of the consistency of the polish. Speaking of consistency, it's in-between thin to medium. It's not too thick that I have to paint as quickly as possible. It's also not too thin that it drips everywhere. It is a great consistency and made brushing around the cuticles easier. Secondly, it went on smoothly and there was no bubbles and streaking. Third, it's a great fall/winter color. I love the multi-chrome. At certain angles, it look purple. Other times, it looks green. Lastly, I noticed shrinkage on the tip on the fourth day and then there was slight chipping on the fifth day.

Would repurchase: Yes.
