Zoya Matte Velvets - Dovima & Savita Revisited


It's been a mad rush around here trying to wrap up outside projects before the weather takes it's final turn into late-fall/early winter weather.  Yeah...this afternoon it was somewhere between 65-70 degrees and tonight it'll be around 35...and not much warmer than the low for tomorrow's "high."  That's Ohio for you - you can literally go from wearing a normal t-shirt one day to needing your winter coat the next (or even later the same day...).  I'm still in denial that snow is on the forecast for the weekend.

Anyway...  On to today's post.  I'm still playing around with the Zoya Matte Velvet collection so I've got a mani post.  By the way, I took my pictures this afternoon (before finishing outside projects) so I do have some tip wear since I put it on late Saturday.

This is 2 coats of Dovima on my pinkie and thumb nails while 2 coats of Savita is on my middle and index fingers.  (2 coats of NYC Crystal Couture in NY Princess is my ring finger accent - post upcoming.)  I did have down a layer of Seche Recondition under my polishes, my poor dry nails.
As you can see by my labels, I've had these 2 for a while, but they are available again - YAY!  They both apply easily, with little to no clean up needed.  I love the Zoya brushes!  Dry time wasn't too bad, but I made sure not to rush getting ready for and into bed after doing my nails.  I think I waited a half-hour or so then was good to go.

Both have a pretty almost hidden shimmer that I spied when I was out in some fleeting sun today but I didn't have my phone with me to get a quick picture.  Savita's shimmer is on the magenta side.  Dovima has silver/blue shimmer if my mind is remembering correctly.
I put this on Saturday night and just took it off an hour ago.  While it didn't look like the above pictures before removal, I did have a couple nails that weren't chipped but most were.  That's pretty good wear time for a matte polish with no top coat.  I think it was the quick last-minute planting of Spring bulbs that did it in (maybe they'll grow? It's kinda late in the season...).

Is it hot chocolate weather where you live yet?  I've been craving one but keep putting it off.  Are you planning on getting any of the Matte Velvets?  If so, get yourself to Ulta, or order them from Zoya's site.  What's your favorite cuticle oil or cream?  My nails & cuticles are desperate!
