Zoya: Carter – Pixie Dust

When seeing swatches of Zoya‘s Carter by Gimme All The Polish (who is repeatedly killing me with all her fantastic swatches) I knew I needed to get my hands on it. And it’s no surprise that I love it! LOVE! The formula is perfect. I used three thin coats here:zoya - carterNow take a look at how it looks with top coat:zoya - carter tcWow! A mind blowing polish, don’t you think?

Zoya: London – Pixie Dust

Here’s another beauty from the Pixie Dust Collection by Zoya.
Meet London:zoya london - pixie dustThis was sent to me by Holly at Miss Holly Berries, in our swap back in February. Thanks again girl! :*

Zoya describes this polish as a fog gray with a sugared sparkle. I couldn’t have described it better. It has the same silver glitter particles as his cousin, Vespa.
To make this swatch a bit different than usual, I decided on creating a gradient manicure with London. It is such an easy way to give a textured polish just a little bit extra. Lacey at Lace & Lacquers created a great tutorial of how to do this. Easy ha!zoya london - pixie dust2What do you think of the textured trend?

Thanks for watching!

Zoya Vespa – Pixie Dust Collection

Recently the sweet Holly at Misshollyberries and I did a polish swap. It was my first swap and I love it 😀 Thanks so much Holly for making my first swap a great success! At least, if everything arrives safely with you 😉
Besides a ton of other gorgeous polishes that Holly chose for me, I am now the happy owner of two of Zoya’s Pixie Dust Collection, London and this one Vespa. zoya vespaZoya describes Vespa as a Mint Kiss with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula. I couldn’t have described it better. It has very fine silver glitter that makes this polish so sparkling. It’s more sparkling in real life than the pictures show. A matte textured finish with sparkle. Awesome ha! I used three thin coats which quickly dried. And yes, it’s gritty, but not as much as rough as I expected it to be. zoya vespa1I love it. How about you?
