Zoya PixieDust Godiva

Pin It
When all these texture polishes were announced by all the big polish makers, I was so disappointed. I thought the trend was just an excuse to make glitter polishes that dried gritty without any apologies.

Fast forward a few months, I've tried a few and I'm completely SOLD on the texture manicure!
They aren't just gritty drying glitters, they do have a special formulation that allows them to have a fine grit sandpaper finish. (which comes in handy when I have a itch that won't go away, key back of nail scratch!!!!).

Here's my favourite so far:

Zoya PixieDust Godiva

 Godiva is a sand beige with silver glitter. It's got yellow undertones so I don't recommend it to women with cool skin tones, but I adore it! It does have a slightly dirty look to it, but I love nudes!!!! The silver glitter is seriously sparkly and it applied well but needed 3 thin coats for full coverage. It could easily be layered over a matching creme though. I waited until each layer was dry before I added the next and no issues with Godiva drying properly. It wears really well too; 24 hours and no chips or wear.

With top coat:

I like the glossy look too. I used two coats of Aqua Daisy Glitter Gloss and it was perfectly glassy.

Zoya released 12 Pixie Dust polishes; six muted and six brights for summer. Have you got your eyes on any of them?

How do you feel about the texture trend?



  1. Very pretty! I like the textured polishes as long as they have some shimmer or glitter in them - the cream ones don't appeal to me at all.

    1. Thanks for always commenting TikiBarbie!!!! It always brightens my day when I see a comment from you! I feel the same way about the textures, except I've seen some photos that make a few of the nails inc leather effect and china glaze textures look really cool. Help me from buying them please!!! All my 'trend' polishes end up in the sell box within a few months!!
