For a fresh take on color that adds indulgent texture without a labor-intensive process, Zoya Nail Polish has paired the glam of glitter with a velvety matte finish they’re calling PixieDust.
PixieDust allows gals on the go to easily add a little touch of magic to their mani. To get that signature “sugared” look that PixieDust boasts, the Zoya site features a word of advice on the application of the polish, heeding users to “not use a base coat or top coat. Apply 1-3 (for full coverage) thin coats of polish. Allow product to dry down completely matte in between layers for full textured effect. The PixieDust textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte. Once dry, the textured finish is long-lasting, matte and ultra-glittery!” They’re actually asking us to skip the top and base coats! What more could a girl ask for than flash without the fuss?
Currently available in six select shades (though Spring/Summer swatches have been announced!), the line comes in a luscious host of hues to compliment any look. Far from going gothic, dazzlingly dark Dahlia is a bewitching black. Chyna captures the ruby hues of the Orient with an adventurous crimson color. Ladylike Godiva is a nude that’s far from neutral, thanks to visually stimulating texture and tons of twinkle that the PixieDust finish finesses. With all the cutting-edge chic of its vehicular counterpart, vivacious Vespa is a hip mint. Dusting off plain periwinkle, Nyx revives the pale blue with cool undertones and lots of luster. Foggy London [pictured] is the ideal take on a neutral– a smokey grey made glamorous with glimmer, and the PixieDust matte finish keeps the shimmer graceful looking instead of grade school.
In addition to being a famously female-fronted company, Zoya‘s durable coat and dynamic colors are five-free: formulated without toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).
