A good friend gifted me Zoya polishes long time ago.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Zoya in Aurora (bottom left), Zoya in Nikki (top left), Zoya Remove + Nail Polish Remover (left), Zoya in Pepper (third left on the bottom). and Zoya in Flynn (third left on the top). For this post, I will review the polish second left on the top.
This is Zoya in Hunter. 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 "dark sea green cream." I'm not too sure with the description but it's hunter/forest green.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, it's thinner and shorter. I would consider the width on the thin side and length on the short side.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X Prime Xcel Base Coat, 2 coats of Zoya in Hunter, 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. Even though it's thin, I didn't have a problem painting around my cuticles and sides. I did have to re-dip couple times to paint each nail. For that reason, I prefer medium to wide brush. It's just easy and quick to paint the nails. Secondly, the consistency is on the medium. I can take my time without worrying it drying while painting. I hate when it gets thicker while painting. I'm just lazy and want the quick way. With that said, it went on smoothly and there were no streaking and bubbles. Third, it's an okay color but that's personal. I like dark green but not this dark. With that said, it's great for fall/winter season. Lastly, I didn't really notice any shrinkage. I did notice chipping. It mostly chipped on the ends of the tips on the fourth day. Also the next day after painting the nails, there was one huge chip on my left index finger. It took a quarter off the polish from cutting vegetables. This has never happened to me before.

Would repurchase: Maybe.
