When I saw the my first swatch of this polish, I knew I had to have it! The only problem was its availability... I couldn't find it anywhere! So I hunted it down like a mad women, as you do with those polishes you really want, but still, no luck.
So thank God Zoya decided to re-release the matte velvet collection! After a couple of years of pining for this polish, I can finally call it my own!
Zoya Veruschka is a gorgeous emerald green matte velvet polish. It has a gorgeous shimmer running through it that gives this polish extra depth and dimension.
This is a a matte velvet polish, so it doesn't dry completely matte, it has more of a satin finish. Matte, but you can still see a bit of shine. Personally, I like this kind of finish better than a true matte. The formula took a little getting used to, because of the extremely fast drying time. You have to work quickly and don't mess about with it too much, otherwise it can get a little patchy.
Can you blame me for falling head over heals? Just look at this stunning green! I wear this all year, but it is extra perfect for the Holiday season. I love it in its natural matte state, but when you add a layer of shiny top coat, the shimmer really comes out.
Gorgeous right? To make this mani even more Christmassy, I added some golden sparkle as an accent (Zoya Tomoko). I don't know which I like best, matte or glossy... they're both so pretty. I love the fact that this polish can be worn either way, it gives you options and I like that!
What's your favorite finish for this polish, matte or shiny?
