Cola is a discontinued polish from Zoya and can be best described as a warm light brown cream with strong terracotta undertones.

This is a really deep terracotta colour, I#d say more like a Doctor Pepper colour rather than a cola colour, I#d say coca cola is an almost black brown.

This had a bit of a tricky formula, for want of a better word it was kinda sticky in that if I over worked it, it was creating streaks and sticking to itself.  It didnt run or pool though and was opaque in two coats.  You can see what I mean on my little finger, looks weird, I did the coat then ran my brush over it again and kinda dragged it. I didnt fix it as I want you to see what a polish does, its also why I dont wear top coat so you can see the actual finish of a polish. I also dont use topcoat on my swatches which is why it looks dull and matte like, but I think this was because I didnt do enough coats, the sticks I have can make a polish appear to dry matte.


  1. It looks okay, I could wear it :-)

    I rarely use a top coat, I cannot remember the last time I did! :-|

    1. Yeah the only time I topcoat is over stamping, I wear polish for such a short time theres no point to wasting it.
