Zoya – Natty

I have a polish to show you today that I wanted simply for its name, its a nickname that I called my son when he was a baby, so I had to have it.

Zoya is a US based polish that us nail fanatics love, they have some great colours and they are vegan friendly, plus they are Big 5 Free. However, getting them in the UK is a bit of a pain, you either have a polish pal or have to spend a bit of cash. But wow, they are worth it.  Natty is from the Fall 2012 Designer series. Here come the pictures!

Natty is a deep blue creme with a dusky hint to it.  It applied like a dream, smooth, creamy and manageable.  Drying time was average and the colour is very pigmented.  I used two coats here, you could do three thin coats too and get the nice depth of colour you see here.  I used my Essie all-in-one base coat and Seche for a topcoat.  I did experience a bit of tip shrinkage but I did expect it.

Then I decided the following day to paint over Natty with the lovely Ama Dablam from Elevation Polish, stunning combo and one I wore for a couple of days.  Below I have a bottle comparison for you, on the left is Khloe Had a Little Lam Lam, in the middle is Blue Rebel from the Chanel Les Jeans collection, with Natty on the right.  In terms of a dupe, Blue Rebel is probably the closest as there is only a shade or two in it.


Zoya can be purchased from Amazon (UK) and several other resellers, if you have a hot tip, please share it in the comments below.  I’m hoping to get some more to add to the few I have when I go to the US shortly.  Wish me luck!
