Review & Swatches - Zoya Summer 2013 PixieDust Collection

Hi everyone!

Today I've got swatches of the new Summer 2013 PixieDust Collection for you! It's no secret that I love textured polish, so I was super excited when Zoya released a collection of six brightly coloured textured polishes. Check them out below!


The PixieDust polishes seem to take a little longer to dry on me than some of the other textured polishes I've tried. It's not a big problem, but I think it's worth mentioning. I waited about 20-25 minutes after swatching each of these before I took photos.

Beatrix is bright, sunny orange packed with lots of gold microglitter. If you're like me and you like orange and textured polish, you'll love this one. The formula was really good and I used three coats for my swatch.



Destiny is a bright red-orange with gold and orange microglitter. This one is very similar to OPI Jinx from the Bond Girls Collection, which just happened to be my favourite from the collection. The formula was great and I've shown three coats in my swatch.



Liberty is a bright, electric blue with blue microglitter. It'll come as no surprise that the blue polish is my favourite one. I did have a little staining after removing this though, so I would suggest doubling up on base coat. The formula was really good and I found three coats provided the best coverage.



Miranda is a medium rosy pink with silver and pink microglitter. Pretty, but I suppose if I'm bring critical, I do wish it was a little brighter. The formula was really good and I used three coats for my swatch.



Solange is a bright yellow-gold with lots of gold microglitter. I like this one a lot, but it's on the warm side so it doesn't go as well with my skin tone as I would like. It's gorgeous, though. Very blingy. The formula starts out sort of sheer but it builds up nicely with three coats.



Stevie is a light lilac with silver microglitter. This one is very pretty and feminine. It reminds me a lot of a few of the colours in the first set of PixieDusts, though. Much like Miranda, I do wish this one was also a little brighter. The formula was great and I've shown three coats below.



I love textured polish and I love bright colours, so it's no surprise that I'm a big fan of this collection. My favourites are Beatrix, Destiny and Liberty.

The Zoya PixieDust Collection is available from the Zoya website ($9 each) for US residents or from Nail Polish Canada ($9.75 each) for those of us in Canada.

  2. I really love all of these. Zoya did a great job with this collection! It's interesting you said that Solange was sheer for you... for me it was so dense and saturated that I almost only needed one coat!

  5. These are all so beautiful! It's interesting that they take longer to dry than some other textured polishes, though. I guess their amazing colors make up for it though!

  7. Have you ever tried drying drops with these? I don't own any drying drops but I am curious to see if it would affect the drying time at all. I find that even after a whole day, it gets even matter/texture-y.

    1. I haven't, but now that you mention it, it might be interesting to give them a try! I never really bothered with them before because I swear by Seche Vite, but of course these aren't meant to be worn with top coat.
