This polish landed on my doorstep via my fellow TDVer, Katie. She sent it to me along with some other fun polishes. I was in a dark nail polish mood the other day and decided to finally give Codie a try.
Zoya describes Codie as a “blackened espresso brown creme with subtle olive undertones.” That’s a pretty accurate description though against my skintone I found Codie looked more olive green than brown.
That being said, in most lights I found Codie to look basically black though slightly less harsh than straight black. You can really tell in this picture where I used Codie as a base. Looks black, right?
The formula was fine though I did need three coats to cover all the bald spots.
While I don’t dislike this polish by any means I do find it to be quite average. Especially at $8 a bottle.
Codie is available on Zoya’s website.
