Little known fact: Zoya can be purchased in New York City :)
I read that the ladies over at PolishSis had recently been to New York City and came home with Zoya. In the comments, someone had asked where the Zoya was found, and using the assistance of Google translate, I learned of the Polished Beauty Bar on the Upper West Side!
Polished Beauty Bar is a neat salon that does manicures, pedicures, facials, massages, and waxing. Like most NYC businesses, it's not super big inside - the minute I entered, every employee and patron stared right at me. To be perfectly honest, pre-blog Amy would have walked in and walked right out, it was that awkward. But no! I was determined to find the Zoya!
Toward the back of the salon is a great display and selection of Zoyas for sale. There were colors from the new summer collections, and older staples. If you go, I would suggest asking an employee to show you where the Zoya is. I picked up three colors: Jules, Gemma, and Zara.
Jules is a very unique gold polish with a foil like finish. What makes this unique is the pewter tones, which I absolutely love. The brush and application was perfect, aka "standard" for Zoya :)
I had to try OPI Silver Shatter over Jules. The result was an interesting yet subtle metallic mani.
Polished Beauty Bar is located on 250 West 78th Street (off Broadway). Zoya can also be purchased online.
