A good friend gifted me Zoya polishes some time ago.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Zoya in Aurora (first left on the bottom row), Zoya in Nikki (first left on the top row), Zoya Remove + Nail Polish Remover (left), Zoya in Pepper (third left on the bottom row). For this post, I will review the polish on the third left on the top row.
This is Zoya in Flynn. Since I did a thorough review of Zoya in Aurora, I will base this on that.
Here's a closer look at the color. The website describes it "as a lush camel brown nude cream. This is a real go to color for the season!" I kind of agree with the description.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compare to my favorite OPI brush, it's a lot shorter and thinner. I consider the width to be on the thin side.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X Prime Xcel Base Coat, 2 coats of Zoya in Flynn, and then topped it off with Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is on the thin side. It's not my typical brush but I actually didn't have a problem painting around my cuticles and sides. With that said and secondly, the consistency is on the medium. I actually like the texture of the polish. It didn't get clumpy while painting, as well as, I was able to take my time with painting. Sometimes I feel rushed, because the polish gets thick and it becomes harder to paint. I didn't have a problem with this polish. It went on smoothly, and there were no streaking and bubbles. Third, I'm not a big fan of brown polishes but this color doesn't look bad on my nails. It's slightly on the neutral side but great for fall season. Lastly, I noticed shrinkage on the tips on the fifth day. I'm on my seventh day and the shrinkage hasn't gotten bigger. It looks the same as the fifth day. I do see slight chipping at the sides of the tips but it's barely noticeable. I only noticed because I'm examining it close. If you quickly look at my nails, it looks like I just polished it.

Would repurchase: Maybe.
