Zoya Ultra Pixie Dust Fall 20145:00 AM
Today I have the Fall 2014 Ultra Pixie collection from Zoya for you! The collection consists of three shades all of which have fine micro glitter and mega hex particles for tone on tone 3D effects. These do not need any top or base coat and are super fast drying so they're very easy to use. I wasn't a huge fan of the Magical Pixie Dusts that wee released over the summer so I was a little pensive about these. It's not that the shades weren't pretty or the formula wasn't great it's just the effect of them was a little much for me. These are far less chunky and much easier to wear than those! I used two coats for each of these swatches. Zoya recommends two to three thin coats.
First up is Noir, described as a deep, vampy plum with red hexes. I think this one was my favorite of the three. The plum jelly base is super pretty and the effect reminds me a lot of the black jelly polishes with purple and red glitter that were popular awhile back. It's textured but not insanely so and it was glittery and pretty.
Next up is Oswin, a red textured polish. This one is really stunning too although there are no different colored glittered flecks in it. It seemed the most opaque of the three and the 3D effect was really evident on this one. Dr. Who fans will also appreciate the name. ;)
Finally we have Arianna, a blue toned wine with red hexes. This one was the least opaque for me. I love the color of it but it really needed another coat for opacity (again Zoya recommends between two and three coats). Overall I really liked this collection and I'm not much of a fan of reds. The colors are all really great for fall and I think they'll be really great for the holidays! Which one is your favorite?
