I just got my first Zoya polishes! I have only swatched them quickly, but the quality seems very nice. I got Charla and Astra

I am so curious though: Does anyone have an explanation for the exchange special they do? What's in it for them? If it's just a promotion deal, isn't their max of 200 polishes a bit much? Or are they shooting for nail salons to switch over to their brand?

I've only tried Katy so far and it was great in 2 coats. I have several more to try

I just put on Astra! Mega glitter in a gorgeous raspberry jelly base!!! Love it!

Here's a pic. It's two coats over a silver foil I had on. Click for bigger bottle image.

(The orange is Essie Tart Deco and it's more vibrant/almost neon-ish IRL.)

Aaaaah I love this thread! I have so freaking many Zoyas.

I always come back to Drew and Anaka especially! They look great with everything.

I tried my first one today, Bekka:

I love the color, but application was streaky.

oh I was just looking into this brand, how convenient that this thread got bumped!

Can anyone recommend a good nude/skin-tone/natural colour for use with french manicures? I'm hoping for a very natural shade, nothing noticeably pink or peach. Right now I'm using essie's like linen, but I really don't like the essie polishes, other than the colour.

I'm currently considering these three - would love to hear from anyone who's seen them in person!

I have tried some Zoya polishes before and fell in love with the formula, it's just that I haven't really find a shade that I like on my fair & cool skintone...

Here's the only Zoya polish in my stash: Zoya Ivanka!

I am planning to buy Trixie and Zara, but I am still looking for some nice nude/subtle shades.... what about these ...

^^ Love Felicity!! I personally have Melodie and love it. It's a very neutral nude shade, almost looks like foundation but with a silver shimmer. Very unique.

i have MANY zoya polishes (maybe 15 or 20?) and the standouts for me are:

ali - super neon pink
malia - gorgeous true creamy lilac
rhea - metallic slightly dark lilac with hints of gold

zoya polishes are the best bang for the buck when it comes to quality and choice of colors. nearly EVERY polish i've ordered from them has been a great formula.
