Zoya Fall 2012 - Gloss Collection

Friday, July 13, 2012

Good evening!
Tonight I have the Gloss Collection from Zoya Fall to show you. You must know by now that the jelly finish is one of my favorites so that it should not be any surprise to you that this was hands down, the set that I was most excited about and it did not disappoint! I'll be honest with you. My goal is to convince you that you absolutely need the whole set by the time you finish this post, that's just how much I love these jellies. There are three shades- Paloma, Frida and Katherine.

Paloma is a fuchsia jelly. Perfect here in three coats. It is very juicy looking, like sunlight catching on a bursting raspberry.

Frida is a dark teal jelly. Three coats. You don't know just how long I've waited for something like this. Dark! Teal! Jelly! All three words are exclamation worthy. There is some visible nail line, so I'm thinking that I'll pair this with glitter or flakes.

Katherine is an eggplant shade. Three coats as well.

And of course, just to show you how they look with various coats:
One coat each.

Two coats each.

Three coats.

A tip to remember is that you should really make certain to pause a decent length of time between coats, because unlike other finishes, jellies are especially unforgiving and can cause "dragging". However, they really do look lovely, don't they? Not just on their own- there are so many uses for jellies!

You can layer them on top of sparkle shades, like from the Zoya Diva set (which I'll show you in a few days). Pictured here, my pointer and middle finger have Zoya Daul as the base color with a coat of Katherine on top. My other two fingers are painted with just Katherine. Look at the fire that the gold sparkles now have! Isn't that depth amazing?

You can also layer them with flakes or glitter. Here, I've layered Zoya Opal on top of Frida. Another option is to do "sandwiches"- one layer of your jelly followed by a coat of your glitter or flakes topped off with another layer of the jelly polish.

Last but not least, you can layer them over other finishes, including mattes and cremes! Here, my pointer and middle finger have Paloma on top of Zoya Lolly, which is a matte finish. My ring and pinky have just Lolly by itself.

Is my love for these polishes not contagious? There are just so many ways to wear jellies, the addition of these three polishes pretty much triples any polish lover's collection! I'd also like to add that unlike some jellies, these dry to a remarkably high shine finish.

So what do you think? Are you infected by my utter delight in these jellies?

Zoya polishes are free of formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor.
