Eco-Friendly Tip: Recycle Your Nail Polish Bottles

Happy Earth Day! We all know that recycling your water bottles, plastic bags, and newspapers can help reduce our waste. But what else can you do to shrink your carbon footprint? In honor of being green, is hosting a nail polish exchange, where you can trade in 6 bottles of old nail polish bottles for 6 brand new bottles of Zoya varnishes at $4 a bottle for shipping and processing. Note that the nail polish bottles you send in cannot be Zoya, Qtica, or Nocti polishes. Zoya promises your old bottles will be disposed according to the Environmental Policy Guidelines (EPA). What’s even better is that all Zoya nail polish bottles are free of formaldehyde, toluene, campor- and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). In other words, they’re made of eco-friendly materials.

This promotion only lasts until Wednesday, April 27 (11:59 EST) so send in your old nail polish bottles as soon as possible. To participate in the exchange, go onto and pick out at least 6 (maximum 24) of your favorite colors and use their Earth Day code at checkout, which will adjusts your receipt. When you receive your Zoya nail polishes, ship back your old nail polish bottles.

Zoya nail polish usually sells at $8 a bottle, not including shipping and handling, so $4 for shipping and handling is an absolute steal! This is a great opportunity to make sure your old nail polish bottles are disposed properly and stock up on some trendy summer colors.
