Zoya Magical PixieDust for Summer 2014



The Zoya Magical PixieDusts for Summer 2014 are all glitter, holo, and texture -- but does the newer formula live up to dazzling summer concoctions?  Take a look to find out.

Bar
A yellowy nude gold, the texture on Bar gives the color and shine a lot of depth.  The formula. however, was terrible.  Thick and patchy, it was an absolute pain to get a second coat to lay evenly without goopy drag.  However, the base jelly color is so sheer, three coats are necessary to at least cover the base of my nails.  Pretty, but certainly not a pleasure to work with.

This rosy pink holographic glitter texture had the worse formula of the bunch in that not only was it goopy, but that the base jelly was so sheer, that even three coats couldn't hide the yellow of my nails.  Not a fan.

Another three coater, the purply pink jelly base is really lovely -- as a standalone color.  As a Pixie, the goop and sheerness only exacerbate the yellow in my nails, reflected even more with the hex glitter and holo gleam.  Such a shame because in the bottle this one completely won me over.

  1. I agree with your point at the end - they are much more sheer than I think people have begun to expect from the pixie line. These are almost toppers and not stand alone polishes. It makes me kinda sad a little.

  2. The formula, however, would not lend itself to any sort of workable topper though. They really are sad, I have to agree. Beautiful in the bottle, but a mess on the nail.

  3. ugh sheer polish are not my thing at all! I really like the textured trend but I find it so hard to get polishes that look pretty and have a good formula. Zoya are pretty expensive. I wouldn't expected better from them.

  6. Around €11 not including P+P. Depends on the seller really but that's the regular price you'd expect to pay.

  7. Yeah, these aren't worth spending that much. Other Zoya polishes, yes, but I really wasn't impressed with these.
