ZOYA nail polishes have been in my wish list for a couple of months. And then one day I got an e-mail from ZOYA about their special “3 for $15”. Of course I couldn’t miss this one. With shipping and tax I paid $21, which is a good price anyways.
BIG5FREE! Ultra-long wearing, toxin free nail polish and treatment formulas contains no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl phthalate or camphor.
ZOYA matte velvet lacquers collection caught my attention instantly. I’ve chosen 3 very beautiful and deep shades…. a red, a green and a purple. I didn’t get any pastel or neon for spring/summer… I am never influenced by season or trend when it comes to colors. I can wear black nail polish all summer and feel absolutely amazing :)
MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear.
Volume: 0.5 fl. oz. / 15ml
Color: Posh (red), Savita (purple), Veruschka (green)
Staying Power: 1.5-2 days and then I start getting chipping
These nail polishes have a very unique finish. It is not flat matte, it is very velvety matte. All of the nail polishes are infused with fine glitter and that creates that velvety finish.
They have a regular brush, I would prefer it to be a little bit wider.
1. ZOYA Posh Matte Velvet Lacquer – oh it is so pretty. A true red with red shimmer in it. Looks gorgeous on the nails. I don’t know why but out of three nail polishes I’ve got, this one was applying not as even as the other two.
2. ZOYA Savita Matte Velvet Lacquer – another stunner. Packed with gold and red shimmer. Oh la la… I was wearing it a lot.
3. ZOYA Veruschka Matte Velvet Lacquer – forest green with a strong green shimmer. The green is so deep just how I like it. I’d say Veruschka is my favorite nail polish out of all 3 :)
Keep in mind that these nail polishes are not long-lasting. Don’t expect to have them on for 4-5 days. It’s just not gonna happen.
I loved that none of these nail polishes stained my nails. And I was so worried for the red color… But it didn’t happen.
You have to work fast when you apply them. They dry pretty quick. I suggest you applying 2-3 thin layers or you can end up with a very uneven surface.
I really liked all these nail polishes. ZOYA did a great job. It’s a pity they don’t have a lot of colors. There 5 shades in the Matte Velvety line, what a shame. That would be my only complaint. I want more shades!!!!
I would like to hear if you have any of these? Do you like ZOYA nail polishes?
