Severine was a limited edition mini that was available with purchase on the US site in winter 2018, its a pale golden yellow. The UK website never offers minis or extras as far as I am aware.  I wasnt sure if I should post pics of this one but its in my collection and I said I'd swatch everything, I have a couple more mini limited editions and a mini set of the original colourful matte velvets to share.

This is the cutest mini and Zoya minis are the best value as they're exactly half the size of their normal bottles at 7.5ml. The brush in the mini bottle is the same size as the normal bottle just on a shorter stem.  OPI minis are 3.75ml in comparison which is barely enough for two manicures.

This has a great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in two coats. This is a bit brush strokey too, its the nature of a metallic. The first swatch pic under my LED light and the second is kinda in natural light, I think it shows the colour slightly better.



  1. I know what you mean about swatching polishes that aren't available anymore ... when I'm feeling conflicted about it I remind myself that destash sales are a thing and move on and swatch.

    I was fortunate to pick up Severine when it was out ... it's a good gold for my skintone. I haven't been paying attention to Zoya lately ... wonder what I've missed. :D

    1. Yeah I am a member of a UK destash group on FB and I see a lot of stuff getting sold. Its a good point on the destashes.
