I’ll be honest. My first choice for a nail polish is not to grab a neutral. I like to live life in color. But when I saw the Zoya Feel Collection, I felt like “neutral” took on new meaning. And I also felt ready for the soft, snowy-winter look that the Feel Collection has for …

What’s a nail fanatic to do when Mother Nature gives her a second natural disaster/event in one week (we had an earthquake on Tuesday)? Why, I put it on my nails, of …

Zoya Smoke and Mirrors

Zoya’s Smoke and Mirrors collection is not just a reflection of the trends in fall fashion -it’s a reflection of the state of our economy. Zoya Reyzis, who founded Zoya with her husband, Michael, said that while these are depressed colors, “We are optimistic.” (Of course, Zoya said this at Cosmoprof, before S&P downgraded the US …

Tokaido Express – NARS’ new Fall 2009 nail color

When I think of NARS, I don’t think nail polish.  I think Orgasm – the blush and lip gloss color, that is! But the company does have a collection of nail polishes (also in Orgasm!), and this fall they’ve added Tokaido Express to the list. Tokaido Express is described on the NARS web site as …
