Zoya PixieDust Fall 2013 Swatches - Part One

Hi ho, kittens.  Today, I'd like to share the first two colors from Zoya's PixieDust Fall 2013 collection, *Tomoko and *Dhara.  Let's get right to the pics.
Zoya Tomoko, two coats.

Zoya Dhara, two coats

To my eye, Tomoko read as a pale gold, though their description is "a romantic champagne silver". Tomayto, tomahto.  Either way, it's a classy muted shade and a nice segway into PixieDust for the more conservative polish-wearer.

Dhara is a far more vibrant shade.  It immediately reminded me of a Crayola crayon color, red-orange or orange-red, I forget which.  As a former non-orange girl, I'm quickly being converted with shades like this.

Both colors applied like a dream and dried quickly.  I was pretty bummed that each of them were pretty chipped after only a day or two.  It seems like the previous PixieDust collections had a little better wear time but that could be my imagination.  I'm eager to track the staying power of the remaining four colors in this collection.  Regardless, I am still a huge PixieDust fan and can't wait to get the other colors swatched for you guys.

I too found Zoya's Pixie Dust to have a short nail life also, but since iline to change my nail color so often it's not an issue for me. I do love the neutrals the best though.
