Oh, Zoya. How is it possible for you to steal my heart again and again and again and ... okay, you get the picture. In any case, I've fallen head over heels for Nyx, one of the colors from the new (and much anticipated) PixieDust Collection.

I waited with bated breath for this collection to arrive. PixieDust is a brand-new concept from Zoya -- textured, matte and incredibly sparkly. The finish is supposed to look like glittery sugar upon the nails. Well, Nyx certainly succeeds! The periwinkle blue is shot through with tons of silver sparkle, and once it dries, it really does look like sugar. And, while I'm normally not a fan of matte polishes, this one is just so spectacular that I have no choice but to love it.

Zoya recommends that you apply their PixieDust collection with no base coat or top coat for full effect. I did just that and used two coats for full opacity. I'm a bit concerned about wearing nail polish with no base coat, but I'm going with my gut and trusting Zoya on this one. Hopefully when I remove the polish (we'll see how difficult that is, since it's a matte glitter), I won't be left with a blue tinge on my nails!

What's on your nails right now? Are you dying for the PixieDust collection? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

  1. I have the Godiva shade. Love the sparkle and texture of these polishes! But it's Zoya, can't go wrong with them. :)
