WOW, it’s been a LONG time since I’ve blogged!! I am so sorry I’ve M.I.A – no excuses though all my other social medias has kept me busy along with real life issues. Today I have my birthday manicure to share with all of you – I figured it was a good/easy way to get back into the swing of blogging. I turned 32 on Feb 8th this year…yeah hard to believe I’m 32!! I wore two manicures on my birthday one for day and the other for night; this one I’m sharing is the one I wore for night 🙂
Zoya ‘Liberty’ – is gorgeous mermaid-teal-aquamarine blue Pixie Dust from the Sunshine 2013 Summer Pixie Dust collection. This reminds me of Zoya Charla just in a Pixie Dust finish. I loved this one on my nails and it’s so sad that this was the first time wearing it since purchasing it back in 2013! I’ve got too many unswatched polishes in my collection 😦
The formula was amazing, opaque on two coats but I noticed it took a long time to dry – I ended up using Super Chic Lacquer Liquid Marvel Top Coat for a rapid dry finish and that’s what saved this manicure. I loved it without a top coat but the dry time was too much – after Zoya Chita I am pretty spoiled with fast drying textured Pixie Dusts so I was a little disappointed in the length of time it took to dry.
I LOVE the sparkle in this polish though and it really comes to life in sunlight! One of the biggest negatives regarding this polish is that it stains BUT I love the colour so much I’ll bare it and wear a base coat the next time I reach for it. Lastly, Zoya is unfortunately discontinuing their Pixie Dust line – once they’re all sold out they’re GONE forever! And while the textured trend is some what over I still enjoy wearing it as a change from the regular polish formulas.
