Oxblood Red Nail Polish - The color of now by Zoya!

Oxblood Nail Polish- a down brownish red to brownish plum...
Way more vampy than old school maroon and richer than the average plum, oxblood has a unique feel all it's own. Legions of the fashionable have worn oxblood as a stylish neutral over the centuries but this recent rebirth of the color adds a bit of street intensity and badness to any good girl look. Many "oxbloody varietals" from Zoya Nail Polish assure that the perfect version awaits...

Try our newest oxblood red cream shade Zoya Nail Polish in Toni or any one of the following gorgeous colors to get the look; Stacy, Sam, Ashley, Norra or Anastasia.

Also available, Zoya Katherine - a beautiful, buildable tinted jelly gloss formula (originally created for Fashion Designer Peter Som) that can be worn as a sheer wash, built (2-4 coats) to a more intense shade or layered over other colors to create unique "I made it myself" nail polish looks.

Visit the Zoya Nail Polish Oxblood Red page for a complete listing of long-wearing, toxin free nail trend colors.

All $8.00 (US)

Swatch and Learn Gets All "Dauled" Up!

Looking for a nail polish shade that stands out of the crowd? Look no further. Swatch and Learn gives a full review and swatches the stunning Zoya Nail Polish in Daul...
"Daul by Zoya is has a reflective purple base, and there’s purple and golden glitter. If this polish were a horse, it’d be a show horse that gets the first-place ribbon.

And if this polish were a girl, it would be one decked out in a tutu and tiara, spinning around with a huge grin on her face as she performs a dance in front of relatives.

This polish fights for your undivided attention, but it doesn’t have to fight for long because it’s like the supermodel of polishes."

Full review and additional swatches from Love for Lacquer here

"I love this collection. Who doesn't like jellies right?! They are really shiny. I can't pick my favorite because I love them all. If you want to wear them without visible nail line showing you must at least apply 4 coats."
Nails Beautiqued

Full review and additional swatches from Nails Beautiqued here

"Katherine - sheer eggplant jelly. This jelly is so gorgeous! I love the shade, the formula and the finish! i have a soft spot for vampy shades and when they are jelly that's just perfection! I'm wearing 4 coats in the pictures and Katherine was fully opaque. The third coat is good enough but as you will see the fourth coat adds the depth and darkness of the shade."
