If you’ve yet to get your fill of purple, this spring’s prince of the color-sphere, feast your eyes on the sweet new shades in Zoya’s Intimate Collection ($7 each; available in six colors).

These make me want to play dress-up…like I should be wearing a floral print dress with sky-high pumps as I sport them on my nails.


And for some reason I can seem them going well with the Laura Mercier’s Silk Road Collection

I only just put these on, so I can’t speak to wear time yet, but the other Zoya polishes I’ve tried resist chips and fading exceptionally well, especially when worn with the Color-Lock System (THE BEST!).

If you’d like give these a try, you can find them online at πŸ™‚

    Oh cool, my faves are Caitlin, Dove and Marley, and I don’t have a lot of the milkier nail colors (more shiny and dark etc). Will definitely check these out! Did you get my part2 e-mail about the Shimmering Facial Whip post? Hope it didn’t go to your spam box again!

    Who’s ready for FRIDAY!!!!????

  4. Tiffany says:

    Jules is calling my name! I don’t think I have any Zoya polishes. Do any stores sell them?

  5. Rachael says:

    Love love love “Dove”!!! Have you found many grey nail polishes that aren’t a shimmer finish?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Rachael,

      For spring, not really. A lot of the lines have been releasing darker grays with shimmer. I loooove this color to pieces, too, btw. πŸ™‚

  6. Flo Augustin says:

    OOOO I must have them all.

  7. Nina says:

  9. Patty says:

    Karen, I am lusting after Caitlin (and possibly Jules) HARD. I have to ask, though: your nails look great, do you use anything to keep them long?

  10. Lala says:

    I’ve never tried Zoya polishes before, but I think that Marley is beautiful. I love pastel colors. Caitlin and Dove are pretty too.

  11. Vanessa says:

    I got in on the 3 free deal at the start of the month and I LOVE Zoya polishes! I have noticed that their creme colors are easier to apply and last longer than the shimmer finishes though. I got six of their polishes and can’t wait to get more!

  12. Meghan says:

    Oh my goodness I never thought to put olive green on my nails, but that color is just BEAUTIFUL!

    I am really liking this collection, and since I don’t have a lot of pastels, these would be great. Really liking dove, marley and gemma ( that olive color yum!). I have a question: is caitlain a grey or a muddier lilaic or slate blue? My eyes are deceiving and I can’t tell or maybe its rad colour that looks different in different lights

  14. Erin says:

    Jules reminds me of Butter London All Hail McQueen. SO pretty!

  15. Nena says:

    I’m not feeling this collection. I got a color plate thing in my most recent Zoya order and the only color I really liked was Danii. Then again, I usually stick to pinks, reds, purples, and blacks. So maybe I just need to branch out lol

  16. SaraJane says:

    How funny. Just a few hours ago I heard of Zoya for the first time when I was surfing the web looking for nail polish that’s safer for pregnant women. I love these colors! I’m definitely going to have to order some. If they ship to Canada, that is.

    • Karen says:

      Hi SaraJane,

      I just checked the site and unfortunately they don’t ship to Canada. πŸ™

      You still might be able to find a nearby salon that carries the line, though, with the Spa & Salon Locator on the Zoya website.

      Good luck!

    • Inday says:

      Hi SaraJane!

      In case it didn’t come up in your search, Scotch Naturals are a fantastic alternative to regular polishes – they’re water-based and toluene, dibutyl phthelate, formaldehyde, acetone, heavy metal free (whew! that was a mouth full!) The formula’s a little on the thin side but it’s completely workable and just give it a little extra time to dry, even with a fast dry topcoat. ships to Canada but you can also try which is based in Canada and perhaps save on shipping fees.

      Hope this helps!

    Danii, Jules, Caitlin & Gemma are beautiful. These colours are so wearable.

  27. Tammy says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Zoya. Definitely in my top 3 favorite nail polish brands (I’m wearing Edyta right now, soooo gorgeous). I can’t wait to get this entire collection.

  28. These are amazing colours. I love Gemma and Caitlin – really different and sophisticated!

  29. Kim says:

    I’m just not feeling the purple (esp with the green and gold) yet. I’m sure I’ll be changing my tune when spring rolls around, though!

    • Karen says:

      I forget sometimes that you live so far away from me and that where you’re at is freezing cold. I feel like we’re neighbors, LOL!

      • Kim says:

        It’s funny you say that, because I felt the same way when I saw the green outside your window in one of the pics last week. My first thought was “this can’t be an older picture from the summer because the polish is new… oh, yeah, California”. πŸ™‚

  30. Scientific Housewife says:

    I love Zoya and these are really pretty colors!

  31. Van says:

    These are super pretty!

  32. Lauren says:

    i love caitlin, marley, dove and jules! i bought some zoya polishes earlier in the month and they are fading and chipping sooner than some of my drugstore polishes! even with seche vite top coat! that color lock system may be the answer to my problems. or a better base coat x.x
