I think Ray is about as dark green as you can get without looking like black. Its shimmers are subtle silver and green, only adding a hint of glimmer to the finish. I confess I did not like this color when I first tried it. I wanted a dark jewel green to fit in with the theme of the other colors from the collection. But it slowly grew on me and I came around. I think this would be the perfect color to wear on a crisp winter day with jeans and boots.
Ray's first coat is surprisingly light and streaky, so that it resembles a dirty swamp (eek!) on the nails. Thankfully, the second coat solves all that, making it opaque and bringing out the depth of color you see in the bottle.
You can find Ray on Zoya.com for $8 for 0.5 fl oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 total and free shipping! Info is HERE.
