NOTD: Zoya Gemma

So, with only a few days until I chop my nails, I've been trying to make the most of the long nails while they're around.  I've been looking forward to wearing Zoya Gemma from the Intimate collection since I got it ... and sadly I'm a bit disappointed.  In the bottle there's such a strong purple/periwinkle flash, but it all but disappears on the nail:


It nagged at me for a while, what it reminded me of, until I figured out that it's very close to Essie Sew Psyched.  Sew Psyched is a bit more grey, but they're definitely in the same family.

Thanks for reading =)

  6. Doesn't it give a little bit military feeling? Probably goes good with some camouflage pattern :)

  9. Loving the Blog here in the UK, its a shame we can't get a lot of the Brands you mention. Do you get Leighton Denny out there yet? His range is amazing i'm a bit of an addict for it as well as OPI and a brand we have here called Nails inc. Anyway love the blog and the Videos always very interesting!

  12. Put a coat of Esie Kisses & Bisses over Gemma and you will have what you are looking for that you see in the bottle. I also thought Gemma was better in the bottle than on - but now I love it!
