Zoya Winter/Holiday 2014 Wishes Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Tonight I have the Zoya Wishes Collection for Winter/Holiday 2014 to show you!  They mixed things up a bit and instead of a collection of PixieDusts and a collection of cremes/shimmers/etc, Zoya mixed it up with 3 PixieDusts and 3 standard shades.

Let’s start with the PixieDusts!  All 3 are Magical PixieDusts which is the newest of the PixieDust types.



Thea is a deep amethyst matte-like jelly base packed with silver holographic micro glitter and medium holographic hex glitters.  I used 2 coats for these photos.  The last photo will show Thea with top coat.

Imogen is a black matte jelly like base packed with silver holographic micro glitter and medium holographic hex glitters.  I used 2 coats for these photos and the last photo will show Imogen with top coat.

Nori is a sapphire blue matte jelly base with silver holographic micro glitter and medium hex glitter.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.  The last photo will show Nori with top coat.

Haven is my favorite from the entire collection!  This is a beautiful deep plum with a fine shimmer throughout. I used 2 coats for these photos, no top coat.

Prim is an medium icy blue metallic.  Light brush stokes are visible, but overall the color is really pretty. I used 2 coats for these photos, no top coat.

Willa is an onyx black creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.  This is a great black base and I will be using it quite a bit!

Overall, I do like this collection but I’m not completely in love with it.  I don’t think I’ve completely grasped Magical PixieDusts quite yet and it’s holding me back.  I do love textures, but the original PixieDusts are still my favorite and a part of me is still holding onto the love of those and hoping that the original PixieDust collection is expanded at some point.  The Magical PixieDusts are pretty and they don’t have that gritty texture of the other PixieDusts, and while I like them, I don’t love them.

Haven was my favorite shade by far and definitely my top pick from the 6 shades in the Wishes Collection!

Application wise, I had no issues other than some brush strokes in Prim, which is common for metallic shades for the most part.


Willa, Prim & Haven: $9.00 each

Nori, Thea & Imogen: $10.00 each

Your swatches are gorgeous. I’m not on board with the magical pixies either – they look much better with topcoat than they do as textureds.

Haven is hands down the prettiest of this collex. Your swatches are impeccable but I’m just not feelin it for the Magical Pixies either.

I love Willa!! Beautiful swatches!

Cheyenne December 17, 2014 - 9:18 am

Not a fan of the pixie glitters either. Texture just isn’t my thing. Your swatches of them are still beautiful though! :)

I’m pretty sure I need Willa – it seems so useful!

I loved this collection. I would say Thea and Haven are my favorite.

Jessica December 17, 2014 - 11:10 am

I adore how Haven looks on you!

Marisa - Hey, Darling Polish December 17, 2014 - 5:30 pm

Your swatches of these look great! I really like the Magical PixieDusts when they have topcoat over them!

Shelby Lou Nails December 17, 2014 - 6:02 pm

I loved these Pixies because I can’t stand the sandy texture teehee. You made them all look gorgeous though!

Even though they are beautiful I’m just not that into the Pixie Dust’s anymore. Prim is my favorite from this collection.

Nicole C December 17, 2014 - 7:52 pm

I agree with you – Haven is definitely the winner of the collection. And I think the Magical Pixies are my least favorite Pixies. I also prefer the original PixieDusts!

I didn’t care for the pixies in this collection sadly. But Haven & Prim are winners!

Deborah December 18, 2014 - 11:41 am

YES to Prim! I’m just head over heels in love with that shade.

Simona December 18, 2014 - 12:05 pm

I agree with you about Haven, too, definitely the star of the collection!

Valesha from Peachy Polish December 18, 2014 - 12:44 pm

Such pretty colors! I still love Haven the most!

Andrea December 18, 2014 - 4:06 pm

I love textures, but these definitely look better with top coat.

Jenny Gilmore December 18, 2014 - 10:32 pm

Great swatches! Yeah, these Magical Pixies look nice with topcoat, but I don’t love them in their intended state.

The new Pixies are gorgeous, but I agree, for a textured polish I preferred the original pixies…
