Zoya Matte Velvet Collection – Re-released!




I was a big fat swatching failure this weekend. I thought that I would have time to do a lot of swatching, but I ended up just being lazy and watching tons of movies. Hey, it was a relaxing weekend, sort of, so I guess it’s all cool. On Saturday I picked up my new camera and shed imaginary tears of frustration because I am a tech dunce and have been having a lot of issues trying to get all the settings just right. It’s not a complicated camera, but it’s complicated to me! So I’m sorry if my pictures look off or different–you let me know what you think. One of the collections that I did swatch is the Zoya Matte Velvet Collection because I had been looking forward to playing with the colors that I didn’t have and boy this collection does not disappoint. Don’t you hate it when companies discontinue colors that everyone wants? Well, now we don’t have to complain about not being able to get these beauties because the whole collection is being re-released! Woot! Let me show you just how gorgeous these polishes are.

 Sooooooo? Was I right? Aren’t these freaking gorgeous? I know that mattes aren’t for everyone, so you can definitely top coat them and transform them into shimmery gorgeousness. I prefer to leave them matte since that’s what’s special about them. The formula on all of these is pretty easy to work with if you just work quickly and don’t overwork the polish. For my swatches I used two coats of polish, and they all dried lightning quick. Which color is your favorite? I can’t make up my mind between Veruschka and Savita. This collection can be purchased on zoya.com for $9 each but they will only be available for a limited time so don’t drag your feet if you want them. You know how polish freaks roll and they will all disappear.

In celebration of this gorgeous collection, I am introducing a new rating system today to give you an overall idea as to how strong the polish boner is for each collection I review.  The rating system will tell you how much my brain was thinking, “Shut up and take my money!” and is based on a scale of 1-4.


It should be no surprise that my final rating is:


You really nailed it with this re-release, Zoya.

    1. I knew you would approve. I was thinking of designing nail polish boner looking things but I figured that might be a little too much. I’m weird but not that weird…I think?

  1. Your Frye rating scale has the official approval of my significant other (a huge Futurama fanboy). Congratulations, I know that means a lot. *lol*

    What is this “tech dunce” business, your photos are GORGEOUS! I have my zoya.com cart all loaded up and I think you’ve all but clicked that check out button for me… ah, what am I waiting for? I’m getting them all but Dovima, since I already have a black matte from Mentality. I think my favorite is Harlow. But I won’t know for sure if I don’t go ahead and order them now will I?

    Excellent swatches, too, btw!

    1. Thanks so much, Liz! I’m still trying to get the settings right. The thing that is still bugging me is that the lighting is washing my skin out and my hand look much more pale than they really are. I kept saying: “But I’m brown, damnit!” lol I think I will just have to play with the lighting more to make it just right. I’m happy with my new little camera. I think it takes better pictures than my old one and has a couple of features that I didn’t have with the other. Win! And it’s purple which is my favorite color so double win. 🙂

  2. I really want Veruschka and Harlow, but I blew my wad on indies this week. Hopefully they will still be in stock come payday. 🙂

  3. Umm the pictures are gorgeous!!! Seriously!! And the rating system is awesome as well. I would love to get the purple one, can’t ever have too many purple nail polishes right?
