It's the return of the Zoya Matte Velvet collection! These mattes all have a soft focus finish with a hint of shimmer. And they are SO pretty...perfect for the fall and winter seasons!
As with most matte polishes, no base or topcoat is needed. In fact, the application is much easier when the base coat is skipped. The wear time for matte formulas is not as long as your typical glossy finish either. But don't let that deter you! I have gathered some ways to help a matte polish last as well as application tips in a previous post you can view *here*.
Now, on to the polish!
Loredana is a gunmetal shade. This is 3 coats.
Posh is a festive and chic red. This is 2 coats.
Harlow is a magenta purple. The shimmer in this is a bit more large than the others in this collection. This is 2 coats.
Savita is a bright, blue-based purple. This one is a favorite of mine! This is 2 coats.
Veruschka is an emerald green. This one really looks like velvet! This is 2 coats.
And finally, we have Dovima. A charcoal black. This is 2 coats. This is the only one that for me had a more satin like finish compared to the rest.
I have been a fan of Zoya since before these mattes were first discontinued, and always wished I could have gotten them. So if you are anything like me, don't hesitate on these!
The Matte Velvet collection is currently available at Zoya.com for $9.
Do you own these beauties yet or plan to buy them?
