Zoya Wishes Collection Swatches and Review

*press sample*

Hey guys!

The holiday season is upon us...can you believe it?! I'm getting a head start on my gift shopping and trying not to get wrapped up in the shopping frenzy this weekend. haha

Today I am showing you the Wishes collection from Zoya. This is their offering for the holiday season. It consists of 3 regular finish polishes and 3 PixieDusts.

Prim is a periwinkle shimmer. I think Blogger messed with this photo somehow. I tried uploading it multiple times and it's not showing up 100% color accurate even though it looks right in my photo editor. Weird. This has much more purple undertone than a blue one like it looks here. I did 2 coats.


Haven is one of my favorites! It's a gorgeous plummy purple that is so glowy! 2 coats.


And finally, Willa. This is a standard black creme. I don't know if I would have picked a plain black for a holiday collection but it's always nice to have another black creme on hand. This is 2 coats.


On to the Pixie Dusts! While I love the past PixieDust and Ultra PixieDust shades, I have to say the formula on these wasn't my favorite. They took forever to dry down to a textured finish. They stayed glossy for about 10 minutes before looking textured. Once it dried down more, I felt that the texture effect wasn't as apparent as past PixieDust shades. It was more like a regular glitter polish waiting to be top coated. Not to say I don't still like these polishes, but I don't know if I would classify these as true PixieDusts.

Thea is a plummy purple with larger holo hex glitters. This is 2 coats.


Nori is a bright, blue shade with larger holo hex glitters. Very nice for the winter/holiday season. This is 2 coats but I think 3 would have been even better!


And finally, Imogen. This is the same make up as the other two PixieDusts. This one came across pretty chunky once applied which I was kind of bummed about. 2 coats.



Normally, Zoya can do no wrong in my eyes but this collection was just ok for me. I miss the original PixieDust shades and would love to see more colors in that formula. It's perfection. I think Prim and Haven are the standouts to me in this collection.

This collection is available now and can be purchased at Zoya.com.

Do you have any favorites or must haves from the Wishes collection?
