Jelly Nail Polish by Zoya: What is it and how do I wear it?

What are Jelly Nail Polishes? 

Jelly nail polishes are semi-sheer with a unique, ultra-buildable formula. Not only are the NYFW 2012 Gloss Collection shades extremely versatile, they have a super glossy, high-shine finish. They can be worn alone or layered to create an endless variety of custom colors.

Have jelly nail polish but not sure how to wear it? Here are some ideas...

1. Wear the sheer jelly glosses alone for a subtle wash of color. Build color (3-4 coats), to a full-coverage finish that adds depth and darkness to the shade. (source: Gotham Polish)
 2. Layer Jellies over metallic or glitter polishes to create a variety of unique colors.

3. Layer over an opaque base in a similar shade or white for intense, vibrant color.

4. Create a "Jelly sandwich" - Great option for those who like the semi-sheer look but are not a fan of visible nail line (VNL). Layer one coat of jelly followed by a coat of glitter or flakes, topped off with another layer of the jelly polish. This gives the effect that the glitter is "floating" in between the layers.
