If You're Not Adding Nail Polish to Your Zara Cart, You're Missing Out—10 to Try

Zara is one of our favorite one-stop-shops for fashion, yes, but also for beauty. The makeup is magical, the fragrances are addictive, and the nail polish (yes, Zara makes nail polish!) is some of the best we've tried. And we've tried lots. Obviously, because it's Zara, the shade selection couldn't be more on-the-dot (just wait until you start scrolling in a second), but the formula, wear, and finish of the brand's polishes are equally sublime. 

Designed with high-performance, durable wear top of mind, you'd never know each formula is carefully made with natural, non-traditional polish ingredients. Not to mention that there are a variety of finishes to choose from including matte, pearl, and glitter, and the precision brush makes the application mess-free and easy-breezy. In our eyes, no Zara shopping cart is complete without a few of the brand's best nail polishes, so we took the guesswork out of the selection process by highlighting all of our favorites below. Keep scrolling! 10 of the best Zara nail polishes are just ahead. 


I'm deeply obsessed with shades of plum and raisin (think a striking amalgamation between brown and purple) because they're less expected than a straightforward maroon, burgundy, or purple. Wear this hue from Zara any time of the year, although it's especially great in the cooler months. 


A pretty nude is the backbone of any nail polish collection. It's timeless and you'll never get sick of it. 

Old Rose

There's something about a dusty rose nail polish that feels simultaneously fresh and vintage. It's the most interesting, on-trend way to do pink. 


You heard it here first: Brown (especially a rich, buttery cocoa shade like this one) is probably the most underrated nail polish color on earth. It's a great neutral option when you want something a little less predictable than your basic nude, white, or black. (And trust me—you'll be surprised by how universally flattering it is.)

Shock of Blue

I'm not usually one for a Rainbow Brite color palette when it comes to my nails, but I just can't recover from how stunning this cobalt blue is. You'll look cool and put together no matter what you're wearing as long as this is on your tips. Without a doubt, it's one of Zara's best.

Ballerina Pink

It doesn't get any more elegant than this satiny ballet pink. It's the ultimate antidote when you want something effortless, versatile, and chic, but not too loud.


When it comes to a classic red (a non-negotiable in any polish rotation, IMO), the more retro the better in my eyes. This tomato hue is my favorite crimson option from Zara because it doesn't tread too blue-red, too orange, or too pink. 


I don't care who you are or what your aesthetic is, every single person needs a black nail polish in their wardrobe of bottles. Zara makes a great stormy number called Thunder.

Crazy Ways

The verdant nail trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon. This perfect shade of kelly green is my fave of all of Zara's greens. 


As the name might suggest, think of this polish as the ultimate babydoll pink—not too light and not too bright. 

Some Honorable Mentions

Whether you wear it alone or as a gloss-inducing topcoat, a clear nail polish is a must. 

If you're a nail minimalist, look no further. It's a unique formula that unifies the tone of the nail by blurring imperfections. You're left with a barely there, your-nails-but-better natural finish.

If you've watched the second season of The White Lotus, you already know what I'm about say: This is the best nail polish I've found in order to re-create Portia's unforgettable chartreuse mani. (Zara actually doesn't list the shade name on its site, however!)

I love jewel-toned nail polishes, but this emerald number named I Just Called is unmatched. 

If you love purple, dip into this juicy grape. 

This orangey shade of poppy screams glamour. 

Don't sleep on an aquatic shade of navy—it's an equally cool, slightly softer take on black that's remarkably flattering. 

You can't not have a bright pink in your stash of nail polishes. This fuchsia one from Zara is a fan-favorite. 

This is such a dreamy shade of blue. Whether it reminds you of your favorite pair of jeans or a dusky sky, it's sure to be one of your most-used nail polishes.
