I finally, finally, FINALLY got my hands on the BEAUTIFUL Zoya Gloss Trio. I mean, can you tell just how excited I am?? Jellies were made for ME!!!!
Not only that, but admire my bottle shot above!!! 6 Zoyas in all!! Don’t worry, I’ll bring you some more pictures of all the others soon. 🙂 And I’m also thrilled to try my very first bottle of Soulstice, but more on all that later!
I practically tore open the Zoya Gloss package in order to get my hands on these jellies! The very first one I tried is here:
That’s only 2 coats of Zoya Frida, a teal jelly beauty that layers amazingly well. For some reason, this Gloss collection has not received the best reviews, but I wonder if that’s because some people just don’t love jellies. I find them to be a very special breed of polish… I compare them to lipgloss – for the nails. It’s not for everybody, but those that love it, LOVE it. And I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect jelly! This was one of the best jelly polishes I have tried, by far! The consistency was a little thicker – almost gelatin-like, and you have to work quickly and evenly. But by the time I had applied the first coat, I was able to go back and apply the second without any more wait. And no bubbling!
If I was wearing this alone, I would have applied a third coat for sure. The Gloss collection is so glossy, it does not even need a top coat. See the picture above? No top coat and the polish is dry!
But I had other things in mind.
Let me show you:
A beautiful, perfect jelly sandwich!!!!
Allow me to introduce you to a new polish line called Kiss Your Elbow Nail Polish, whose gorgeous A Drop in the Ocean I layered between my Zoya Frida.
Cassidy, the super-sweet creator behind this brand, recently launched her inaugural line of 6 polishes, and she asked if I would swatch some for her. I keep pretending I don’t like blues and greens when it comes to polishes, but who am I kidding. Blue is actually my favourite colour, and water (especially the ocean) is my very favourite thing. So naturally I always gravitate towards these beauties, and A Drop in the Ocean was no different. And the moment I saw the bottle, I knew I had to layer it with Frida!
Let’s let the pictures do the talking!
Look at a polish macro:
And more jelly sandwiches!

Let’s show Kiss Your Elbow some love on her Facebook page or by checking out A Drop in the Ocean in her Etsy shop! And there may just be a little something happening on my Facebook page soon… maybe a giveaway…?
I’ll have more Kiss Your Elbow polish for you again soon!
What did you think of Frida? And of A Drop in the Ocean?
