Rock Safer Nail Polish Part II


It wasn’t long ago that we gushed over Mineral Fusion’s new safer nail lacquer, and it’s not that we have a short attention span—we just feel compelled to search out other safe polish alternatives. So this week we must confess our love for Zoya’s hot neon nail shades! From left to right we are obsessing over shades Mitzi, Phoebe, and Lolly!

If neon isn’t your thing, don’t fret—Zoya has over 300 shades to choose from. Zoya polish is long-wearing and free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor—Yay! You can pick up a bottle of the sweet lacquer at Whole Foods, Ulta, and several other beauty stores. At $8 a bottle what’s the harm in trying a bold neon hue?

Have you used Zoya polish before? If so let us know what you think!
