Nails of the Day ~ Zoya Jana Nail Polish

by lyn on January 27, 2012 · 10 comments

in Fall / Autumn, Polish, Zoya

I went a little crazy recently and ordered a bunch of Zoya polishes. One of the colours I picked out was Jana from the Fall 2011 Smoke and Mirrors Collection. Jana falls in the “Smoke” part of the collection and is a dusty, greyish-purple coloured cream. It is a little difficult to capture the actual colour on camera and in my photographs, Jana looks a bit more grey-ish beige (griege) but in some lighting, in does show more purple.

It has a wonderful glossy finish on its own and I did not need to add a topcoat (as photographed). The polish applies smoothly with decent drying time. It is completely opaque with two coats. I absolutely love the Zoya formula and consistency. Their polishes are so lovely to use! I started experiencing slight tip wear after two days but that’s because I didn’t use a topcoat.

Zoya nail polish retails at RM33 on Nail Fiesta but stocks are limited. I have no clue where else they sell Zoya locally and even if a nail salon uses the brand, the polishes may not be for sale.

What have you been wearing on your nails lately and have you tried Zoya before?

zoya polishes are the bomb! they are beautiful and easy to work with, only downside is the darker/ stronger colours stains the nail bed rather badly >.<

The cross between gray and purple looks stunning. I love colors that look like blends :)

I've been so drawn by taupe-y nail colors but I can't imagine them looking good on me :(

Hi Plue, I haven't noticed any staining but I usually apply a base coat first. I honestly think the Zoya formulas are one of the best so far!

Thanks, Peach! This is rather neutral and work appropriate. I love it :-)

Me too, Jen! I love these smoky combinations, they are quite sophisticated.

Connie, Taupe is one of my fave colours too but I think Jana will good on you as it is deep enough and has fairly neutral undertones.

It’s actually very difficult in this full of
activity life to listen news on TV, thus I only use web for that reason,
and obtain the most recent news.
