Zoya ‘Miranda’

Hi everyone, today I have a new polish from Zoya’s Summer 2013 Pixie Dust Collection. Textured nails is definitely the trend of 2013 and I quite welcome it because I was NOT a Shatter nail polish fan (I do own two Shatter polishes and I am not a fan of them at all). Zoya is one of my favourite brands & they truly impressed me with their Pixie Dust line – I have to give them credit for the amazing sparkle/glitter/”pixie” effect when this polish dries & they named this finish aptly.

Zoya Miranda 006Zoya ‘Miranda’ – is a mid tone pink polish with berry undertones with silver glitter particles set in their Pixie Dust formulation. This is part of their Summer 2013 Pixie Dust collection and to me was the odd ball out of all the colours which is why I wore this one first. And because I am still in a pink polish mood these days.

You can really see the silver glitter shining through in this photo – in sunlight it literally looks like ‘pink diamonds’ which reminds me of Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ song lol. This is two coats of polish to achieve an opaque manicure & one of the best features of the Pixie Dust polishes is you do not have to wear a base coat (which Zoya fairies recommend to achieve the best results)!! While it doesn’t require a base coat it does take a little longer to dry than most polishes so you do have to be patient with these Pixie Dust polishes.

While it does take longer than average to dry, once it dries it lasts about ONE full week without chipping!! And being a textured polish it does have a gritty feeling on the nails – I found it to be a little “heavy” on the nails but I will give it points for making my nails feel strengthen in some way. These polishes look more beautiful in sunlight than indoors as well but if you are looking for something new in the nail polish world I would give this a try!! Overall, I am really intrigued by these Pixie polishes & while I am not a trend follower, these textured polishes are growing on me. And if you are pink nail polish lover – I would get this polish because you may regret missing out on it in the future.

    1. Have you seen their new Fall 2013 Press release for their Fall Pixie Dusts?? oh my goodness they all look gorgeous!! Even though they take long to dry i kinda don’t mind bc they do last long =)

  1. I have Zoya pixie in Destiny! I would say I do like them…. But they do take longer to dry tgan Opi liquid sands…. Which is kinda a bummer and these due tend to dry out the nail bed! I recommend a base coat! πŸ™‚

    1. Ohh i love Destiny as well! Have you tried Solange? would look gorgeous on you!! they’re my favourites from the collection. I haven’t tried OPI liquid sands as of yet…might grab one soon to compare formulas.
