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.

Polishes used: Zoya Hunter and Chita

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--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:)
