Zoya Coraline & Kate plus Jelly Sandwiches

Today I have two of the three Zoya Jellies from the Blogger Collection by Birchbox.  This collection is still available for $22 (shipping included).  I love a good jelly and I'm happy that Zoya came out with these beauties!!  First up is Zoya Coraline, alone and used in a jelly sandwich..

Zoya Coraline

Coraline is a warm juicy tangerine jelly inspired by Eleventh Gorgeous.  I usually am not an "orange person," but this citurs-y orange really caught my eye.  Jellys really aren't meant to wear alone (unless you like sheer polishes).  They are more of a "layering polish", but after four generous coats, Coraline looks bright and shiny on her own.  :)

Throw in a layer of Lynnderella One Nutty Fruitcake, and you have a gorgeous jelly sandwich:

So, the above combo goes something like this:  Four generous coats of Coraline, allow to completely dry, and add a generous coat of Lynnderella One Nutty Fruitcake, then two more thin coats of Coraline.  If you were using a regular creme, this would be a thick mess, but these new jellys are sheer and gorgeous!!

Zoya Kate:

Zoya Kate is a pinkish grapefruit inspired by The Small Things.  Gorgeous!!  Again, this is four generous coats.  This color screams: "Summer!!"  I love this fruity shade of pink.  :)

Zoya Kate and Nubar White and Black Polka Dots make another Jelly Sandwich:

I really like this combo too... It reminds me of salt and pepper.  For this combo I used four generous coats of Zoya Kate, one coat of Nubar White Polka Dots & one coat of Nubar Black Polka Dots, then I topped it off with another thick coat of Kate.

Both of these polishes are pretty and versatile and are still available here.  :)
