Zoya’s Crusade against Artificial Nail Products:

Since 1993, Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments has provided quality, long-wearing formulations that are free of potentially toxic ingredients. Here’s how the battle against artificial and toxic products was won… 


As owner of the country’s first Natural Nail and Skin Spa and armed with relevant information on potential health hazards, Zoya Reyzis was resolute to create a new line of quality professional products that would meet her exacting specifications. Pregnant at the time, she enlisted the aid of her Chemist Husband, Michael Reyzis, to develop toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate free formulations that would provide extended wear on natural nails making Zoya the first to develop a “Big 3 Free” formula of nail polish. In the years since the birth of the brand, the commitment to providing safe and effective products has soldiered on with Zoya once again leading the way with the removal of formaldehyde resins and camphor to create the first “Big 5 Free” nail polish brand.

Find the Zoya Naturel Nail Polish Collection and over 300 stunning BIG5FREE* Zoya colors onwww.zoya.comEach and every color has a name as unique as the women who inspired it.
*Formula is completely free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene and camphor.

Holiday Nail Art Challenge--Holiday Memories

NailPolishCanada.com has been a favorite source for polish and other nail art materials for years. They have also proven themselves as blogger friendly through a variety of their PR ventures. One such venture is their annual Holiday Nail Art Challenge. It's just for fun and is a great way to share and get new ideas for holiday nail art.

Week three's theme is HOLIDAY MEMORIES.
Some of my favorite holiday memories have to do with family traditions. One such tradition is picking out and decorating the tree, so I tried to channel this by using a plain green cream as well as using a sparkly textured green. I really fell in love with this manicure.

SinfulColors Mirror Metallics--Gold Medal

The Mirror Metallics nail polish collection from SinfulColors features seven sparkling shades guaranteed to steal the spotlight. Infused with sensuous shimmer, these luminous tints will light up your holiday celebration. 

I was sent 4 of these metallics to try out, Blue Steel, Triple Platinum, Simply Silver, and Gold Medal. All four of these metallics had the same metallic formula. Finally, I have a classic metallic for you in Gold Medal.
Gold Medal is "a  golden, glimmery goddess."

The Verdict:
This, as well as the other Mirror Metallics, dried pretty quickly and applied nicely. As with many metallics, there were visible brush strokes after application and drying. They are not as visible as a frosted finish, and were more visible in some of the polish hues. These also appear as more of a brushed metal rather than a mirrored metal, but they're still lovely:)

Gold Medal is the perfect gold. It is not too yellowed or brassy and will flatter most skin tones. The photo above shows 2 easy coats. This was only slightly streaky, but can be easily overlooked because this golden goddess GLOWS. If you need/want a lovely gold look no further than this affordable neutral gold. This might just be my favorite gold because it is so flattering.

SinfulColors Mirror Metallics, $1.99 exclusively at Walgreens for Holiday 2013.

SinfulColors Mirror Metallics--Simply Silver

The Mirror Metallics nail polish collection from SinfulColors features seven sparkling shades guaranteed to steal the spotlight. Infused with sensuous shimmer, these luminous tints will light up your holiday celebration. 

I was sent 4 of these metallics to try out, Blue Steel, Triple Platinum, Simply Silver, and Gold Medal. All four of these metallics had the same metallic formula. Today it's the standard silver Simply Silver.
Simply Silver is "a sparkling ornamental shade of silver."

The Verdict:
This, as well as the other Mirror Metallics, dried pretty quickly and applied nicely. As with many metallics, there were visible brush strokes after application and drying. They are not as visible as a frosted finish, and were more visible in some of the polish hues. These also appear as more of a brushed metal rather than a mirrored metal, but they're still lovely:)

Simply Silver is a very white, untarnished silver metallic. It brightens your manicure and gives it just the right amount of flash. This is sure to be a holiday staple and will work beautifully as both a solid manicure or as nail art. The two coats above applied rather smoothly, but brush strokes were still visible. Still a beautiful polish and if you don't have a silver get this one before it's gone!

SinfulColors Mirror Metallics--Triple Platinum

The Mirror Metallics nail polish collection from SinfulColors features seven sparkling shades guaranteed to steal the spotlight. Infused with sensuous shimmer, these luminous tints will light up your holiday celebration. 

I was sent 4 of these metallics to try out, Blue Steel, Triple Platinum, Simply Silver, and Gold Medal. All four of these metallics had the same metallic formula. Next up I have the purple-y Triple Platinum.
Triple Platinum is "a light shade of lilac tinted with tinsel." Photo shows 2 coats.

The Verdict:
This, as well as the other Mirror Metallics, dried pretty quickly and applied nicely. As with many metallics, there were visible brush strokes after application and drying. They are not as visible as a frosted finish, and were more visible in some of the polish hues. These also appear as more of a brushed metal rather than a mirrored metal, but they're still lovely:)

Triple Platinum was a touch on the streaky side, but the lovely lilac toned platinum makes up for it. I love the softness of this metallic color, it's just enough to command attention while staying classy. It's a nice twist on a traditional platinum shade. Definitely an excellent, affordable choice for all purple polish lovers!

SinfulColors Mirror Metallics--Blue Steel


The Mirror Metallics nail polish collection from SinfulColors features seven sparkling shades guaranteed to steal the spotlight. Infused with sensuous shimmer, these luminous tints will light up your holiday celebration. 

I was sent 4 of these metallics to try out, Blue Steel, Triple Platinum, Simply Silver, and Gold Medal. All four of these metallics had the same metallic formula. First up, I have the cool, denim-like Blue Steel.
Blue Steel is "a brilliant blue gush of gift-wrap."

The Verdict:
This, as well as the other Mirror Metallics, dried pretty quickly and applied nicely. As with many metallics, there were visible brush strokes after application and drying. They are not as visible as a frosted finish, and were more visible in some of the polish hues. These also appear as more of a brushed metal rather than a mirrored metal, but they're still lovely:)

I love the pigmentation of Blue Steel, I did 2 coats in the above photo. This color is perfect for the holidays. It would be lovely with a silver or glitter gradient or even some snowflakes painted on top. While it is not the most unique color, it's cheaper than most other polishes that make a similar color. Blue lovers, this one is for you. BONUS: this one had minimal brushstrokes visible, what you see in the photo is what you get:)

Thanksgiving Manicure--Art Deco

The holidays are that time of year when we see family more and want to look our best. Whether your upcoming holiday festivities are casual or formal, I have a few nail art ideas to help you plan that Thanksgiving Manicure!

I channeled my inner glamour to create a subtly stunning manicure. I chose none other than Art Deco as an inspiration. Art Deco has been very present in designs over the past year so it seemed like the perfect inspiration.
This is the most formal Thanksgiving manicure I created. You could easily change up the colors to match or compliment a party dress. And with a little striping tape, this was a breeze.

*Later I added a black rhinestone to my pinkie and index finger near the cuticle, unfortunately I forgot to take a picture*

Polishes Used: Barielle Gold Digger, OPI Spark de Triomphe, and Zoya Edyta

Thanksgiving Manicure--Texture and Typography

The holidays are that time of year when we see family more and want to look our best. Whether your upcoming holiday festivities are casual or formal, I have a few nail art ideas to help you plan that Thanksgiving Manicure!

Today I have a manicure that mixes 3 different textures/finishes to create a fun and festive manicure. I used a combination of metallic, glitter, and matte polishes to create dimension and interest. Once that was done, I added some typography with a sharpie to give a specific nod to the holiday.
 This manicure bridges the gap between a casual and formal affair. And your nails will be the envy of all around. To personalize this you could write specifics of what you are thankful for this year.

Polishes Used: Tuff Scent Wisdom, SinfulColors Leather Loose, Barielle Gold Digger

Thanksgiving Manicure--Tribal

The holidays are that time of year when we see family more and want to look our best. Whether your upcoming holiday festivities are casual or formal, I have a few nail art ideas to help you plan that Thanksgiving Manicure!

Today I have a simple tribal inspired manicure. The design on my accent nails was inspired by traditional Wampanoag dress. I chose to keep this manicure rather neutral to continue to emulate the design.
 This rather simple design is casual yet classy. It works with that neutral cable knit sweater for dinner and with your jersey for the game.

Playing with Polish-- My First Striping Tape Manicure

So a while back I got striping tape for the first time (crazy, right?). I sat there staring at it trying to decide what to do first. I decided to use it as painting guides for a chevron design on a well-worn manicure. This was simple and ended up turning out pretty well. I am still trying to get the hang of placing striping tape, making sure it sticks well on the edges, and removing it at the perfect time.
Not too shabby for the first try at using striping tape to help with nail art. I would love more ideas or suggestions for using striping tape. Thanks, loves!

SinfulColors Leather Luxe: Leather Loose

One last new release from SinfulColors. I know that many of you may be over both the textured and the matte trend, but remember that you can always add a topcoat! This next polish might even make those of you who are not fans of this trend think twice about writing off this finish. 
Leather Loose is a "safari sinful brown." It took two easy coats of this matte polish for an even, opaque nail. Again, this formula dried quickly, but not so quickly that it impeded application.

The Verdict:
This was ultimately my favorite polish out of the Crystal Crush and Leather Luxe polishes that I tried. I love the richness of the brown base juxtaposed with the glowing, ember-like, bronze shimmer. This polish is gorgeous matte and I am sure is stunning with a topcoat. I love how unique this matte polish is and I wish that more of the polishes from this line contained shimmer. Nonetheless, go pick this one up it is just beautiful!

The Leather Luxe collection is described as "a texture rich, trend-setting collection of stylish matte finish nail polish shades which are richly pigmented to provide a flirtatious way to flaunt your style.  The Leather Luxe Collection features eight weather-warming shades with leather-inspired finishes."

SinfulColors Leather Luxe Collection is available exclusively at Walgreens for Fall 2013. Each polish retails for $1.99.

SinfulColors Leather Luxe: Whipped

Along with the Crystal Crush polishes I received from SinfulColors, I also received polishes from their other new line, Leather Luxe. Leather Luxe is described as "a texture rich, trend-setting collection of stylish matte finish nail polish shades which are richly pigmented to provide a flirtatious way to flaunt your style.  The Leather Luxe Collection features eight weather-warming shades with leather-inspired finishes." Today I have the scandalous Whipped to share with you.
Whipped is a "beguiling black." This polish applied smoothly in two easy coats and dried quickly, but not so quickly that it was difficult to work with.

The Verdict:
Many people love the matte polish trend, but it can be difficult to find a matte polish that is truly matte and not just a satin finish. This polish is truly a matte nail polish. It is in a classic, black creme and would serve as a staple in any polish collection. This would be perfect to combine with my favorite glossy black, SinfulColors Black on Black for a mixed texture manicure. I would love to use this with a glossy black french tip. This would also be perfect for back-to-school as a chalkboard manicure. The possibilities are endless. If you don't already own a black matte polish, I highly recommend this almost-one-coat polish.

SinfulColors Leather Luxe Collection is available exclusively at Walgreens for Fall 2013. Each polish retails for $1.99.

SinfulColors Crystal Crushes: Emerald Envy

Yesterday I shared SinfulColors Ruby Mine from the Crystal Crushes Collection for Fall 2013. SinfulColors describes this collection as "a brilliant collection of gem-inspired nail polish shades with multifaceted 3D texture. Gorgeous matte colors flecked with a reflective pearl finish sure to dazzle your digits and make your heart skip a beat.  The Crystal Crushes collection features eight vivid shades sprinkled with an angel dust finish." 

Today I have another beauty from this collection to share, Emerald Envy. 
Emerald envy is described as a "glint of green."

The Verdict:
I tried this polish after trying Ruby Mine, so I knew to be more careful when applying this thick/thin polish. I applied 2 thin coats to achieve this look. The pigmentation on this was to die for! It was almost a one-coater! Again, the gold shimmer was a beautiful compliment to this bright emerald green. If these two lovelies are any indication of how the rest of the collection is and you love the texture trend, RUN to your nearest Walgreens. 

The SinfulColors Crystal Crush polishes retail for $2.99 at Walgreens for fall 2013.

SinfulColors Crystal Crushes: Ruby Mine

The texture trend is still going strong and continues to find its way into nail polish collections, from higher-end to drugstore brands. Every brand has its own take on the texture trend incorporating glitter, flecks, metallics, or matte finishes. It is kind of fun to see how they all have a different twist.

This being said, SinfulColors recently debuted its Crystal Crushes, their own line of texture polishes. I love the colors in their range. There are a bunch of vibrant, jewel-toned texture polishes in this collection. Here is the first one that I was sent, Ruby Mine.
SinfulColors describes Ruby Mine as a "ravishing red." The company refers to the Crystal Crush collection as "a brilliant collection of gem-inspired nail polish shades with multifaceted 3D texture. Gorgeous matte colors flecked with a reflective pearl finish sure to dazzle your digits and make your heart skip a beat.  The Crystal Crushes collection features eight vivid shades sprinkled with an angel dust finish."

The Verdict:
The formula on this was a bit odd. It was thick, due to the shimmer and texture particles, yet watery. It applied nicely in two coats. Next time I use this I will err on the thin side for my coats, wiping more polish off the brush before applying. I thin the brush grabbed more polish than I expected, which was user error. The pigmentation on this was beautiful. I adore the gold shimmer in this polish, it compliments the beautiful ruby hue nicely. These texture polishes differ from others that I have tried because they are not completely matte also the texture is more subtle, yet still noticeable. I recommend these polishes to anyone who wants to try this trend. The color range of these is amazing, go out and snag them before they're gone!

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary...

Yes, lovelies, I created a manicure inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's well-known poem, The Raven. I think this is a very classy way to wear "Halloween Nails" without being too grotesque or juvenile. If you've never read this poem (or the Tell Tale Heart) it is a great, seasonal read. In the poem the mysterious bird repeats "nevermore" as the narrator wrestles with himself. I chose to focus on the eerie message of the raven and use the bird's words as inspiration. Since I am no expert in the field of nail art, I chose to keep it as simple as possible. Here is my take on this haunting poem...
I have to admit, I really love this look despite it having no semblance of a bird. Maybe some day when I have a steadier hand I will be able to create a silhouette of a raven. Until then, this is as good as it gets. I think I will have to recreate this for Halloween, perhaps replacing Dahlia with Dhara:)
Polishes used: Zoya Purity, Dahlia, and Claudine (CONFESSION: I used a Sharpie to write the word "Nevermore")

Jewel-Toned Stained Glass

This autumn rich, jewel tones are everywhere. I must admit that I adore this trend. Jewel tones favor my complexion and are very flattering on me. Due to the fact that many polish brands have a bunch of this gorgeous tones in their polishes, it has made choosing a polish to wear ridiculously difficult. So what is better than deciding? Why, wearing all at once of course!
I created this lovely stained glass manicure using beautiful, glowing jewel inspired shades. After painting my middle and ring finger nails black I let the polish dry before dividing my nail into random sections using striping tape as painters tape. I then randomly painted the sections with beautiful metallic colors. Before the polish dried, I removed the tape. After it dried, I applied a clear topcoat to level it out. To avoid too much darkness in this manicure, I painted the rest of my nails with a beautiful textured polish.
I like this and think it adds a bit of flair to an otherwise boring autumn manicure. Besides, I was able to wear all the polishes that I could not decide between:) How do you wear jewel tones?

Polishes used: SinfulColors Black on Black and Zoya nail polishes in Mason, Neve, Channing, Giovanna, and Tomoko

Sugar Skull Inspired

This manicure draws inspiration from the Mexican holiday el Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead). This early November celebration somehow makes death and dying a beautiful celebration full of bright colors and flowers. Sugar skulls personify these festivities to me. Here is my festive, colorful rendition...
This manicure was fun and very random. It is one of those things that you probably cannot recreate because you just made it up as you went. The whimsy of this is that no two will be the same (my two hands looked different). While this looks complex, it was rather simple in its execution.
What do you think about this bright, festive manicure?

Spooky Trees

Today's festive fall manicure is simple and straightforward. I love seeing autumn trees covered with colorful leaves, however that beauty does not last forever. Eventually the leaves fall off, giving way to trees that beckon toward the winter sky. These spooky trees were the inspiration for my manicure.
While this may not be my most favorite manicure, I really loved the combination of essie Bobbing for Baubles and Bad Ass Polish Dusk. It also made me rekindle my love for essie Bobbing for Baubles. Dusk adds some light and beauty to the manicure while creating mystery and intrigue.

Do you have a favorite topper that adds more character to manicures, like Dusk did for this manicure?

Festive Fall Leaves

As mentioned on facebook, this week I will be sharing some festive fall manicures. Today I am sharing an easy manicure featuring my favorite characteristic of autumn, colorful leaves!
This quick, easy nail art has a gilded, flakie accent nail and another of abstract leaf shapes. These shorties got many compliments when I wore this manicure about a month ago. It was a fun way to dress up a metallic manicure for fall.

Polishes Used: Sally Hansen Gilty Party, Zoya nail polish in Maria Luisa, Channing, Chita, and Dhara.

Zoya Zenith Collection

Press Samples
Will I have the right words to express the wonder and beauty contained in these elegant glass bottles? Probably not, but I will try...

Zoya created another Winter/Holiday collection that contains a variety of finishes/formulas. There are jelly polishes with holographic flecks, a metallic, polishes with fine metallic glitter flecks, and even a tinted jelly packed with color-shifting bar and teeny glitter pieces. It is a collection that is sure to wow everyone, despite the lack of a red for a holiday collection. 
Many other bloggers said it is nice to see barely any trace of red or green in the Zenith Collection. I agree to a certain extent, but I also always love a new red or green polish with a new twist. On the other hand, it is nice for those who celebrate Hanukkah to have a collection that falls into the color wheel of the holiday celebration. Without further delay, let's browse the beauties...




Seraphina is a "Polaris silver metallic." She is an ethereal platinum hue with fine glittery, foil flecks that are more of a white gold color than silver. It took 2-3 coats to reach opacity with Seraphina, some areas were patchy. 




Cassedy, described as a "celestial pewter metallic," is packed with fine glittery, silver, foil flecks. This pewter shade has the slightest tinge of green in its dark, metallic charcoal base. The above photo shows 2 easy coats.




Belinda, a "cosmic purple metallic," is the only true metallic in the collection. She is a rich, dark, royal purple hue with fine metallic flecks of cobalt and magenta. The above swatch shows 2 streak-free, easy coats.




Payton is a "galactic cranberry with holographic glitter." Cranberry really is the perfect descriptor of this polish. This jelly polish is packed with holographic glitter pieces that are prismatic in almost any lighting. The above photographs feature 2 coats. I let the polish dry between coats due to its squishy nature.




Dream, a "deep space blue with holographic glitter," is one of the most raved about and anticipated colors from this collection. This bright, navy blue, jelly has holographic glitter that likes to appear as icy shards unless they are kissed by sunlight. The above swatch shows two coats (you must let the polish dry between coats to avoid dragging) and left NO staining on my nails!




Mosheen is described by Zoya as an "astro ice blue topper." This clear, light blue base is packed full of miniature bar and glitter in a beautiful iridescent iciness. Above it is shown as an accent nail with Dream. The accent nail is one coat of Dream with two easy coats of Mosheen.




The Verdict:
I adore the nod to astronomy in this collection. I took an astronomy course in college and loved it (probably the only physics class I would ever willingly take). The variety of finishes in this collection, along with the colors, make it something special. I love the flawless application of these and the rich pigmentation. My favorites are Payton, Seraphina, and Belinda. I think everyone should be able to find at least a little something to tickle their fancy in this collection.
