... but I'll be branding my support today with this post. I support marriage equality. If you know me personally, you'll see this symbol on my FB profile.
I don't expect my readers to agree with me. I am simply showing my support in honor of the many friends I've had in my life who I believe should have the same right to marry the one they love as I do.

I've really gotten out of my habit of reviewing collections. It's hard!And there are bloggers out there who do this WAY better than I do. Better cameras, better nails, better cuticles, better whatever. But the Zoya Pixie Dust collection actually inspired me to get off my butt, not care how BAD my pictures are, and actually write this post - because this collection rocks my socks!
|The Glamorous Dahlia|
Thank goodness for Picasa, right?
By now, you know the deal with these if you're a Zoya enthusiast like I am. They're matte in texture with TONS of sparkle! You get a little bit of grittiness in the texture because of the uneven surface, but the end result is AWESOME.
- London - This is a matte smokey gray with silver glitter particles.
- Nyx - Rainy day sky blue with silver glitter particles.
- Vespa - Sea Green with silver glitter particles.
- Godiva - Light Beige (see my discussion on the use of the word "nude") with indeterminate color particles (they could be golder or silver, I couldn't quite tell with this one).
- Chyna - True awesome dark red with dark red glitter particles ( They might have been something else but they sure looked red to me).
- Dahlia - Black matte with loads of silver glitter particles.
Each of these took 3 coats. No base or top coat, though you certainly can use a top coat if you want to make these glossy. I was absolutely AMAZED that the wear was so long WITHOUT a base coat.
Hands down, this is THE BEST formula I've ever had in terms of wear. Do you see my nails in those pictures? Do you see how long they were getting? Most of the time I'd go at a whopping four days before needing to remove and move on with Zoya Pixie Dust. Shock and awe, folks. Shock and awe!
|The dreaded Chyna - See what I mean??? Ick on me.|
Snatch up the colors you like right now! Avoid Chyna, but fall in love with Dahlia. Supposedly these are limited edition, but they are coming out with another round in this formula for summer, I hear. I hope they'll become permanent firetruck. Because this formula and collection is a clear winner in my book.
You can purchase Zoya Pixie Dust Collection from Zoya's website for $54 (all six) or $8 individually.
