Yapa Beauty - Nail polish

Hey guys,
Here’s another nail polish / swatches review of the Vegan Friendly, 7Free beauty brand YAPA.
One thing that seems to be different from Yapa vs. Zoya nail lacquers is the consistency.  The Yapa nail polishes seem to glide on a bit thinner.  With that may come some streaking, out of the 5 shown I found My Valentine, Will You Marry Me? and Ava were the least streaky and they lasted up to 7 days without chips.  Another key feature that i noticed is that the Yapa lacquers dry extremely quickly prior to adding a top coat.  This is most definitely a plus in my book!
With an $18 price tag per bottle, Yapa falls into the “higher end” category for nail lacquers.  I would say if you’re looking for an alternative to Zoya and want a long lasting polish, give Yapa a try.  Take a look at my detailed swatch and review video on YouTube below.

Yapa Nail Lacquers can be found on Amazon.com as well as Yapabeauty.com

Here are swatches of the 5 Yapa Nail Lacquers that were sent to me.

My Valentine – $18

One of my top picks from the 5 polishes that were sent to me.  Yapa My Valentine is a warm, creamy cherry red.  No streak issues.  Opaque after 2 coats.

My Valentine - Yapa Beauty
Will You Marry Me? – $18
Warm deeper red.  No streaks – 2 coats.

Will You Marry Me - Yapa Beauty

Amelia – $18

Love the color, but not a fan of the nail polish formula.  Extremely streaky – shown with 3 coats.

Amelia- Yapa Beauty

Ava – $18
Dusty cream plum.  Another top pick.  No streaks – 2 coats.

Florence – $18

Not my favorite.  A cool tone medium chocolate.  Streaky – 2 coats.

Let me know your thoughts… would you pick up a bottle of YAPA to try?  Is it important to you to use non-toxic brands like Yapa and Zoya?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.
