The Zoya 2013 PixiDust Collection includes six shades. Zoya polishes are the Big 5 Free Healthy Formula polishes. Free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor and dibutyl phthalates. Zoya is also a vegan friendly nail color.

Shades in the 2013 PixiDust Collection:
  • Tomoko: a romantic champagne silver with a matte, textured, sparkling metal finish.
  • Chita: a forest green in a matte, textured, sparkling finish
  • Sunshine: a "Van Gogh" navy blue in a matte, textured, sparkling finish
  • Carter: a royal purple in a matte, textured, sparkling metal finish
  • Arabella: a rich fuchsia pink in a matte, textured, sparkling finish
  • Dhara: a firey orange copper with a matte, textured, sparkling metal finish

For the PixiDust polishes, Zoya recommends that you do NOT use a base coat or a top coat. The PixiDust polishes dry down to a slightly textured matte finish, but of course if you wanted them to be smoother and shiny you could add a top coat. You kind of get two finishes in one with these polishes; applying them and allowing them to dry as is, or adding a top coat to get a more smooth, shiny look.

For the photos, I used two coats of polish for each pic where the polish is on the nails but I will say that some of them seemed to be pretty opaque in just one coat! Shades Chita, Sunshine, and Arabella were most opaque in one coat. The rest are opaque in 2 coats.

I think this color collection is really pretty for fall. My top three shades from this collection are Tomoko, Dhara, and Chita - but they are all pretty! I will say that I thought they should have switched shade names in this collection; the shade Dhara should be Sunshine as it's a bright sunny orange, where as the shade Sunshine is more like a denim blue and not Sunshine, but whatevs, lol.

I wanted to show these polishes on my nails, but my nails have been so badly neglected lately with how busy my life has been. I do plan to do some NOTD's with these polishes coming up, so be sure to follow my Facebook and Instagram to see pics in case I don't post on here (I often post Looks of the Day on my Facebook and Instagram or just random photos of me wearing certain polishes or makeup looks).

Anyways, I really like Zoya polishes and I think their PixiDust polishes are really pretty and I like the textured finish. The Fall 2013 collection is pretty and I'd recommend you check it out! Let me know which shade is your favorite below!
