Kissy, Rina, Twila layered over MAC Nocturnelle

Zoya Gems & Jewels: Layering Fun

As promised, here are several different layering combinations using Zoya’s Gems & Jewels Collection.  I also layered the bar glitter shades over gold, silver, and black.  I like the shades layered best over Izzy from the holiday collection, but overall, I prefer it over silver!

See more photos & swatches!

    Might just be me, but I can’t imagine anyone over the age of 13 wanting to wear something like that.

    • I’m almost 25 and can’t WAIT for the holidays to be closer to rock these. :) I don’t think one should confine things to age.

        I agree with that. I usually don’t see any age restrictions when it comes to beauty. But this was just a bit over the top for me (for some reason). Or maybe I’m just going through a really conservative phase lol o.O

        22 – and i can’t wait. i actually have a similar polish from sally hansen that is baby pink and yellow, and it’s moking hot. yay glitter!

      • 28 myself and I’m excite for texture top costs because you can layer them with other shades.

        This 32-year-old wears glitter year round. Who am I trying to please if not myself? I love the sparkle and fun. Why not? These Zoyas are great and have landed on my wish list.

    • Laila

      I’m 49 and want them BAD! :) Twila was my mother’s name, so I have a special affinity for that one.

  5. Can’t make up my mind if I like these or really don’t… but great swatches, thanks!

    Fun! Not a fan of Zoya polish though.

    I really like bar glitter in nail polish. It’s hard to find sometimes. These are great! Thanks for the swatches!

  8. malia

    those look like soooo much fun!! My fave is over Nocturnelle

  9. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Lily lily

    these look like so much fun! I don’t think i’ll be able to where these to work but i’d totally wear these during the weekends. I hate taking off glitter polishes though

  10. I like the layers of the pink and green glitter, over the black, pink and green base. ..LOL If that makes any sense :)

  11. Rachel

    I loooovve glitter, but these just don’t appeal to me. They look sloppy.

  12. beautiful nails! looks so fun!

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Jill AngelWingz

    Woo-hoo what fun! I am LOVING the green over the pink.

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Brenda Brenda

    I love Twila over….EVERYTHING!!

    Fun pictures! Thanks for sharing all those layering combos. I liked a couple, but something about bar glitter reminds me of rod-shaped bacteria. That’s what I get for having a biology minor.

  16. Maomao

    damn girl! removing glitters like a billion times for those swatches? RESPECT. Thank you, they look amazing!

  17. amanda

    I want that Rina Holly combo. It looks like freshly cut grass shavings. I want to paint my nails like that and buy little flower decals.

  18. Constanze

    Great effects! ;)

      Hmm, even though your pics are great as usual, I am not feeling this collection. Bar glitter just looks messy to me. BTW I saw Sally Hansen bar glitters at riteaid today.

    Looks nice but, honestly, I couldn’t bring myself to use them. But for those who can, they look very fun to wear!

    drooling… gahh i want these!

  21. Ahh… so excited for this collection! Great pictures; now I’m jealous!

  22. Kelly Goodfellow

    I just had to buy the Kissy, Rina and Twila….and I’m 52!! LOL Going to Disney World for Christmas, and can’t wait to flash my glitzy nails!! :)
