Well, this is a pretty straightforward post. Zoya Codie is a dark brown creme with just a slight undertone of yellow - making it slightly warm, and therefore not completely blackened even in lower light situations. Makes sense, hopefully. Easy application, two coats shown here. I don't feature enough browns, but I do love them.
This is in a lower light situation - lately it's been overcast and rainy in North Carolina a lot, so you can tell this is not black. Sexy, I think! And look how glossy it is.
