One of Zoya’s brand new additions is their Mod Matte Nail Polish Collection. While I am not usually a huge fan of matte nail polish, Zoya has managed to completely change my mind with this collection. Deciding to bring us 3 punchy colors, they break up the monotony of the boring black or gray matte nail polish we see everywhere. Not only are the colors vibrant and intense, but the formula is smooth as butter, and the finish is actually more of a velvet matte rather than looking very flat. To see photographs and swatches,
As with all matte nail polishes, you can always add a top coat if you want the polish to be shiny. To demonstrate, I put a top coat just along the tip of my nail where a French manicure would be. In fact, there are some very cool looking manicures out there that have a matte nail with a shiny tip!
My only recommendation is to make sure you buff your nails smooth before you use matte nail polish. Just like paint, whenever the finish is matte, any bumps or imperfections will show much more easily. In the above swatches you can see I have a nick on my pointer finger from when I cut my nail cooking by accident. Matte nail polish does tend to not last as long as nail polish with a top coat, but you can prolong the wear by making sure you use a good base coat.
