ZOYA has launched their summer collections, Chit Chat (pictured above) and Gossip (pictured below). Chit Chat includes six shades of fun colors that are perfect for summer. My favorite shade is probably Elke, which is a hot rose metallic (pictured on my thumb). My pointer finger is donned with Annie a bold berry metallic, while my middle finger has Lianne (an ultra tangerine metallic). My ring finger has Bekka, which is a cool chartreuse metallic (and surprisingly not as neon as you would think), with my pinky colored with Erika, a soft pink metallic (sheerest of the bunch). My other thumb (not pictured here, but you can see it in the secondary pictures) is Gaia, a white metallic.

I would say Gaia is my least favorite, just because it seems rather unoriginal compared to the other colors, and I personally wouldn’t wear all-white nails, and I never have time to get a manicure for French nails, either. I like the orange in Lianne because it isn’t so “in-your-face,” and Annie has an awesome duochrome shimmer to it.

Gossip was inspired by the girls of The Hills, and I know we have some fans of the show around these parts. I actually LOVED every single one of these polishes because the pigmentation was insane. Seriously, I could have used just one coat and been on my way. As creams, all of these have such a beautiful finish with no shimmer, but they don’t look flat or dull. I do, personally, use the Zoya Color Lock System as my preference for base/top/dry coats, but these nails are pictured without any base or top coat. You really do get what you see in the bottle! On the left most thumb pictured, I used Audrina, which is a red-purple cream that is gorgeous and reminds me of lazy days on the beach; while my right thumb has Whitney, a hot fuchsia cream, which is just magnetic. Pair it with your Heatherette goodies! My pointer finger has LO, an electric cerise cream, my middle finger has Elodie, a bold poppy cream, my ring finger has Heidi, a hi-beam orange cream, and my pinky has LC, a summer red cream.

Which one is more up your alley?

My favorites were… well… all of them really! I don’t normally wear bright reds or oranges, but I do love LC for its wearable shade of bright red (if that makes any sense!). Both Audrina and Whitney are super fun colors, and Audrina isn’t too bright in the least (while Whitney may be a touch more “hey, check out my nails”). Elodie is also quite pretty as a brighter coral, and I suspect I will be rockin’ this one a few times on beach-going days.

Zoya polishes are free of Toluene, Formaldehyde, and DPB (the “big three”), and I own numerous bottles and have not been disappointed in their application, color, or quality. They last a full week on me when used with a base and top coat with no chipping and minimal tip wear. Get yours at www.zoya.com.

    Those are pretty! I like the Gossip collection.

    Can you get Zoya in stores or only online? How is it compared to Essie or Opi?

    • Annie

      I like them so much I only use zoya at my salon. you can get them online at zoya.com. If you are a pro you can get them cheaper if you register. I like them better than Essie and Opi for wear on naturals, I dont do artificials anymore. Make sure to use the zoya base and top for them to last. Something in the formulation makes it just work best.

    • It’s comparable to OPI for sure. I love Zoya formulas! You can get them at salons and online, I believe!

  2. I love these so much! I also LOVE the Hills, so of course I really, really love the Gossip collection. I’m not sure how much these fit their personalities, or why they even included Elodie, but I love them all the same!

    I rarely even wear nail polishes (Although I am wearing some now! Sally Hansen Salon’s Pat on the Black, which I *surprise* bought because Lauren said in a magazine that it’s her fav. *I’m such a dork*) but I think I may have to get these!

    Although, I don’t know if I’m willing to plunk down $34 (plus shipping) for the 6 pack. Hmm, may take some thought.
