Look what just landed on my doorstep- Zoya's new Summer Edition Pixie Dust collection! If you are unfamiliar with Pixie Dust, it is a nail polish formula that dries to a matte finish, sometimes with glitter, sometimes without. You are left with a slightly textured finish. While some may speculate that this textured nail trend is just a fad, I have high hopes for it's longevity. Here's why- not only are these different enough without screaming a particular year/time period at you (I'm lookin' at you, 2011 and shatter/crackle!!) these textured polishes wear like iron for days on end with no chips, and that's an amazing quality for a lacquer to have when you are looking for a long-wearing mani. Also, if you ever tire of wearing these in their true, textured form, a simple layer (or 2!) of topcoat will transform them into a "normal" polish.

Because I cannot get enough of these polishes, I was so excited to see Zoya's collection, bright and bursting with happiness! Let's jump right into some swatches:

First is Solange, a super cheery yellow gold (2 layers shown here):




 Next, Beatrix (a name that was in the running each time I was pregnant. I love old fashioned girls' names! Too bad I have only sons and never got to use it!). This orange is fresh and pretty. Something about having the texture in this somehow makes orange all the more wearable (2 layers):



Then there's Destiny, a juicy coral. Simply awesome. The sparkle that peeks through on this one is killer! (2 layers):






Next is the dusty violet beauty named Stevie. Spring has sprung with this color! (2 layers):



Next is the one I am wearing as a full manicure today- Miranda!  A sweet rosy mauve, the texture again bumps this up a notch, turning what would be a pretty common color into a funtastic time! (2 layers):



Lastly we have the Pixie Dust to top all Pixie Dusts- Liberty. I am not even a blue polish lover, and this one blew me away.  Bright, fresh, crisp medium blue with sparkle (2 layers):



And now for some fiery layering fun with Solange, Beatrix, & Destiny:



If I've said it once, I'll say it again- you need some Pixie Dust in your life. They are 100% fun!

  5. I only wanted a couple of the first PDs. I want almost every single one of these! Not wild about Miranda (I'm not much of a pink girl) but the rest....There's room in my drawers for a few more Zoyas!
