Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

Zoya MatteVelvet is back!

When I found out I’d be swatching the re-release of these six fabulous polishes from Zoya’s Matte Velvet collection I nearly fell out of my chair! I’ve seen some swatches before and in my opinion they are among the velvetiest mattes I’ve ever laid eyes on. I couldn’t wait to share them with you. So here they are! Oh, and you can order them now!

I'm a bit of a stickler for detail so is it MatteVelvet or Matte Velvet? Who cares?! They are gorgeous. Read on...

And here is a little inspiration for you! Try blinding up your mattes! I have so many ideas now. What have you come up with? I’d love to see your comments and grab some ideas from you.

The fun possibilities are endless with these shimmery mattes! Bling up the velvet with gems and even a Zoya Pixie Dust like Carter!

All in all I loved all if the fast drying formulas. They all were a breeze to apply as well. I can’t speak for wear as of yet. That will be in a later post. I highly recommend these beauties!

Please Note: 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.

ZOYA IS THE HEALTHY COLOR OF FASHION! **BIG5FREE: Formula contains no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene or camphor. These sell for $9 (US) each. Zoya MATTEVELVET* colors are available exclusively on Zoya.com and Ulta Stores.
