Zoya Matte Velvet Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Today I have swatches of the Zoya Matte Velvet Collection - these best-selling polishes have been around for a few years, and they get re-released every so often. I've always thought these colors were gorgeous, and I finally got my hands on them! Let me tell you, they did not disappoint.


This collection consists of six matte polishes with a subtle shimmer that are perfect for winter! They had flawless formulas, and I loved the velvety matte finish on all of these, but the shimmer in them was gorgeous, so I had to try them with top coat too. Let's look at them individually:


Veruschka is a deep forest green shimmer with a matte finish. This was the first matte velvet I tried, and I instantly fell in love! This color is so rich and beautiful, and the formula was perfection. Shown above is two coats, no top coat.


Of course I had to see what this color looked like with top coat! It looks so beautiful both ways.


Posh is a stunning berry red shimmer with a matte finish. Another beautiful color! I think this one is perfect for the upcoming months, especially Christmas time! Again, the formula was incredible (I'm sure I will be repeating myself a lot in this post, but these polishes are just impressive!). Shown above is two coats without top coat.


Here is Posh with top coat. The glitters in this polish really come to life with a shiny finish!


Harlow is a vibrant orchid matte with a ton of silver sparkle. I thought it was interesting to see that this color had so much more shimmer than the others, but I think the effect is really nice! Just like the others, the formula was perfection. Shown above is two coats without top coat.


And here it is with top coat! I didn't think this polish actually looked much different with top coat, unlike some of the others, but the sparkle definitely becomes deeper and more vibrant!


Savita is a breathtaking cool toned rich purple matte with red and gold shimmer. This color is just amazing! I love the addition of the different colored shimmer in this polish, it really makes it so mysterious and rich. Shown above is two coats without top coat.


And here it is with top coat! Wow! Doesn't this color look like it belongs to royalty? It's perfect!


Next, we have Dovima, a beautiful smoky black with a matte finish. With the silver shimmer in this, it reminds me of a dark night sky! I love this one, and I can see myself wearing it for a classy but elegant look. Shown above is two coats without top coat.


Here it is with top coat, which makes it look even more like the night sky! Can anyone say "galaxy nails"?!


And finally, we have Loredana, a gorgeous gunmetal gray with a matte finish. This polish had a similar finish as Harlow - it featured much more sparkle than the other polishes. I think it works perfectly with this shade of gray! Shown above is two easy coats without top coat.


Here it is with top coat. With the vibrant shimmer, I didn't think it looked too different with top coat, but I love it both ways!

Overall, I think it's safe to say I'm in love with this collection. No wonder Zoya keeps bringing them back! Matte polishes aren't generally that easy to work with, but these were smooth and flawless. And the colors were just wonderful. I just started typing out my favorites, but then I realized I was listing the entire collection... Basically, you need them all!

The Matte Velvet polishes are available from Zoya's website for $9 USD per bottle, or $54 for the entire collection. You can follow Zoya on Facebook and Twitter for updates and photos!

Do you own any Zoya Matte Velvets? Which one is your favorite?

  21. I love your swatches Kelli. You convinced me, I NEED them. Unfortunately I don't own any Zoya Matte Velvets, because when I first started blogging, I couldn't find them anymore. Now I have the chance to get at least one and I'll definitely go for Savita! <3

  22. Flawless.. as usual. I don't have Harlow and your swatch convinced me to get it. I wish Zoya would quit playin around and just release them for good already. Along with new colors.
