Zoya nail polish – Jem

Hej på er!

Igår testade jag ett av nagellacken jag köpte i London på Whole Foods, Zoya i färgen “Jem”, ett varmt mörklila lack med rosa småglitter och guld duokroma inslag. Jag kunde inte se guldinslagen när lacket var på naglarna men väldigt snyggt ändå!

Zoya sa så här om sina produkter när jag mejlade dem:

Good morning!
Thank you for your interest in our products! Yes, the Zoya polish as well as all of the Zoya treatments (Including the Remove+, Anchor basecoat, and Armor topcoat) are all vegan friendly.
The Qtica and Smart Spa lines however are not considered vegan friendly as some balms and lotions there do contain beeswax and other ingredients like that.
Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns and have a great day!
thank you,

Jag märkte att de även har läppglans i linjen “Zoya Hot Lips” som innehåller karmin, så jag mejlade de igen och fick detta svar:

Good morning!
No problem! I should have been more specific. The whole Zoya nail polish and treatment line is vegan friendly and free from all animal based colorants like carmine. But that just covers the nail polish line and specific nail polish treatments but not the Zoya Hot Lips. A couple of the Hot Lips shades (the darker reds) do contain carmine so we don’t say that line is vegan friendly. Let me know if I can help with anything else and have a great day!
thank you,

Så här svarade de om djurtester:

Good morning!

Väldigt bra att Zoya svarade jättesnabbt på mina frågor och svarade på allt jag undrade över, inte alltför ofta företag har så bra service! 🙂

Nagellacket var väldigt lätt att hantera (varken för rinnigt eller tjockt) och torkade väldigt snabbt! Här hade jag två lager.
Det skulle nog vara ännu snyggare och hålla längre med ett glansigt lager av en top coat!

Det var väldigt svårt att få till foton som visar exakt hur nagellacket ser ut! I vissa ljus var lacket mer kallt mörklila och i andra ljus mer som på bilderna.

Zoya säljs på bland annat Eleven (kom ihåg: Zoya Hot Lips är ej veganska)!

Hi guys!

Yesterday I tried one of the Zoya nail polishes I got in London at Whole Foods. It’s in the gorgeous shade “Jem” which is a warm purple with pink tiny glitters and a golden duocrome effect. I couldn’t wuite see the gold on the nails but love the shade!

This is what Zoya said about their products when I sent them an email asking about animal ingredients:

Good morning!

I also noticed that they have lip gloss in the line “Zoya Hot Lips” that contain carmine, so I asked Zoya about this and got this reply:

I have to say Zoya has great service and answered my emails very quickly and answered everything I asked about, that’s great! 🙂

The nail polish was very easy to deal with; not too thick and not too runny, it also dried up very fast! I used two layers.
I think it would look even better and last longer with a shiny top coat!

It was a bit hard to get a good photo of this polish! In some lights it was more cold dark purple than in the pictures.
