Review

My first experience with Zoya’s PixieDust formula was with the Summer 2013 PixieDust, and while I will admit at first I wasn’t sure I could rock this textured trend, my mind was quickly changed with that collection, and now I am even more excited about the Fall Edition as well.  The shades in the Fall PixieDust Edition are glorious – a glistening garnet, earthy green, and navy blue are just some of my favorites – please don’t tell me I have to pick just one!  This collection consists of four polishes that are Zoya’s Textured Matte Sparkle formula (Chita, Sunshine, Carter, Arabella) and two polishes that are the Textured Matte Sparkle Metal formula (Dhara, Tomoko).  You can definitely see a difference on the nails with the sparkle metal formula, giving the nails some extra glistening metallic dimension.

I found the polishes to evenly apply and easy to work with.  I was satisfied with two coats (I like to do one thin and one thick coat) with all of these polishes, except for Tomoko, which I felt needed that third coat because it is more lightly pigmented than the others.  The PixieDust formulation is very durable.  I wore Tomoko for a solid four days before removing it to do some more swatching and she had only started to wear on the tips of two of my nails, so touching up those two nails would have given her another several days of wear I’m sure.

What I love best about the Zoya PixieDust formulation is the major amount of sparkle I get on the nail.  It is almost as if I have my nails wrapped in solid glitter!  The matte finish does look amazing with this polish, but if you are not a total fan of it simply apply a couple coats of top coat and you will still get that glittery effect that is also stunning. (To see a comparison of Zoya PixieDust with a topcoat and with a basecoat, please see my post here.)  Oh and did I mention that although you get a lot of glitter, shimmer and texture with these polishes they are not a nightmare to remove?  Simply soaking the nail with a cotton ball for a few seconds (no foil required) does the trick!  Love it!

Let me know if you decide on picking up any of these new Fall Edition PixieDust polishes and what your favorites are!

      It is definitely a gorgeous collection! Thank you. :) Those are great choices! I still have Dhara on and can’t stop looking at her on my nails! ;)

    These colors are so gorgeous but man I wish they weren’t textured. For whatever reason I haven’t been able to jump on that bandwagon. The grittiness just drives me crazy the whole time I’m wearing them!

      I understand the feeling! At first I didn’t care for texture (especially since chunky glitter drove me batty) but for some reason the texture of these with 2-3 coats smooths itself out enough for my liking. What other textured ones have you tried? I should probably look into more to see how they compare to Zoya’s! :)

      Thank you Lizzy! I am in love with this collection for sure! At this moment Dhara is my favorite – I can’t seem to take her off yet! ;)
