Eureka - The smart choice for natural nails is smart choice for gel nails too!

Zoya Professional Nail Lacquer - The smart choice for natural nails is the smart choice for gel nails too!

Preliminary testing has shown that Zoya Professional Nail Lacquer is the only nail polish that can substitute expensive color nail gels when mixed with a single phase clear UV gel systems or painted over a UV multi-phase gel foundation directly and then sealed with a final UV gel coat for long-lasting nail color results.

Salon and spa professionals will be able to increase color options for their clients while controlling inventory costs of stocking costly colored gels. Zoya Professional Nail Lacquer bottles sell for 1/10th the salon price of a typical jar of gel color. Now, the same color can be used in both natural and gel nail services. The savings potential of this new discovery could be tremendous for nail care professionals and their clients making Zoya as powerful to nail techs as aspirin is to doctors.

Here’s how it works…

Single Phase Gel System:

Prep the nail for gels as instructed, apply primer, followed by one thin layer of UV clear gel creating the base. Cure 2 minutes.

In a small pot, mix the customer’s preferred Zoya polish shade (40%) with the gel (60%). Apply this second thicker layer of Zoya tinted UV clear gel building the arch of the nail as desired. Cure for 3 minutes.

OrMulti Phase Gel System:

Paint Zoya Professional Nail Lacquer directly onto an already sculpted UV gel nail surface. Cure for 5 minutes.

Apply a third thin layer of UV clear gel and cure.

According to European and Japanese nail technicians this process works for natural nail overlays, sculpted nails or tips only applications. Zoya Professional Lacquers are formaldehyde free, toluene free, dbp free, camphor free and designed to wear up to 10 days on natural nails. Unique in every way!

Disclaimer - While this new discovery using Zoya Professional Nail Lacquer is exciting, Art of Beauty (makers of Zoya) does not endorse gel systems and does not endorse or guarantee the results of mixing Zoya Professional Nail Lacquers with UV clear gel products or any other artificial nail systems.

Perfectly Polished Tips reviews Zoya's Flourish Collection

Here's a review we missed from a few days ago - it features another great commentary of the new Zoya Professional Nail Lacquer Flourish collection, color by color. Thanks Perfectly Polished Tips.

It also has a review of the new Zoya Flourish colleciton coordinating Hot Lips Color, Starlet.

"I don't usually review cosmetics but these beauties followed Flourish home. Zoya Hot lips are pretty great. I've only worn Starlet so far, the gloss isn't overly sticky and the applicator is rounded making it easy to get the product out. It smells like those fire cracker ice pops, I think that is what they are called. It tastes nice too. Starlet is sheer but buildable which I like. I am not very big on wearing any type of color on my face, except blush. I was able to apply this gloss and only leave a light tint. It has glitter but it's not gritty and with the sheer coat I applied it wasn't visible. This can be a pro or con depending on what you like. Personally I'm not a huge glitter fan so I liked that I could wear it with out the glitter being an issue. The gloss also lasted for a decent amount of time which is great. You know what else is great? Matching your gloss to your polish. The three above match Richelle, Kalista, and Mieko almost perfectly."

Zoya Flourish Collection Nail Color is "out of control GORGEOUS!"

The Rave Reviews for Zoya's Flourish Collection are really coming in now... GORGEOUS and FABULOUS and PERFECT and SPARKLY, and FESTIVE! Flourish is fast becoming the season's MUST-HAVE nail color collection. Recent swatch reviews from All Lacquered up (shown here), The Crystal Files (shown here) and others show you just how wonderful each and every color (Richelle, Zara, Shivon, Mieko, Cyma and Kalista) in this collection is.

"The holidays seem to be extra sparkly this year with so many festive, glimmering polishes headed our way. Zoya's Flourish collection certainly fits in with that trend. This set of six glitzy shades is sure to put a twinkle in your eye. In the same vein as the Magique collection from two years ago, each lacquer has fine micro-glitter that peeks at you through ribbons of luscious gold shimmer."

Vampy Varnish talks about Zoya Professional Nail Lacquer

Zoya's best selling Flourish Collection is a blogger favorite!

Looking for more polish reviews and swatches? Kelly at Vampy Varnish lets us in on her thoughts about a couple of Zoya Flourish Collection nail color shades...

Zoya Kalista
"Just gorgeous! As soon as I saw this color, I knew I had to possess it. It's SO up my alley! Lately I have really been into browns and this is the nicest one I have seen this season (yes folks, I like it even more than Chanel's Haute Chocolat!)."

Zoya Zara
"Another really beautiful totally original color! I have nothing like Zara. It's this really pretty lavender with tons of gold shimmer. And when I say tons I mean tons."
