Zoya PixieDust Collection!

Today I have the Zoya PixieDust Collection for review! The collection is described by Zoya  as follows 

"Zoya PixieDust
Infused with Magic and Wonder!
Featuring the latest “must-have” nail polish finish – Textured, Matte & 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 look...

Dahlia (ZP656) - Black Beauty sparkle, exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.
Chyna (ZP657) - Red Dazzle sparkle, exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.
Godiva (ZP658) - Soft Nude sparkle, exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.
Vespa (ZP659) - Mint Kiss sparkle, exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.
Nyx (ZP660) - Perfect Periwinkle sparkle, exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.
London (ZP661) - Fog Gray sparkle, exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula. "

Vespa is a gorgeous wintry mint green with a matte sparkle. All of the PixieDust polishes have the same matte texture with sparkle! I used 2 coats for full opacity. I was expecting the polishes to be difficult to work with, but I had no issues with any of the polishes. The formula was pretty much the same for all of the PixieDust polishes, they applied evenly and were opaque after 2 coats.
I liked the color of Vespa, the shade is a unique color that I think can work for many different seasons, winter fall and spring!

Nyx is a gorgeous periwinkle with a blueish hue. I am a big fan of Nyx, the color is delicate and feminine but  not too soft, it still makes a statement!

London is a medium gray color, not too overpowering. I am always a fan of grays and London is not an exception. I used London for this mani of the day! I really think London can be versatile especially with topcoat.

Dahlia is a strong black with a powerful sparkle! Dahlia is a bit too overpowering for me, but I know some other people could definitely rock this!

I love the softness of Godiva, a sandy nude with the gorgeous PixieDust sparkle! I think Godiva can be worn year round, and is a spicier take on a normal nude polish. Godiva reminds me a beach sand and could definitely be used for some fun summer nailart!

Chyna stands out to me, the glitter is a bit different from the rest of the PixieDust polishes and reminds me of Dorothy's Slipper's from the Wizard of Oz! I am not normally a fan of reds, but there is something spectacular about Chyna and I get the feeling I will be using this polish to spice up a few manis!

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised by the PixieDust Collection! I was worried about the texture look, but I love the way these babies sparkle! I also love how they look with a few coats of topcoat! I cannot wait for the summer PixieDust Collection and hope they have the same gorgeous formula!
