Zoya PixieDust - Part One

I'm really excited to share three of the six polishes from Zoya's PixieDust collection with you.  The colors are *Vespa, *Nyx and *London.  First up, the pics:

Zoya calls this the PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula and describes each color as follows:
Zoya Nail Polish in Vespa can be best described as a Mint Kiss with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

Zoya Nail Polish in Nyx can be best described as a perfect periwinkle with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

Zoya Nail Polish in London can be best described as a fog gray with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

These polishes were designed to be worn without base or top coat (which I should have noted before application.  I used base for the above pics.)  They recommend using anywhere from one to three thin coats (I used two).  

The first thing I want to mention is that I am NOT a fan of "textured" finishes in most instances.  I like my polish smooth as a baby's bottom.  However, the texture of these polishes didn't bother me in the slightest.  Actually, I've found myself rubbing my nails quite a bit and really enjoying the unique "sugared" feel of the finish.  

These polishes sparkle beautifully and the colors are fabulous.  I did find my nails chipping on the third day of wear, kind of a bummer, but this could be because I used base coat.  Not quite sure but I will apply according to Zoya's recommendations for the remaining three polishes in this collection.  Overall, I am pleasantly surprised by how much I love this collection.
