Okay! You win! I finally understand the textured polish trend! When OPI started releasing their Liquid Sand polishes – I just didn’t get it. I’ve always hated having bumpy nails and the idea of doing it on purpose? EEK! So I passed on those. But then…. I saw Zoya’s Pixie Dust promos… and knew right away if I was going to give this trend a shot – it would be with Zoya’s Nyx. Fast forward a few weeks and I’ve tried it, and I’m a little bit in love with it…
What won me over? There is SO much sparkle! When I look at my nails I think of gum drops or a glittery winter wonderland – this polish is just so pretty. Zoya describes Nyx as: a perfect periwinkle with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula. I’ll go with that! Periwinkle sugared sparkle is spot on!
I love this polish so much that I actually want to go back and pick up a few more Zoya Pixie Dust polishes and maybe even venture into OPI’s Liquid Sand land… It was easy to apply – I used 3 coats – and it dried pretty quickly. It did need a bit more dry time than other matte polishes I’ve tried but the wear was worth it. These swatches are 3 days in and going strong – I’m SO impressed.
Two very sugary & sparkly thumbs up from me!! Also, anytime I look at my hands I get this song stuck in my head… flashback! I’ve included a few more pictures for your viewing pleasure – enjoy! What do you think of the Liquid Sand/Pixie Dust/Textured finish?
Extra sparkly in the sun!
