Sunny, Summer Toes: Zoya Polishes and Priti Soy Polish Remover

Ready or not, summer is almost here and it's time to make your toes sandal-ready!  Our pick this season is a bold, canary yellow polish ("Pippa") from Zoya's La-Di-Da Summer '09 Collection.  It's among six optimistic shades, such as cherry red and watermelon fuschia, that look like they've burst from a Skittles bag. The colors are beautifully wearable, though, due to their opaque cream finish.

When you're ready for a new hue, enlist Priti Soy Polish Remover.  Made by the eponymous organic salon in NYC and praised by numerous beauty editors, this polish remover is 100% natural and free of noxious acetone.

Eco Factor:
Zoya nail polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).

To Buy: Nail polish: $6 at, select Whole Foods and salons worldwide. Polish remover: $11.25 at

Do they chip a lot? Last time I used a polish like this, it chipped right away.

Hi Mia. Yeah, natural nail polishes have a reputation for chipping a bit quicker (worth the price, though, for their omission of nasty chemicals). But Zoya's are top-notch. I've found they last just as long as conventional polishes. And their shades are really fun.

I LOVE Zoya's and that yellow and the green from La-Di-Da are totally on my list.
