Hi Dolls:) Now this is one post that I have been super excited to show you (super pic heavy):) Zoya has come out with a fabulous new line of Matte Textured Polishes:) Now I am not a super huge fan of texture on my nails (I hate glitter bumps) and even though I LOVE the look of these polishes, the feel of the texture drives me a little crazy, but pain is beauty right:)
So up first is London, a beautiful "fog" grey. I totally can see why this polish is named London. It really does make you imagine a foggy London night. I am wearing 2 coats of London, no topcoat:) The texture of this polish is like a medium nail file but the shimmer is gorgeous!!!
I then added a coat of Gelous and SV to smooth out the texture, and wow just look at that shimmer:)
Next up is Nyx, this is a gorgeous periwinkle blue. This beauty is slightly thinner than London and required 3 coats. Dry time on this was right around 20 minutes, and then I still smudged it:( but I didn't let every coat dry completely either... This is one of my favorite colors in the collection:) Once I added the top coat, the color brightened up a lot!!!!
Vespa is next, and this gorgeous mint green totally looks like it could be on a Vespa cruising the Italian coast. This one was thin like Nyx and took 3 coats as well. I tried a different method and let each coat dry, total time 35 min, 10-12 min dry time each coat. This one I liked way more without the topcoat, it just did something for me:)
Godiva is a sparkly nude, probably my least favorite in the set :( It is a gorgeous color, but it is sooo hard to find a nude that looks good on me... This beauty took 3 coats as well and like Vespa I like this better without the topcoat.
Dahlia, is a beautiful shimmery black. This polish reminds me of a fresh paved road, gritty and shimmery in the sun:) Only took 2 coats for complete coverage:) Now once you add some top coat, this polish is practically begging to be turned into a galaxy mani:)
And Finally Chyna, the best and worst of the bunch. This deep red kinda creeped me out a little, it reminded me of dried blood:( I think it is the combo of the color and texture that just doesn't jive:( Two coat give complete coverage and add a top coat to it and WOW!!!! This polish turns into Christmas Red PERFECTION!!!! I LOVE it with the top coat:)
So Lovelies, what do you think of the Pixie Dust Collection??? I am in a Love/Hate relationship with them. I Love how they look, Hate how they feel:( and Texture polishes are really taking the polish world by storm. I wonder if the fabulous look of these is going to help my aversion to the texture, only time will tell I Guess:) You can pick up these beauties from www.zoya.com they retail for $9:) and keep your eyes out I hear they have some bright summer colors coming out super soon:)
