The new PixieDust polishes in Zoya’s Magical Pixie collection sparkle like Ryan Gosling’s pearly whites on the red carpet, *zing!*
Hexagonal flecks of iridescent goodness combine with finer flecks of shimmer to create a dazzling effect more powerful than the gravitational pull of J. Lo’s butt.
You have no choice but to stare…
Ain’t no party like a glitter party, so of course I had to go there. 🙂 And this glitter does not mess around.
I think Zoya’s regular PixieDust formula is pretty flashy on its own, but the addition of extra hex pieces here takes it to the next level. Totally worthy of a bacchanalian bachelorette par-taaaaay in Vegas, or perhaps a cat fight on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Rosy Lux, silver Cosmo and blue Vega are all full coverage, and Zoya recommends 2-3 coats on clean nails (no base coat needed), although, I bet if you could get away with a single layer if you were in a hurry.
For each of these swatches below, I used two… Force of habit, ya know?
I love the way cool-toned blue Vega, my favorite of the bunch, shimmers… It takes me back to when El Hub and I had just started dating.
We’d visit his family in Hawaii over the holidays, and I’d wake up early in the mornings to sneak in a pre-dawn surf session. Vega glimmers just like those teal blue waters sparkled as the sun came up.
Can you see the purple pieces of glitter in cool-toned pink Lux (my second favorite one)? I think they give it a dainty, feminine touch.
Cosmo, the third shade here, is like a disco ball in a bottle. If you’re in the mood to party, this one’s your polish.
With Zoya’s textured PixieDust polishes, it’s all about the grit, but ya know — if that’s not your thing, you could apply a shiny top coat for a smoother feel.
Oh, and you know how glitter polishes are infamous for latching on to nails? Well, these are no exception. They’re kind of a pain to remove, so plan accordingly (give yourself some extra time).
The three polishes in the new Magical Pixie collection are dazzling on Zoya counters now and at zoya.com for $10 each (or $30 for the three-piece set of full-size bottles).
