|Zoya Gems Trio (left to right) - Rina, Kissy, Twila|
Color description - Shimmery, emerald green--so pretty!
Application/Opacity - Holly applied smoothly and beautifully in 2 coats and as you can see, is completely opaque.
|Zoya Holly - Isn't that a perfect winter green? I love it!|
Color description - Combination of emerald green micro and tinsel glitter with some strands of blue holo-glitter mixed in.
Application/Feel- This was reasonably easy to apply despite being a mixture of so many kinds of glitter. I find that strands of glitter can take a bit more time to spread evenly, but it was easy enough to move this around on my nail with the brush to get the look I wanted. Like most glitters of this nature, it is definitely rough and requires 1-2 top coats depending on how many coats you use. This could absolutely be layered or use on its own. I did 3 coats because I wanted full-coverage.
|Zoya Rina - Can you see the strands of blue holo-glitter? This is very pretty in person!|
|The "i" is faded, but it is Kissy ;)|
Application/Feel - This applied the same way Rina did, requiring a little strategic sliding with my brush, but nothing too labor intensive. This is also rough when finished, so I suggest 1-2 top coat layers. This could also be layered or used on its own. I used 3 coats because I wanted full-coverage.
|This skews a bit more red than it is in person. In person it's a vibrant raspberry pink with strands of holo-glitter. These were very hard to capture because of their complexity!|
Color description - Combination of blue micro and tinsel glitter with a sprinkling of green holo-glitter--the holo-glitter was more subtle in this one compared to the rest.
Application/Feel - Like the others, this applied the same. I had to slide some of the strands of glitter around a bit to get the look I wanted, but it was simple enough to do. I'd suggest 1-2 layers of top coat over this as well. This looks great layered or on its own. I did 3 coats with this one as well.
|Zoya Twila - If you look really closely you can almost see that a few of the strands look more aqua than blue--those are the green holo strands. I couldn't seem to capture them shifting to green, but you can see it in person.|
These are priced at $8 per bottle, $24 per trio, and $48 for the set retail.

If you follow my blog you know I'm a sucker for holiday beauty products and cosmetics! I love Zoya's Gems & Jewels collection and while I didn't purchase 2 of the Jewels polishes, I wish I had. If you're craving festive holiday colors and glitters this will definitely make you happy. Also, I love that these incorporate tinsel-like glitter and holo-glitter. I think it makes them stand out a bit from some of the other holiday glitters out there ;)
