Zoya Gems and Jewels Holiday 2011 Collection, Swatches and Review

Hello everyone! I hope you're having a great week so far. Tonight I wanted to share the Zoya Gems and Jewels Collection with you.

Holly - emerald green shimmer, 2 coats. Indirect sunlight.

Holly in the shade.

- shimmering green microglitter with accent green-blue bar glitter. One coat over Holly.

Twila over Rina - another combo to show how cute these are when they're layered.

- quick drying fuchsia shimmer that applied in 2 coats.

Kissy - cherry crimson microglitter with holographic bar glitter highlights. One coat over Izzy.

Noel - icy blue metallic shimmer. Two coats.

Twila - bright blue microglitter with blue bar glitter highlights in a clear base. One coat over Noel.

Closer view of Twila and more color accurate.

More layering fun, Kissy over Twila.

The glitters glazes are packed with shimmering microglitter and sparse bar glitter for highlights. The great thing about the glazes is that they can be layered over a basecoat or on top of each other to create different looks. They do need to be patted on, in my opinion, for better application. For the pieces that didn't lie flat I gently patted them down with a toothpick. This is a common occurrence with most of the bar glitters I own so it was no surprise here. All of the shimmers have a great formula, applied smoothly and dried quickly. Noes is my favorite shimmer and Twila is my favorite glaze. Overall this is a fun set for the Holidays even if you're not a bar glitter fan.
