Zoya PixieDust Fall Edition

New sparkly, textured nail polishes in rich autumn colors? 
Yes, please!
Top: Tomoko, Chita, Sunshine; Bottom: Carter, Arabella, Dhara
Zoya continues to impress us with their PixieDust formula that features just enough sparkle to make those tips twinkle, while showcasing this trendy finish. This collection is a smorgasbord of fall color, with a great variety. I think that it includes a little bit of something to please nearly everyone (provided that you are a fan of textured finishes)!

Tomoko is described as "a romantic champagne silver." It falls somewhere between silver and gold but it quite captivating in all lighting. This is one metallic that will flatter all skin tones  The swatch shown is two thin, smooth coats.

Chita, "a forest green ," was opaque in ONE coat! The swatch shows one coat of this pigmented blue leaning forest green (no staining). The "glitter" in this polish is a light gold/silver that resembles the color of Tomoko. It kind of evokes feelings of Christmas because it reminds me of frost covered pines. I think this one is a fabulous variation of the Pantone Color of the Year, emerald.

Sunshine has such a perfect description of "a "Van Gogh" navy blue." I love this description of this dusty blue that falls somewhere between sapphire and denim. This polish was also very pigmented and was nearly a one coater, but two coats were used above. There is a silver shimmer/glitter/pixiedust throughout. Also this baby barely stained. Meaning that I don't think it stained but it did take a little extra effort to remove the blue pigment but it did remove with cotton and remover.

Carter is "a royal purple" and looks fit for a king! This polish appears to have an indigo base and is packed with bright purple pixiedust glitter. I was surprised by how elegant this purple was once on. This swatch shows two easy coats (no staining).

Arabella sounds like the name of a little girl whose dream is becoming a princess. How fitting that it is "a rich fuchsia pink." This baby appears to have both hot fuchsia and silver pixiedust glitter. It kind of looks like Arabella could be Bobbi's cool-toned sister (Irresistible, 2013). This was another nearly one coater. Two coats are shown in the above swatches.

Dhara is "a firey orange copper " that reminds me of pumpkin picking, pumpkin spiced lattes, jack-o-lanterns...you get the picture. This pumpkin orange has coral undertones and is lit from within by lots of gold glitter. The above swatch shows two coats. AND I am convinced that she is Amy's textured twin sister (Irresistible, 2013)!

The Verdict:
I love everything about autumn and these are making me long for everything that the season brings. These colors are lovely and I cannot wait to wear them again. If you like textures, these are perfection! They had no problems with application or drying time. The ones that stood out the most to me were Tomoko, Carter, and Chita.
