Hey There Polished People!
I received these next polishes I’m about to show you for review quite a while ago, but since lots of other bloggers did, too, I thought I’d wait a while and try to share them after the big rush. These are available in stores now for nine bucks apiece. Let’s have a look at them and you can decide which ones you need… I’m betting it’s going to be a long list.
Zoya Fall 2013 Pixie Dust Collection
Chita is a forest green matte sparkle Pixie Dust polish. This will be perfect for fall and I loved wearing it even now in the summer. I’ll address the formula for all of these at the bottom of this post, as I found the formulas to be identical.
Arabella is a dark berry colored matte sparkle Pixie Dust. It’s a little darker than Zoya Miranda which you may remember from my Summer 2013 Pixie Dust Matte Sparkle Polishes post.
Tomoko is a champagne colored matte sparkle metal (formerly known as/also known as matte foil twinkle) polish. This polish really screams “Winter Formal” to me! If I was still in high school I would totally wear Tomoko to a dance like that. This reminds me a lot of ChG I’m Not Lion. I love this polish!
Sunshine is a perfect medium blue matte sparkle formula Pixie Dust. It reminds me of denim a little and I just absolutely love this color. I’m not sure what it is about it really but man… I love it. It’s kinda dark, but then the sparkly bits brighten it up and it just looks awesome!! Also, unrelated to the polish, but my nails in this picture are my personal perfect nail length. I wish they would just be this length and never change.
Dhara is a coppery orange matte sparkle metal Pixie Dust polish. I like this color just fine, but I have decided that I really prefer the matte sparkle finish to the matte sparkle metal/foil twinkle. I feel so fraudulent saying this as a major orange lover, but this might be my least favorite polish from this collection. That being said, I still think it’s pretty and don’t have anything negative to say about it, it’s just a personal preference.
Ahhhh Carter. Carter is such a beautiful matte sparkle polish. The base is kind of a dark purple and the sparkly bits are lighter purple.. they come together to just look STUNNING!!! Purple lovers are going to NEED this polish for sure. This might be my favorite out of this collection, although I really also like Sunshine and Chita…. and Tomoko.
All of these polishes had the same formula as far as I could tell. The good news is that the formula is great!! I found the application to be awesome! All of these were opaque in 2-3 coats, most were good in 2, and they went on easily. I love the brush for these polishes, too. I hardly need to clean up at all. It’s awesome. Something else that impressed me was that even the dark colors like Carter didn’t stain even when I didn’t wear base coat, just like Zoya promises. They also wore really well and seemed durable even without wrapping my tips. These are the perfect no-fuss, yet quite attention-getting polishes.
Do you love these, or do you LOVE these? Do you have any yet? I really enjoyed this collection and I expected to be over the textured polish trend by now. NOPE! Still loving it, and specifically loving these Zoyas! Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
