Go natural

After unwittingly abusing your nails with chemicals and harsh polish, give them a breather with this system that treats, corrects, and protects

Nail care is often neglected and can even be a chore. In most cases and for those who have the time, the best thing is to visit your nearest nail salon. Unfortunately, not all of them may cater to your specific needs. Here is a query from @kyraquilinguen:

Taking care of your nails is a must for everyone

Taking care of your nails is a must for everyone

“I have brittle nails and when I get them done, they sometimes get damaged and discolored. What would you recommend for me to use for my next manicure?”

If you are equipped with proper knowledge of nail care, I suggest experimenting with what you like. Depending on the occasion, you can match your nails to whatever mood you want to achieve. You may also have it done by a specialist; however, I recommend that you bring your own nail polish, so that you exactly know what they are applying to your precious nails.

I am happy to share with you my recent discovery: Zoya. It is the world’s leading cruelty-free nail polish brand. Founded in 1986 by wife and husband Zoya and Michael Reyzis, Zoya is a multi-awarded, international brand whose focus is to create the highest quality of toxin-free products for salons and spas. They know that while wearing color on your nails is very important to add a bit of spice to your look, having smooth, healthy, bare-worthy nails is still the best. For this reason, Zoya developed a system that promises to bring back the health and natural beauty of your nails—the Naked Manicure System.

The Naked Manicure System is an internationally acclaimed nail-rejuvenating program that works two ways. First, it provides instant cosmetic correction—meaning, your nails will look flawless (perfected free edges, neutralized discoloration, refined surface, leveled nail plate) instantly, and, of course, with a natural finish. Second, the system—especially its base—through continued use, promises to bring back the natural beauty and health of your nails, thanks to its many vitamins and minerals, which include vitamin E, B5, red algae, gingko, and a protein complex.

Just like all other Zoya products, the Naked Manicure System, is also vegan and BIG5FREE—that means it’s free from any trace of five of the most common toxins found in cosmetic products, namely dibutylphthalate (an ingredient linked to cancer and other health concerns, including problems in the endocrine system, increased risk of diabetes in women, nausea, reproductive issues, and birth defects), formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), formaldehyde resin (a known irritant), toluene (known to cause dizziness, dry skin, headaches, liver and kidney damage, nausea, numbness, and has been linked to birth defects), and camphor (a poisonous substance that also carries the same harmful effects as toluene). None of the products in this program causes harm to the body or the environment. And it is safe for use even by pregnant and lactating women.

The Naked Manicure’s base and seals sell for P600 per bottle, while each of the six perfectors retails for P500. Salons offering the system as a service include Beauty & Butter, Nailaholics, Nails.Glow, and Razor Sports Barbershop. Their prices for the service vary, but range from P250-500 for manicure, and P350-600 for pedicure.

In the Philippines, Zoya is distributed by MixExpert Manila. To know more about the brand, follow @zoyaph on Instagram, @zoyaphofficial on Twitter, Zoya Philippines on Facebook
