I received this in the October Boudoir Prive box and thought today was a perfect day to wear it as is quite Halloween-ish but also perfect for the upcoming colder weather as it's a lovely autumnal/winter berry shade.
Jem is one of the nail polishes from the Zoya Smoke and Mirrors Fall 2011 collection which is made up of twelve new shades - six creme shades (smoke) and six shimmery shades (mirrors). But I really would say that Jem is the prettiest shade out of the collection and one that I would of picked for myself!
This is only a mini bottle at 7.5ml which for me is more than enough with all the other polishes I have but I did take a look on eBay and found that you can pick it up for £8.79 including free p&p for the full sized 15ml bottle - here. Which I don't think is too bad for such a lovely polish like this and it one of those lovely formulas that glides onto the nails and is totally opaque in two coats.
As for the shade itself it's a deep purple based polish with a lovely duo chrome base going on, so in different light it looks slightly pink and then gold. So, so lovely and most importantly it's got a smooth finish to it, which is what you want with duo chrome nail polishes as when they have that gritty finish it's just not as good!
Rambling over with - What do you think? Is it worth just under £9? Do you know a dupe for it!
PS. Happy Halloween!!
