Zoya Spring PixieDust Collection Review

Happy Monday (if there is such a thing lol)!!! I have the Spring PixieDust collection to show you today!! I must say, I was not super excited about the texture trend... but Zoya proved my doubts wrong.

The sparkle in these Pixies made it incredibly difficult for my camera to capture a clear photo, so please excuse any blur lol. 


All descriptions were taken from the Zoya Website.

Dahlia: can be best described as a black beauty with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

This is two coats of Dahlia, as instructed be Zoya, without a base or a top coat. The feel of these polishes is sandpaper. You know I couldn't just leave it at that, so I tried all of these on with top coat as well.

With one coat of top coat. You still get the texture, but you get a nice shine to go along with it. And the top coat really made the sparkle pop. I prefer most of these with top coat. I will let you know when I don't!

Moving forward I will not "talk" as much :)

This is two coats of Chyna. She doesn't feel as pretty without the top coat. It looks almost dirty to me. But with the top coat? Woah, so pretty! The pictures are pretty, but no where near as pretty as it is in person.

Godiva: can be best described as a soft nude with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

This is my least favorite of the collection, I think it's because Im not a big fan of nude polishes. This is two coats of Godiva, although you could go three to eliminate all traces of nail line. I like Godiva better without a top coat; it seemed to mute the sparkle instead of enhancing.

Vespa: can be best described as a Mint Kiss with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

Vespa took 3 coats for even coverage. You know how I feel about green, so it's a no-brainer that this is my favorite of the collection. The minty color just makes me happy, even if it took an extra coat!

This is two coats of NYX. Like Godiva, it could have used a third to completely eliminate the nail line. This one is super pretty, and perfect for Spring!

London is my second favorite of the collection, and this is another one I like better without the top coat. This is two coats, and this is the first one I grabbed to put on.

Overall, I am very impressed with the PixieDusts. The formula for all of them was easy to work with and the dry time for these was phenomenally fast.

You can purchase these on the Zoya Website here, or at your local Ulta. They are $9 each.

I am waiting on pins and needles for the summer collection... because those bright beauties are calling my name!
