Zoya Gemma

Okay, really?  I'm not normally a green polish person.  I normally freak out with green because I'm scared my nails will be stained yellow.  However, Zoya's Gemma from the Intimates Collection ended up being my manicure for almost THREE days.  That's pretty epic for a green.  Gemma is listed as a mysterious green/purple duotone metallic.  Yeah, it's definitely awesome and mysterious and WOW.  Check this out!

Do you see that purple and blue duochrome goodness?  Seriously, enlarge the picture - it's worth it!  I'll wait for you.


Welcome back.  ^_^   I used a base coat of Zoya Anchor, 2 coats of Gemma and a top of Zoya Armor.  Then, because I was rushed, I put on a top coat of Seche Vite over my Armor and I didn't wait long enough so you'll notice the wrinkling on my ring finger.  That's what happens when you drag wet polish.

In the sun, you mostly see the olive green going but there's a bit of blue/purple shimmer in there.  Erm, duochrome... duotone... it's all great.

In the shade, this color almost looks like a jelly!  (Sorbet?)  Watery, murky, I'm in love.  This is why I kept this color on for so long.  I love it.  Definitely a new favorite for me.

Zoya [official website] can be purchased on their website for $8/bottle.
