Hi everyone! Today I have a part of what you've all been waiting for for me, the Zoya Gloss collection for fall 2012! It's been awhile! I still am not feeling like taking swatches or anything of that sort... but I might as well post already edited pics, right? :)
First up today is Paloma. This is my favorite of the three! The second bottle picture is the most accurate of the bunch, but you can see that on the nail it is more pink than it is in the bottle. Described by Zoya as A sheer deep fuchsia-berry with a buildable jelly gloss finish, this one went on very even and it is gorgeous! Shown below are 1, 2 and 3 coats and a jelly sandwich made with a pink hex glitter.
Second, we have Frida. Zoya describes this shade as A sheer, dark, warm-toned teal blue with a buildable jelly gloss finish. Coverage on this one isn't quite as good as Paloma and took 4 coats to get bottle color, with vnl still present. It is very pretty, though! Shown below is 1,2,3, and 4 coats and a jelly sandwich made with the same pink hex glitter as above.
Last is Katherine. Zoya describes this shade as a sheer, dark, red-toned aubergine with a buildable jelly gloss finish. I call this a dark berry red jelly. Pretty close either way. :) This shade had the "worst" formula. It was harder to apply evenly than the others, but by three coats it looks nice. Four coats would provide a closer-to-full coverage effect. Shown below are 1,2,3 coats and a jelly sandwich with the pink hex glitter.
Overall, I really like these for what they are. I'm not sure I will use them much since I don't like sheer polishes, but they are amazing for sandwiches (which we have all been really into lately!)! I also really like Paloma alone, so I'm sure I'll figure out some use for it teehee. If you like sheer, or sammiches (don't we all), then I would pick these up for sure!
The Fall 2012 Gloss collection can be found on the Zoya website for $8 each. Will you be getting these?
Thanks for reading!
