Zoya Mitzi

Dang! I had even more trouble with this one than I did with Zoya Lolly. As I stated in that post, I love mattes & I love Zoya, but I'm having so much trouble with the formula on these.

Once again, I tried thin coats & thick coats. I even started over because I REALLY love this color! I love the gorgeous frosted glass bottle. I love the idea of a matte chartreuse. But after two attempts, this was as even as i could get it. I just can't get a smooth surface.

I'm going to keep this one too and try it out again. I know it's possible to get it to look nice because I've seen pictures on other blogs. I've also seen several others who are having at least as much trouble as I am though.

The next day I added a quick stripe of the other colors from the Mod Matte set. This worked much better than the dots and again I think the colors are spectacular together. But even after adding a topcoat you can still see my lumpy application.

Thanks for reading!

This polish was sent to me for review. All opinions are my own & were not influenced by Zoya! For more information you can read my disclosure policy.


  1. Isn't this zoya Mitzi? very pretty!!

  2. It is Mitzi! How embarrassing. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know. I'll fix it right away!

  3. That looks really pretty on you!

    I have the entire Mod Matte collection and I agree that application is tricky. What I do is start off with a thin coat then I add another thin coat (but a LITTLE thicker than the first coat), then I finish off with an even thick coat. It sounds kind of complicated but I find that it works best that way.

    Good luck!

  4. Hmm, I've got Phoebe in my cart, but now I'm reconsidering.

    Thanks for posting about it!

  5. Phoebe applies much better than than Lolly & Mitzi but I still had a bit of trouble. I'll try to post it later tonight.
    Check some other blogs too though. Maybe I just suck at applying these. And they are all gorgeous colors.

  6. I had problems with them, too. Everything would be fine and then I would get a weird clump that messed everything up. It would dry on the edge of the bottle and give me drama. LOL

  7. So glad I'm not alone! I keep seeing swatches that look smooth & then I feel inadequate.

  8. I can't wait to buy Phoebe, but Mitzi really suits you - and I love the stripes.

  9. I dread the application of these. Pretty colors though.

  10. I was gonna get rid of it too because of the application but I LOVE the bottle too, lol
