MATTEVELVET WINTER

Savita (ZP504) – plum gray matte shimmer

Harlow (ZP505) – rose matte shimmer

Veruschuka (ZP506) – evergreen matte shimmer

MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry nail surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear. For best results make sure to always prepare nail with Zoya Remove + (3-in-1 nail polish remover, nail plate cleaner and new color prep.) prior to applying color.

Collection will be available September 15, 2009.

Pre-order now Sug. Retail $6.00 per 0.5 oz bottle. U.S. ( Price will increase to $7.00!!! )

Nails Of The Day: Models Own Purple Blue

I have finally got my hands on one of the nail polishes from the Models Own Beetlejuice collection which is beyond gorgeous!

I really wanted to get four of them but decided to start with one colour and treat myself to others later. Why four and not all five? Emerald Green reminds me of my all time favourite Illamasqua’s Viridian and I don’t need two very similar nail polishes.

So I’ve picked Purple Blue which is such a gorgeous shade and I can’t believe that it was only £5! Models Own describe the shade as a ‘vibrant punch of fuchsia indigo’ and I would agree.  It is like a purple based polish with duochrome  indigo shimmer, absolutely

Nails Of The Day: Maybelline Colorama in Power Red

I have quite a few  Maybelline Colorama nail polishes, so I was curious to try the re-launched range. Compared to the old design (and my horrible photos) this new look  is so much better, it is chic and looks like it could be a part of a luxury line.

The brush is also easier to use now, it’s not  a wide-and-thin  one but I can’t complain.

Maybelline Colorama in Power Red 23 nail swatchI have picked a red nail polish because I wear red a lot!  You can see how two coats look like above. Not bad, right?

But since I have a lot of red nail polishes already (my favourite has to be Revlon Red, the best red, in my opinion), I gave this one to my aunt along with red lipstick. My uncle better appreciate, ha!

Nails Of The Day: Sally Hansen Nail Polish in Blue It

It’s  cold today and snow is everywhere (which makes me happy) so I thought that it’s a perfect time for a dark blue nail polish.

The only dark (well, relatively) blue which I have is Sally Hansen Blue It so I’ve decided to wear it today. I have to say that it is an amazing colour, I only wish it stayed on my nails for a longer time.

I am wearing one layer of nail polish and a Seche Vite top coat. I should have used 2 layers but it looks ok with 1 layer in real life, I guess it looks kind of streaky because of the flash. By the way you can actually see the snow on the background.

And what  nail polish are you wearing this week?
