Fun with Zoya Phoebe and Mitzi (pic heavy)

Sooo

  Out of 15 colors I decided I only NEEDED Two lol... And these two ladies do not disappoint. It's like they were made for each other.

  First up is a glossy Phoebe with Mitzi tips left matte. I really love this look. The matte tips make it look interesting, but don't expect them to last very very long :). These two colors play so well together.

 Here is some fun with dotting all left matte. I feel this really captures the Mod inspiration behind the polishes.

So this is the amazing Phoebe. A beautiful Sky Blue matte with a beautiful icy blue micro shimmer. It give the polish such a silky apperance. My take on the formula is that it is a fine matte formula. Fluid, smooth, even and it gives you enough time to work with it beofre it begins to dry. This is two coats of color.

 And this is the lively Mitzi. Bright highlighter Yellow-ish Green. This is sooo awesome! I really liked this from swatches I had seen but once I got it on I loooved it! Once again I found the formula to be easy to work with, a bit thin but fluid. I know a lot of girls have had issue with it but my trick is to keep the hand light and let the brush glide and do all the work. This color has no shimmer in it whatsoever but it does not have a chalky look to it.  This is two coats.

And here is some glossy Skittles. These colors make me happy!
 I love that Zoya has given us some Mattes in some fun and funky shades for the summer. Mattes are a love it or leave it type thing but I definitely love them! The colors scream Summer and the finish makes them unique for the season.

What are your feelings on mattes?
