Zoya Magical Pixie Dust, Summer Collection, Review

~Press Sample~

Morning! I have had little motivation for doing nails lately, this nice weather has got me outside whenever possible :D I have three gorgeous polishes to show you today, its the Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Summer Collection! Their first collection for this type of texture was a huge hit for me, and I was really excited to try out these new colors. I have one mani with all three colors and macros after of each polish, my general review is at the end.

Zoya: Alro, three coats no top coat.
This one is by far my favorite of the three

zoya ginni magical pixie dust collection 2014 macro

Zoya: Ginni, three coats no top coat
I wish this pink was brighter for being in a summer collection

Zoya bar magical pixie dust collection 2014 macro

Zoya: Bar, three coats no top coat
This is my second favorite, beautiful champagne nude.

All together these polishes have a gorgeous finish, but I didn't like the formula in this bunch. The first set of Magical Pixie Dust only required two coats, and this set I had to apply three. I also felt like I didn't get an even application of the larger glitters with each of these. Zoya is by far my favorite polish brand but sadly this collection is a fail for me.
Did you grab any of these? Have better luck then me?

These will retail at $10 a bottle. Make sure to follow Zoya at your preferred social networking site to get inside news on deals, they always have something up their sleeve :D

Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection, Review

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

I have the most gorgeous polishes to review for you today. Yes you guessed right it is the Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection! I am first going to start out saying my original thoughts on this collection are ALL completely wrong. First off I thought, o boy chunky glitter's this is going to be a pain to apply. I then also thought wow these are going to be extremely rough and get caught on everything. Also, as with with all glitters I was not excited about the removal process. I am happy to say that none of that was true with these polishes! Check the preview out below and click over the jump for my full review with swatches and a video of these polishes!

Zoya Summer Pixie Dust Review, Part 2 with Nail Art.

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Today I thought I would bring some shine to everyone's Monday with the last three Zoya Summer Pixie Dust! If you missed the first three I reviewed last Friday you can find it HERE. With the same set up I will show my nail art first than macros with each color and my review, let's get started!


Polka Dot with Liberty and Miranda


 I also got a before picture to show with the two colors and no polka dots

  
Liberty and Miranda


 As much as I love the nail art I really love these two just by themselves side by side! Now for some macros of these two.


Liberty- "best described as a blue sugary sparkle." I am not one to wear this dark of a blue alone but I totally can see myself rocking this. Shown is 2 coats.


 Miranda- "best described as a rose sparkle." This is my favorite shade of pink, I love rosy pinks and the sparkle is gorgeous. Shown is 2 coats.

Next I have a design with just Stevie, you all know my love of purple so I rocked this mani for three days!!


Zoya: Stevie and Mira


This is actually day two of wearing this mani, and I have to say even after day three it looked the same with NO tip wear at all :D


Stevie- "best described as a violet sparkle." I love the sparkle in this color, I do wish it was a darker purple since I prefer plums over lavender (purple freak) but it's great for summer being a brighter purple. I actually have shown 3 coats since I tried to make it a darker purple, you can get away with 2 tho.

My favorite from these three is defiantly Liberty surprisingly. All together I love every single one of these summer pixie's. Do you have a favorite of the six?

These will retail at $9 a bottle and $54 for all six!  Zoya Summer Pixie Dust can be found online HERE. Make sure to follow Zoya at your preferred social networking site to get inside news on deals, they always have something up their sleeve :D



Today is national purple up day to support military men and woman and their kids that have to deal with parents going away for long periods of time. My Stevie nail art is what I am wearing today to show my support!! Are you wearing purple today?

Zoya Summer Pixie Dust Review, Part 1 with Nail Art.

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

There are many reasons why today is a GREAT day, one of the main reasons is that I have Zoya's Summer Pixie Dust to share with you, and the other is that it is Friday!!! When I knew I was receiving these to review I wanted to think of some fun nail art to show you instead of regular swatches that you will be seeing from other bloggers. For today's I have Solange, Beatrix, and Destiny in a fun gradient and also macros of each color in which I will talk about their formula's.


 Pinky to Pointer is Solange, Beatrix and Destiny


Dont they make a pretty gradient? I did this gradient by hand instead of make up sponge. Now for macros with each colors desciption and formula. 


Solange- "best described as a gold metal foil sparkle featuring a Zoya EXCLUSIVE GOLD PIGMENT."  This color is defiantly the one with the most sparkle and my favorite of these three. This is with 2 coats no topcoat.


Beatrix- "best described as a tangerine metal sparkle." If you like orange this color will not disappoint! I can imagine I will get some awesome summer mani's with this color also. Shown is 2 coats, at first I thought this may take three since the first coat was so sheer but it build very well.

oops alittle blurry :S
  
Destiny- "best described as a coral metal sparkle." So I may of thought this was a red polish... but I am happy it is actually coral I love coral for spring :D Shown is actually 3 coats, this one was the most sheer.

Overall I have no complaints with formula or application. I am still in love with these colors and so happy to have them all. I will have my review to the last three on monday!

These will retail at $9 a bottle and $54 for all six!  Zoya Summer Pixie Dust can be found online HERE. Make sure to follow Zoya at your preferred social networking site to get inside news on deals, they always have something up their sleeve :D

Polish Days: Vintage

Second post today since it's March Polish Days today! It took me sometime to think of what to do for this theme, Vintage. The only thing I could really come up with is Lace and it was hard to come up with a design. I was lucky to stumble upon this pin and it inspired me.


Zoya Pixie Dust: Chyna
Art Club Duo Pen Stripper: White

Also I used my first Pixie Dust for this mani, boy o boy am I in love!  I have to say I really wasn't expecting anything great of the Pixie Dusts since swatches never caught my eye. I of course like to give everything a try, especially since I had a coupon, so I grabbed two. WOW I read on someone's blog that the shimmer is really hard to capture and they were right, you just have to see these in person! Make sure to check out what the other participants did for the theme Vintage below!
