Pixi Dust the new textured nail polish collection from Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments is definitely different from anything I have tried before. Textured nail polish is definitely the trend of the moment so you know Zoya had to wow us with their contribution to the trend and once again they did not disappoint.
This collection contain six new nail polish colors with a matte textured finish. These very unique polishes are hard to describe but remind me of colored sugar with diamond dust. The feel is textured but not too rough and they sparkle like no other matte nail polish I have ever seen. If I had to compare the texture to something it would be a light sand paper feel. The finish dries textured but is not rough enough to snag on anything. Pixi Dust is meant to have texture and should be applied without base or topcoat. If the textured finish just isn’t your thing I have also top coated all the colors so you can get a feel for what they would look like smooth. Each of these swatches is two thin coats of the Zoya Pixi Dust nail polish. For the top coated pictures I used one coat of Hong Kong Girl. The swatch on the left is Pixi Dust textured and the swatch on the right is Pixi Dust with topcoat.
Chyna: A deep ruby red reminiscent of Dorothy’s slippers in the wizard of Oz.
London: A light grey.
Godiva: A soft beige neutral.
I had no application issues with any of the six colors but given that they are textured you need to do thin coats and allow the first coat to dry a bit before adding a second coat. I found when trying to apply a second coat with the first coat still wet I ended up dragging it off and it would get thick in spots. Opacity with two coats was about a four on the lighter colors and a five with the darker colors doing two coats. For full opacity with the lighter colors do three thin coats. Removal was the same as a normal glitter polish for me I used my Zoya Remove Plus and removed with no trouble or mess.
What do you think of Pixi Dust, is the textured trend one that you like. If I had to pick a favorite from this collection it would be a tie between Vespa and Godiva. I have to admit when I first saw the textured polished I wasn’t sold but they are growing on me. Not sure I am a fan of the textured thing, still getting used to it. I love these top coated you still get the sparkle but can have them smooth. It also makes the color more vibrant almost like diamond glass which reminded me of Zoya’s Ornate Collection.
