Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle Spring 2013 Collection - Swatches and Revew



Hello beauties! Today I have the Zoya PixieDust Collection to share with you.  The collection consists of 6 matte textured polishes that look great alone as well as with a top coat. 

"This newly developed formula is sure to captivate with a magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other.  The color experts at Zoya have created six, long-wearing stunners for the introduction of this look."




Chyna - lovely pomegranate textured polish with shades of deep crimson and red glitter. I'm in love with the color.  Very stunning. 

It reminds me of Ruby Pumps when glossy but far more interesting. It almost has a jelly look, where you can see through layers, when a top coat is applied. 

Dahlia - intense graphite black sand with silver glitter throughout. It looks amazing on the nail and the glitter really pops when a top coat is applied. I used 2 coats of Dahlia.

Dahlia with 2 coats of clear to glossify. Isn't this a beauty?

London - smokey grey with silver glitter throughout. I used 2 coats to achieve this look. 

London with 1 layer of top coat. 

Godiva. Soft nude sparkle. It reminds me of All Hail The Queen but with more sparkle. I used 2 coats. 

Godiva with 1 layer of top coat to glossify. 

Nyx - bright periwinkle sand with shimmering glitter throughout. Very soft and feminine.  The formula on Nyx was a little thinner than the others.  I used 2 coats. 

I added another coat plus a top coat to glossify. 

Vespa - mint kiss sparkle. Another soft and feminine sand color with shimmer throughout. I used 2 coats. 


A base coat is not recommended to be used with the polish. I didn't use a base coat when I swatched them and they applied smoothly without any problems.  A top coat is not recommended in order to create the Pixie Dust matte effect but I added it just for fun to see the outcome.

Overall the collection is great. Textured polishes are a nice switch from the norm and are very interesting to look at on the nail.  They're not too gritty and won't snag your hair.  They also look amazing glossified so it's like getting 2 polishes in 1.  Plus they all have that hidden glitter shimmering effect which creates a sparkle on the nail.  The brights are pretty for a soft look but for striking glamour go with the intensified black and red, Chyna and Dahlia.

The PixieDust Collection is available at Zoya.com. $8.00 each (US)
