As soon as Zoya Kelly arrived yesterday I had to see it again Ulta Smoke Screen. I knew when I ordered it they would be similar colors, but I was hoping they wouldn’t be identical. They are. Maybe you can see some slight difference on the nail, because I certainly can’t:
Both brands formulas have their pluses and minuses. Zoya polishes always get insane tipwear even with using Orly Bonder under it and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear as a top coat after about 36 hours. So the Ulta has much better durability, but it can be difficult to get dry even with Seche Vite. Both brands are “Big 3 Free”, but Zoya claims their products are vegan. The Ulta’s though are cheaper, especially if you get them on a sale. So really it comes down to personal preference.
Speaking of Zoya, they’re running a special on their Color Lock system until tomorrow (Nov. 17th). If you buy the full size set you get 6 full size polishes for free, and if you buy the mini set you get two full size polishes for free. Just click on the picture below for details:
