People StyleWatch Features Qtica Half Time!

Dry polish faster...

How many times have you gone to walk out the door and noticed your freshly painted manicure is smudged or dented? Is it possible to dry nails super quickly and be on your way in no time, worry free? People StyleWatch says YES!

"Quick-dry drops really work, says celeb manicurist Lisa Logan. They shorten drying time by up to 60%!"  - People StyleWatch

Pro Tip: After applying your base coat, two thin coats of color and a top coat, allow nails to air dry for at least a minute before applying quick-dry drops. Angle nails downward and apply one drop at the cuticle base, allowing it to spread evenly. 

Not only is Zoya Nail Polish's sister brand, Qtica, featured in this month's issue of People StyleWatch - check out this beautiful Zoya Ad! Now, who's ready for some festive (non-smudged) holiday mani-pedis?!

Todos Mis Esmaltes Finds Her Perfect Nude Nail Polish Shade

One nail polish shade every girl should have...

The perfect nude/neutral for her skin tone! Beauty blogger Todos Mis Esmaltes swatches and reviews her perfect nude nail polish shade (AND first Zoya Nail Polish) - the lovely Zoya Nail Polish in Kennedy! See the full review and translation below...

Colección que me encanta en su totalidad, pero por ahora tengo solamente Kennedy. Y es el primer Zoya en mi colección.
I love this collection in its entirety, but for now I only have Kennedy. It's the first Zoya in my collection.
Kennedy es un nude que en la botellita se ve con un tono rosado, pero en mi uñas se ve con tono beige.

Kennedy is a nude that looks like a pink tone in the bottle, but on my nails it has more of a beige tone.

Es un creme pálido fabuloso. Con dos capas logré opacidad total, y tiene un acabado brillante, como ven en las fotos, donde no usé top coat.
It's a fabulous pale creme. I achieved full opacity with two layers, and it has a glossy finish, as seen in the photos, which I did not use top coat.

Es un color suave y neutro, pero no por eso aburrido. Es difícil encontrar el nude adecuado para cada tipo de piel, que no te haga la mano amarillenta, o que parezca sucia...Y con Kennedy encontré mi nude ideas para mi tipo de piel, una perfecta "mannequin manicure"!! 
It is a soft, neutral color, but not so boring. It is difficult to find the right nude for every skin type, that does not make your hand look yellowish, or appear dirty... and with Kennedy I found the ideal nude for my skin type, a perfect "mannequin manicure"!

Y para debutar con esta marca tuve una experiencia buenísima. Me encantó... el color, la fórmúla, todo!"
I had a very good experience with this brand. I loved... the color, the formula, everything!"

all winter long!

REDBOOK Magazine Online makes keeping up with new nail polish trends easy - See Zoya Nail Polish in Rekha featured as a hot new shade perfect for the upcoming holiday season...

"An easy way to beat the cold-weather blues: Paint your nails purple--or crimson, or emerald. Deep colors are it this season."
Kayleigh Donahue

Decorate your nails with more "it" colors for the fall and winter seasons, with the ultra trendy shades from the NYFW 2012: Designer, Diva and Gloss Collections as well as the sparkling beauties from the Holiday & Winter 2012/13 Ornate Collection.


Nail the Look - Purple Chevron French Tip

An easy way to give a french manicure a bit more "pizazz", is to trade in a traditional french manicure shape for a chevron style manicure! An added line of metallic polish separates your tip and base color for more definition

How to Get the Look

Step 1: Paint two coats of Zoya Nail Polish in Suri as a base. 

Step 2: Once dry, paint on the chevron tip with Zoya Nail Polish in Aurora

*Fairy Tip: dab a small amount of Aurora at the center (very end) of the nail and swipe the brush up to that mark - this makes sure the chevron lines are straight and centered. Don't worry about making lines perfect, as the metallic gold chevron line will mask any mistakes.

Step 3: Dip a thin nail art brush (or carefully use the edge of the Zoya brush) in Zoya Nail Polish in Ziv and paint a thin line in between Suri and Aurora.

Step 4:Touch up any mistakes using the nail art brush and top with Zoya Armor Topcoat for a super-shine finish!

Duochrome Delight - Zoya Nail Polish in Gemma

Nail Polish Blogger Top Coat It brings our attention to a very special nail polish shade - Zoya Nail Polish in Gemma! Not just your average green nail polish - this captivating olive hue is playful, yet subtle enough to wear for any occasion, year round. Don't forget to top it off with Zoya Armor Topcoat and let that duochrome finish shiiiiiiiiine... 

"Gemma is a light olive green color with a blue/purple shimmer mixed in.  Despite the fact that green, blue and purple are all cool colors, I think the shimmer warms the green up a bit and softens the shock of a green polish."
Top Coat It
