**press sample**Have you guys had a chance to check out the Zoya Ultra PixieDusts? They are a trio of textured polished with chunky glitter - and they are supposed to dry matte, but I never could get two of them to look supremely matte. Check em out after the cut!
I've taken a lot of pictures of this collection. You'll notice four photos for each color - sunlight, shade, indoors with natural light and indoors with flash (in that order, as if you are reading a book). I've done this for several reasons. I want to provide a wide variety of lighting options for you to see how the polish looks.
Let's start with my favorite of the trio - Oswin. I can't even put into words how magical this one looks on. I just kept staring at my nails, and rubbing them gently. It kind of reminds me of sparkly shoes... you know, like Dorothy's ruby shoes from Wizard of Oz? This is, as you can tell, the one that dried matte. It didn't take all that long, either.
I really do like Arianna, but she never did go full matte for me. This polish is more blue-toned than Oswin... and there's a squishy jelly quality about it. It's really odd. It's not a typical squishy looking jelly, but it's not exactly matte or shiny, either. This makes it very unique.
Now Noir didn't get a bit matte. Not even at all. There's red hexes in this purple base, and they stand out - but nothing is matte. It honestly looks like a purple jelly polish with red glitter. Not that that is a bad thing - it certainly looks pretty! :)
I'm definitely all about Oswin. I think that polish is just stunningly gorgeous. Will you be picking any of them up? You can order these for $10 each or all 3 for $30 on the Zoya website.
