Zoya Loredana-- Matte Velvet Collection

*press sample

  Hi everyone!!  I'm being true to my word and wearing each of the relaunched Zoya Matte Velvets as full manicures (because some polishes are just way too awesome to be merely "swatched").  Posh captured my polish loving heart instantly {HERE}, and then Loredana went and did the same...

  Loredana reinforced my complete love of grey polishes and this medium toned shade is simply perfect in matte finish.  Loredana is packed with multicolored shimmer, most visible when the polish is still wet.  The matteness mutes the colors significantly and dries to a soft suede-ish silvery grey.  Application is nearly flawless- I seldom clean up and even then, I seldom have lines this neat.  I used two coats of Loredana over OPI Ridge Filler base.  NO TOP COAT.  It should be noted that I've switched my manicures every day this week and I'm currently wearing my fourth Matte Velvet.  Each has lasted through a full day's work, some days being harder on my hands than others, with no chipping and minimal, if any, tipwear.  These Matte Velvets are wearing better than most of my cremes.

 Loredana is available on zoya.com for $9.

 Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!! ♥

  3. Lovely dahling! I am on the matte shimmer bandwagon! Groc Out (grocery outlet) has some of the Sally Hansen Satin Glams, very pretty!

    1. Nice! There's a dark grey Satin Glam, too, I think... I've successfully talked myself out of those despite stopping and looking whenever I pass a display... The orchid one is gorgeous.

    1. Ahh, I wish I knew! I missed out on the OPI Mattes entirely. Maybe they'll take a cue from Zoya and rerelease, too :)

  12. This looks beautiful on you. <3 It reminds me of a not-as-dark SH Satin Glam Silk Onyx. I'm not a huge matte fan, but that shimmer makes it sooooo nice. :)

    1. Thank you! <3 I thought I remembered a similar Satin Glam. I'm not terribly huge on mattes, either, but these are special. The only other matte I'd love to own is OPI You Don't Know Jacques. It's got the same suede like finish.
