Manicure Monday: Zoya Dovima

Today's manicure is from Zoya. I recently acquired the polish during one of Zoya's amazing winter promos. They seriously love their costumers!

Dovima is a beautiful black matte polish. It was actually one of the few that I didn't own yet and decided it need to be a part of my collection. I'm glad I grabbed it, because it is a beautiful black with shimmer in it. Which gives it a deep charcoal look in certain lights. And while it's certainly beautiful in its matte form, adding a top coat makes the shimmer pop.

I love matte polishes, but they are finicky. They chip quickly, like in a day or two quickly. On top of that, oils from your skin can give the matte finish a more satin look. Sadly it's just the nature of the beast. I have heard that if you layer the polish that it can prolong the life the color (think: base coat, color, top coat, color), though I haven't tried that yet.

You can buy Dovima through the Zoya website.
