Hi folks!

Anyone watching the World Cup?? It’s been great so far!!

Anyway, for those not interested in football, here are some nail polish swatches.

Zoya Magica Pixie Dust Collection – Summer 2014

Zoya has brought out their summer versions of their Pixie Dust collection, which is a textured and matte nail polish.  They’ve brought out other versions reviewed here and here.  There are just three colours this time and as usual, Zoya does a really great job with this formula.  There are consistently some of the best that I have tried.  Wonderful array of colours and there are slight variations between the this collection and older ones.  Zoya recommends that these polishes are applied to the naked nail, free of oils and without a base coat or a top coat.  In these swatches, I applied two coats.  The formula is quite thick, which makes sense as both the matte finish and glittery texture lend to this.  The caps are also have a matte, rubberized finish.  Polishes are available from zoya.com, and select retailers for USD$10 each.

So lehwe go!

So what makes this “magical”?

These sand-textured polishes have silver micro-glitter as well as medium-sized, hexagonal holographic glitter and small, circular holographic glitter.  This gives that added, multi-dimensional sparkle and of course I love it!! This formula also has a milky/creamy appearance, and the base is semi-opaque.  All swatches done with two coats, no base coat.
