For St Patrick's Day: Zoya Veruschka Review + Swatches!

Hi guys!
I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend. Boy has it been hot though! Today I have for you Zoya Veruschka just in time for St Patty's day. Veruschka is part of the Zoya Matte Velvet range and it's a beautiful colour! 

Zoya Veruschka

I got this colour from during one of their sales, they actually have it on sale right now for $8 as a St Patrick's day special along with all their other greens. Turns out I own 5 of the 19 greens Zoya has, can't you tell I love their polish?

Veruschka is a dark emerald green with green shimmer that does not turn black without sunlight. You can definitely tell it's green in all lighting so that's a bonus. The application was much like that of Zoya Harlow. It took a smidge longer for the full matte effect to show up but it's still as matte as Harlow. This polish was very easy to handle, it applied smoothly and spread evenly. I definitely love these mattes!

I love the glowy quality that this polish has, it's awesome. as with Harlow, I sandwiched some top coat between two layers of Veruschka for added protection. This should extend my mani as mattes are known for being short wearing. I also used basecoat but ensured it was dry before applying colour. I didn't use a ridge-filling basecoat this time and the polish is still very smooth without bumps. Here are some shots of Veruschka before I painted over the topcoat!

This polish is so beautiful with topcoat, it brings out all the shimmer and is awesome to look at. I'm definitely going to be trying a matte/shiny mani with this in a few days.

I hope you guys enjoyed the post and happy St Patrick's Day!
