Zoya PixieDust Godiva and Dahlia

Good morning lovelies!! 

  I'm sorry about the gaps between postings. I seem to be on a upswing and I've been really taking advantage of this surge of "good-feeling". I actually went out this weekend and had a good time with the husband. Yesterday I was catching up on a ton of emails, doing some swatches, working on a little project I'm pretty excited about and did not get a chance to work on a Muffin Monday. 
  But anywho... last Friday I finally got a chance to wear some of my Zoya PixieDust polishes. These are Zoya's take on the textured polish trend. I've decided to wear them in pairs since they compliment each other so well. For my first go I went with Godiva(nude) and Dahlia. 
 These both have amazing formulas and they apply easily and evenly. They are both somewhat sheer, but they build up very easily. For both of these shades I used Three average coats. With these polishes it is best to wait a few minutes between coats to avoid "the lumps". Both Godiva and Dahlia have a beautiful Silver sparkle that seems to float on the surface of the texture. These are beautifully executed by Zoya and the sparkle makes them so chic. These were fully dry (on me) within 45 minutes of application.
 The texture on these is not distracting to me, and I am a picker. More good news, there was absolutely zero snagging of clothing. The wear on these was amazing, I polished my nails with them on Friday and just took them off yesterday! I had minimal chips on the corners of my nails. To remove I placed small bits of cotton soaked in acetone on each fingernail for a few minutes, then slid them off while applying some pressure. This got about 90% of the polish off and the rest came off very easily.

  I really, REALLY like these and I am so excited for the Summer Pixies!! I can't wait to try the rest of the shades in this collection. I kinda wanna try some nail art with them. Not sure how, or what yet but I'm sure they will look awesome in some nail art. There is something delicate, yet edgy about these and that makes me love them even more! 

 Have you tried the PixieDust polishes yet? What are your thoughts?

  3. OMG, I'm so glad to see your review of these! I finally got mine and I have to admit it's the first time I've tried texture polish. I was SURE I wouldn't like it, but knew I had to try it... AND wow! I'm shocked at how gorgeous these are! Though I haven't tried any others like it, I'm sure Zoya nailed it with this formula and the subtle sparkle. Can't wait for the summer colors! The only one from this collection that I didn't get was Godiva?! Looking at your swatch though, I might have to try it. Thanks for your post!

  4. OMG, I'm so glad to see you tried these... I just got mine in the mail and even though I've never tried texture polish, I was sure I'd hate these. but WOW! These are beautiful... I think Zoya nailed it with the formula and subtle sparkle. I didn't get Godiva, but after seeing your post I might have to try it. Thanks!

  5. Christina - I love your blog!! Your nails are so pretty and you do them so perfectly. Your pictures are so true to color and elegant.

    Everything you swatch makes me want to buy it. You do such an amazing job!

    Please don't worry about the gaps between posting. Some bloggers only post once a week or less and that is fine. Just go with the flow and give yourself all the TLC you need and deserve. We'll be here whenever you are ready to show us something new. (smile)

    I love the PIXIE DUST from Zoya!! I bought Dahlia and fell more deeply in love than I ever thought I would. I'm going to get NYX and LONDON also. I can't wait until April so I can order Miranda and Stevie.

    It will be so cool to have two polishes that are Stevie and Nyx!!
    I love her too! (Stevie Nicks)

    Anyway I always look at your blog and archives etc. You are AWESOME girl! Thanks for all you do and have a GREAT WEEK!

  6. I'm getting through swatching mine and I was really surprised at how easily it came off! I'm also definitely a picker so it was a very happy day when it dried uniform, if not smooth. Great swatches, can't wait to see which two you put together next!

  8. I have them all & I love them. Surprising to me, my least favorite is Chyna, as Red is my fave color. I fell in love with Dahlia at first sight and I knew I HAD TO HAVE THEM. These are the first textured polishes I've ever tried and I have no regrets. I cannot wait until the summer collection comes out!
