Zoya PixieDusts for summer 2013!
Everyone's gong crazy over these Zoya summer PixieDusts! I just happen to have them to show you today, and I also have some comparisons for another post upcoming!
about PixieDust: Infused with even more magic and wonder! Because everyone wants more of it... The color experts at Zoya went back to the lab and created six more beautiful, long-wearing textured, matte and sparkle Zoya PixieDust Colors for Summer 2013! The incredible and best-selling formula is sure to captivate with a magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other.
This is the second set of PixieDust polishes created by Zoya, but these are definitely the brightest! I very much enjoy every single one of this collection - vivid, amazing colors. So let's dive right in, shall we?
Let's kick this post off with the polish that is almost but not quite my name! I'm sort of bummed that I will never have a Zoya polish with my name on it now that there's a Destiny.I do wish they had name any other color one of the orange ones Destiny. That kinda adds insult to injury. Orange is (as you guys know) my favorite polish color. If they were going to misspell my name, it should've been for like, a pink! That way I would be so mad hahah I had some dry time issues, as it took much longer than the rest of this collection to dry. Otherwise, perfection! I love the color :)
Moving on to Beatrix - a bright tangerine orange. The formula and dry time on this one was great. No issues whatsoever. This polish, in particular, I think really shows off the grittiness.
Now on to my absolute HANDS DOWN favorite of this collection - Liberty! So absolutely stunning :) I just couldn't quit looking at my nails when I wore it :) Word of warning, tho, it stains something terrible. I even used a base coat, and it still stained my nails and skin so badly that I had to break out my ASP Whitening Paste. I did use this in a mani where I layered it over Rocky, and that obliterated the staining...
Miranda is a sparkly dark rose that is truly gorgeous. I liked it a lot more than I assumed I would! This polish was dang near a one-coater...which in a PixieDust is pretty cool :) She shines super bright out in the sunlight.
The purpleness of Stevie will make her mother's favorite polish! It's very light, very airy, so subdued...or so you think! This one appears to have less sparkle than the others and is more flat-toned, more matte. Or maybe it's just me...
And lastly, Solange - the exclusive gold pigment! It looks like melted gold dripping on your nails. The perfect way to make yourself feel like a million bucks!
My picks are Liberty, Destiny and Beatrix. See any that you like? Any you have to have? Well, you can get them from Zoya.com for $9 each or $54 per set. Zoya.com currently only ships to the United States, but they have been saying for a while that they are working on international shipping. Hopefully that comes to fruition sometime soon! I know a lot of international gals who really want to get their hands on Zoya polishes! These polishes are also sold at Ulta and, in some markets, Whole Foods.
