Zoya Summer 2014 Magical Pixies: Bar, Ginni, Arlo!

Today I have the three brand new Magical Pixies from Zoya's Summer 2014 collection.

These Pixies are "Magical" because unlike the much finer grit of the original Pixies, these have chunkier holo particles.  Love them or leave them?  Let's see some pics!

First, group shot:

First up, this is Arlo.  Zoya describes this as a "glittering violet amethyst" in color.  My swatches show three coats and the first set has no topcoat, as instructed.  I was a little wishywashy about this color and the formula.  I feel like this set is thicker than the Spring set.  The polish was a bit harder to work with, too.  The color payoff, however, is quick sparkly.

I also wanted to see how these would look with topcoat, so I added a thin layer of topcoat for the pics below.  You'd def need another coat or even a third coat to make it smooth.

Next up, this girly pink, Ginni, is described as "pink tourmaline" in color. This is three coats, no topcoat.

And these two shots show Ginni WITH topcoat, just for comparison sake.

Last but not least, this stunning neutral is called Bar, described as "glittery nude topaz." This color is so interesting on the nail, with almost blue looking sparkle to it. This is my favorite! I think it wold be a great pedi color for summer. This is three thin coats, no topcoat.

  1. I like them! I think I obsessively stroke the textured polishes when I wear them though... that might be weird and creepy.
