Zoya PixieDust Spring 2013 Collection Swatches & Review

Hey there! I've got a different kind of Throwback Thursday post for you today. Since Zoya has discontinued their PixieDust line, I thought it was high time that I should put up swatches for them! Late 2012-early 2014 were kinda hard years for me so I was absent from my blog way more than I had ever intended, and that meant a lot of collections got left out :( I apologize to anyone who looked forward to these swatches and was disappointed when I didn't post them around the time of their release, but I hope you will enjoy them now even though they are quite tardy.

When I say discontinued, I mean that Zoya announced they are no longer making these textured polishes back in December 2014, but it looks like they are still available (except one) for purchase on their website. I loved these "regular" textured finish PixieDusts, and their special editions like the Magical PixieDusts and the Ultra PixieDusts which actually made it to my blog already, so I'm sad they aren't making any more. If you want these, you should grab them up soon, I'm not sure when they will be out of stock for good.

First we have Chyna, a ruby slipper red texture polish with red glitter. This had excellent pigment and opacity. I used this polish in this nail art manicure I did for a guest post on my friend Leslie's blog a few years ago and I just love it. These all dry to a matte, gritty textured finish; all swatches are without top coat.

Dahlia is a black texture polish with silver glitter bits. This is less of a jelly consistency than Chyna was. A little thick but easy to apply, two coats.

Next is Godiva, a soft beige nude texture with silver glitter grains. This was a showstopper when it first came on the scene, pretty unique at the time. I think it's so elegant! This is two coats, but you may need three depending on your application style as it's a little thin and not as pigmented as the darker shades.

London is a rainy day grey texture with silver glitter. This name is spot on, it totally makes me think of London skies! This one is unfortunately the only one I can't find on Zoya's website :( so if you are lusting after it you might try Ebay. Two coats.

Here we have Nyx, a periwinkle denim blue texture polish with icy silver glitter. This is a fan favorite and for good reason, it's really lovely! A little on the sheer side, but I only needed two coats.

Vespa is last in this premiere collection, it's a light mint green texture with silver shimmer. I showed you this back in a manicure post I did in 2013 as an accent nail, which texture polishes are great for in my opinion. I love this shade, it reminds me of a spring meadow! Another one that's a bit more sheer, but only two coats.

Chyna is probably my favorite of these just because of the coordinating colored glitter, it just gives it something extra I think. These are available for purchase on Zoya's website for $10 each, at least they are for now. Like I mentioned above, they are discontinued so they won't be there forever. When they are sold out, that's it. Let me know if you will miss the PixieDusts! Or if you are over textured polishes in general, or even if you didn't like them to begin with haha. Or any other opinion at all :)

Thanks for looking!
