"If so, I have a color for your nail polish arsenal collection, my fellow beauties! It's Cynthia from the Smoke Collection by Zoya. For your "Moody Blues" Cynthia is an out of the ordinary blue nail polish that will satisfy your desire for a wintery color."
"Overall: I am LOVING this set! I will admit that when you look at the bottles and the pictures, it seems to be a minor difference in the colors but on your nails they are DEFINITELY distinguishable! Kristen is my absolute favorite (so much so that I am wearing a mani with her right now!), with Avery being my “least” favorite but only because I don’t wear nudes very often. However, if I DID wear nudes I would love this one."
"The formula for these were excellent. They were very creamy and applies so smooth. They are also opaque with just two coats. The colors are pretty and not your average dark winter colors which I like!" Nail Fanatic

"When I first laid eyes on the new Winter 2011 collection from Zoya, I thought, “Pastels? What?” I’m used to darker colors in the Winter and usually I can’t stand pastels. But, when I tried them on – wow! These are no Easter eggs. The colors are sexy, high fashion and different. I got several compliments from strangers while wearing them."
"These colors are beautiful. I really love them all. If I had to chose I'd say Kristen, Carey and Kennedy are my favorites. If cooler toned skin and have had difficulty finding a nice nude shade, Kennedy will be for you. I absolutely love this color for that reason. I feel like it filled a void in my collection! There are too many warm toned nudes out there..." Imperfectly Painted

"As far as quality, it doesn't disappoint at all, even the colors I personally don't care for have that perfect Zoya formula I love so much."
Zoya Nail Polish names all of it's fabulous colors after women who inspire us and here is a sweet video that gives you a peak into the meanings of the Zoya Smoke and Mirrors Nail Polish collection names.
Everything Baby Names - a site focusing on unique Baby Names and their meanings noticed Zoya for our interesting nail polish naming philosophy.
Developed by our founder, Zoya Reyzis, the idea to name polishes after women grew as she developed a new line of healthy, toxin free*, long-wearing nail polishes. She wanted each color to be strong and independent like the women she admired
Today, we continue on with that wonderful tradition and welcome the input of our fans. If you have a name idea for Zoya, contact us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/zoyanailpolish). The Zoya Fairies (aka staffers) keep a "wall of names" with all the suggestions for future naming sessions.

The Coveteur feature on Rachel Zoe also happens to put a Hollywood Star on Zoya and Qtica - check out the image of Rachel's oft visited and famed RZ nail polish rack here.
"The rumors are true—I have a full-on nail polish rack in my office! Each season, I get sent the latest shades to consider for The ZOE Report and ZOE Beautiful and they needed a proper home. I love the assortment of statement cocktail rings mixed in - because what goes better with a perfect mani than a blinged out hand?"
We spy Zoya Armor, Zoya Anchor, Zoya Fast Drops, Zoya Renew, the entire Zoya Summertime collection and a few of her beloved deep reds (including Zoya Nail Polish in Riley - a deep, rich red nail polish that she wears all the time).
Perhaps the only ones with more color than this are the Zoya Nail Polish fairies themselves (unfortunately, we can't say the same for our shoe closet - sooooooo Jelly!!!)
Zoya Nail Polish had the pleasure to sponsor the Spring/Summer 2012 presentation of the RZ Collection during NYFW. Trust us - Team Rachel really knows nail polish.
"Anja (Zoya Smoke Collection) is best described as " A rich, deep, vampy red-toned wine purple with a glossy creme finish." I love vampy reds, so I really love Anja. She is much richer than she looked in the bottle. I'll definitely be getting a lot of use from this polish."
"Yara (Zoya Mirrors Collection) is best described as "A medium smoky olive drab with an illuminating splash of bright gold glitter." This color was one of my most anticipated shades from the Mirrors set and it exceeded my expectations. As much as I love Dree (from the Smoke collection), I love Yara even more! This is probably my favorite olive polish ever."
Well this sums it up pretty well, if you love vampy nail polish and green nail polish Zoya has a few awesome options in the Smoke and Mirrors Collections to try!
Twenty-four big, bold, beautiful swatches* - It's like changing your Zoya Nail Polish on the hour! Nail Polish swatches don't come much better than this...
"Here are the swatches of 24 Zoya's, I hope they will help you to narrow your order down ;-) (or create new lemmings lol)" The Lacquerista
Note one of our Holiday Must Have's - Zoya Delilah, shown with and without a top coat. This is a great sparkly red nail polish. It also works as a great layering polish to add a bit of glam to any existing red cream shades like Sooki or Carmen.
It's time to cuddle up with a cup of cocoa and enjoy a warm fire in the company of a dreamy friend (wink, wink). The new winter cream neutrals of the Zoya Feel Collection are the most romantic colors of the season. Add in the long-wearing, full coverage formula and you may just want to be snowed in for a few fun days!
Swatches and reviews of this new Zoya Nail Polish collection are everywhere online... here are a few that we love.
"The Feel collection consists of 6 neutral cremes that are perfect for the winter season. I love a good creme polish and Zoya never fails to disappoint me in this area..."
"This color (Zoya Carey) is just gorgeous. I have always been in the dark, deep color family where my nails are concerned, but this collection is just beautiful. I definitely see myself wearing this color again. With the smooth as silk application, you can't go wrong with Zoya :)" Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom
"Absolutely love this Winter Neutral Cream Collection (Feel) from Zoya! The colors are smart, sophisticated, very close to natural. For me, the stoplight red lacquered nail screams imitation and the glittery polishes look left over from Halloween. These colors, on the other hand, look assured, chic plus they’re uber flattering to hands."
Get gilded, go golden - Zoya has a version of gold that will work for you!
Gold Nail Polish can be a bit tricky to wear but when you find the right one - it's well - Golden!
Here are a few tips from the Color Experts at Zoya... Lighter skin toned ladies may prefer a pink or nude based shade like Buffy, Hermina, Lauren or Dulcinea. Darker skin tones may like a coppery gold such as Amber, Penny, Colette or Jinx. For a truly golden and bold look, you can go all out with Jules, Austine, Richelle or Goldie. Zoya Glimmer is also a great option for any skin tone since it is slightly sheer and gives just a hint of gold.The final look is yours to choose - with so many color choices from Zoya, one is sure to be yours!
So take advantage of the Zoya Color Spoon (the perfect to try color before you buy it) and order a set of golds today to find "your" gold nail polish.
Gold Nail Polish by Zoya...
Zoya Glimmer (sheer gold topcoat - add gilded sparkle to any color).
"We've suggested so many glitters and golds to you this holiday that I wanted to find something a bit different. This one--Jem by Zoya (shown here)-- does have flecks of pink sparkle, which glisten when you're in sunlight and when you look closely at your nails..."
"Today I applied Zoya's Trixie Nail Polish to my nails which is one of their best selling polishes. This polish is truly amazing, it is a metallic silver with a foil finish. It looks amazing on both your finger and toe nails as it really stands out. The foil-like finish gives you the effect of nail wraps but without the tricky application!"
