Happy and Merry wishes to everyone who celebrated today Christmas day! I didn't have much time for nails this week so I created this fast, Christmas themed nail art with the stunning Zoya Matte Velvet collection! I can't even believe it took me this long to try these, they are amazing!!
The base for this look is an easy gradient with Zoya Loredana on the cuticle side and Zoya Dovima on the free edge side. These blend so easily into each other the gradient was a subtle one but still visible!
Loredana by Zoya can be best described as a medium gunmetal grey, packed with silvery shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish.This shade gives the nails the appearance of brushed steel.
Dovima by Zoya can be best described as a smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish. This shine-free black is the must have shade for fall!
My ornaments were easy to make, I painted 3 coats (letting each coat dry down before adding the next) in sections on wax paper. Once dry (about an hour later) I gently peeled off the layer of polish and used two different size hole punchers to pop out perfect circles :D Here's a look with top coat.
I hand painted the tree and its outline is A England Fotheringhay Castle, the ornament strings are A England Encore Margot.
Index: Savita by Zoya can be best described as a bold, vibrant medium purple with strong red and gold shimmer with a velvet MATTEVELVET finish. A new take on the matte trend for fall/winter with a pop of bold color.
Middle: Posh by Zoya can be best described as a medium cool-toned wine red with metallic red shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish. Impossibly sexy and glamorous, this matte red truly lives up to its name.
Ring: Veruschka can be best described as a deep evergreen garnished with strong metallic shimmer in a velvety MATTEVELVET finish. One of this season's hottest colors in a trendy, matte finish!
Pinky: Harlow by Zoya can be best described as a rich, saturated rose plum packed with sparkling metallic shimmer in a velvety MATTEVELVET finish. A perfect choice for fall or winter that combines rich color with a lush matte finish.
I love this entire collection, and as stunning as they are glossy, I prefer them matte! Looking forward to seeing if 2015 brings more matte velvet shades from Zoya!
