Road Test: Zoya Natural Nail Polish
Looking for some fab nail colors for spring, but don’t want to deal with all the chemicals? Give Zoya Natural Nail Polish a try!
Love nail polish, but hate all the nasty chemicals that are usually in most of them? Me too. This is why I’m over the moon about a brand-new discovery: Zoya Natural Nail Polish. Get a load of what landed in our mailbox!
Zoya is unique in that its formula has absolutely no nasty stuff in it. That’s right: There’s no formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, or camphor anywhere in the formula. What’s more, it’s 100 percent vegan friendly, and it’s been named the longest wearing natural nail polish by Women’s Health Magazine. How’s that for good news?
If you’re looking for fab new colors spring, Zoya’s True Nail Polish Spring Collection ($8 each or $48 for the set, zoya.com) will be right up your alley. It comes in six gorgeous colors, and whether you tend towards smooth cream colors or shiny metallic shades, there’s most definitely going to be something here for you. Farrah, a latte shade, and Bevin, a lovely sage green, cover the cream side of things, while Cho, Skylar, Tru, and Lotus will help you get your metallic on in vanilla, slate blue, orchid, or lotus shades. Right now, I’ve got Lotus on (that’s the light purple one to the far right in the photo up there), and I absolutely adore it. At its base, the color is milky and smooth; then it’s got just enough shimmer in it to give it a sassy kick. The best part? I’ve had it on for almost a week, and it hasn’t even begun to chip yet—and believe you me, I’m hard on my nails.
Feel like spicing things up even more? Meet Zoya’s new Fleck Effect Trio ($8 each or $24 for the set, zoya.com).
These three glazes are about to become your best friend. Why? Because they can transform any color of nail polish you already have into something exciting and new. There are three options: Maisie, a cool blue, Opal, a sprightly green, and Chloe, a bubbly pink. What makes them unique is their mylar fleck effect, which adds a stunning sparkle and totally transforms any color. For example, combining two coats of Bevin from the True Spring 2012 collection with one coat of Opal creates a gorgeous, gold-flecked green shade that’s absolutely stunning. Here, take a look for yourself:
Neat-o, right? They’re designed to work hand in hand with Zoya’s True Nail Polish Collection colors, so you’ll get the best results using them in tandem.
Get some spring into your step and some sparkle on your nails, and you’re good to go!
