Zoya: Holly & Rina (Gems and Jewels Collection)

Hi everyone! Today I have two colors from Zoya's Gems and Jewels Holiday Collection. I think this was a really festive look for the season. I layered Rina over Holly.  Let's start with Holly:

Holly  is a (wouldn't you know) Holly green color. It's a shimmery sort of frosty finish and has a nice sparkle to it.  While it's somewhat frosty in finish I did not have any issues with brush streaks at all.  I used two coats for the opacity shown and had no bald spots.  I think this color alone is a great festive holiday color. I just love green!

To push the look over the top for the season I added two coats of Rina  on top. Rina is a green and holographic bar glitter that sits in a clear base. I think it absolutely needs to be layered because the base is much to sheer for my liking to be worn alone.  The glitter is mostly green but every once in a while the holo particles flash mostly blue to my eye. 

I think this looked pretty cool layered over Holly but in all honesty I am not a fan of the bar glitter, I just don't think it's pretty.  It looks sort of like Easter grass or something. This is just a personal preference  and does not have anything to do with the quality of the polish to me. 

So what do you think of these two polishes together and alone? 

Do you like the bar type glitter? Am I the only one who isn't digging it?
