ZOYA Summer 2013 Pixie Dust Review


Press Sample

As promised, here are swatches of the Summer 2013 Zoya Pixie Dust collection! These were beasts to get photographed, I seriously swatched/photographed them 3 times, the pictures kept coming out with everything in focus but the polish! :D



Hit the jump for the swatches and reviews!








Zoya Miranda

Medium pink sparkle texture

A happy pink sparkly texture perfect for summer with pink gumdrop-y sugaryness.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: Pixie Dust (textured sparkle), 2-3 coats to be opaque









Coral sparkle texture with golden tones 

I love this color! It's summer in a bottle, and this sun-kissed coral is sure to turn heads! As you can see on the one-coat index finger, this one has a pink base, oddly enough.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: Pixie Dust (textured sparkle), 2-3 coats to be opaque









Tangerine sparkle texture

Sunshine in a bottle. I love the golden glints that spark from this polish in the light!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: Pixie Dust (textured sparkle), 2-3 coats to be opaque









24 karat gold sparkle texture

Your nails will look like a million bucks with a few coats of this glistening polish! The pharaohs would approve! :D

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: Pixie Dust (textured sparkle), 2-3 coats to be opaque









Blue sparkle texture 

This brilliant blue with blue sparkle reminds me of summer waves and blue jeans. I used it in my 4th of July manicure, and it was the perfect compliment to my red and white stripes! :D

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: Pixie Dust (textured sparkle), 2-3 coats to be opaque









Lavender sparkle texture

One of my favorite flowers of all is the Lilac, and Stevie is a great way to wear it on my fingers. I was actually surprised that I enjoyed this one so much, since I tend to not wear purples very often! This was the only color that only needed 2 coats in my experience. 

Opacity scale (1-5): 3.5

Finish: Pixie Dust (textured sparkle), 2 coats to be opaque



All in all, I loved these new additions to the Zoya PixieDust collection! I'm still loving this texture trend, I can only imagine all the possibilities for nail art accents! The colors are fun and diverse, and each one has summer written all over it. These make me SO excited for the upcoming fall PixieDust collection!! Keep an eye out!

What are your thoughts on the current texture trend?  Which color would you rock and how?

  1. First of all and once again: so happy your are back. I remember when I don;t have my own blog and followed you being a little bit shy :)

    these swatches are great and I know how difficult the textured effect can be to capture in the photos. My fav is Zoya Stevie.
    Hugs from Poland!

  3. I love the colors, but I am just not into the textured trend at all. I would be rubbing it and picking at it way too much.

  4. I really love Liberty and Stevie. Those are beautiful! Especially Liberty. That blue jumped off the screen at me. I am loving these textures now. It took me six months to join the party, but I love the textured polishes now and can't get enough.

  14. Were the Zoya pixie dust easy to remove with nailpolish remover? Do you use acetone or acteone free remover? Method of polish removal for glitter heavy polishes?

  15. I love Pixie Dust! Rocking Solange right now :) your photos are beautiful, and I loooove your nail shape! So beautiful, and the perfect length (in my opinion). Wish I could get mine to stay like that for more than a couple days!

  16. Oops, by Solange I definitely meant Beatrix. Is it just me or do Zoya's names throw anyone else off sometimes too? :P
