Zoya Barbie

Zoya is my current favorite polish. It makes me feel good that its 5 free, plus there are so many unique colors. But not this one. If you search for dupes for this color there are some very close versions from other companies.

And the photos looked good on the camera but once cropped they aren't as crisp as I would like.

This is a very basic pink cream. Makes me think of classic Malibu Barbie. I wore it with a super conservative suit jacket and it went well. This is also a bit thicker or more opaque than some of the other Zoya colors. I usually use 3 coats for full coverage, I only needed 2 for this.

These photos are two full days into the manicure and there is a small chip on the middle fingernail. But nothing too bad. I did have a toddler 'painting' I scrubbed up by hand on day one and that is when the chip happened. This is with Zoya Armor top coat. It wasn't quite strong enough to withstand the scrubbing, but much better than other top coats I have used. **As a note for the top coat, if you don't use enough on the brush it will pull the color on the nail. I learned that on my other hand. So a thick coat is better.**

The two pics are indirect natural light. My direct light photo didn't come out.

So there you go. Zoya is 5 free nail polish. Its free of the Big 3 (Formaldehye, dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) and Toluene and also free of Formaldehye resin and camphor. The retail price for this polish is $8, but you can often watch for special sales. If you don't have a Zoya account, you can sign up for one here and they give out occasional promo codes to people with accounts.
