Zoya Pixie Dust Collection

I wasn't too excited with Zoya's announcement of the Pixie Dust Collection.  I was very skeptical about  the textured finish and did not want to think about removal.

Well, boy, was I wrong!!!!!!

It's texture, matte, and lots of sparkles!!!!!!
Feels like an ultrafine emery board (do NOT use nails as emery boards)
Application is pretty normal.  No base coat needed, top coat is optional.  Colors are very sheer 2-3 thin coats for maximum coverage.
Color selection is gorgeous.
the added sparkle is just bling for your nails and welcomes nail art.
Removal: not as bad as glitter but not as simple as non-textured.  Just a rub-a-dub-dub.  I'd say somewhere in between:



It's note worthy: Those of you that like me like to peel off your nail polish (NPR: try to stop) These are NOT peelable.  So talk about durability.  You can leave it on virtually forever.

*I can see this collection being a good recommendation for anyone with nail/polish biting issues so you can keep your nails painted to avoid "temptation".  This polish stays ON!*

First up is Nyx, a periwinkle of the blue-ish lilac-ish family.

Godiva is a sophisticated nude-tan-beige.  Perfect for day or night.  Makes me feel like am wearing real pixie dust... (haha! "real" pixie dust) :-p

London is a neutral gray.  Perfect for a fun night out in the city.  Sparkles like a city night view.

Vespa is the latest member of the green family.  With a spring around the corner this is a stash must have.  Reminds me of Tinker Bell.

Despite horrible lighting this is me vespa-ing.

Look at this mani made with Dahlia and Chyna.  After a few days, some balding occurred but overall application remained INTACT!
