Hi there!! It's Wednesday and CHILLY!! I know a lot of areas are already getting snow and we've seen some flurries where I live but no accumulation yet. To be honest, I hope the snow holds off a bit longer!!!
Today I have swatches of the new Zoya Ultra Pixie Dusts for Fall 2014! These are definitely more different than the classic PixieDusts.
Read why and see more swatches after the jump!
First up is 'Oswin', a cherry red textured polish with as Zoya describes, "Mega Hex particles"
'Oswin' is gorgeous, no lie about that. I applied 3 easy coats, the first one being sparse with more of the jelly base showing through. Coverage built up nicely by the third coat. When applying the PixieDusts, I don't apply any base or top coat and wait a good 5 minutes in between each coat. I just wish these were more like the original PixieDusts which I DON'T OWN!!! I found this one dried the most "matte" on me.
Next up is 'Arianna', a deep currant red with the same characteristics as 'Oswin'.
At first glance, these look veeerrryy similar. But they're not. 'Arianna' is the deeper sister to 'Oswin'. This one doesn't dry as matte though, it has that shiny, squishy appearance to it. Le-sigh, if only these dried more matte!! I applied 3 coats using the same technique as I did with 'Oswin'. Very pretty and has the nicest cranberry tinge to it!
Lastly, we have 'Noir', my favorite of the trio!!
This is a plum jelly base with mulberry colored glitters. This one had more of the jelly base and wasn't as glitter dense as the previous two. Nonetheless, I heart this one!! Maybe it's that gorgeous shade of sangria that makes me want a glass of wine RIGHT MEOW! This one didn't dry very matte either which I found disappointing. 3 coats.
Yeeeaah, this macro sucks.
Overall, I liked these but I'm not in love with them. I just wish there were more glitter and these dried more matte!! I still love Zoya, I just wish they would put out more of the original PixieDusts in these shades!!!
