Zoya Magical Pixie Summer 2014 Collection - Swatches & Review

Hi babes! Today I have swatches and a review of the Zoya Magical Pixie Summer 2014 Collection! The collection consists of three not-so-summery-but-still-gorgeous shades - Arlo, Bar and Ginni - with the Zoya PixieDust formula of large glitter and holographic shimmer. Let's check them out!

Zoya Magical Pixie Summer 2014 Collection

Arlo is described as a glittering violet amethyst. 
Arlo was three coats of buttery smooth application. It always surprises me how easy this Magical PixieDust formula is to apply (and remove!). It never really seems chunky even though it's packed to the max with glitter. The color is true to the thumb, pointer and middle finger. Unfortunately, the sun came out and lightened the last two fingers.

 Bar is described as a glittery nude topaz.
Now we all know how much I love nude nails and this just takes it to the next awesome level. It kind of reminds me of Britney Spears' VMA performance outfit from like, 2001. Anyone remember that? Three coats of smooth sailing on this baby.

Ginni is described as a glittery pink tourmaline.
Unfortunately, I had an issue with Ginni but I think it's just because the bottle arrived slightly open so the formula kind of thickened during shipping. It was a little bit gloopier to apply but surprisingly it was still workable. Three coats brought this glitter bomb to full opacity.

Overall: Even though they're not really your typical bright summer shades, it's actually a bit refreshing to see these three instead of neons. All three were gorgeous although I did have issues with Ginni. Again, I'm chalking it up to the bottle arriving open which thickened the formula. 

Availability: Buy | Price: $10 each or $30 for all three
