Twinsie Tuesday - Favorite Nail Polish Brand

For today's Twinsie Tuesday theme, I immediately knew what polish I was going to use (well, the brand anyway)! 

If you know me, I'm sure you've already guessed it by now... my favorite brand is Zoya!

My top two favorite brands are Zoya and China Glaze. It was really difficult to choose between the two! Ultimately, it came down to price. I only buy from Zoya when they have promotions, so I normally pay around $4-5, half-price, for them. Plus, I can get them online more readily than ChG and I much prefer shopping via computer. While China Glaze does have better neons, Zoya's textured Pixie Dusts are the absolute best around! Neither brand has knock-out holos, that award goes to Color Club's Halo Hues, but that's another tale for another day. China Glaze does seem to have a much better variety, but I just gravitate to the Zoya shelf more often. So I went with Zoya.

Of course I couldn't do just a simple swatch for this mani. I used Dita for the base on most of my nails and for the penguins' scarves, then used Raven and Jacqueline for my penguin accents. Their noses are done with Arizona.

I'm curious to know what the other Twinsies' favorite polish brands are!
