I remember seeing Zoya's Gems and Jewels promos and really liked all the colors, but since I hate paying shipping, I was super excited to see these in a beauty store in Ohio! I really didn't have any other polishes with bar glitter so I picked up Kissy to try.
Nowwww Zoya kind of describes this polish as a "red" but I think on the nail, it's definitely more pink, but I'll let you ladies decide:
|Okayyy soo this looks kind of reddish...I still claim it's pink lol|
Wow! I really was impressed for my first bar glitter polish. It went on relatively easily, but needed 3 coats to be opaque. I really liked that the bar glitter incorporated yellow, green, orange, and red, all into the polish. It was really pretty!
My only issue with this polish was that the bar glitters can extend over the edge of your nail and they try kind of sharp. Sooo you either have to clean up really well, trim them, or maneuver them with the brush so they don't hang off. It also is a SUPER top coat eater! I put a coat of my normal top coat on, and you couldn't even tell! Zoom in on the second picture...it really IS that rough.
Now I didn't use Seche Vite or Poshe, so it may be able to be smoothed over with those...or even Gelous (which I've never tried), but I didn't leave this on long enough to try. As you can see, I forgot I hadn't taken pictures of it and started taking it off before I realized, which is why there are only 2 fingers in the pictures haha.
Did you guys like the polishes from the Gem and Jewels collection? Did any of them eat your top coat too??
