Zoya Nail Polish in Trixie

As big as my obsession with purple nail polish is, I have a slightly smaller yet unhealthy obsession with silver nail polish. I eventually want to find a silver nail polish that will look like a mirror on my nail. I want a freakin disco ball on my nails. You hear me? I'm insane. I know I can achieve that look by getting MINX nails but since there are not too many places near me that do Minx nails I'll have to settle for plain old nail polish.

In my ravenous desire for disco ball nails, the recent acquisition of Zoya Trixie nail polish has sated me for the time being. Granted I don't have mirrors on my nails but hot damn the shiny silver of Trixie is amazing. Zoya Trixie is a beautiful silver chrome polish with very fine micro shimmer in silver mixed in. Two coats and you are good to go. This opaque polish shows minimal to no brush strokes, covers well and lasts for days!

Zoya nail polish is big 3 free. That means it is free of Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde and Toluene. Three toxic chemicals that used to be common in nail polishes. Most companies have changed their formulations to be big 3 free so it's not as much of an issue. While I'm not entirely convinced that you are better off without these chemicals in your nail polish, those that do have a concern can breathe a sigh of relief when using Zoya.

Do you NEED Zoya Trixie? Well DUH. It's like the totally coolest silver polish out there! It also looks hot as a pedicure in the summer against tanned tootsies. Tan = Something that never happens to my skin. I am melanin challenged, but I still think Trixie looks nice against pale skin as well. Zoya nail polish retails for $7.

Sorry for the craptacular focusing in this picture, but I wanted to show you show incredibly shiny Zoya Trixie is in sunlight.

P.S. Thanks for ignoring my wretched cuticles. Have a nice day.

  2. Ahhh, I too understand your disco ball obsession!! Silver is my favorite color, both on and off nails, and I have yet to find that "mirror"-like color I have been so craving (apart, like you said from the extremely-hard-to-find-especially-in-Ohio Minx)

    Trixie is definitely the best silver polish out there to date, such a rich and sparkly color, I love it!

    Great blog =)
