[REVIEW] Zoya Gemma

So sorry for neglecting my blog, All!

If I'm completely honest, I bought this colour because of the name. Gemma is just such a pretty name! The colour itself is pretty, as well. Zoya describes it as having a bluish-purple shimmer, but I've only really noticed a purplish shimmer.

What Zoya has to say:
Zoya Nail Polish in Gemma can be best described as: Light muted olive green with an overlay of blue and violet duochrome shimmer. Unique, hip and cutting-edge yet subtle enough to suit any wardrobe.
Colour Family Greens
Finish Dual Tone Metalllic
Intensity 4 ( 1=Sheer - 5=Opaque )
Tone Cool
Original Collection Intimate
Gemma is such a gorgeous colour; it's a muted green, yet it becomes bright. I love how the way it catches the light. It is very sheer though, so it took three coats for it to cover completely, which can be kind of annoying. I like nail lacquers to cover a bit better in maybe two coats. On the bright side, it's not streaky which is nice!

Now, aside from the review, another little bit of life update. We've traded one part of the family for another, and now my grandparents are visiting! Oh well. At least it's not a ton of screaming children! Also, I have everything ready (and most packing done!), so now I'm just sitting and waiting until it's finally time to head to school! To fill the time, I've issued myself a bit of a challenge.

I want to join a couple of clubs at school, but mostly I think I want to join the Trampolining Club. It's been so long since I've bothered to do any sort of exercising, so I've started a bit of a workout plan! Hopefully I can keep keep up with it! Sometimes my laziness gets the better of me, especially when it comes to exercising!

Expect some pictures from around school and my new city within the coming month! I will be in my new home the 30th of September!

Also! Check out Sam's 100+ follower giveaway! There are some really cute items that she's put together!


  1. Wow, it looks like jade on your fingers! Love the color but I'm surprised it's so different from the bottle.

    I don't know if I asked this already, but what exactly are you doing/studying after you moved?`I can't remember but I guess I never asked :) I know how you must feel, I was so excited to start a whole new life on another continent! I guess it will be pretty amazing :D

  2. In the bottle in person you can really see more of a purple shimmer and it looks a lot lighter than when dry on the nails!

    I'm studying modern languages, so I'll be studying Italian and French and maybe German, too! A few other languages on the side for fun though, too.

    I really liked reading about your experiences :] It's given me something to look forward to!

  3. Ah of course, it's also on your sidebar! Wow so many languages, I really have enough to do to become fluent in Japanese and don't forget everything in an instant! I guess you are a natural O.O

    Do you know German yet? Because I had a German blog for the whole year where I postet a looooot more about my life there than I did on my regular blog. :)

  4. I just really like languages haha :] They're fun!

    Not yet! I've never taken any German, but I make my own course at school, and I thought why not?! I look forward to learning it though ^^
