Zoya Holiday Gems and Jewels Collection Swatches

Yaaayy blingy!!!

  So today I have Zoya's Gems and Jewels Collections for you guys. I was so excited to swatch these because they are so stunning in the bottle and I am happy to report that they are even better on the nail :D. I hate that I have to show you guys these pretties with my nubby pinkie but I hated the look of the fake nail. Anywho, back to this collection. It's really pretty and it seriously brings the flash!

 First is the Jewels portion of the collection. This half is made up of Three metallic Jewel tones that are seriously amazing!
First up is my absolute fave out of the Jewels portion of the collection, Izzy. This pretty is the most amazing shade of Magenta metallic with hints of light Lavender flash. This color has an amazing formula. I could have gotten away with one coat but I did Two to give it full depth.

This is Noel. Loooove this as well! This is a similar concept to last year's Crystal. Where they differ is in finish. This is a smooth metallic light Blue with flashes of Gold. This one also has a great formula and is good to go in Two coats.

This is Holly. A true Emerald Green metallic. Wow... Yeah.. Just wow.... Jewels indeed. This is an excellent Holiday color. When I think of Christmas Green, this is what comes to mind. This is also an effortless Two coater.

 And that is it for the Jewels portion of the collection. I really love these colors. BUT I am very biased toward Jewel tones and these are done so beautifully, so it's hard for me not to love these. The formula is unbeatable on these stunners. I love how they catch the light and you can see how much depth there is in these colors. I also really enjoy the part where I have no dupes for any of these pretties.

 Now onto the Gems portion. This portion is made up of Three bar glitter glazes in stunning jewel tones... ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Hurray for bar glitter!
This is Kissy layered over Izzy. OMG LOVE this! Kissy is Red micro glitter, Magenta bar glitter and Holographic Bar glitter all packed into a clear base. This is soo much fun to look at. It seriously reminds me of Christmas Ornaments.

 This is Twila layered over Noel. Twila is Electric Blue micro glitter and bar glitter packed in a clear base. This looks good over EVERYTHING.... Yeah.. I went there. I really liked Noel but when I layered Twila over it... It was love.

Ahhh Rina over Holly. This is like garland for your nails. Rina is Emerald Green micro glitter and bar glitter as well as Blue iridescent bar glitter. This combination is what Holiday nail polish is all about!

Here I have the glitter glazes layered over Purity. I really love these over White. This is Two coats of each glitter glaze.
  I love that Zoya went there with the bar glitter. They give anything you layer them over such a cool, textured look and awesome depth. These are really unique and they really bring on the bling for the Holidays. I really love that they are easy to apply and that they have great coverage. 

  I am really happy with these trios. They are just sooo pretty! I love how flashy they are and the colors are soo flattering and wearable even though they are bright and bold. The glitter glazes are unique and fun. All Six polishes have a great formula and they all compliment eachother really well. This is a great Holiday collection.

  5. This is so funny..and this has happened more than once with me when I check your blog. I end up having on the same polish on that you blogged about. I just bought the Zoya Crystal yesterday, and I am wearing it now. I LOVE LOVE it. I think Zoya is quickly becoming my new fav nail polish! I almost picked up the pink one as well, but I thought the blue with gold flecks was something different that I don't yet have.

    Love them all!
