Zoya - Jem & Yara

Hi folks! Today I have two polishes from the Zoya Fall 2011 collection Smoke and Mirrors.

Jem is a dark red-toned purple with metallic dark pink shimmer and some subtle gold bits. This color is phenomenal. I put this akin to Valerie from last year's holiday collection, which I loved but for some reason didn't look great on me. This one hits the nail on the head. It GLOWS and BURNS and is just fricken' fabulous. This is three coats.

Yara is a really dope color, medium olive green with fabulous yellow gold flakey speckles. It makes me think of a dinosaur egg! (P.S. is it just me or is Zoya reaching these days for names? no offense to anyone out there named Yara ;) haha.) I love the smokey yet bright quality of this polish. This is two coats. It's not particularly shiny so a topcoat would bring out more glam for this one.

I will be reviewing the rest of the Smoke and Mirrors collection soon so keep your eyes peeled loves ♥
