I’m going straight to the point. What I think of Zoya nail polishes is that they’re SUPER AWESOME. I’m not just saying that because I’m juju’s web fairy and it’s my job to tell you that we got new (ahhh-mazing!) shades in the salon. I’m saying this because these two Zoyas I own are my all-time favorite nail polishes. They stay on well and for long, and look beautiful. The best thing is that they’re non-toxic – no formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate or camphor. This doesn’t make much of a difference to my boyfriend though – he still tells me to go to another room when I put the polish on because of the ‘stink’. These polishes do have a chemical fragrance as all polishes do, but it’s less than with conventional polishes. Also, it’s just comforting to know that none of the worst poisons you could put on and in your body, are totally absent from this brand’s products.
As I write this, I’m looking at these two happy polishes sitting on my desk. The bright red is called Sooki and is my favorite – it’s classic, has a nice seductive air about it, and it makes me feel like Marilyn Monroe inside. It spreads easily and evenly, and the finish is clear and crisp.
The lime green polish is called Mitzi and I got it because I wanted something shocking. The tone was yellower than I expected, so the shock-value wasn’t fully realized, but it works well for those days when I want a retro mod type look, or to feel fashionable and edgy, or I just want a break from other colors and use something totally different on my nails. The finish is matte which is exciting.
