Limited Edition: Zoya Matte Velvet Collection
This Fall, Zoya introduces a limited edition collection of three fabulous matte nail polishes.
Before I get to all the goodies, let's take a minute go over the formula. First off, Matte nail polishes generally require no topcoat or basecoat for best results. One main reason being, matte and glossy textures are two different apples. So, when you mix both together the outcome may be a collision of formula's.
With all the Matte polishes being released this Fall, hopefully we'll see more topcoats and basecoat's becoming readily available.
The Application: Smooth, opaque and dries super fast. All you'll need is two coats to achieve bottle color. No application problems, perfect!
Overall, I'm really impressesd with Zoya's Matte's. I know many of us aren't too keen on a flatte looking polish, but the shimmer in these gives a little boost, which may be a little more practical for some.
Check out the swatches.
Loredana, a steel gray with shimmer.
Posh couldn't be named better. Classy, elegant and super hot for Fall! Described as a red wine matte with shimmer.
Domiva, a rich black matte with rainbow shimmer.
Zoya's Matte Velvet collection is a limited edition release and is only available at Art of Beauty.

These certainly make up for OPI's matte collection. Too bad they didn't make more than 3 colors.
