Zoya Kisses nail polish collection review swatches on beautyjudy.com

When this collection first popped up in my inbox, I thought…what the?!

I was in the swing of the holidays, not thinking about transitional nail colors.

As I swatched them, I realized just how appealing the Zoya Kisses pastel creme jelly polishes are as we head into 2018.

Although it’s still going to be winter (well, here on the East Coast of the US, anyway!), this is a short, but to-the-point transitional winter collection that lightens up the vampy and festive/sparkly holiday nails we’ve likely all been sporting. Plus, these Kisses are made for layering, and Zoya sent over their pretty pink-glowy white shade Leia to try just that.

After every polish swatch, I’ll show it layered with Leia, as well.

Vickie

Zoya Vickie Zoya Kisses nail polish collection jelly cremes swatches review on BeautyJudy.com

Vickie is a milky gray polish that seems to have a touch of dusty, deep lavender. I used three coats of Vickie here. The coats went on easy over my clear base coat but I recommend waiting until the second coat dries before attempting a third; I had some pulling when I went in for the third that was my fault for being impatient.

Vickie is my favorite of this trio.

Here she is with Leia over her:

Vickie and Leia is my favorite of the three polishes and layering!

Libby

Libby is described as a milky lavender jelly. Where Vickie seems to have a dusty lavender vibe, Libby is a bright lavender. I used two coats here and still have visible nail line – but I rather like it.

Here she is with one coat of Leia over her:

Princess

Zoya Princess Zoya Kisses nail polish collection jelly cremes swatches review on BeautyJudy.com

Princess is a milky pink jelly. I used two coats. Of the three, this one has the most pigment so two coats eliminated nail line for me but if your nails are longer you might need a third if you want your Princess mani opaque!

Here is Princess with one coat of Leia:

Leia seems to give Princess a bubble gum quality to me!

Overall – I like the easy formula of these jellies. I like that Zoya has done a little change-up in how it’s presenting collections, it seems strategic for the season.

I haven’t tried layering jelly sandwiches or other sheer toppers over these jellies but the combinations seem endless whether you’re purchasing a new toppers or glitters or incorporating the jellies into your own stash!

Each of the four polishes I’ve featured here costs $10 a piece; you can purchase them through the link to the website above.

What do you think of the Zoya Kisses? Are you feeling the jelly finish?

    I have to say I love Princess because pink is my favorite color, but Vickie is such a beauty! Topped with Leia is my favorite combination.

    I’m actually fond of wearing more neutral polishes in cooler weather, and deeper ones in the Summer LOL. Leia is definitely the pick of the bunch; it can go with anything!

    I love Vicky, but I totally lost it when I saw the Leia topper layered over! Such a gorgeous combo!

    I like the sheerness of those! And the Vickie/Leia combo is my favorite.

  • Jen Sky Walker

    These work so beautifully with Leia! The trio is a little too pastel to really work with my skintone, but they are gorgeous!

    I like this collection especially the topper, it just transforms the color to something magical

  • marciaf

    The topcoat really makes the collection. When you put that over the other shades they became unique.

  • Stepford Witch

    The Vickie and Leia combination is my favourite too.
