Zoya Gloss Collection swatches

Thursday, July 19, 2012

The Zoya Gloss Collection. A sheer jelly collection from New York Fashion Week 2012. "Haute" off the runway. A new color collection for fall.

Jelly polishes are a "buildable" formula. Meaning you can build the polish up to provide the coverage you want. I used three coats for each of these polishes. The natural sunlight makes them appear alot more sheer. These polishes have an extremely high gloss. I didn't use a top coat for these swatches and the shine is unbelievable! I completely love the finished look. These jellies have a depth that is quite stunning.

I took photos in both full sunlight and in artificial light so the full range of color can be seen.

Zoya Frida is described as a sheer teal blue jelly gloss. In artificial light it appears as a deep blue/green.

Zoya Katherine is described as a sheer aubergine jelly gloss. Katherine is a Peter Som custom shade. It is a phenomenal shade of eggplant maroon. I made a "jelly sandwich" on my ring finger with 2 coats of Katherine, then one coat of Daul (from the Diva Collection) and then one coat of Katherine.

Zoya Paloma is described as a sheer berry red jelly gloss. It has gorgeous pink tones. I made a "jelly sandwich" on my ring finger with 2 coats of Paloma, then one coat of Zoya Kissy  and then one coat of Paloma. I love this look.

Zoya polishes are Big 5 Free - all formulas are completely free of harmful industrial chemicals.
Bottom line: I hadn't really tried too many jellies before this. Now I am wondering why. Although it takes a little patience I love the depth and the shine these jellies offer.

    1. Victoria. Thanks. I like them too. I am still trying to get used to my short nails. They need to hurry up and grow back. I miss them.
