Zoya Mod Mattes Swatches

Zoya recently released three new collections for summertime. I showed you the Sunshine collection here.
Today I want to show you the Mod Matte collection.

Phoebe, Mitzi, and Lolly.

This is 3 coats of Phoebe.

Phoebe is a bright blue matte polish with a hint of shimmer. It doesn't have enough shimmer to be considered a suede polish, it's kind of between matte and suede. The finish is definitely unique.

This is definitely summer worthy.

Here you can see how mild the shimmer is.

This is 3 coats of Mitzi.

Mitzi is a lime green matte polish.

This is also a great summer polish. 

This polish is just matte, no shimmer.

This is 3 coats of Lolly.

Lolly is a hot pink matte polish.

I love this one especially. Hot pinks are great for summer.

This one looks very chalky to me.

The formula on these were a bit disappointing. Usually, Zoya really delivers in colors and formulas but they were kind of average. I will say,  if you are careful with these ( I wasn't) and apply even coats ( I didn't)- your matte polish will dry much better.


  1. I like Phoebe and Lolly a lot! I'd definitely wear those in summer :)

  2. Oh, wow, they're pretty! So summery :)

  3. Phoebe is my fav! nice swatches.

  4. I really want those colors!! They are so pretty!! :)

  5. I got Phoebe, but I had a hard time with application. I think my OPI suedes are way easier to use.

  6. I've got to say that Phoebe looks the best and the finish looks fairly alright. Though I have seen far better looking matte polishes.

  7. I got Phoebe...but I wasn't careful when I removed it so I kind of had Smurf fingers for a while.

  8. Phoebe looks amazing - definitely the standout for me.

  9. summer colors!!! love the matte effect on such bright colors especially Phoebe! <3

  10. Naomi- I think the suedes have a different finish that's what makes them easier. Mattes are usually problematic.

    Thanks everyone!

  11. These look awesome on you, but 3 coats makes me sad :'( I hope Zoya goes back to making their matte-velvet finish, dang it!

  12. I want these colors REALLY badly, but I'm afraid that matte nail polishes would look really streaky! :o
