Zoya Polish – My review!


I had never heard of Zoya before receiving a goody bag in the mail.  I was like a 9 year old girl on Christmas morning when I opened the package, because I had been sent not only 12 amazing nail polishes but also the Color Lock System Kit.  I immediately sat down at my table – and went to town.  I tried on almost every color (10 to be exact :)) and sat back and admired my work.  Before applying the fingernail polish, I applied their Anchor Basecoat.  I then applied the Armor Topcoat after the polish, and topped it off with the Hurry Up Speed Dry Drops.  My nails looked like they had been professionally done.  I’m not even kidding, I couldn’t stop staring at them!

The colors are amazing; rich and bright!  They really look the same on my nail as they do in the bottle, and you know how sometimes that’s hard to find!  I only needed to apply one coat – that’s how amazing the polish really is! 


I love the handy Color Lock System Kit.  I use it absolutely everytime I paint my nails.  It has everything you need -and is worth EVERY PENNY!

My love affair with Zoya.


I rarely ever wear polish on my finger nails, I love how it looks but I hate that by sundown on the second day of wear I have major chip issues. When I was younger I would try all different brands and topcoats only to get chips or wear at the nail ends within a day or two.

Once I had kids I just gave up painting my finger nails, with the constant hand washing and cleaning it would be impossible to keep polish on my nails right? Wrong! After Zoya offered us a special MakeHerUp trio I decided to order some myself. I painted my toes and was happy enough but one color I had ordered (Casey) was dying to be on my fingers. So last Sunday I decided to get wild and crazy and paint my fingernails. Well here I am half way through Thursday and my polish still looks amazing, 5 days later!.

I am a Zoya convert they really do have the longest lasting nail polish if you have yet to try it don’t put it off. They just might make you want to paint your finger nails again.

Viewer Review: Looking for Holiday nail polish?


Thanks to Makeherup reader Clare for the great review!

Green With Envy

With the holidays coming up, I was all set to show off my Christmas cheer with a trip to my manicurist and a fresh coat of NARS Zulu nail polish. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t act quick enough and Sephora is completely sold out and unsure if they will be able to re-stock in time for Christmas to meet the demand. I was devastated, but not as devastated as I was when I learned my treasured bottle of OPI-Jasper Park (now discontinued) was lost somewhere between London and Paris on a Christmas European vacation. So if you’re like me and you need finger-ly Christmas décor, have no fear, Zoya comes bearing gifts.

Zoya’s “Suvi” is an enchanting emerald green with just a hint of shimmer for some holiday glam. You better stock up now because it seems that quality green nail polish comes and goes as quickly as the holidays.

Zoya Nail Lacquer is sold in professional nail salons and specialty beauty supply stores.
