NOTD: Louise by Zoya

Disclaimer:  I purchased this.
I've got a thing for chocolate brown cream polishes.  So, when Zoya recently had a special offer going on, I made a beeline for Louise from the fall 2013 Satin collection.

Louise is a beauty, without a doubt.  Extremely glossy, this is two coats with no top coat.  The polish felt thin so I had to be careful not to get too much on the brush or it would pool, but was also very self leveling.  I was curious if China Glaze's Mahogany Magic was a dupe, so I've posted a picture of it below to compare.  Louise looks like dark chocolate compared to Mahogany Magic's milk chocolate, so not a dupe!

I used Louise as the base for some nail art (I know, unheard of for me) I was doing for Adopt a Shelter Dog month, but I'd wear this alone gladly!
