Go Nude...

With Your Mani (Silly)

 "When you’re in a rush or you’re heading to an event that calls for a modest, minimal manicure, nude nail polish is your best friends."

Zoya Nail Polish in Corrine gets a vote for best nude nail polish from While we love a bold bright mani, it is OKAY to go nude for a change. It's a softer, more elegant way to go without being TOTALLY naked which is a big no no.

 Orange fever!

From Left to Right - Zoya Nail Polish in Paz, Beatrix, and Arizona
If you are like many others who have recently found yourself completely addicted to Netflix's original series Orange is the New Black, you'll totally get why us Zoya fairies wanted to write a little post inspired by the show. While there could be a huge review of why this show is so great, we'll stick to polish so everyone can review the Netflix hit on their own! This is a compilation of some of our favorite Zoya Nail Polish orange shades along with a few designs, so that you can get your "Orange on". Then, go check out the show, because seriously - it's great.
This look was done using a base of Zoya Nail Polish in Arizona, and for the tip, Zoya Nail Polish in Dhara

 There are so many ways to do accent nails now a days, so this look uses two accents on the middle and ring finger with Zoya Nail Polish in Beatrix. Zoya Nail Polish in Amy is used on the other three fingers.
 Feeling a little spontaneous? Try using Zoya Nail Polish in Pia with a strip of Zoya Nail Polish in Trixie to give it a bit of an edge.
Finally, a more simple look using Zoya Nail Polish in Paz with  an accent nail in Zoya Nail Polish in Purity with a Zoya Nail Polish in Marie Luisa topper.

Wellbis Magazine Tells The Zoya Nail Polish Story!

Have you ever wondered how Zoya Nail Polish was founded? Wellbis, a Croation Magazine, explains how the husband-wife team, Michael and Zoya Reyzis, built the brand up to what it is today. See the English Translation of this article below (via Google Translate). To read a little more about the background of Art of Beauty (Makers of Zoya & Qtica Products) click here
English Translation via Google Translate: 
"Art of Beauty was founded in 1986 by Michael Reyzis. Michael Reyzis had a vision that has evolved from a small nail salon to the spa, with a focus on natural nails, skin care and alternative European herbal treatments. Today the company has grown and become, as they point out, the most innovative manufacturer of professional cosmetics. Zoya, a classical pianist in Russia, was awarded a license for cosmetology when she and her husband Michael immigrated to the United States.

While employment for a pianist was limited, the world cosmetology offered a new profession and a way to build a new career. Zoya, through hard work and the demand for high-quality, healthy, natural ingredients for their customers had come to realize that there is a need for a perfect product.

In response to his wife, Michael, an advanced chemist, developed and patented unique products and anti-wrinkle treatments, shampoos and treatments to regenerate in salons and spas.

He also created the first fast-drying top coat and most durable nail polish; it has made a revolution in paints. Today Zoya, Michael and everyone in AOB created to focus on the highest quality products for professional salons and spas. Through brands like Zoya nail polishes, treatments and Qtica, Qtica Smart Spa, AOB offers salons and spas superior quality, satisfaction and exceptional value.  AOB was the first to remove toxic ingredients such as toluene, formaldehyde and DPB from their formula.  Art of beauty focuses on the health, welfare salons, spas and all consumers."

What’s Your Accent?

Accent Nail
The accent nail (also known as a “party nail”) started a few years back and has taken on a life of it’s own.  When the accent nail was first introduced we saw the trend being used on just the ring finger.
