Cool Company: Zoya Nail Polish
Zoya makes quality nail polish in an endless variety of colors (I spent more time than I'd like to admit trying to narrow it down to just three.) What sets them apart is that their polishes don't contain all the scary chemicals that I'd rather not voluntarily apply to my body: toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor. Their shipping wasn't particularly fast for $10 flat, but the polishes are very long wearing (especially if you are patient and let each thin coat dry fully before the next.) According to their website, they won the title of longest wearing natural nail polish by an independent panel in Women’s Health Magazine. At $8 a bottle, Zoya polishes are only a few dollars above drugstore prices for a safer, longer wearing product. It would be nice to see them in person before buying, but I was happy with the colors I ordered.
