As you can imagine given the size of my polish collection, I'm pretty well known at the beauty supply places around Toronto. My main source of Zoyas, Trade Secrets in the Eaton Centre, is good but they're slow on getting the new stuff. It's gotten to the point where I hassle the nice manager man to get more and have raided his stock even before it gets to the shelves. Anyway, I was super excited about the Zoya Magical Pixie Dusts polishes cos you can't lose with holo + texture. Turns out you kinda can...
This is actually the third time I've tried the three Magical Pixie Dust's Cosmo, Vega and Lux. I first tried a gradient and then zig-zags. Both were really disappointing. All three of these polishes are oddly sheer and take about a million years to dry. It took a modified version of a top coat sandwich to get these even close to dry. For this polish I started with two coats of an appropriate Color Club Halo Hues polish then a coat of Seche Vite. This game me a base that was pretty close to the tone of these polishes. I then added a coat of the silver, then dabbed on the pink and blue. Of course I added snowflake charms, I can't stop buying things from Aliexpress and these seemed appropriate. Once it dries it does wear well, so there's that I guess. And sparkly.
The Verdict: I like how these come out, especially with the snowflakes. I just wish these polishes dried faster and kept the same strength of colour you see in the bottle. Whatever, it's different so ultimately I support it.
