The one with the Zoya polish.

Friday Obsessions: ZOYA


Zoya Nail Polish Bottles

I especially love today's Friday Obsessions. You all know of my love for pretty nail polish, but the one unfortunate consequence of always having my nails painted is the state of my natural nails. All the chemicals in my go-to polishes have left my nails brittle and thin.

A few months ago my mom ordered from a brand called Zoya after hearing about it through YouTube. After researching what the brand was about I ordered some for myself. I didn't have the highest expectations (in my mind nothing could beat the quality of OPI for Sephora) so I quickly slapped on a red color and put on one of my own top coats.

To my surprise the polish lasted an entire 7 days with only some wearing on my thumbnail (!!) You can see the specific color I'm talking about in Wednesday's post where I am holding Domo.

Here is some info directly from the Zoya website...

Zoya Nail Polish has been awarded as the longest wearing natural nail polish by an independent panel in Women’s Health Magazine. Zoya Nail Polish is a nail polish free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor. Nail Polish by Zoya offers over 300 gorgeous nail polish colors to choose from, plus 4 seasonalcollections of nail polish every year. Zoya Nail Polish was specifically formulated to deliver the longest wear possible on natural nails. Zoya Nail Polish can be found in better beauty salons, spas and online at www.zoya.com.

Great color selection, long-wearing, and kind to my nails...Can you see why I'm obsessed? :)

What's your favorite brand? Any other more natural polishes that I should try?

That is all.

  5. I got some for free in December when they had a promotion they were doing for hitting 25,000 facebook fans. They're great. You should "like" them on facebook, because they do a lot of promotions. At the end of March they had a BOGO for the summer colors...I missed it and am sad.

  7. Believe it or not, I was introduced to Zoya nail polishes by... my husband !! I asked him to get me OPI's bubble bath the other day. The store he was in was out of stock so the SA suggested a similar color in the Zoya brand. I was bummed out at first, and quickly changed my mind. This stuff has amazing lasting power !!!

  8. Thanks for sharing this!!! I'm so weird about my nails because of all the chemicals. Afraid they're going to be yellow, or brittle or...whatever. I'll have to give this brand a try. Natural is always better! Thanks dear. =)

  9. I love Zoya, too! I got some a few months back when they were having a facebook promotion & I love them. Another brand that I've tried recently (don't judge) is Sinful Colors, it's like $2.99 a bottle at most drugstores & they have some great colors. Since I paint my nails a few times a week, & have invested A LOT of $$$ in OPI & Essie, I love their cheaper price :)

  13. I use Barry M, it's super cheap and lasts forever as well.
    I've been using the Dior base coat for years and my nails never suffered any damage... and I wear nail polish every single day.
    Love your rainbow nails!

  15. Ooh, I'll have to check those out! Have you tried OPI's nail strengthener as your base coat? My nails get really brittle because it's so cold and dry up here. The nail strengthener is a life saver!

  16. i super love that you one hand is colorful while the other is monotone - can i steal that from you?? you ALWAYS have the best nails - i'm steppin' up my nail game. while i used to stick to the cheap stuff (wet & wild, confetti, etc.) i've just started to amp it up with Essie & OPI. i've even gotten my friends on board too...hmm, maybe Zoya will be my next purchase! :)

  17. Those colours are amazing! I'm completely obsessed with nailpolish - I feel naked if my nails aren't painted. And my nails are really dry and brittle all the time too, so I think I will certainly be giving those a try sometime!

  20. I love having my fingernails painted, HOWEVER - it never lasts. I don't care what brand it is, top coats, base coats..my nails always chip so fast. Last week I painted my nails with OPI and two nails PEELED off (the paint, haha) the next day. Grrr....

    I'd love to try this polish and see if it actually lasts on me!

  25. Zoya's sister company Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator is wonderful if you are trying to improve the quality of your own nails. Also, Zoya is getting ready to do another promo! Like their facebook so you won't miss it!
