Best Nail Polish

Shoppers Choice:

ZOYA Nail Polish

Highlights: Vegan friendly; the longest wearing natural nail polish that is Big 10 Free; one of the best choice of pregnant women and health conscious women worldwide.

“I like nail polish, but rarely wear it because it always feels like my options are: 1) be excessively careful or 2) have chipped nail polish within a day or two. (To be fair, I’ve mostly used the cheap stuff.) This is my first time using Zoya and I’m impressed by how well it has held up. I made it a whole week before having any noticeable chips!”  – Eloise
