This is Zoya Carly from the Summer 2012 Collection.

Zoya describes Carly as a "very rich, bold, red-toned dark purple with iridescent red and silver metallic shimmer and a dense foil finish." I would probably call it a burgundy/wine foil...that's probably why Zoya wouldn't hire me to describe their polishes:)
Dense is right. This reminds me of Song in the fact that people that appreciate a one-coater, would love it. I, on the other hand, always do at least two coats and with these foil/metallic polishes, it gets a bit thick and goopy after the first coat. Again, I probably shouldn't complain about having a one-coater:)
Carly is so beautiful to me. If I would arrange my nail polish by color, I think the most popular color would be burgundy/wine colors. I have always been drawn to that shade. I think it looks best with my skin tone, and it's more of a classic nail color than green or blue. Don't get me wrong, I still love my unique blues and greens, but sometimes it's nice to wear the old standby.
Have a great day!
