I was really excited when I first heard of Zoya’s Pixie Dust collection. I was all about the matte finish trend of 2009 (I hope that’s right. Was it 2009? I think so.) and so I’m all about this whole sandpaper-y finish of 2013 that each polish in this collection has. It’s unique, innovative and I love the fact that even though there’s no glossy finish, these polishes still appear sparkly as hell on the nail. Now, as a disclaimer, I feel like pictures really don’t do these polishes justice. They sparkle in the sun like no other. And even if after looking at these swatches you don’t feel like you need to go out and buy any of them, you do. Trust me, you do. This collection is fantastic. On to the pictures.
Godiva. I would expect this to be a deep chocolaty brown with a name like Godiva but nope. It’s a light grey-cementy-tan with silver glitter. Usually I’m not really drawn to these shades of polish but the finish on it makes it look like a spiced of nude. It’s pretty in a subtle way. This is two coats.
London. I LOVE the name of this polish. Even if the polish itself was ugly, I’d probably still love it for the name. Fortunately, the polish is pretty. And despite the fact that it only rained twice when I was in London, the city is known for it’s grey skies and gloom so the name fits this polish perfectly. It’s a medium charcoal grey with silver glitter that in the sun shines rainbow. Really very, very pretty. Two coats on this as well.
Vespa. A light avocado green with with silver finish. The polish is a tad on the sheer side. I only did two coats and clearly I probably would have been better off with three. Avocado green polishes aren’t really my thing but… it’s still really pretty.
NYX. A light Blurple with silver glitter. It’s like a periwinkle blurple. Reminds me of flowers and springtime. Another one that’s a bit on the sheer side. This is two coats and I should have done three but at least these aren’t streaky in the least bit so two coats can still be pulled off without looking bad. Three just would have looked better I bet.
Dahlia. My favorite of the collection. A solid black with silver glitter that shimmers rainbow colors in the sun. If you buy only one polish from this collection; this is it. It seriously is so, so pretty. And at two coats, this polish is super opaque.
Chyna. A deep red with bright red glitter. This one is just stunning. It reminds me a lot of China Glaze Ruby Pumps but with the sand finish, it’s just so, so pretty. I absolutely love it. I’m wearing it right now and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna be wearing this polish for days til it’s chipped. I’m in love. This is two coats as well.
Overall, I absolutely love this collection. Zoya always has the most unique collections in my opinion and again, I’m not disappointed. This Pixie Dust Collection is available now in stores and online at Zoya.com and retails for $9 a bottle.
