Zoya PixieDust Collection Skittles Mani Review/Swatches

You may have seen my first Zoya PixieDust post here using Dahlia.  I thought I would show you the rest of the shades together in one post.  And what better way, than with a skittles mani?  Here are the colors I used...
Zoya PixieDust Collection
Entire Collection Minus Dahlia
The manicure below is without a top coat.  As you can see, they all have the rough texture that is very popular right now.  After seeing the textured polishes pop up on various blogs; they kept reminding me of a certain candy, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it.  Finally, I saw someone post on FB which candy they are like...The Nerds Bumpy Jelly Beans shown here.  The Zoya PixieDusts sortof remind me of them, but the Milani Textured Polishes look exactly like them...Vampy Varnish reviews them here.  Okay...back to my mani...
Zoya PixieDust Collection
The red (Chyna) is so vibrant.  It has so much pigmentation and is a pretty awesome red.  The green (Vespa) is such a pretty light sage that I think will be fun to wear on all of the nails.  I'm not sure if I will wear the nude (Godiva), it didn't work well with my skin tone.  But I think it would be a pretty neutral for people with a darker skin tone.  Perhaps this summer when I have a tan?

The picture above shows the polishes with one coat of top coat.  I think using these with a top coat is my favorite way to wear them.  I am a big fan of the grey (London) because I really do love grey nail polish.  And the bluish/purple (Nyx) reminds me of the PixieDust version of Zoya Caitlin, which I love.  I should compare them.

All in all, I think these polishes are pretty fun to play with and I think they are worth picking up.  They have some versatility because you can wear them either bumpy or smooth:)  If I had to pick my favorites, I would choose London (grey) and Vespa (sage).  Have you tried them yet?

  4. Fun that you decided to do a skittles mani with these! Vespa and Nyx look amazing on you. I've never really noticed Nyx before, but you wear it so well ♥

  5. I think I like this muted collection more than the bright one you just posted...ok, I give up, I like them both A LOT, but for my wallet & practicality's sake (work isn't so conducive to bright shades), I am definitely gonna get Vespa, probably Nyx and maybe Godiva!! Good thing I searched to see if you had these - I was thinking of getting Godiva for you since you love neutrals, but apparently it's along the lines of Sand Tropez. Darn! :-/ I still think it looks very nice on you though!
