Today, we continue on with my lovefest swatches of the Zoya Fall 2013 PixieDust collection. Do not adjust your monitor, Zoya Sunshine is really that awesome. Zoya calls this gem a "Van Gogh navy blue". It is a navy, but it's definitely not as deep as most navy blue polishes usually are. It's almost like a bright navy and I love that. It has silver sparkles in it too, making it look like a night sky with stars. If you were thinking this would be similar to Zoya Liberty, it is definitely very different. Liberty is a bright cornflower/pool like blue, while Sunshine is much deeper, like ink rinse denim.


Sunshine is basically a one-coater. I wasn't mentally prepared for that, so I ended up doing two coats, but if you apply it right it can absolutely be full coverage in one coat. Even better for my lazy manis! I would, however, wear a base coat with this when wearing it as a full mani. I think it could stain otherwise. It was a dream to apply too, really excellent!


Here is Sunshine with one coat of Gelous. I think it actually needs two coats to be totally smooth and glossy.



Base: none
Color: three coats Zoya Tomoko
Top: none (unless otherwise indicated)
Application: average (out of poor, average, good, excellent)

Zoya Tomoko is a pretty white gold matte sparkle. Zoya calls it a "champagne silver", but it definitely is a little too gold to really be called a silver. It's not at all yellow gold, but still has a warm-ish tone. This is going to be great for the holidays!! (Listen to me talking about the holidays in July... Yikes!)


Tomoko is by far the sheerest polish in this collection. This is three pretty thick coats, if you do very thin coats you will need four or even five. It was pretty easy to apply, but I rated it as average due to the sheerness. I love the color, but I do wish it was more opaque, especially since Zoya rates it as a 4 out of 5 for color intensity. Luckily, it still dries quickly, so your 4 coats won't take that long.


Tomoko looks very pretty with a coat of Gelous. This is the only polish in this collection that I actually almost prefer glossy.



Base: none
Color: two coats Zoya Chita
Top: none (unless otherwise indicated)
Application: excellent (out of poor, average, good, excellent)

I have been waiting for a PixieDust just like Zoya Chita!!! A forest green matte with silver sparkles is definitely a polish right up my alley! There are plenty of sparkles in this one too, they didn't skimp on the bling. I am a huge fan of forest green for fall too. I do feel like we need some more green textures around, so thank you Zoya!


And speaking of thank you Zoya, Chita is almost a one coater! I used two coats for these pictures, but I think you could do one careful coat. Application was great and the formula is that lovely not thick, not thin consistency. I am really in love with this one!


Like Sunshine, I think Chita actually might need two coats of Gelous to get smooth. I only used one and it looks a bit bumpy. I really like it so much better without top coat though, so for me personally, this doesn't bother me.


After reviewing this whole collection, I can honestly tell you that there isn't a color here that I don't LOVE! If I had to choose a least favorite, I would pick Tomoko just for the sheerness, but I do really like the color of Tomoko. My absolute favorite of the collection is Carter, the stunning purple with pink sparkles. If you're into the texture trend, I definitely advise you to get several of these! If you're not into the texture trend, I would advise you to try one, because you might discover you actually like them!

So weird about Tomoko. Mine was perfection (and no VNL) with two, normal thickness coats.

I know xasperadastra!! It's amazing! I'm in love!

Good to know Sara, maybe I got an off bottle? The others were so pigmented, and it just seemed more watery and not like the rest. Love the color though!

These are really pretty!

I guess we all apply polish differently. I also didn't have any streaking with OPI Budapest, even though it seems like the rest of the world did. And I always have problems with colors no one else does, haha!

I like them a lot TikiBarbie! Which ones do you want?

Sara, that is definitely true. One person's thick coat could be another's regular coat, etc. I feel like I usually tend on the thicker side of coats because I want to just get the polish on fast LOL! But I will definitely give Tomoko another chance and see if I was just having a weird application moment!
