Zoya MatteVelvet Winter Holiday 2015

Happy holiday season!  Zoya’s holiday offering is a new line of their MatteVelvet series.  Earlier this year, they re-released 6 MatteVelvet shades…there are some similarities, but you’ve got to get them all!

Zoya MatteVelvet 2015 - Amal

Amal (two coats):  classic crimson red with a ruby red pearl fleck

Zoya MatteVelvet 2015 - Aspen

Aspen (two coats):  sparkling arctic white with a micronized diamond pearl fleck

Zoya MatteVelvet 2015 - Honor Verushka

Honor (two coats):  true emerald green with a tone on tone emerald pearl fleck

Zoya MatteVelvet 2015 - Iris

Iris (two coats):  deep amethyst with a fuchsia pearl fleck

Zoya MatteVelvet 2015 - Sue

Sue (two coats):  soft champagne gold with a multi-hued oyster shell pearl fleck

Zoya MatteVelvet 2015 - Yves

Yves (two coats):  deep sapphire in between indigo and royal blue with a blue pearl fleck

The formula is easy flowing and applies well.  Aspen is the most difficult due to the white pigment and may need 3 thin coats.  All are shown with top coat on the ring fingernail.

One may worry, wait, hasn’t Zoya done some of these shades before?  Yes, but they are different enough to justify owning both.
