Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Summer 2014 Swatches and Review

*Press sample*

Happy Friday!

I've got swatches of Zoya's new Magical Pixie Dusts for Summer 2014 for you today! I seriously love the Magical Pixie Dust line. It's so freakin' blinged out thanks to the holo glitters and with no base or topcoat required....Yes, please!

As a note on the formula of these: Not sure if it's just me, but I felt that this summer collection applied a lot more evenly and easier than the original Magical Pixies. I think that this is because these newer ones have a more obvious tint to the base which helps even things out and cover better. All of my swatches are 2 coats.

Bar is a nude glitter. I love this. I feel like it matches my skin perfectly which makes my nails look like they are naturally blinged out. You get the best of both worlds: no in-your-face colors but a fabulous shine!

Ginni is an almost bubblegum pink shade. I love anything pink, so of course this is a fave for me as well.

And finally, Arlo. This magenta shade reminds me of grape popsicle juice. Hello, summer!

I obviously love these and recommend them to anyone. I know not everyone is on the texture train though. I honestly wasn't sure about the Magical Pixie Dusts until I got some of the spring ones in the Earth Day promotion. I quickly changed my mind after trying this new finish out in person!

The Summer Magical Pixie Dusts are available for purchase now at zoya.com.

Are you guys loving these new Zoyas?

Candy Stripe Nail Art with Zoya's Bubbly Collection

I wanted to share with you some fun summery nail art I did with the shades from Zoya's new Bubbly collection! This was quite simple to achieve and I believe anyone can do it.

I started with a white base and placed striping tape diagonally across the nail. I used all 6 Bubbly shades and painted in 1 coat in each section rotating the colors.

This reminded me of one of those huge lollipops with the rainbow swirled in it!

Zoya Bubbly Collection Swatches and Review

*press sample*

I've got the 2nd half of Zoya's newest collection for Summer 2014 to show you today, called Bubbly. These all have jelly-ish finishes, a semi-sheer base, packed with golden shimmer and iridescent glitters. These can be a topper in one coat or full coverage in 3-4 coats. I quite liked all of these and love their versatility! 

I wanted to show you how these work both as a topper and full coverage, so the ring finger in my swatches is 3-4 coats of the polish alone and the others are 1-2 coats over the corresponding color from the Tickled collection. Let's take a look!

Jesy is a medium orange. 3 fingers layered over Rocha.

Muse is a pretty blue that sort of reminds me of Charla in the bottle. Still very different though! 3 fingers layered over Ling.

Stassi is an apple green. 3 fingers layered over Tilda.

Alma was the only outlier that didn't have an obvious corresponding color in the Tickled collection but it still works beautifully over Wendy (3 fingers layered). This goes to show that these can be used as toppers over other colors besides the obvious match and have a cool effect!

Binx is a magenta pink. 3 fingers layered over Rooney.

Harper is a true pink. 3 fingers layered over Kitridge.

I would definitely recommend this collection for it's versatility and because I don't think there are any polishes out there like this. Of course, in true Zoya fashion, the formula is great too. Although these take up to 4 coats for complete coverage with no base, each coat dries fast and the end result is not thick or gloopy.

These are available for purchase now at zoya.com for $9/bottle.

Any of these catching your eye?

Keep an eye out for some fun nail art I did with this collection on the blog soon!

Zoya Tickled Collection Swatches and Review

*press sample*

Hey guys!

How about some swatches of one Zoya's newest collections for summer 2014? It's the Tickled collection, which are all cremes. I've never met a Zoya cream I didn't like formula-wise and these were right on point as well!


Rocha is a hot red/orange shade. I feel like my photo is leaning a bit more orange than this really is in person. 2 coats for perfection!

Ling is a medium blue with a slight dustiness to it. 2 coats for full coverage. This is very similar to some other Zoya blues I own -Robyn and Breezi- but neither are exact.

Tilda is a yellow based apple green. Not sure I've got anything like it in my stash! 2 coats for full coverage.

Rooney is a magenta pink shade. Very pretty and another I don't think I have a polish similar to. This is a few shades lighter and less purple than Zoya Areej. 2 coats for full coverage.

Kitridge is one of those awesome neon/pastel hybrids. This is a super bright bubblegum pink shade! I'm a pink lover and this is super pretty. Although this was the streakiest to apply, with some effort it can still look flawless. 3 thin coats makes it a bit easier.

And finally, Wendy. This watermelon coral/pink just makes me happy! So bright and playful. This is 2 coats.

I also wanted to note that none of my swatches include topcoat and all of these cremes have a pretty great shine on their own don't you think? I would definitely recommend top coat just to increase staying power of course.

Overall, another fanastic, quality collection from Zoya! Keep an eye out for swatches of the Bubbly collection here on the blog very soon!

These are currently shipping now for $9/bottle on zoya.com.

Which are your faves?
