This Cult-Classic Nail Polish Brand Has 400 Colors—Here Are the 30 Most-Wanted

If you were to look into my cabinet of nail polish (yes, I have an entire cabinet dedicated to the stuff), you would see a glossy ensemble of bottles breaking down to roughly the following: 25% Olive & June, 10% OPI, 10% Essie, 5% other, and 50% Zoya.

Even though Zoya isn't as well-known or legendary as other fan-favorite lacquer brands like OPI and Essie, it's been an overwhelming staple in my at-home manicure game since I was in high school. (Fun fact: The brand has been around since 1986.) Fast-forward 10 years, and I'm still collecting its head-turning nail polish colors at an alarming rate—even by beauty-editor standards. 

Not only does Zoya have over 400 bold and beautiful hues to decorate your tips with, but it also offers different brush sizes for your bottles (so handy) and infinite collections with a mesmerizing range of glitter, shimmer, and textures. (Not to mention it makes one of the least-toxic formulations on the market thanks to its 10-free ingredient standards.) Since, as we mentioned, there is a lot—aka 400-plus bottles—of ground to cover when shopping the brand, we're sharing 30 of the most popular hues just below. Keep scrolling for all of Zoya's best-selling nail polish options!

Alicia

This isn't your average metallic silver nail polish. The best-selling holographic shade will make your fingertips look even more fluttery thanks to the ever-so-subtle hints of gold. 

Mia

If ballet-slipper pink is your polish MO, you'll love this soft dusty mauve boasting a glossy cream finish. It's now unavailable at most online retailers, but you can still snap it up on Zoya's website. 

Brighton

Think of this peppy shade as your favorite nude 2.0. Despite the shimmery finish, it's surprisingly full-coverage, which we love. You'll only need one or two coats. 

Carmen

For all of you classic-red-nail-polish lovers, this red-hot best-selling shade from Zoya is for you. Surging with Old Hollywood glamour, it's a "bright, clean, medium true-red in a glossy creme finish," according to the brand's website.

Aurora

Glitter fiends, beware. This high-wattage purple polish is not for the faint of heart. Described as a "medium sugarplum purple," it boasts a potent concentration of micro-fine diamond holographic glitter. 

Merida

Like a shimmering, rain-slicked evergreen forest for your fingers, this high-demand shade is lush, holographic, and super-pigmented after just two coats. 

McKenna

A pretty pearlescent natural that's one part pink, one part creamy almond. 

Bela

Ballet Slippers by Essie could be one of the most beloved nail polish colors of all time, and this dreamy shade from Zoya would be its elegant equivalent. You can wear it alone as a soft pink sheer, or you can add it to your French-manicure arsenal.

Godiva PixieDust

This best-of-the-best nail polish from Zoya belongs to the brand's textured sparkle collection called PixieDust. Consider it a sugar-frosted nude. 

Courtney

A moodier take on a classic red, this is a full-coverage shade of crimson the brand describes as a "deep red beet" hue. 

Isa

I'm biased, but Isa is one of my favorites from Zoya. (I'm fanatical about anything purple.) A rich, royal blue–purple, it boasts the most benign metallic pearl finish for a little flash of something extra.

Joni

Not quite pink, not quite purple, this is a juicy shade of dusty plum that looks stunning on your tips. 

Rue

Everyone needs a classic hue this like this in their polish arsenal. It's a beloved natural color from the brand, full-coverage in payoff, and a pillowy blush cream. Think of it as the color you can wear over and over again and never get sick of.

Madeline

Madeline is another great neutral option—Zoya describes this ever-popular shade as a "full-coverage, muted rose cream."

Lola

How eye-catching is this striking shade of fuchsia? The subtle twist of blue-violet duo-chrome shimmer intensifies the fiery shade that much further. 

Dakota

A rich dark cherry, Dakota is a fall and winter staple.

Kelly

Kelly meets anyone halfway who may be looking for a cool-toned middle ground between dramatic black and opaque white. Essentially, it's the perfect shade of gray.

Dove

Looking for something a hint lighter? This best-selling Zoya nail polish called Dove does its name justice—it's your quintessential dove gray with a luxe, glossy-cream finish. 

Leia

Fittingly, Leia is an an-out-of-this-world beautiful addition to your polish collection. Galactically inspired, this nail polish color is a sheer, opalescent number brimming with pretty white with flecks of fuchsia, green, and gold. 

Rumor

Rumor has it that this is one of the absolute best shades to invest in for fall. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) According to the brand, it's a full-coverage mauve-taupe color that imparts a touch of subtle shimmer.

Jordan

Not ready to think about fall and winter yet? Try Jordan, a vibrant blossom of petal pink. 

Rachael

Dark and brooding, this shade of wine is the perfect pick for anyone who prioritizes deep and vampy nail polish shades.

Blu

We're obsessed with a great, light-wash denim here at WWW, and this shade called Blu serves the same vibe up in the dreamiest way for nails. It's incredibly flattering, and it just so happens to be one of our favorite pastel hues for spring and summer or even icy winter.

Cosmo Magical PixieDust

Another home run from Zoya's best-selling textured PixieDust collection, this mesmerizing nail polish color is a crystal-coated silver sprinkled with larger particles of mega hex iridescent glitter. (It's like you're wearing shooting stars on your nails.)

Jack

Meet Jack—Zoya's fan-favorite nude-cream reminiscent of a frothy capp.

Beth

Take it from someone who owns upward of 200 nail polish bottles (hey, I'm not proud), Beth, simply put, is one of the most stunning nail polish colors on the market. I repaint my nails with this metallic champagne over and over any time of the year.

Sonja

Is it coral? Red? Pink? Think of Sonja as the perfect fusion of every shade of flattering crimson. It also just screams summer. 

Tara

Tara is one of the most satisfying colors—a velvety-smooth plum shade that's the perfect hybrid between red and purple. 

Olivera

We'd buy this best-selling Zoya nail color based on its enchanting name alone. Then again, the metallic medley of indigo, green, and purple is just as captivating.

Sailor

Last but not least, another personal favorite, Sailor. It's the prettiest in-between shade if you're debating between gray, navy, or black, and the finish is wonderfully creamy and glossy.
