Zoya Magical Pixie Swatches!

 *Sent for review*

Today I have the holo glitter goodness of the new Zoya Magical Pixie Dust polishes to show you. These are texture polishes, like the Zoya PixieDusts, but with larger glitter particles and with both small and large holo glitter added in as well. First up is the sparkling silver Zoya Cosmo. The holo glitter in this really throws rainbows all over the place, it was kind of freaking out my camera!

This is two coats of Cosmo. It covered easily and was pretty easy to apply. The formula feels thicker than the usual PixieDust formula, but that didn't make it hard to use at all.

Below is one coat of Gelous over Cosmo. With one coat of Gelous, it felt mostly smooth to the touch and I think the shiny top coat really brings out the sparkle.

Zoya Vega is a medium blue texture with large and smaller holo glitter. I really love the holo glitter in these! I love holo glitter in anything though, haha!

This is also two coats. It had good coverage at two coats, with the same slightly thicker feeling formula as Cosmo.

This picture below is Vega with one coat of Gelous. I like this one better without top coat I think, but it's very pretty both ways!

Finally, the lovely Zoya Lux is a light pink texture with the same mix of holo glitters as Cosmo and Vega. I think Lux was a little smoother than the other two in this collection, but still packs the same glittery punch. Somehow the particles felt smaller on the nail, but they look the same as the others, so maybe I'm imagining it!

This is three coats of Lux. It's a lighter pink, so I felt the coverage was better at three coats myself. Good application and it was a bit thinner than the other two.

Below is one coat of Gelous over Lux. It's gorgeous this way too!

I really love all three of these Magical Pixies. I always love holo glitter and as you already know, I love textures. They all dry nice and quickly and will be in my regular rotation for when I need a super fast mani. I do think they will be kind of a matter of personal opinion. I can see some people not liking the larger glitter in these and the added texture. They do seem to smooth out well with top coat though. What do you think of the Magical Pixies?

Zoya Magical Pixie Dusts are available now on zoya.com.
