Zoya 2012 NYFW Gloss Collection Swatches and Sammies

Hello and good afternoon :D! 

  I hope you are all having a good day so far! So today I finally get to show you one of my most anticipated collections for the year. The Zoya NYFW Gloss collection. The Gloss Collection is made up of Three jelly texture polishes in deep jewel tones for Fall. While these have had a mixed reception from my fellow bloggers I absolutely LOVE them and I could not wait to have them in my hands (or on them for that matter).
 Since jellies are not everyone's "thing" I decided to show swatches as well as some glitter sammiches to show them "in action". If you are not a fan of visible nail line these might not sing to you a whole lot but these are extremely versatile. 
 To see close-ups just continue reading ♥.

Zoya Katherine
 Katherine is a re-release. This color was originally created for the Peter Som trio. Katerine is a nice Raisin toned jelly with incredible shine. The formula is sheer but build-able and it flows nicely. In the swatch above I used Three coats of Katherine. 
 In the picture below I have my Three coats of Katherine followed by a coat of Shimmer Tammy and then one more coat of Katherine.  How beautiful and striking is this?

Zoya Frida
 Frida is hands-down my favorite from this trio. Frida is an absolutely stunning shade of jewel-toned Teal jelly. Much like Katherine this one also has a sheer formula but easy to build up. In the swatch above I have Three coats of Frida. 
  For the sammy below I used Shimmer in Jasmine and one more coat of Frida to encapsulate the glitter. LOOOVEEE!!!!

Zoya Paloma
  Paloma is the densest and most pigmented of the Three shades.  Paloma is a beautiful shade of Berry toned jelly. Side note: Paloma means "dove" in Spanish so now Zoya has Two "doves" in their arsenal :D. For the swatch above I only did Two coats, I realize now for pictures I should have done Three coats. IRL this really does well with just Two coats though.
  For the sammy below I used Shimmer in Jennifer and then did one more coat of Paloma over the glitter. I seriously LOVED this look so much!
 So long story short is that I LOVE these. They are very versatile as you can layer them over just about anything to create new colors, textures and effects. The formula on all of these is fantastic and easy to work with. There is no streaking and no goopyness. They really do have a fantastic consistency.  I could not be happier with this collection, especially that TEAL!!! I really hope Zoya has more jellies planned in the future because this finish is one of the most fun to work with for me and you can't beat the Zoya formula!
