Today I'm bringing you another beautiful polish, Jem, from the Mirrors Collection from Fall 2011. Zoya describes her as: A dark red-toned purple base with metallic dark pink highlights and subtle gold duochrome flecks.? This shade has it all; bold color, vampy drama, bright sparkle and a glam rock persona.? On their 1-5 Opaque scale, it is listed as a 5.
I used a base coat, 2 coats of color and a top coat for this polish. It applied smoothly and it only took 2 coats to cover completely. This color has been compared to another one of Zoya's polishes, Valerie. I have both polishes and they are in the same color family, but I can also see differences. Do you need both colors? Which one would I pick between the two? That's up to you, I like having both.
What are your thoughts about this polish? I love the darker Fall/Winter colors. You can find Zoya polishes at www.Zoya.com and at Ulta. They retail for $8. Zoya often does promotions on the Facebook page and you need to sign up ahead of time on their website to participate. Their facebook is a great place to ask questions, get information and share pictures of your manicures.
