Nail varnish is one of those beauty products that is so easy to forget that it can actually be full of nasties in those wonderfully colourful little bottles. Truth is, as I mentioned in the Nailberry post, there are quite a few ingredients you want to steer well clear of. Zoya is free from:
- toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, parabens, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, dibutyl phthalate or lead
Lots of long complicated words there I know but trust me you do not want them seeping into your lovely fingers.
I normally shy away from bright colours including red, slightly a bit of a miserable bugger when it comes to bright make up, always stick to my very dark purples, equally deep crimsons but it seemed as good a time as any to step out of the comfort zone. I always use a base coat and a top coat so it is worth bearing this in mind… If you don’t use these, it will change your nail painting life – while also saving time in your year by lasting a lot longer!
Well wow, what can I say, the colour is so vibrant (I applied two layers as I never want gaps). It has lasted longer than any other nail varnish I have worn and still looks great! I am so surprised, not because I ever doubted the company but you never expect such a lengthy wear. It is worth also noting that I tried this out on my toes and not fingers, so it may not be chip free for as long the other way around.
I definitely would recommend this brand and to be honest it is no more expensive than a good chemical based product, with a price tag of £11.70, so I see no reason to why you wouldn’t jump ship for a much safer time. They have a pretty decent colour range and your toes and fingers will be ever so happy!
