Look at that colour! It’s like summer in bottle. This shade is Ali and despite looking like a glossy, hot pink in the bottle, it goes on the nails like a neon matte pink. Very different to what I expected, but I rolled with it and ended up really liking it.
Zoya was named after one of the co founders, a Russian classical pianist who moved to America and took up cosmetology, who along with her chemist husband, went on to set up Art of Beauty, Zoya’s mothership. Zoya products don’t have any toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin or DBP (dibutyl phthalate) in them which is what originally attracted me, plus their selection of colours is huge. HUGE.
This polish has got good pigmentation and took three coats to get a strong, even colour. I haven’t found a 5 free nail varnish that holds up as well as conventional nail varnish and sadly this is no different, chipping after a couple of days. This doesn’t put me off this polish though, because I think chipping is a downside of 5 free polishes that we’ll need to accept for a little while yet. Just need to keep working my way through that colour collection!
Zoya polish is available for £11 from Naturisimo.
As always, I love reading your comments and always appreciate them. Do you like Zoya polishes? Have you found a 5 free polish that lasts without chipping?
