Zoya Magical Pixie Collection - Swatches & Review

I feel like the prettiest, princess fairy of them all with Zoya's new Magical Pixie Collection for Spring 2014. The collection is three colors in a holographic version of their PixieDust formula and gives the illusion of jewel encrusted nails which I've been waiting my entire life for. I mean, who hasn't been waiting?




Cosmo is a silver crystal sparkle textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles.

Vega is a blue opal sparkle textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles.

Lux is a rose quartz sparkle textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles.

The PixieDust formula continues to mystify me. Every time I'm convinced it's going to be incredibly gritty and hard to work with and every time they prove me wrong. This collection is no different! I really thought with all the holographic glitters in all the different sizes would pull and just be a huge glittery mess on my nail but the formula was incredibly smooth and easy to work with. I recommend applying thin coats to build up opacity although these polishes are so densely packed with glitter that it doesn't take long. Zoya recommends not using a base coat nor top coat unless you want a super glossy finish (HK Girl from Glisten & Glow is ah-mazing!).


My favorite would have to be Cosmo although they're all so incredibly bling-y and glittery (which are a few of my favorite things) that it's hard to choose. Which color is your favorite?

  2. I'm on the fence with these.. I love textured polishes, but these seem a little too chunky. They sure do shine, though!!

    1. They're a bit chunkier than the normal Pixie Dust formulas but I think if you like texture polishes, you'll like these!

  3. I love Vega! They are chunky.... I think I'll mainly use them for accent nails.

    1. I think if you don't use thin coats, it can get thick and gritty quick but thin coats is key! :)

  6. Cosmo is stunning, but I'm a bit hesitant to buy any of these because of chunky formula. My nails are very sensitive even to the smallest scratches, which is what's probably going to happen during removal.

  7. They're all so beautiful - I'm typically wary of a chunky formula, but love how these all just jump out.

    1. As long as you apply thin coats, I don't think they come out as chunky as they would if you applied normally. I was definitely surprised how wearable these wore since I hated textured polishes beforehand. Definitely changed my mind.
