Zoya Gemma

Good morning! I'm so excited for Zoya's Beach and Surf collections that I decided to celebrate with one of my untried Zoyas. I decided to swatch Zoya Gemma, which I scored on the clearance selection in Ulta. I picked Gemma up for $4 a couple of weeks ago, which is a steal. I also got 7 new Zoyas in the mail today, so I'm a happy girl right now  :)

Gemma is one of those polishes that everyone raved about. I remember seeing swatches everywhere! I love greens and all but I didn't quite *get* it. Well, when I finally put Gemma on last week, I totally got it! The olive green base has a blue/lilac shimmer and it's gorgeous! Formula was easy to work with and this was opaque in two coats. While I didn't notice it in person, I have lobster hands in these photos. I don't think that will stop me from wearing this again.

The photos below show 2 coats of Zoya Gemma topped with a coat of well as my nails pre-nubbin lol...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I had been so excited to find a couple of the Zoya's on my wish list in the clearance bin at Ulta... Only to realize that they had marked them "down" to $8 from $12. $8 is the regular price... not a discount. I can get those same polishes for half that during just about any Zoya promotion. Bummer!

    1. Wow! That's really strange! At my Ulta they are the regular $8.00. I wonder if your Ulta is the only one with high pricing like that?

  2. Gemma looks lovely on you, and I really like the blue shimmer.

  3. This is one of my favorite greens of all time. Am so glad you see how awesome it is!
