Zoya Matte Velvet Holiday 2014

zoya-matte-velvet-collection

I was exited to get a sample of the Matte Velvet line and check out this beautiful new collection. This 6 color collection of matte polishes are to be worn on their own no base or top coat needed. Once the color dries it finishes with a velvety matte finish. Check out the colors from this collection all the photos are taken with two coats of polish.

zoya harlow and dovima

Dovima is a smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety matte finish. I love the way this looks on, it looks like chalkboard paint. Would be a great base for nail art.

Harlow is a rosy plum shade with a metallic shimmer and a velvety matte finish. I thought this shade would be too pinky but it has the most gorgeous plum base. Definitely a standout color from the collection.

zoya savita and verushka

Savita is a bold, vibrant medium with strong red and gold shimmer. I am not usually a fan or purple nail colors but the matte look mixed with the depth of the red and gold shimmer make this a standout purple I would wear anytime.

Veruschka is a deep evergreen shade with a a strong metallic shimmer in a  velvety matte finish. Could this be anymore perfect for Christmas? This is such a beautiful color on and I find myself loving it more every time I wear it.

 

zpya posh and loredana

 

Posh  is a  cool toned wine red shade with metallic red shimmer and a velvet matte finish. This is a classic shade with a matte twist.

Loredana is a medium gunmetal grey packed with silver shimmer and a shimmery matte finish. This is not a shade I was choose on my own so I am suprised how much I love it. I love the depth of the color and found it very wearable.

Overall I am very impressed with the Zoya Matte Velvet collection. I loved the matte finish and found this still wore for 3-4 days without chipping or fading. Some colors even lasted a bit longer. This is a beautiful collection and would make great stocking stuffers or a secret Santa gift.

New! Zoya Ultra Pixie Dust Fall 2014

Zoya-Fall-2014-Ultra-PixieDust-Collection-2

Zoya has launched a new collection of Pixie Dust shades foe Fall. The new Zoya Ultra Pixie Dust is a collection of 3 shades perfect for Fall and the holidays.

They might look like another set of glitter polishes but these are actually quite different. The polish base dries to a matte finish and there are several sizes of glitter which make for a very unique and pretty look. And I generally hate removing glitter polishes but found this line was pretty easy to remove.

zoya arianna

(Yes I did get polish all over the bottle and my fingers. The results of trying to do a mani on the couch while I was exhausted.) 

Arianna – Arianna by Zoya can be best described as a blue-toned red wine textured PixieDust with Mega Hex particles. I have been wearing this shade for a few days and I love it. I had a lady tell me it looks like Dorothy’s ruby red slippers, perfect description.

zoya noir

Noir – Can be best described as a deep, vampy plum textured PixieDust with red mega hex particles. I love the purple shade of this very grape like, perfect shade for Fall.

zoya oswin

Oswin – Can be best described as a true red textured PixieDust with crimson mega hex sparkles. Pretty basic, red base with red glitter and texture.  This shade dried the most matte of the three, a very pretty red this would be great for the holidays.

The directions say to use 3 coats but I had great coverage with just two coats. One trick this polish is make sure you let each coat dry before adding the next one. I found all three shades dried really quickly.

Zoya Fall 2014: ENTICE and IGNITE

zoya entice

Zoya Entice Collection

All the swatches are taken with one coat of polish. So you can see just how great these colors look even with a single coat.

zoya veronica 2

Veronica- a deep reddened-berry colored creme. Love the berry red shade for fall.

Zoya Ryan

Ryan -  a dark navy blue creme.  A very dark blue navy, I love how dark it is but it still is obviously a blue shade not black.

zoya genevie

Geneviev – A very gray blue shade with a tiny hint of shimmer. I love this shade on, such a beautiful color.

zoya margo

Margo –  A  purple creme with red undertones. Love this as a mani and pedi color.

zoya claire

Claire – A very sexy burgundy creme.  Made for Fall and the perfect va va voom shade for date night! 

zoya Nyssa

Nyssa – The looked of milk chocolate. I never thought I would like brown nail polish, but Nyssa is such a beautiful and wearable Fall shade. 

I really love the Entice Collection, the bright vibrant colors are perfect for fall. And I love that they look great with one coat or two. And they are very fade and chip resistant.

zoya ignite

Zoya Ignite Collection

zoya autumn

Autumn – The epitome of fall this metallic orange shade with golden shimmer has me ready to hang my Fall wreath. Much more wearable than I expected but it was my lease favorite of the two collections. I think this color would be gorgeous on warm skin tones.

zoya yuna

Yuna –  A soft gray with specks of gold and a faint green shimmer. I love this shade, the gray color is simply beautiful.

zoya teigen

Teigen – A sparkly red raspberry with gold and red shimmer. One coat of this is pretty, two coats and I am in love. I painted my nails and gave my niece a mani/pedi with Teigen I love it so much.  Great for now and would be beautiful for Christmas and Valentines.

zoya india

India – Another showstopper this deep burgundy shade has red and gold shimmer that really makes it shine.

zoya remy

 

Remy – Even Ariel would trade her fins for this shade. A gorgeous ocean blue green with blue and gold shimmer. The more I look at this color the more I love it.

Zoya Sansa

Sansa – One of my favorites at first look. A gorgeous deep purple with gold and purple shimmer this color is my new go to Fall shade.

The Ignite collection is one of my favorites in a very long time. The colors are all beautiful the hardest part is choosing what color to wear. I love that they have a shimmery glitter but are still easy to remove. And the very best part even on my stubborn nails this polish wears for days without fading or chipping. I’m not sure how Zoya does it but I’m hooked!
