Despite it being released before I was even born, Zoya Song immediately calls to mind the Neil Diamond tune named Song Sung Blue.
While I was painting my nails, I was humming the chorus before I even made the connection.
But this blue nail polish from the Zoya NYFW 2012 Collection won’t leave you weeping like a willow.
If you’re like me and tend to reach for saturated shades, this one doesn’t disappoint! It’s a stunning jewel-tone that I feel plays very well with many different skin tones from the fairest to the richest.

Zoya Song Review
I love how Zoya describes this blue as Egyptian because that came to mind when I saw the bottle.
It’s an alluring blue that got me a lot of unsolicited compliments.
(Actually, I rarely go up to people and show them my nails unless it’s nail art. In that case, I may ask people if they can tell what it is! Asking my mom is usually the funniest because a lot of times she doesn’t ‘get’ my nail art and ‘sees’ something else in my design that wasn’t intended.)
But…going back to Song by Zoya! It’s a strong sapphire blue that would be stunning to use as a base for galaxy nail art.
Song by Zoya has a sparkly finish that looks like micro-glitter. From far away, it looks like a metallic, glowy finish, but when you see it up close, you can see the individual pieces of tiny glitter. It catches the light and gives the overall polish a seductive appearance.
Also important to note is that the finish is smooth, not gritty like a traditional glitter.
Application & Formula
Oh my goodness, this polish was pretty close to being fully opaque in a single coat. Even if you just use a thin coat, it covers so well.
The formula is easy to control with the Zoya brush, and I had no problems getting the polish to level out and look even. It was a joy to use this formula! No hassles. No struggles. I like polishes that make it easier for us!
All Zoya nail polishes are not only cruelty-free, but they’re also vegan! So if you’re making conscious shopping choices to make a difference, this is a great brand to support.
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
I could never get tired of blues like this – they’re rich, and they apply like a dream. Plus if you think it’s not unique enough for you, just slap on a glittery top coat, and trust me…it’ll look like a starry night sky!
Does a song ever pop into your head when you see the name of a nail polish? How do you cheer yourself up when you’re feeling blue?
