Zoya PixieDust Summer 2013 Review/Swatches

I was so excited when the Summer PixieDusts arrived.  I was surprisingly impressed by the original collection - I say "surprisingly" because I wasn't sure how I would feel about the texture.  
Here are three of the new citrus shades - I thought they looked fun together:)  
 *Provided for Review
The first is Destiny.  It is described as a red-coral.  It's so pretty!

 This is Beatrix and it is a bright and juicy orange.

 And this is Solange, a cheerful yellow.

 The application was so easy and opaque in two coats.  It's so hard to capture the beauty of these with a camera.  They really do sparkle like glitter!

I have found that the PixieDusts come in so handy when I am rushing to get out the door and I want to quickly paint my nails.  Not only is the application quick because it's forgiving if you aren't painting them perfectly, but they dry very quickly and you don't have to add a top coat.  I also like that if I do happen to smudge my nail, it isn't as noticeable. They also last a long time without any chipping.

I had to try them with a top coat; of course, and it makes them appear multi-dimensional.  They are sparkly all by themselves, but it adds an extra ooomph when you add the top coat.

  1. Wow! So purty! I suppose most companies will be jumping on the textured polish trend after OPI's Liquid Sands. Destiny looks SO much like one of the new ones from OPI's Bond Girls collection...it also happens to be my most favorite one that the second I saw it, I was like, I MUST HAVE THAT! Haha If you get that one (I believe it's called Jinx?), I'd say some comparison photos are needed! I'm glad one of us is enjoying these bright, sunny, tropical vacation-type shades on this dismal "spring" day!

    1. I'll check it out. I haven't tried any of the Liquid Sands yet. I never thought I would like this textured trend, but I really do!

    2. I didn't think I would either! But like you pointed out, the wear time, dry time, and no base/top coat needed are some REALLY attractive features. :-)
      My roommate got a pretty pink Liquid Sands from the Mariah Carey collection - it even has stars in it - SUPER cool!!
