Zoya's Jem from the Mirrors Collection - Fall 2011

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.


  1. so pretty! your nails look great btw, love the shape!

  2. In the bottle it reminds me Hard Candy's Beetle or Orly's Space Cadet but on the nail it looks different. It also kind looks like the beautiful effect in the bottle didn't quite translate to the nail. Is that true???

  3. Thanks Monkey. Deja, I don't think I did it justice and my camera sure didn't, I loved it in person.

  4. Jem is getting a bad rap as a dupe for Valerie. I see differences in the 2 - Jem has more raspberry to it and less purple. I have them both and prefer Jem.

  5. I agree Beachgal. I do see a difference too and prefer Jem too.
