Today I bring you Kiss Your Elbow Nail Polish part 3!

I recently introduced you to these beautiful glittery polishes (here and here) in a Zoya jelly sandwich. I decided to change things up a little (well, only a little) by layering it with another polish, an underrated summery beauty: OPI Big Hair, Big Nails from the Texas Collection. Yes, this is another jelly, albeit a super-bright, colour-dense jelly.

Here is Kiss Your Elbow Autumn Leaves, a clear-base polish with gold, cranberry and orange micro-glitter with larger pink and orange hexes. I love how fitting the name of this polish is – all I think when I see this polish is autumn!

And here it is over 2 coats of OPI Big Hair, Big Nails:

I loved this combo!! I loved how bright the base was against the tiny glitter, and how there was just enough difference in colour to allow all the shades of glitter to dance against the backdrop.

But…because I have been on a jelly sandwich roll…

Well, you can guess what I did next:

I added a coat of Big Hair, Big Nails to my index and middle fingers to compare the previous mani to the jelly sandwich, and you know what? I LOVED this! The jelly was just sheer enough to allow complete visibility of the glitter below, yet added more brightness and depth. What a great way to take our summer brights into fall. 🙂

Here it again:

Yesterday I shared with you my excitement over finally receiving the stunning Zoya Gloss trio, which, let’s face it, contains some of the most beautiful jellies ever released.

Today I continue that obsession with part two of my jelly-fest featuring the beautiful Zoya Paloma, a sheer berry colour, sandwiched with a brand-new indie I introduced you to yesterday!

Let’s start with all four of the gorgeous Kiss Your Elbow Nail Polishes I recently received:

Aren’t they beautiful?

For today’s jelly sandwich, I used Kiss Your Elbow’s Wallflower, a gorgeous glitter polish featuring rose gold hexes and squares with little gold squares dispersed throughout.

I love the colour combo in this polish…

My mani consisted of 2 coats of Zoya Paloma over a base coat (China Glaze), followed by a coat of Wallflower, and finished up with another coat of Paloma. Paloma was a dream to work with. It applied really well for a jelly, with no streaks (you do need to be more generous with it than you would a non-jelly), and dried to a super-high-gloss shine. I could have totally skipped the top coat but used it mainly to quickly dry my mani (I used China Glaze’s Fast Forward).

This jelly sandwich turned out amazing, literally glowing from within! The rose gold looks really coppery within Paloma, giving it such depth!

love the amber colouring of this sunset pic

And finally, a macro shot:

I love this combo so much that I refuse to remove it! I can’t wait to try my third and final Zoya Gloss, the enigmatic Katherine…. Look out for part 3 of my Jelly Sandwich posts!
You can purchase any of the Zoya Gloss polishes individually or as a set from Zoya if you’re in the US, or Nail Polish Canada! Kiss Your Elbow is on Facebook and don’t forget to check out her Etsy shop!
