Hard Candy - bity blue and glitter jam

Hey, hey, dear readers!  Today I'd like to share a few Hard Candy polishes, hot off the presses.  First up, the pics:

Two coats of bity blue

Same as above with one coat of glitter jam added on ring finger

*bity blue (which, like all of the new Hard Candy polishes has its name written all in lowercase on the cap) is a gorgeous aquamarine blue foil.  It applied like a dream, opaque and fabulous in two easy coats.  It dried super-smooth and shiny.  I couldn't be happier with it.  I added a quick coat of *glitter jam, which is chock-full of beautiful multi-colored glitter, including blue hexagons, and dried surprisingly smooth.  

If the quality of these shades are indicative of all the new Hard Candy polishes, I can't wait to try more!

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:

Vespa on thumb and ring finger, Nyx on index finger and pinky and London on middle finger

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.
