Zoya PixieDust Special Texture Edition ($54; $9 each) fused with magic and wonder! The latest “must-have” nail polish finish – textured, matte and sparkling! 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 enchanting look.

My Thoughts:

I originally wasn’t interested in the  Zoya PixieDust collection because it reminded of glitter. However, after seeing swatches pop up on blogs and seeing how gorgeous and un-glitter like it was, I had to own it. Unlike glitter, the polish goes on so easily, just like regular nail polish. It goes on glossy and dries matte. In the photos below, you can see it drying; changing from glossy to matte. Also unlike glitter, the texture is different. It isn’t gritty and scratchy like how glitter can be. The Pixiedust polish feels bumpy, sort of how sandpaper feels bumpy but not as rough. The only thing the PixieDust shares with glitter is how it shined and sparkled. It’s suggested that you don’t use a base or top coat, but I decided to try it with a top coat just to see what it would look like. It looked amazing! The formula is a little bit on the sheer side but not a lot. You will need about 2-3 coats for full opacity. In the swatches below, I used 2 coats. I love all the shades, but my favorite shades from this collection are Dahlia (black) and Godiva (champagne). Overall, I love this collection. It’s unique and something I haven’t seen.

Zoya Hurry Up Polish Drying Drops Review

Zoya HurryUp Polish Drying Drops ($16)

What is Zoya Hurry Up Drying Drops

Zoya HurryUp is a miraculous liquid that dries polish completely from top coat through base coat. Never smudge your manicures again!

What Does Zoya Hurry Up Drying Drops

Impatience is a virtue. Manicures and pedicures are good to go with Zoya Hurry Up Speed Drops. These phenomenal bubble-preventing drops completely dry your topcoat,polish and base coat fast and enhance color vibrancy. Color stays fresh and gorgeous for up to two weeks.

How to Use Zoya Hurry Up Drying Drops

Apply one drop to base of each nail, tilt hand and allow product to spread naturally. Polish will dry in just five minutes. To extend your color up to two weeks, apply over Zoya Armor Topcoat every two days.

My Thoughts:

Zoya Hurry Up Polish Drying Drops is a quick nail polish drying product. It’s packaged in a glass bottle with a dropper. Zoya Hurry Up Polish Drying Drops did help my nail polish dry quicker, but it didn’t help the polish to dry completely in a short amount of time. The Hurry Up Drying Drops only dried the top layer enough so I could do small, easy tasks. I still had to wait quite awhile for the nail polish to completely dry. If I were to accidentally bump my nails against something, the polish would still smudge and get dinged if the polish wasn’t dry. I also did not like how oily it was. Because I had to use a dropper to apply, it would get everywhere and drip down my fingers. I couldn’t wipe it off for fear I would smudge the nail polish before it completely dried. Overall, I would skip Zoya’s Hurry Up Drying Drops. For something that costs $16, I was expecting a lot more.

Zoya Nail Polish in Amanda Review, Photos, and Swatches

Share

Zoya Nail Polish in Amanda ($7) Zoya Nail Polish in Amanda can be best described as: Medium muted peach creme with pink, brown and mauve undertones. A warm skin tone shade for a very natural look.

My Thoughts:

I have been on the hunt for the perfect beige nail polish shade to give the illusion of nude colored nails. I think I may have found it with Zoya’s Amanda. Amanda is a creamy shade that is neither too brown or too pink (at least for my liking). It’s a neutral shade so you can wear it everywhere: school, work, and out for a night of fun. I love that it gives off a professional, clean look.

Zoya Nail Polish in Adina Review, Photos, and Swatches

Share

Zoya Nail Polish in Adina ($7) Zoya Nail Polish in Adina can be best described as: Violet metallic multichrome. A frosty hint of green and magenta creates a unique “oil-slick” look.

My Thoughts:

I picked up Zoya’s Adina because of the really pretty grapey purple and mermaid green duochrome finish. Depending how the light reflects off the color, it changes from purple to green. The green reminds me of a fish or a mermaid tail for some reason. I can’t stop staring at it! It’s mesmerizing! It’s quite a one-of-a-kind color. I haven’t seen a shade quite like it. The polish goes on very smoothly, and all I needed was two coats to get the color I wanted.

Zoya Nail Polish in Lo Review, Photos, Swatches

Share

Zoya Nail Polish in Lo ($7) Zoya Nail Polish in Lo can be best described as: Bright, warm, medium pink creme with strong coral undertones. A unique summer pink that really flatters a tan.

My Thoughts:

Zoya’s Lo is part of the Gossip Collection. It was named after Lo Bosworth from MTV’s Laguna Beach and The Hills. I loved Lo when she was on Laguna Beach so I had to get this shade. Plus, I love pink nail polish!

This looked nothing like the photo on the Zoya site.

Here is the photo on the Zoya site:

I thought Lo would be a pretty dark cotton candy pink color like on the Zoya site. It was not. Instead, at least my bottle, was a bright pink. Sort of like a highlighter pink.  I was tad bit disappointed when discovering the color discrepancy because I own a shade that is very similar to this already (Revlon Pink Freeze).  It’s okay. I still like Lo anyways. This is the perfect color for showing off your summer tan. It’s opaque and creamy. Lo is not for people who are color shy. You can spot this bright pink a mile away!
