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.

Nail Look: Grand Opulence

Nail Tech: Miss Pop for ZOYA

“The collection was filled with darker tones including deep reds, emerald greens, and navy.

Photo Credit: Rebecca Maynes Photo for ZOYA

Details:

The Oscar de la Renta AW 19 collection showcased ruffled feathers, florals, embroidered fabrics and velvet textures.

How To:

Prep Begin by cleaning and prepping the nail with ZOYA Remove Plus.  Start with Naked Manicure Buff Perfector (replacing your base coat). For color, apply two coats of ZOYA in Alyssa.

NAIL LOOK: HALF MOON AROUND THE WORLD | NAIL TECH: MISS POP FOR ZOYA

“MANY OF THE PIECES SHOWED A BIT OF SKIN. THE IDEA OF A SEXY WOMAN WHO REMAINS VERY CLASSY AND SOPHISTICATED
WAS REPRESENTED IN THE NAIL LOOK. THE NEGATIVE SPACE, HALF-MOON SYMBOLIZED THAT HINT OF SEXINESS COMBINED
WITH THIS PERFECT SHADE OF NUDE THAT LOOKS GREAT ON ALL SKIN TONES. FOR THE PEDICURE, A SUPER SEXY RED PAIRED
WELL WITH THE LACE UP HEELS WORN BY THE MODELS.” -MISS POP, LEAD MANICURIST FOR ZOYA

DETAILS
The Oscar de la Renta SS 2019 collection brought to life the true
Oscar de la Renta woman with a feminine edge. Gowns ranged
from sheer lace to bright billowing dresses with shimmery and
ruffled embellishments to stand out. The nail look was created
using a classic nude with the half-moon design with the toes
using a contrasting shade.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK
Begin by cleaning and prepping the nail with ZOYA REMOVE+.
Follow with ZOYA Naked Manicure Naked Base. To create a
half moon design, apply stencil sticker paper to the top half
of nail so it’s covered. For the color, apply two coats of ZOYA
in CHANTAL to the top of the nail, leaving the half-moon free
of any nail polish to create the negative space. If you don’t
have the stencil readily available, try your best to create the
look without it. Then, take a q-tip with some Remove Plus to
clean up the half-moon. Finish it off by applying ZOYA NAKED
MANICURE GLOSSY SEAL over the full nail to give it a nice shiny
finish. For a quick dry, add a few drops of ZOYA FAST DROPS.
For the pedicure, make sure your toes are free of any polish by
using ZOYA REMOVE+. Follow with ZOYA NAKED MANICURE
NAKED BASE. For color, apply two coats of ZOYA in SHERI. Add
ZOYA NAKED MANICURE GLOSSY SEAL for a perfect, high shine
finish. For a quick dry, add a few drops of ZOYA FAST DROPS.

Hottest Nail Polish Trends for Fall 2018

With New York Fashion week behind us, the hottest nail trends for Fall 2018 were seen on the runway. One of the trending looks was from the Bibhu Mohapatra show which featured Zoya as the nail sponsor! The look was featured on Cosmopolitan.

Lead nail tech, Miss Pop created a bedazzled look using two different shades – Zoya in Tawny and Zoya in Aspen. Both looks featured a negative space look with a gorgeous jewel.

“Who says nail art stops at your cuticle? Complement your negative space mani by gluing (eyelash glue works like a charm) a stud by each knuckle, like the nails at Bibhu Mohapatra.” – Cosmopolitan

marie_claire_best_nude_nail_polish_zoya_naked_manicure_nude_dec16

It’s official, nude is in! When it comes to the perfect nude nail polish, Marie Claire has you covered with the help from celebrity manicurist, Miss Pop.

“Nude has begun to mean a lot of different things,” says Miss Pop. “We’re not just talking opacity anymore, or tone, it’s also a variety of neutrals. It goes everywhere from beige to gray, to even a pale apricot or peach. Depending on your skin tone and personality, there’s more than one option for you.” – Miss Pop for Marie Claire

While the Naked Manicure offers a selection of Perfectors to try depending on your skin tone, Marie Claire recommends the Nude Perfector if you have a darker skin tone. The perfectors are very sheer, and are meant to brighten and correct your natural nail color while adding vitamins to it at the same time.
