#6 My Top Ten Nail Polish Brand ~ Zoya

Posted on: October 4, 2012

I often get asked what is the best brand of nail polish. Because of that, I have been working all summer on comparing different brands of nail polish. I compared over 28 brands of nail polish, all available in the US. Meaning this comparison of brands does not include any Barry M or other brands only available in the UK. I scored the different brands using these 5 items of criteria: brush/bottle, formula, price, dry time, and wear. These are the items that are important to me in a nail polish. When I was finished there were 3 brands that had all 5/5 stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

#6 on my list is Zoya. This is my favorite Zoya polish, Lotus. Lotus is a purple cream with a little silver shimmer and tons of copper micro-glitter. I love this polish. It is stunning in the daylight!

Ashley by Zoya. This maroon cream is beautiful yet mysterious, just like my girl Ashley. There is a charcoal stripe running through the maroon cream that translate onto the nail perfectly.

Drew by Zoya. Of course Drew is my favorite son of all time so this polish by Zoya is also a favorite. It’s a pretty rose-y mauve with a silver shimmer. I thinks it’s very pretty.

Lara by Zoya is just a pretty cream pink. So pretty. I wore this one a lot throughout spring and summer.

Toni, this is a new polish from their A/W 2012 collection. I love this deep maroon color. This is just one coat, no top coat. I’m sure I will wear this so much this coming winter!

Evvie. This is also new from the A/W 2012 collection. The first time I saw this in promos I fell in love with the deep dark green, with a gray cast to it. I think it is stunning! One of the things I like about Zoya and shopping with them on-line is they categorize their polish not only by color ranges but tones. Like me, I need a cool tone polish to go with my skin. A warm tone polish just doesn’t cut it, I never like a warm tone polish and usually end up giving them away. But at Zoya you don’t have to guess because they lay it all out for you. They designate the opacity as well. Zoya also allows you to shop by collection or color. If you are looking for a red polish, they have you covered. If you know you want something from the Gossip collection, you’re set. It really is easy to shop with them online.

LC and Lo from the Gossip collection. LC is on the left. Zoya has a program called “Share the Love” which allows you to collect points. You can keep your points as long as you want and then use them for promotions, or you can use them any time. Right now the only promotion they have when you redeem your points is for free shipping with 75 points. When you create an account they give you 100 points. If you haven’t created an account yet, go to Zoya here to get the points added to your account. This is a “Share the Love” link. I really do like the way Zoya has made shopping with them online very easy. I have not purchased a polish from Zoya that when I got it home I did not like. Very unusual for me! Ha! πŸ’…

This is my little Zoya collection. Not a lot but a lot of variety. My Zoya nail polish makes me happy!
Zoya got 4/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟 in my comparison study and lost out on a price star only. Every other aspect of this brand was perfect! Zoya priced out at $16 an ounce. ($15 was the cut off for a star)

πŸ’… this is the bottom 5 of my top 10 list. Stay tuned for the top 5 coming up. Any surprises? Let me know what you think of my ratings so far. I cannot wait to get to #1, I think you will be surprised! I know I was!. Hee Hee! πŸ’…

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
