 press sample

ZOYA NATUREL SATINS
The next generation of Zoya Naturel is almost here! Introducing, Zoya Naturel Satins, a collection of six new, neutral nail polish colors in an ultra-wearable, low-sheen, chic satin finish. A hybrid between matte and glossy polishes, the new Zoya Satin* formula provides opaque coverage and is longer lasting than traditional matte shades. The flawlessly smooth finish hides imperfections and creates a luxurious, satin finish nail look.

Ana: Light toasted almond, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish. I loved this color, it's a great neutral. The color is a good neutral for light skin or tan.


Leah: Lavender tinged taupe, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish. Another great color, I love the lavender tinge in there.

Brittany: Rose mauve cream, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish. Another great, classy color. 


Tove: Misty slate grey, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish. Grey is one of my favorite colors and this one is beautiful and classy color. 



Rowan: Creamy suede taupe, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish. 


Sage: Mossy sage green, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish. This reminds me of that perfect, spa green. It's soothing and pretty. If you've never tried a green nail polish this would be a great one to try!



I love this collection, it is beautiful! The colors are all perfect , easy to wear neutrals. I love the satin finish, it holds up much better than a matte finish and it's a nice twist on some classic neutral colors.
One thing I did find with these is that they apply much better with Zoya Ridge Filler. My nails are a mess from work and winter and the ridge filler made the satin finish look flawless.

This collection is available now for $9 (US), Available in top salons, spas and on Zoya.com

Red and Gold Christmas French with Color Club from Live Love Polish


Sometimes simple and clean is the best! I got two great Color Club colors from Live Love Polish. They are an authorized seller of Color Club which means you get the real deal from them!  

I used Color Club Love Links and Gold Glitter. To do this look I started with clean, bare nails. I took Love Links and painted a triangular french just on my tips. I let it dry then added one coat of Gold Glitter. I topped everything off with Seche Vite. Quick, simple and stunning, perfect for a Christmas party!
