Winter Collection: Zoya MatteVelvet Swatches
|Collection: Zoya MatteVelvet Winter Collection, Matte Nail Lacquer 0.5 oz|
|Buy it: Art of Beauty, Professional Salons|
It's another matte edition Divas and before you roll your eyes or shrug your shoulders, Zoya's new shimmering MatteVelvet collection is worth paying attention to!
Unlike the Fall release, these applied perfectly! So flawlessly that I thought the formula had been recalculated, but they haven't; every pigment is different. And the drying time isn't lightening speed either; you have plenty of time to swipe 3, 4, or even 5 strokes with no visible streak lines. Go Zoya!
Are you ready for some swatches?
Don't ask me how to pronounce Veruschka, but the color is absolutely to die for. A forest green with intense shimmer that looks almost holographic with a glossy top coat. Gorg and my favorite by far!
Harlow is a magenta pink matte.
Savita is a purple with blue undertones; not your traditional blurple, but there's definitely blue in there. And with a glossy top coat, the shimmering mattes really come to life!
Overall, Super Hotness! Quite honestly, if the staying power was there, five star rating in my book. Good application, formula and Big 3 Free. Versatile - you can wear them matte or glossy.
What do you think of the Winter Mattes? Love them, Hate them? Have a wonderful weekend!

These are so gorgeous. I am truly on the fence because I wish they didn\'t chip so fast.

This may be a stupid question, but how do you apply a top coat to these types of matte polishes? Does it go on easily? I never know how long to let my nails dry before applying top coats and these seem like they'd be particularly tricky! I just ordered all 3--so pretty!

I really like the green and will probably buy it. The others are so, so and I don't feel they are worth my money.

I already have these and the green is my favorite. I haven't worn them yet. At least I can put a topcoat over it if I want some staying power.
