Cirque Colors The Metropolis Collection June 2015 Swatches & Review

Hey kids! I've been kinda crazy busy and the weather has been super rainy so I haven't gotten to swatch anything new in a few weeks. :P I did get a teeny bit of sun on Monday though, so I was able to get a few photos done! I have the two new polishes from Cirque Colors, their June shades for the Metropolis collection, a collection of crèmes they add to with new colors every month.

This color is called Golightly, a robin's egg blue crème named after my all time favorite movie character, Holly Golightly from the movie Breakfast At Tiffany's. This is such an iconic, classic color and it's perfect for this New York company's New York themed collection. :) Two easy, perfect coats.

And this shade is called Nolita Lolita, a bright medium pink crème. I find this to be a perfect kind of "daily" pink, not too loud, not too soft, just cute and feminine enough to wear anytime. I had a bit of streaking with this on the second coat, so I used three to even it out.

These will be released on June 1st for $13 on CirqueColors.com. What do you think of these two classic crèmes? Are you more of a blue or a pink person? I'm both!

Love ya!

Zoya PixieDust Fall 2013 Collection Swatches & Review

Hello and welcome :) Today is the last of my PixieDust posts that I never got around to putting up the year they came out. This is the Fall 2013 collection from Zoya, six textured polishes called PixieDusts, now discontinued. This collection might be my favorite of them all so let's take a look at the pretties!

Arabella is described by Zoya as fuchsia, but I think it's more magenta with fuchsia and silver glitter accents. This is different than Miranda from the summer PixieDust collection because of the metallic edge of the glitter. It doesn't dry as "sugary" as some of the other pixiedusts but that's ok. Two coats, very opaque.

Next is fan favorite Carter, which I literally cannot believe I haven't worn before. This is a blackened royal purple texture with pink glitter bits. I LIVE. Two coats.

Chita you've seen from me here, and I still love it. It's a fantastic pine tree green with silver glitter. This is very opaque, I only needed ONE coat. A little thick but not difficult to use. Dries incredibly sugary.
Zoya Chita PixieDust

This gal is named Dhara, a faboosh shade of orange with gold glitter. It's darker than the tangerine of Beatrix from summer and not as coral as Destiny, so she owns her place in the PixieDust family. I love oranges, so natch I love this. Two coats.

Sunshine is the name of this gorgeous americana blue texture with silver shimmer. I don't get that name with this color, but it's of little importance because this is such a winner. She is creamy like Chita, but thinner and less glitter dense. This is two coats.
Zoya Sunshine PixieDust

And last is Tomoko, a stunning blingy pale champagne silvery gold texture. It's a bit sheer because I think it might have a clear base rather than a colored one like the others, or just a much lighter one. This is two coats, but I probably should've used three.

As I've said before, since these are discontinued, Zoya is not making any more of them. The Zoya website has them up for sale at the time I am posting this for $10 each, so if you want them, do not hesitate because they won't be there forever. Did you like this little trip down memory lane with the PixieDusts? I love them and am sad they aren't making more colors, this brand really did the texture thing right.

Laters gators!

Zoya PixieDust Summer 2013 Collection Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! I posted about the Zoya PixieDust premiere collection the other day, so I'm continuing with the Summer 2013 collection! These are six textured glitters that are still available on the Zoya website, but the PixieDust line is discontinued so they won't be making any more. When they are sold out they are gone! Gotta grab 'em all while they're there!

First is Beatrix, a tangerine orange texture polish with gold glitter. The name Beatrix always reminds me of the Bride character in the Kill Bill movies, which I love. This is so bright and happy, just perfect for summer. I used two coats.

Destiny is a hot orangey coral texture with sugary looking bits and gold glitter. Oh my. This is so gorgeous and it makes me instantly happy to look at it. The base is kinda jelly-ish so it looks like candy! Two coats.
Zoya Destiny

Next is Liberty, a happy bright blue with silver glitter. The base on this one is very jellyish. A little more sheer than the others but I still only needed two coats. I was afraid this would stain but it didn't on me.
Zoya Liberty PixieDust

Miranda is described as a rose, it leans kinda dark strawberry for me with silver glitter. This is lovely and looks almost sophisticated. Two coats here as well.

Buckle your seatbelts cuz here comes Solange! It is a gold metallic foil sparkle texture. This is supposed to have a special exclusive to Zoya gold pigment in it, it's stunning. This is a yellow gold, but it leans cool. Two coats of bling!
Zoya Solange PixieDust

Stevie is a pale muted lilac with the sugary silver sparkle texture look. This is more of a crème base than jelly, more like the ones in the first PixieDust collection. I think this taffy pinky purple is kinda unique when it comes to textures so I really like it. Two coats for full opacity.
Zoya Stevie PixieDust

You can get these, for the time being, at Zoya.com for $10 each. What do you think of these shades? Did you get any of them when they came out? If you didn't, which one would you choose now? I still enjoy the texture trend, so these are still on my radar :)

Have a great Memorial Day weekend if you're in the US, if you're not have a great regular weekend!
