It was my search for good matte nail polish that led me to discover Zoya, which quickly became one of my favorite nail polish brands.
The bottles are sexy, the colors are gorgeous (matte or not), the formula is fantastic and the wear is impressive. Zoya is three-free. It does not contain toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate – dangerous chemicals that can do evil things to your body. It’s safe enough for pregnant women to wear. Thanks to Zoya, they can flash their pretty manicured nails without worrying about possible birth defects.
There is no doubt in the world that I love Zoya. My Zoya wishlist is a mile long. I even named my Petville pet after Zoya.
The only thing I didn’t love about Zoya is that it wasn’t available locally – I had to resort to ordering it online and waiting days and days (sometimes weeks) for the bottles to reach me.
But a couple of weeks ago, Katrina, one of the owners of Organic Rituals got in touch with me to invite me to their spa. They have eco-conscious facilities and they use natural and organic oils, scrubs and lotions in their massage and body treatments, she said. Naturally, Organic Rituals also uses vegan and non-toxic nail polishes.
And that’s when Katrina dropped the magic word. Zoya. Organic Rituals uses Zoya and SpaRitual products in their manicures and pedicures. And it gets better – this month, they actually started selling Zoya polishes.
I stopped by Organic Rituals for a quick visit (read: to check out their stocks of Zoya).
Look at what greeted me when I arrived:
And there’s more.
Yes, Organic Rituals is the land of Zoya.
Here are my top picks:
There’s a wide range of Zoya colors available at Organic Rituals and I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll like – whether you’re a fan of sheers and pretty pastels or you’re hooked on dark vampy colors like me.
I’m already planning my next visit to Organic Rituals and next time, I’m actually going to stay for a treatment. I hear their scrubs are pretty good.
