Last January I discovered I loved glitter. Then came February and I discovered I loved pink on my nails. March came and I went green. Then on April I went back to pink with a lovely fuchsia from Nubar.Now for May I had been pondering on getting some glitter again and lo and behold I discovered ZOYA Pixie Dust “Arabella”. It has a wonderful textured finish. There were many firsts for me with this experience. It was my first time trying out ZOYA nail polish. It was my first time trying out textured nail polish. And it was my first time wearing nail polish without a top coat. Turns out wearing this nail polish is something totally different. First of all, you don’t need a base-coat. Just file and prep your nails with some primer. The texture and polish formula adheres to the nail as if you applied a rubberized base-coat. There is also no need for a top coat unless you want a glossy finish which eventually kills the textured effect. I personally do not like crackle textured nail polish finishes, but this texture I absolutely fell in love with.
The color is a purple base with saturated bright pink glitter. This is a very intriguing nail polish. You won't grow tired of staring at it, it has a wow factor to it. Pixie dust comes in a variety of colors and I have already picked 5 different shades. I would label “Arabella” as a “superglam”. It is very hard to dress it down. I mean you can wear it with anything you want, but It screams red carpet, it would be perfect for prom. Just two coats will do just fine for full coverage.
