Zoya Noot is a charcoal gray leaning green. When I was painting my bathroom gray, I had a hard time finding a paint that would look true gray. They looked taupe or blue, but not gray. I have the same issue with gray nail polish. After I did some research on the internet, I found out that grays that lean green appear true gray. This is sort of true for Noot. It does look true gray in most lights. Sometimes it looks green/gray. It is a bit stark for me to wear Noot on it's own. I'll probably pair it with a light gray and do nail art most of the time I use it. Below it is with a Wet 'n Wild Kaleidoscope glitter gradient. Meh. That was O.K.
