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 Posche...as well as my nails pre-nubbin lol...
Thanks for stopping by!
