Amor de Lacquer: Zoya Gems and Jewels Holiday 2011 collection

| November 9, 2011 | 8 Comments

Who better to break in the holiday nail polish collections than my dear ole’ Zoya? This is one fantastic collection simply because it contains lots of stunning colors AND glitters. Yup.

Go ahead and get your dance on.


Izzy is a bright magenta that is just gorgeous. It has a bit of a foil-y finish and will make a fantastic pedi color.


Holly is a bright green metallic that rocks my world. I remember when there weren’t many emerald green polishes on the market and I’m glad to see another one.


Noel is a light denim blue. I can’t put my finger on any shades like it in my stash. I much prefer darker and richer blues but this one is okay.

Rina is opaque at 3 coats but I wanted to show you swatches of it at one so you can get an idea of how it looks on its own. Thank you for this one, Zoya! An emerald bar glitter? I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this.

Twila is another bar glitter with a bit of holographic shimmer in it. I used 3 coats for this one.

Kissy is like a party in a bottle. It is fantastic alone but really shines over Izzy. Izzy and Kissy. Hahahaa!

I really love this collection. I’ve never come across a Zoya polish whose consistency bugged me and these are no exceptions. I used 2 coats for each polish but did 3 coats for the glitter. I was glad to see that they gave me an opaque finish. It would have sucked something serious if these glitters were super sheer. This is one unique holiday collection and aside from it being a great little stocking stuffer, I think it’ll please nail polish lovers everywhere. You can get it online at Zoya.com for $8 a bottle or $48 for the whole set.

Must Haves:
-Holly: But only if you don’t already have a stunning emerald polish.
-Kissy: Nothing else like it exists. Well, not that I know of.
-Twila: Sheer blue beauty in a bottle.

    Wow, the first picture is really a gorgeous pink colour!


  3. I have to say that these colours totally POP on your skin tone so well! Very flattering!

    The bar glitters are what excite me the most because I don’t have any. Well, when I was a little girl, I did, but I no longer have them. They would be so fun for layering!

    Thank you for swatching these. :) Have a great Friday!
