Zoya is releasing three new limited edition matte colors for summer 2011 called ModMattes.
As with normal matte nail polishes, they are meant to be worn over your nail with no base coat or top coat to keep the matte finish as true as possible.
- Phoebe – sky blue matte shimmer
- Mitzi – limey green matte
- Lolly – barbie pink matte
Mitzi is a bright lime green matte. Reminds me a bit of a highlighter pen! I love the color, but had some serious issue with streaking. I think it’s probably because it’s got a ton of yellow in it and almost all yellows are prone to streakiness.
It did even out after three coats. I did a wear test of one finger this past weekend and must say it failed pretty miserably. I didn’t use a base coat or top coat and within 12 hours I had a lot of chips. I’m not all that surprised because if a regular polish lasts on me for a day or two with no chips it’s rare and mattes are even “chippier”.
Lolly is a medium barbie pink matte. This is a bright and cheery color. It’s bright but not a neon, and very appropriate for summer.
The formula on this was much better than Mitzi. It covered almost perfectly in just one coat, but I used two here.
Phoebe is a sky blue matte with very subtle shimmer. I like this one the best because of the shimmer, I think it makes it more interesting.
The formula with this was also really good and almost opaque in one coat, though I used two.
I am on the fence because personally I am not in a matte mood right now, I want shimmery colors for summer! But I do like that they are bright and not colors you normally see in mattes. I definitely like Phoebe the most of the three.
Pricing: $8.00 each. But wait, there’s more!
