Favorite Brand - Zoya

I've been "collecting" nail polish for about a year now and am kinda scared to count the number of bottles I have now, because it seems like it will be an excessive amount considering it's only been a year.  My son, who's 5 yrs old, said just the other day to daddy, "Mommy wants to cover the whole world in nail polish, doesn't she?".  I think that's a sign I've gone a little off the deep end.....?

Well, no matter, because all those little bottles of pretty colors/finishes make me happy, and if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!!  :-)

The brand that makes me happiest is Zoya.  I think, though I can't say for 100% sure, that my first bottle of Zoya was Natty, a gorrrrrrgeous navy blue that's one of my go-to colors whenever I'm stumped on what to put on my nails.

(Clearly the above pic was taken before I discovered the concept of "clean up"!)
This is Natty topped with Sinful Colors Frenzy, a really pretty topper in small powder blue and pinky purple glitters.

Since Natty was love at first application, I became a goner for any and all Zoyas.  I did a rough count the other day and I think I have about 50 of their colors now.  Yikes.  But they're soooo worth it.  Even the colors I didn't love on my skin tone (and have been put in the swap pile) have wonderful formulas and were a breeze to apply.  My only teeny tiny complaint is that they're not as easily available in the retail world, but ( runs so many awesome promotions throughout the year that it's pretty easy to purchase online.

I also love that their polishes are 5-free and that it's a Cleveland-based company.  I got married in Cleveland and my dad and stepmom lived there for a long time, so I have a soft spot for any and all Cleveland things.  CLEVELAND ROCKS, yo!  ;-)

So here are some random Zoya spam photos for ya, check 'em out after the jump:

Thanks to a local beauty supply closing one of their locations, 
I was able to complete the Mirrors collection, which is one of my faves.  
I love dusty, shimmery colors and every color in Mirrors is right up my alley.

That's it for today, thanks for looking!!


  1. I love Zoya too! They have the most fun colors and one of the best formulas! :)
