Zoya Gloss Collection Swatches

We ask, and Zoya listens! Jelly polishes are very popular lately, and Zoya's Gloss collection has three lovely sheer jellies to offer.

Zoya Paloma is a bright fruity pink sheer jelly.
 This is Claire's Candy Shop sandwiched with Paloma. Nummy!

Zoya Frida is a lovely blue green teal sheer jelly.

This is Icing Magnetic Attraction sandwiched with Frida.

Zoya Katherine is a smoky deep purple sheer jelly.

 This is 365 Days of Color Rock Candy sandwiched with Katherine.

Absolutely hate visible nail line? Try a coat or two of Gloss over an opaque nude polish like Zoya Farah. You get the same juicy finish, with no vnl! From top to bottom it's Frida, Paloma, and Katherine.

The Gloss collection can be applied over loads of different polishes to change the hue or add a totally different feel. Play around with it, it's fun!

Zoya Daul with (top to bottom) one coat of Katherine, Frida, and Paloma. The pinky nail is just Daul.

Zoya FeiFei with (top to bottom) one coat of Katherine, Paloma, and Frida. The pinky nail is just FeiFei.

Zoya Rekha with (top to bottom) one coat of Katherine, Paloma, and Frida. The pinky nail is just Rekha.

Zoya Evvie with (top to bottom) one coat of Katherine, Paloma, and Frida. The pinky nail is just Evvie.
I used two coats of Gloss for these swatches, three total for the jelly sandwiches, and just one over the other polishes. The formulas were really great! They dried a bit faster than regular polishes. They were only streaky with a single coat, which so many polishes are, so no problem there. As with many polishes, they will bubble if the coats are applied too thick, so don't try to cheat when building up your layers. I loved the look at two coats with some mild visible nail line. Of course the finish was a delicious squishy shiny awesomeness. And the removal, a breeze! You want a quick mani? Two coats of one of the Glosses, and out the door. No base, no top, perfectly shiny.

You can get these polishes on Zoya's website - $24 for the collection of 3 or $8 for one.
If you sign up for an account with this link you'll receive a coupon for a free bottle of Zoya nail polish! If you add two more polishes to your order you even get free shipping. Awesome deal! So you could get this full collection for $16 and free shipping = $5.33 a polish.


  1. Wow I love your swatches luv !!! Thanks for showing ways to wear it also

  2. I cant not complete a successful jelly sandwich! Please teach me your ways!

  3. What problems do you have with it Brittany? These swatches are just two coats of jelly, one coat of a nice chunky glitter, and one coat of jelly over that. You can also do a jelly sani over an opaque if you don't like vnl.

  4. GRRRREAT swatches! Thanks so much for the ideas. :-D

  5. Omg Paloma... you must be mine...
