The Zoya MatteVelvet Collection

Hmm speaking of Halloween - look who came back from the dead! The freakin' MatteVelvet Collection from Zoya. If these has been tugging on your heart strings for awhile, they can be yours once again :D I have review and swatches of each color for your viewing pleasure, after the jump of course.

Zoya Posh

Posh is described as a "medium cool-toned wine red with metallic red shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish". This is a super pretty matte red polish. There's nothing not to like about this! I did 2 coats of Posh. I had no issues with application and dry time was quick.


Zoya Harlow

This is Harlow "a rich, saturated rose plum packed with sparkling metallic shimmer in a velvety MATTEVELVET finish". This was the one I wanted so badly when they did the 1st rerelease last year.  What a beautiful color, and that shimmer just makes it a million times more awesome! I did 2 coats of Harlow. Application was easy to work with and dry time was awesome

Zoya Veruschka

Veruschka is "a deep evergreen garnished with strong metallic shimmer in a velvety MATTEVELVET finish". HELLLLOOO - yes please! Absolutely gorgeous, what an awesome shade to carry us into the winter season. This was what I was most excited for *faints*. I did 3 coats of Veruschka. There was some balding where my nail curves that required the 3rd coat. Otherwise, no issues, easy application and great dry time.

Zoya Savita

YOU. ARE. SO. FREAKIN. BEAUTIFULLLLLL TO MEEEEEE! Savita is a "bold, vibrant medium purple with strong red and gold shimmer with a velvet MATTEVELVET finish". Be still my heart. This quickly ended up as my favorite from this collection. HOLY MOLY.  Beautiful color. Plus, when you add top coat, GOOD LORD. POW POW!!!! (what?) I did 2 coats of Savita. Application was smooth, easy to work with. No issues with dry time.


Zoya Loredana

Loredana is a "medium gunmetal grey, packed with silvery shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish". While this is a gorgeous grey, I just wasn't a fan of how it looked against my skin. Sad day. I did 3 coats of Loredana. I ran into the same issue as Veruschka, balding along the curvature of my nail bed. But a 3rd coat quickly took care of that. Application was wonderful and dry time was awesome.

Zoya Dovima

Dovima is a "smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish". Another one I'm struggling with liking against my skin. However, with top coat, when I got out into the sun I literally went :O "OOOOOOOOOHHHH" hahaha.  I like this one better than the grey. I did 2 coats of Dovima. No issues up on application or dry time :]

That was fun swatch session! Zoya, for the love of my sanity, please do more matte collections. If I had to choose my favorites, I'd have to go with Veruschka and Savita. Sadly, I don't have the matte top coat to review. I do want to give it a shot though! For $10, I hope it's good LOL

TTYL!
