Zoya Ibiza Inspiration

Fall Vibrancy with Zoya Nail Polish 

So going on our list! This maxi skirt grabbed our attention right away since blue is such an alluring color plus this maxi is super cool. German Blogger Thao Nhi Le knows how to impress on the street with style. Zoya Nail Polish in Ibiza is not only a great fall color, but also a beautiful indigo blue that would be a great nail choice to go with this look. Best described as a Blackened indigo-blue brightened slightly by subtle metallic blue shimmer, think of her as the new black for nails. If you love Thao Nhi Le's style, we have compiled a few pieces to recreate it below. Check out more great nail polish shades for fall here

Rolando Santana and Zoya Nail Polish Mani Event

Nail Polish, Cupcakes and Bubbly

What more could a girl want!? Zoya Nail Polish traveled to NYC this week for a very fun event with fashion designer Rolando Santana at his showroom. Guests were invited to indulge in manicures, cupcakes, and champagne while a beautiful model causally strolled though the showroom showcasing a few of Rolando's best looks. Zoya Reyzis, founder of Zoya Nail Polish,  and Rolando Santana casually engaged with a select group of fashion and beauty fans.

Attendees were treated to a complimentary Zoya Nail Bar by lead manicurist Sunshine Outing and her team that provided the SS14 Rolando Santana show look as well as delicious cupcakes from Baked By Melissa! The nail look created for the Rolando Santana SS14 show by Sunshine Outing was a "petal effect" using Zoya Nail Polish in Natasha and Zoya Nail Polish in Sara; both custom colors for the runway collection. Zoya and Rolando spoke to the guests about their inspirations and their collaboration for NYFW SS2014 as well as their life stories. Guests were fascinated by the stories Zoya told about some of her life experiences that brought her to be the woman she is today, and the ladies sitting around her listening were truly in awe. The biggest thing guests took home from this experience was:
"Don't be afraid to experiment, you don't have to ask permission to be who you are". - Zoya Reyzis
Guests also had fun with a nail look contest where they used the Rolando Santana SS2014 Zoya Nail Polish trio in their own variations created on a whim in an effort to win a season of Zoya Color and Treatments! The most creative nail look went to blogger, Princess Polish who received all of the Fall 2013 Zoya collections, a Zoya shirt, and the custom Rolando Santana trio. 

Manicures, cupcakes,socializing, and nail polish was a great way to end a cold Wednesday night in the city! The Rolando Santana SS2014 custom trio is no longer available, however you can find more beautiful floral shades on Learn more about the NYFW SS2014 collaboration with Rolando Santana and Zoya Nail Polish here and see all of the pictures from the event here.

Zoya Talks Color in NAILPRO Magazine

Name That Polish

Ever wonder how your favorite Zoya Nail Polish got her name? Well at this year's Cosmoprof, Zoya Reyzis was there to dish to NAILPRO Magazine on how she started naming all these beauties.

"I started out naming polishes after real fictional people. Subconsciously, with color we are expressing something very, very deep...color becomes a symbol, it becomes a language." Zoya Reyzis in NAILPRO Magazine

So next time you reach for a color that grabs your eye, think about how you feel in that moment.  You might be surprised to find that the nail polish color you choose, imitates your feelings.

Zoya MatteVelvet Nail Polish Redux on All Lacquered Up

Nail Polish Blogger extraordinaire, All Lacquered Up hails the reissue of Zoya MATTEVELVET colors!

"With matte nails making a huge comeback this fall, it’s no surprise that Zoya is digging into their nail polish archives to resurrect the Zoya MatteVelvet lacquers...  - All Lacquered Up

Lucky for all, ALU re-posted her lovely swatches of the returning Zoya MatteVelvets; Dovima (black matte nail polish), Posh (red matte nail polish), Savita (purple matte nail polish) and Veruschuka (green matte nail polish).

Each reissue Zoya MatteVelvet shade is shipped in deluxe black gift box. A Zoya MatteVelvet Jewels trio set; containing Posh, Savita and Veruschuka is also available. Order online now at special pre-order only pricing on Hurry - Supplies are limited!

Special note... If you are new to matte formulations, the issue of drying times and basecoats was addressed in ALU's original Zoya MatteVelvet posting by Leo Reyzis, Art of Beauty VP.

"The film properties of matte formulas are not consistent with the properties of regular polish therefore when one gets applied over the other there is a different rate of drying which causes distortions in the surface tensions of both films, best seen as ridges and valleys that will form on the polish surface (as well infinitely endless drying time). If a basecoat is still desired you must wait for base to dry completely for matte formulas to be applied on top. This may help extend wear however the surface must be completely dry and residue free prior to applying matte formula."  

Zoya GetEven - Ridge Filling BaseCoat is a good choice for use as a matte nail polish base coat.
