Zoya MatteVelvet Winter/Holiday collection

Today I’ll be reviewing the new (and available now) Zoya MatteVelvet Winter/Holiday 2015 collection. Let me preface by saying that these shades are completely different than the last collection…in case you were wondering! Zoya says, “The best-selling, MATTEVELVET finish returns this holiday season with six new shades. Each nail polish perfectly opaque, matte color with that extra special ZOYA MATTEVELVET fleck finish everyone loves.” Let’s take a look at what you’ll be wanting!

The Zoya MatteVelvet nail colors to slip into this Winter/Holiday season. From left: Aspen, Amal, Honor, Iris, Sue and Yves.

I’ll start with Aspen. She’s a clean, crisp, snowy white with the prettiest diamond pearl fleck. So hard to capture but believe me, she’s gorgeous!

Aspen, 2 coats, is described as: Aspen (ZP814) - a sparkling arctic white with a micronized diamond pearl fleck.

Aspen, 2 coats, is described as: Aspen (ZP814) – a sparkling artic white with a micronized diamond pearl fleck.

Next is Amal, a classic crimson ruby-red. So perfect for the holidays!

Amal, 2 coats, is described as: Amal (ZP816) – a classic crimson red with a ruby-red pearl fleck.

Honor is one of those essential greens for your holiday nailwear!

Honor, 2 coats, is described as: Honor (ZP819) - a true emerald-green with a tone on tone emerald pearl fleck.

Honor, 2 coats, is described as: Honor (ZP819) – a true emerald green with a tone on tone emerald pearl fleck.

Iris is the perfect name for this regal amethyst purple.

Iris, 2 coats, is described as: Iris (ZP817) - a deep amethyst with a fuchsia pearl fleck.

Iris, 2 coats, is described as: Iris (ZP817) – a deep amethyst with a fuchsia pearl fleck.

Sue, she’s a delicate champagne gold with oyster pearl fleck. The sheerest of the bunch, so 2-3 coats will do the trick.

Sue, 2 coats, is described as: Sue (ZP815) - a soft champagne gold with a multi-hued oyster shell pearl fleck.

Sue, 2 coats, is described as: Sue (ZP815) – a soft champagne gold with a multi-hued oyster shell pearl fleck.

And last is Yves. A deep sapphire blue.

Yves, 1-2 coats, is described as: Yves (ZP818) - a deep sapphire that's midway in between indigo and royal blue with a blue pearl fleck.

Yves, 1-2 coats, is described as: Yves (ZP818) – a deep sapphire that’s midway in between indigo and royal blue with a blue pearl fleck.

Conclusion: I always love the MatteVelvets and these shades for 2015 are all gorgeous. I can’t pick a favorite! But I DO love how Yves and Iris look on me. I want you to know they are all easy to apply and fairly quick drying. You can (although Zoya advises against it, see below) apply a gloss topcoat for a shiny look and it really brings out the hidden treasures of sparkle within. They suggest to apply a thin coat of the Matte Velvet Topcoat to retain the velvety appearance. They also suggest no base coat is needed. I will have to mention that I did leave Yves (the deep blue) on my bare nails overnight and experienced slight staining. That will go away, but I think a base coat on this one would have not allowed stains. Do not let this minor issue steer you away from experiencing lovely Yves!

NOTE: MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, glossy top coat or speed dryer. 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. To extend wear, apply one coat of the Zoya Matte Velvet Topcoat over your favorite matte shades after polish is completely dry. AVAILABLE NOW!

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!

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...
