Zoya PixieDust Collection- Swatch + Review

Yay! I've been waiting for these beauties for what seems like forever!!  It's Zoya's PixieDust Collection!! 

Featuring the latest "must-have" nail polish finish- textured, matte, and sparkling.
This newly developed formula is sure to captivate with magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other.  The color experts at Zoya have created six, long-wearing stunners for the introduction of this look."


NYX:


Zoya describes NYX as : "A perfect periwinkle with a sugared sparkle."  I really like this color.  It's my favorite of the four lighter colors of this collection.  Pictured above is three coats of NYX with no top coat.  This is the only one that required 3 coats.  All the others only needed 2.

Chyna:



Zoya describes Chyna as: "a red dazzle with a sugared sparkle."  I LOVE this color!!  Chyna is soooo gorgeous!!!  It has so much depth!  It's stunning and it's my favorite of the PixieDust Collection.  Pictured above is two coats with no top coat.

Godiva:


Zoya describes Godiva as: "a soft nude with a sugared sparkle."  Godiva is the exact same color as my skin, so it doesn't look that great on me.  In my opinion, Godiva would look much better against darker skin.  The formula was great.  I used two coats with not top coat.

Dahlia:



Zoya describes Dahlia as: "A black beauty with a sugared sparkle."  Dahlia is my second favorite of the collection.  I seem to like darker colors much more when it comes to textured polishes.  The "texture" is much more apparent.  Dahlia would be perfect if there was just a little holo sparkle floating around.  :)  I used two coats of Dahlia with no top coat.

London:


Zoya describes London as: "a fog gray with a sugared sparkle."  I like gray polishes, but I usually like them a little darker that London. (This one kinda reminds me of cement).  The lighter colors in the PixieDust Collection don't shine a brightly as the two darker ones.  Pictured above is two coats of London without top coat.

Vespa:


Zoya describes Vespa as: "a mint kiss with a sugared sparkle."  Vespa's pretty.. again, I just wish it was darker.  This IS a spring collection, so it only makes sense to have these lighter colors.  Formula-wise it's great.  I used two coats once again.

**Overall, I really like The PixieDust Collection.  Textured, matted polished seems to be all the rage right now... but, will it last???  Hmmm?  My personal favorites are Chyna and Dahlia.  I am really impressed with the formula of all of the above polishes.  Zoya recommends not using base or top coat and allowing each coat to completely dry before adding another.  I'm dying to try top coat on Dahlia and Chyna, though.  I just want to see them super-sparkly!!  You're gonna need a little patience when it comes to removing these textured polishes.  I almost had to use the foil method.  Just saturate your cotton ball with remover and allow it to sit on your nail a few minutes before removal.

Ultra long-wearing, nail lacquers by Zoya are BIG5FREE - all formulas are completely free of harmful industrial chemicals such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) that are known to cause cancer and birth defects.

  3. I've just noticed these textured polishes being the trend right now but I'm not quite sure if I like them. I do like the look of Chyna and Godiva though.

  4. I keep debating between Nyx and Vespa...I should just get both! But then there's Godiva too. beautiful photos though!

  5. Vespa is my favorite of these, but green is my favorite color, so I may be biased. I thought that Godiva looked great on you because it is close to your skin tone; it looks subtle and elegant. Your photos are fab.
    I'm not sure whether or not the textured polishes fad will last, but I like a lot (definitely not all) of them. I have not liked most of the other recent fads (crackle, caviar beads, flocking, fimo), but when I do like a style, I'm only minorly concerned about whether or not it is still fashionable. With the textured polishes, I like that most of them look good with topcoat, in case you get sick of them or they become very outdated.

  6. As lovely as all of these polishes are, (and the ARE awesome!), it's true that these would all benefit from a little darkness, to make them richer in color. Vespa and Godiva in particular. Regardless, I will have to pick these up!! The texture is so funky...and Zoya makes lovely formulas. Thanks!
