STEAL on Zoya Nail Polish!

Ah, I love Zoya nail polish. I discovered them a couple years ago and like them the best. They usually last a little longer than any other nail polish I wear and they have great discounts all year round.

Is Matte the Next Thing in Nails?

matte nail polishI’m a fan of Zoya nail polish, it’s my go-to, and noticed on their website and in Ulta, I was finding more matte colors.

I purchased about six mini nail polishes awhile ago and picked a matte one to see what it was like!

Originally I wasn’t sure if I would like it, just because lately I’ve been into sparkly (“pixie dust“) or shiny polishes.

I was surprised with the matte. It went on smooth and it starts off shiny and as it dries it gets the matte look.

I usually put on a couple coats.

If you buy the matte and decide you don’t like it, just take clear nail polish top coat and paint it on and voila–you’ve got your shine back.

The color I used was called “Posh” and you can find it on Zoya’s website.

Holiday Nail Polish Colors from Zoya

Zoya Winter Nail PolishIntro on Zoya

Before I go over the package I received in the mail today, I think I’d like to make it official that Zoya is my favorite nail polish. OPI you are in a CLOSE second and Essie, I’m really sorry I haven’t tried you yet but plan to. But Zoya, you’re it for me.

I love Zoya because it stays on so long before chipping. Unless I’m cleaning or doing something that involves some roughness on my nails, I can get Zoya to stay on a good four to five days before chipping is involved. And then when it does chip, it’s not overly drastic. Not chipping is what’s important to me.

But if a product being natural is important to you, they are a good nail polish to add into your rotation. Creators Zoya and Michael Reyzis made this product to be “the first working fast drying topcoat and longest wearing, toxin free natural nail polish,” according to their website. I’ll say it does dry fairly quickly which is also definitely a bonus.

Zoya Nail PolishFall/Winter Colors

Zoya has great sales and incentives to get customers to buy. It’s why I became a customer. A couple times a year they will give nail polishes away for free if you pay shipping. Or recently they had a promotion for five mini bottles for $20. But the mini bottles aren’t too small and they will last me a long time. And in fact when you see the photo, you’ll see I bought six. I couldn’t choose. Normally their prices are $8-$10 per bottle depending where you go.

In my most recent order I chose the colors with descriptions in parenthesis if you’d like to find them online (click the links):

When you’re browsing their website, you’ll see many that say “pixie dust” which is their line that includes glitter within the polish. I’m no beauty expert but I just love it for winter. I feel it’s a good shimmer that’s perfect for the season.

They have also come out with a matte line, which I haven’t tried yet but am very excited about. Stay tuned because I’ll definitely share my thoughts when I use it. But I’ve never used a matte nail polish before and am looking forward to this one.

Also, Zoya gives you some freebies with your purchase that help you learn about other colors, but one of the things in my recent order included directions to different nail art. I wish I would have found that before I attempted polka dots on my nails. I definitely have intentions to try some of the things in the book, including the picture above.

Free Nail Polish Just in Time for the Fourth

Usually I’m not too festive when it comes to clothes or makeup for holidays, but I remembered I had red and blue Zoya nail polish and thought it would be great for America’s birthday.

I really like Zoya’s nail polish and it stays on without chipping for days. I re-did mine today about a week and they hadn’t chipped much at all. (I did use OPI’s top and base coat with it too).

Even better, if you’d like to try Zoya nail polish they have a promotion running until July 6 to get three for free. All you have to pay is $12 to ship it. Not too bad since they are normally $9-$10 a piece.
