Zoya – Veruschka

Zoya VeruschkaI was so caught up in my excitement for the new 2015 Zoya Matte Velvet Collection that I forgot I still had one of the originals to swatch!

Veruschka is a gorgeous emerald green – perfectly festive for the holiday season. There is so much shimmer and sparkle in these polishes to help create the beautiful Matte Velvet finish, that I almost wanted to put a top coat on right away. But I didn’t and in a couple of minutes I was reminded why I adore this line – the finished look is so lovely.

I used two coats over a base coat – Wet n Wild Matte Top Coat – to give me a nice even canvas to work with. These dry quickly so you want to work fast but I absolutely recommend a little extra wait time between coats. You really want to make sure each coat is dry before applying the next.

From the original Matte Velvet Crew I have: Posh, Dovima, Savita, and Veruschka. I haven’t caved yet, but I really want Harlow. But then I’d need Loredana to complete the set. As far as the 2015 Matte Velvets go: I really liked Aspen and I have my eyes on Yves and Sue since they they are so new and different. If you’re interested in swapping let me know!

The MV polishes officially retail for $10. You can purchase Zoya polishes directly from their website. They have the best specials! I found the 2014 Matte Velvets AND 2015 Matte Velvets on sale for $8.50 on ebay + free shipping. Ulta is always a good bet, especially if you have a coupon.

  1. this looks so beautiful on your nails!! i have this one, the red the purple and one of the greys from last year and this year i got the blue.. i have yet to wear any of them this season. i really went crazy over them last winter and your swatches remind me why. they look just like velvet christmas ribbons. but you’re right, they take a minute to dry and since i can’t use my trusty seche vite to dry my nails instantly, i gotta be patient and wait it out before i do anything or go to bed. so worth it, tho… sooo beautiful!! thanks for posting this! i’m going to pull mine out and put them on my bathroom shelf right meow 😉

    1. Yay! I’m so glad you got the blue – I just ordered it too! I’m excited. I love the velvet ribbon description because you are SO right. It makes me happy 🙂
