ZOYA... ohh boya!

Ok so at the wonderful Beauty Bloggers meet up on July 25th, I got introduced to ZOYA nail polishes! Ok let me backtrack a bit...

As most of you know I am a mother of 2 wonderful, but crazy boys... a 27 month old and a 12 month old. They love nothing more than making a mess and hurting themselves! So painting my nails and having to wait for them to dry... is just not something I can do a lot UNLESS my hubby is home to take care of the boys for 2 hours(drying time). Ok so now back to the ZOYA. On Saturday we had the pleasure of getting manicures from Jacqueline Saulsbery, a celeb manicurist, who works with ZOYA. I picked this spring green color Midori and LOVED IT(here's a pic)!!! So we got some great products in our Goodie bag and one was a ZOYA Minicure kit... almost like a "try me" kit. I started after the baby went to bed and by the time his short nap was over I was DRY and NO bubbles!!! Do a happy dance!!

In the Minicure kit: 1oz ZOYA remover, .25 oz ZOYA Anchor, .25 oz ZOYA Nail Lacquer, .25 oz ZOYA Armor, and .25 oz ZOYA Hurry Up(with a little dropper).

So a little about each! The remover is a 3 in 1 remover. It is a light acetone polish remover, nail cleaner, and 1 step in the nail prep. I'm not going to lie to you... it still smells like regular nail polish remover, but with a touch of citrus(maybe it's me)! As I just did my nails on Friday night to go the event I didn't have to do a manicure. Plus, like I said I had the Midori still on(perfect I might add) so I just went right on to the next step which was the basecoat called Anchor. This step and product helps "adhere color to the nail by forming a bond between the nail plate and polish.*" Just one light coat of the Anchor is needed. Then on to the color, in the kit Shiloh comes with. As I just checked the website for the link I have to say the color on the website looks more pinky red and the in real life bottle reminds me of a candied apple with shimmer. I did 2 coats just to test out how long 2 coats would take. I could have done only one coat... this stuff is creamy in a good way. Next step for me.... the blow dryer I had to... I heard my son stirring. So I dried step 3 for about 5 mins each. Then sealed the color with 1 coat of thick Armor, the topcoat and UV block. Also the Armor gives the polish "a flexible, long-wearing protective finish*" I also dried this step for about 4 mins. Next the best part of this kit... the Hurry Up drops! No scent with this liquid that you drop on the base of the nails and it dries, prevents bubbling, and pops the color of the polish. I am not sure if the drops work with other brands I will have to update you about that.

Over all the process including drying time 45mins and that's finishing with BONE DRY... ready to pick the baby nails! Go check out ZOYA.... now I know why Brittany(Clumps Of Mascara) has a collection of this brand. I think my next step is to pick up one of their samplers... maybe this one.
