Zoya Fall 2013 PixieDust Collection Swatches and Review

Zoya’s Fall 2013 PixieDusts have released and I couldn’t wait to get to swatching them!  Feels like we JUST got into Summer colors, but it is that time again for the Fall!

The Fall PixieDusts bring us a mix of some darker shades as well as some brighter ones, but all 6 are really gorgeous.  I have some instant favorites (I didn’t even need to put them on to know they would be favorites either) and I can’t say I was disappointed with any of the Fall colors in this collection.

Take a look!

Carter:

Carter is my top pick for the collection!  A gorgeous dark purple with vivid pink sparkle within.  2 coats and no top coat. I’m a purple fanatic, so of course this one was my #1!

Tomoko:

My second top pick!  A beautiful champagne shade with a bling effect.  I wore this one to a birthday party I took my son to on Friday and it got a TON of compliments from the other mommies.  In the sunlight it’s AMAZING.  I only needed 2 coats.

Arabella:

Arabella is a rich fuchsia texture polish.  I actually almost had to buy a replacement of this baby.  I thought I screwed the lid on after swatching and went to grab the lid to take the picture and SURPRISE! it wasn’t screwed on.  I fumbled it and it dropped, but luckily – not a drop spilled.  Again, 2 coats, perfect application.

Dhara:

Dhara is the bright fiery orange with pops of gold sparkle.  2 coats of perfection!

Sunshine:

20130721-221831.jpg

I didn’t find this name to fit the polish.  When I hear the name Sunshine for a polish I think a bright, vivid orange or yellow.  Sunshine is a navy blue with silver sparkle.  Definitely a Fall shade!  This was almost a 1 coat polish!  I used 2 coats, but if in a hurry, I probably could have pulled off only 1 coat.

Chita:

20130721-221818.jpg

Chita was a surprise favorite!  I don’t tend to care for greens, but this is a beautiful forest green with silver sparkle.  Another gorgeous Fall shade, and this one was also close to being a 1 coat polish, although I did use 2 coats for this photo.

Overall, another stunning collection from Zoya!  All 6 were done in 2 coats.  If you aren’t into textures yet (I am noticing more and more people warming up to them) then add a thick top coat and you still get a wonderfully sparkly polish.

My top picks?  Carter, Tomoko and Chita!

Zoya PixieDusts retail for $9.00 each, or buy the full set for $54.00 (which still breaks down to 9 each, but shipping would be free)

Thinking of purchasing?  Zoya has a program called Share the Love!  If you click on the following link and set up a new account – you get a FREE polish (Just pay shipping!).. add a second polish and shipping is free PLUS the first polish is free!  I do get points based on my Share the Love link, which I generally flip and hold giveaways to spend the points.  You get a free polish, I get 100 points.

Here is my Share the Love Link:  https://www.artofbeauty.com/rd/01859C03

Have you grabbed any of the Fall PixieDusts yet?  Are you planning on it?  I’d love to hear about it!
