Zoya Fall 2014 Ultra PixieDust Collection Swatches & Review

Greetings! Today I wanted to show you the third Fall collection from Zoya, this one is a trio called the Ultra PixieDusts! They are texture polishes that are sort of a mix between their regular PixieDust texture and their Magical PixieDusts. They have that fine textured micro glitter that regular PixieDusts have and small, medium, and large matte hex glitters. All of these swatches are done with no base or top coat, as directed.

Oswin is a rich ruby red that dries down completely matte. This reminds me of Dorothy's ruby slippers! So pretty. I found the formula very easy to use. I painted on three thin coats, waiting for each layer to completely dry in between.

Noir has a dark plum base with red magenta glitters. This one stayed very jelly-like though, and I waited quite a lot of time for it to dry in between coats. It almost doesn't look like theres any of the super micro texture beads in this one. Hmm, I think I would like it more if it had a completely matte finish. Thinner than Oswin, three coats.

Arianna is a slightly darker, cooler wine red than Oswin. This one also dried semi-jelly and not matte, but not as gummy looking as Noir. I like this color but I think it's almost too similar to Oswin to be released in the same collection. This had a thinner formula as well, I used three coats here.

So I have heard that the consumer bought versions of these all dry down totally matte, so the two non-mattes might've been part of a problem batch. I'm not positive on that, of course I can't say for sure. I just know that I followed the exact application method that Zoya recommends and two of them didn't dry the way I'm assuming they were meant to. Either way, I think you'll either be into these Ultra PixieDusts or you won't. I think I prefer the Magical PixieDusts the best, but I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority haha.

You can purchase these now from the Zoya website for $10 each. What do you think of these? If you have them, did yours dry totally matte? If you only could pick one of the three, which shade would you pick? Thanks for stopping by :)
