Ladies (and men too who wear nail polish), if you have darker skin like me, have you noticed that there are a lot of shades or polish that are just not flattering for our darker skin? I have bought countless nail polish colors in the store only to come home, try them out and find that they just don’t look right one me. Or, I end up putting one shade on top of another to get the look I desire.
Disclosure: Zoya sent me these polish colors complimentary but the opinions expressed are my own.
I recently discovered Zoya nail polish and am enjoying the colors.
I’m obsessed with teal colors lately. I tried two teal samples from Zoya: one a dark teal (pictured at the top of this page) and one a light teal (perfect for spring and summer!) See picture above. I wore this color on several beach vacations last year and it was perfect! Surprisingly, I found the color to coordinate well with lots of the items I packed for my trip too!
The darker teal from Zoya’s nail polish collection, was pretty too and this nail color is perfect for dark skin tones. I was surprised just how different the color looked in different light. For example in darker light, this teal looks almost black. Perhaps it would be better if I just put one coat on instead of two.
Nude color perfect for dark skin tones – when you are looking for neutral tones.
Have you heard of Zoya’s pixie dust colors? I’m not usually a sparkly kind of nail polish wearer, but some of the colors are intriguing and the color looks nice on dark skin colors. But can I tell you the thing I like best about the pixie dust nail polish from Zoya? It is really forgiving? What do I mean by that? You know how you put a couple coats on and think the polish is dry, then the second you touch something, your polish is smeared? That won’t happen with the pixie dust polish. Since this nail polish is matte and not glossy, imperfections don’t show up.
Shortly after applying two coats if the Zooey (bright coral color), I was able to take a shower and my nails still looked great! I love this sparkly nail color to change up my colors and give it more of a pop of color!
