Zoya has stepped it up in the beautiful packaging department lately! My most recent PR package, sent for my honest review, consisted of 4 polishes, 3 from the new Kisses Pastel Jellies collection, and a topper that was released previously called Leia. They came housed in sleek white plastic with a spot for each polish and then in a white box, plain with just Zoya across the front in gray. Really nice looking, especially for gifting.
Here are the 3 Kisses pastel jellies, from L to R: Vickie, Libby, Princess.
There was an informational card in the box, too.
I wanted to do all 4 polishes at once, so I started here. Again, it is Vickie, Libby, Princess, and Leia from pointer to pinky. I did 2 coats of each one here, no topcoat:
Since Zoya suggests Leia as a topper, I then added one coat of Leia to each of the 3 colored nails:
Of course, you need to see all 3 solo, right?!
Zoya Princess: You already saw this on the Mani Round-Up. Of the 3, Princess is by far the most opaque and shows no VNL after just two coats. Though it looks creamy, it has a firm jelly consistency, so it applies well and doesn't flood the cuticles.
Zoya Libby: This is a lavender jelly that is semi-opaque. I am showing just two coats with topcoat here. Like Princess, it is a squishy jelly that applies really well. It is a polish that is easy to control and not messy, like many jellies can be.
Zoya Vickie: Vickie is a unique, stormy blue meets grey meets lavender color. It is the most sheer of the three, by far. I did two coats here and you can see my nail line underneath. Even though this was the most sheer in color, the formula was still very easy to work with and the dry time was quick.
Though I am not usually a sheer polish fan, I like all three of these. They remind me of the Barielle Hint of Tint line, which makes me wonder (assume) that we will see a lot more of this sheer/bare/naturalbuttinted trend in the spring.
