Nail Look: Caribbean French

Nail Tech: Miss Pop for ZOYA

“Moved by Oscar de la Renta’s home in the Caribbean, the nail look took cues from the flowers, sunsets, plants, and sea.” Miss Pop, Lead Manicurist for ZOYA

Details:

The Oscar de la Renta SS 2020 collection was filled with vibrant fabrics, vintage laces and embroidery. The color palette paid homage to Oscar’s home of the Caribbean. With the burst of colors seen in the collection, it was only fitting for the nail look to further expand on this liveliness. Three nail looks brought this to life with an assortment of oranges, pinks and nudes.

How To:

Look 1: Begin by cleaning and prepping the nail with ZOYA Remove Plus. Start with ZOYA Naked Manicure Naked Base to provide a nice foundation for the polish. Apply a layer of ZOYA in Laurel. Using a dotting pen tool, apply the dot with ZOYA in Purity in the center bottom of the nail (close to the cuticle). Seal the look with ZOYA Naked Manicure Glossy Seal to give it that extra shine. For a quick dry, add a few drops of ZOYA Fast Drops.

Look 2: Start with a clean nail by removing any nail residue with ZOYA Remove Plus. Apply ZOYA Naked Manicure Naked Base as the base for the nail. Apply a layer of ZOYA in Spencer. Place the French tip guide towards the top of the nail. Starting from the left to the right, fill in this top portion with ZOYA in Arizona, then ZOYA in Sawyer, then ZOYA in Laurel to create an ombre effect. Using a dotting pen tool, apply the dot with ZOYA in Sawyer in the center bottom of the nail (close to the cuticle). Finally, finish with ZOYA Naked Manicure Glossy Seal and ZOYA Fast Drops.

Look 3: Follow the same process as above with ZOYA Remove Plus and ZOYA Naked Manicure Naked Base. Begin by applying a layer of ZOYA in Brenna. Place the French tip guide towards the top of the nail. Starting from the left to the right, fill in this top portion with ZOYA in Arizona, then ZOYA in Sawyer, then ZOYA in Laurel to create an ombre effect. Seal the look with ZOYA Naked Manicure Glossy Seal to give it that extra shine. For a quick dry, add a few drops of ZOYA Fast Drops.

Polish colors can be swapped based on preference and/or how they flatter your skin tone. For darker skin tones, opt for ZOYA in Jack, ZOYA in Spencer, ZOYA in Chanelle as the base. For fairer skin tones, opt for ZOYA in Brenna or ZOYA in Laurel.

NYFW Spring/Summer 2020 Recap: Zoya At Prabal Gurung

Photo Credit: Rebecca Maynes Photo

Colors Used: ZOYA Remove Plus, Naked Manicure Naked Base, Purity, Naked Manicure Pink Perfector, Carmen, Naked Manicure Glossy Seal, Fast Drops

Nail Look: New America
Nail Tech: Miss Pop for ZOYA

“The collection was inspired by this idea of Americana classic. The French manicure has always been a timeless nail look but just like this “New America”, we wanted to add a bit of a twist.” – Miss Pop, Lead Manicurist for ZOYA

Details:
The Prabal Gurung SS 2020 collection considers many facets of America – from the ideals, faces, identities, and opinions. While the collection hints on the past, Gurung reimagines it in hopes of creating a new legacy, thus forming this new America. A mix of tailoring and grit, patch-worked dresses, cowboy boots, and explosions of color defines this rebirth. The nail look put a twist on the classic French manicure by using Naked Manicure shades as the base. Pedicures featured the classic red, ZOYA in Carmen.

How To:
Begin by cleaning and prepping the nail with ZOYA Remove Plus. Start with Naked Manicure Naked Base to provide a nice foundation for the polish. Apply two layers of ZOYA Naked Manicure Pink Perfector. Using a fine thin brush, draw a thin line with ZOYA in Purity at the free edge. Finish with ZOYA Naked Manicure Glossy Seal to give the nails that perfect, high shine finish. For a quick dry, add a few drops of ZOYA Fast Drops. Depending on skin tone, Naked Manicure Pink Perfector can be switched with Buff Perfector, Lavender Perfector or Mauve Perfector.
For the toes, apply Naked Manicure Naked Base, followed by two coats of ZOYA in Carmen. Complete the nail look with ZOYA Naked Manicure Glossy Seal and ZOYA Fast Drops.

Wedding Manicures Inspired by Couture Gowns

zoya_nail_polish_brides_brittany

Fashion is inspiring whether it’s seen as a print on your favorite products, or to create a beautiful nail look. Brides recently shared wedding manicures inspired by couture gowns, and they are stunning.

Image via Brides

Featured as one of the manicures is a look inspired by the above gown by Zuhair Murad using Zoya in Brittany.

“The show: Zuhair Murad

The look: Dresses fit for a fairytale (wedding or otherwise), with flower motifs and crystal embellishments in a variety of pastels.

The manicure: An ombre of soft pink shades make this floral pattern so versatile. Wear it for your engagement party, bridal shower, wedding, or brunch. If you do decide to choose it for your day-of manicure, we’re envisioning it with a pale-pink wedding gown because monochrome = super chic.” -Brides

Will fashion inspire your nail look on the big day?

Naked Manicure Impresses Lucky Senior Beauty Editor!

lucky naked maniThe new trend in nails is here – and it’s Naked Manicure. Senior Beauty Editor of Lucky, Tara Rasmus shared a hilariously well-written piece on the new system that not only makes your nails look naturally beautiful – but also treats them in the long-term as well. Tara told readers about how she, too has troublesome nails at times. Tara was backstage at the BCBG MAX AZRIA SS16 show where Zoya was the nail sponsor, and immediately noticed the natural healthy look of the manicures on the models.

Backstage at the show is when Tara met Zoya Creative Director, Rebecca Isa who also created the Naked Manicure System (aka, she’s a genius). While speaking with Rebecca, Tara was able to not only see how excited Rebecca was about the system, but also get an inside-scoop on how the system works. Before leaving, Tara was able to snag a Mini Professional Starter Kit and try the system for herself.

“True: the Naked Manicure system may not be able to magically grant me my mom’s awesome nail beds, but it can least help me make the most of what I’ve got—and, let me tell you, I’m feeling like a new woman already.” – Tara Rasmus

It’s true- the Naked Mani is resonating with more and more people every day because it truly works. Read Tara’s entire article about her Naked Manicure experience here and learn more about the Naked Manicure.
