Gloss is the third and final NYFW inspired collection this fall from Zoya. One of the shades named Katherine was created for  designer Peter Som.

This collection includes three new jelly shades. In case you are wondering what makes a polish a “jelly” here’s the deal. Jellies are sheer, but also buildable. They tend to look like see-through colored acrylic, if that makes any sense. They’re usually very shiny as well.

As far as formula well, I had some difficulties. While they aren’t meant to be opaque, I felt like I couldn’t get two of them even no matter how thin or thick I made the coats.

Zoya Paloma

Paloma is a berry jelly. This is the one I had the least issues with. It looks pretty even and nice. This is three coats.

Zoya Frida

Frida is a teal/blue leaning more towards green. You can see it doesn’t quite look even with three coats. But another 1-2 more maybe would have solved it.

Zoya Katherine

Katherine is a reddish brown shade. This one gave me the most issues, it tends to be pretty uneven if you aren’t careful. This is three coats.

Overall: I’ll be honest, I didn’t love these but I am not a huge jelly fan in general anyway. I know a lot of people love the jelly texture and finish though! I do like how shiny they are and that they’re buildable.

Availability: Zoya mid July.

Pricing: $8.00 for 0.5 oz.

What do you think about these shades? Are you  into jellies or prefer a more opaque finish?
