Looking for a great brand to follow on Instagram for Nail Art inspiration? The Fashion Spot recommends Zoya Nail Polish (@ZoyaNailPolish on Insta).
"Our favorite toxin-free and vegan-friendly brand posts new shades, cute designs and gorgeous phots. What's not to love?"~ The Fashion Spot
Toxin-Free (Big5Free*) Formula Nail Polish
"...formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene from their mixes along with the allergens camphor and formaldehyde resin—all potentially dangerous ingredients that could do everything from disrupt your endocrine system to cause cancer." ~ Prevention.com
In a non-related article the Chicago Tribune also recently ran a piece spotlighting Salon Hype, a Chicago area salon that is dedicated to eliminating products that contain potentially harmful ingredients.
"... If you've ever read the list of ingredients on a bottle of polish you'd be amazed. The list of harmful ingredients is long and often unpronounceable and sometimes reduced to initials. Have you ever heard of toluene? The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is on the record saying it causes kidney and lung problems, and can be harmful to pregnant women. Toluene is found in nail glue and most nail polishes, but we use toluene-free polishes, like Zoya. An ingredient you've no doubt heard of is formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen, as well as causes all sorts of breathing problems and is used in nail hardeners and polishes."~ Chicago Tribune
*Zoya Nail Polish features a 5 free formula which does not include formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene and camphor.

As nail trends move toward softer and more organic looking, this look is great for anyone looking to update their nails without having to worry about painting precise lines. It's a great DIY nail look solution.
Using similar wine nail polish colors in different finishes, Holly at The Trendy Nail, combined Zoya Claire (burgundy wine cream) with an accent layer of Zoya India (liquid metallic red with gold shimmer) over half of the nail to complete this monochromatic Red Wine Nail combo.

Zoya Remove+ is a fairy fave, as well as a consumer fave!
There's a handful of beauty products on the market that have an "obsessive following" and people just can't get enough of them. We are happy to say (although we knew it all along) that Zoya Remove+ is one of those products and featured on Refinery29 as one of the top 30 most obsessed over beauty buys!
"This nail polish remover is the best. I almost wish I hadn't discovered it because it is impossible to go back to regular drugstore brand remover. It works twice as quick as the normal stuff and doesn't smell nearly as bad. There's no turning back." - Refinery 29
