Zoya Nail Polish: Art of Beauty - About Us

Designed for professionals by professionals...

Art of Beauty was founded in 1986 by Zoya and Michael Reyzis. They had a shared vision, which evolved from a small nail salon into a spa focusing on natural nails, skin care and alternative European herbal treatments. Today, the company has grown to become a manufacturer of the most innovative professional beauty products ever created.

Zoya, originally a classical pianist in Russia, earned her Cosmetology license in 1979 when she and her husband Michael immigrated to the United States. While pianist jobs were limited, the world of cosmetology offered a new profession and a means by which to build a new career. Through Zoya’s hard work, and a demand for quality and healthy, natural ingredients for her clients, it became evident that there was a need for the perfect products. Responding to his wife’s requests. Michael, an advanced chemist, developed and patented unique products such as anti-wrinkle treatments and shampoo and conditioning treatments for the salon & spa. He also created the first working fast drying topcoat and the longest wearing, formaldehyde free natural nail polish, revolutionizing the nail industry.

Today, Zoya, Michael and everyone at Art of Beauty focus on creating the highest quality products available to professional salons and spas. Through brands like Zoya Professional Nail Lacquers (Zoya nail polish) and Treatments, Qtica Treatments (Qtica balms) and Qtica Smart Spa, Art of Beauty offers salons and spas superior quality, convenience and incredible value. As the first to remove toxic ingredients such as toluene, formaldehyde and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) from its formulations, Art of Beauty maintains its focus on the health and well being of salons, spas and consumers.

You will find Art of Beauty brands in the world’s best salons, spas and resorts; not in discount stores. Our award-winning products continuously receive praise from healthy and beauty experts, top fashion publications and consumers.

The Zoya Earth Day Polish Exchange is a HUUUGE Success

As Paris Hilton would say its been a "HUUUGE" week at Zoya.

There has been absolutely no rest for Zoya Nail Polish during Earth Week... Thousands of toxic, unwanted nail polishes (other brands) have been returned as part of the Zoya Earth Day Polish Exchange. Needless to say, the Art of Beauty (makers of Zoya) crew has been feverishly working to get new polishes sent out. Word has it that they are "more than ready" for the weekend.

If you haven't traded-in your old polish yet the exchange is a great way to get rid the old and bring in hot new Zoya spring and summer colors (yes, the exchange is good on ALL the shades you have been drooling over). Plus it saves you money and leaves you feeling good about doing something to help the planet in honor of Earth Day.

Even though Earth Week is ending you still have time left to get your new non-toxic colors. The exchange ends June 1st. You can be green all year long by using Zoya Nail Polish.

Thanks to all of our great Zoya fans for spreading the word about the Zoya Earth Day Polish Exchange!
