Today I’m wearing Zoya PixieDust Carter. Purple is my favorite color, and this is a very nice shade of it.
Some of the cons of the PixieDust polishes are:
- They start to chip fairly soon compared to normal polishes
- You’re not supposed to use a base and top coat with them (though you can if you’d like)
- The edges are a little harder to clean up and sometimes look a little rough
- Makeup and food might lay in the texture and look dirty (I work at a bakery and powdered sugar doesn’t agree with the polish)
Some pros are:
- You can fill in the chips easily and you can’t tell the difference
- They have a unique texture that gets a lot of compliments
- There is a large selection of colors already
- They work with water marbling! (as seen in my last post)
- If used with a top coat there is no loss of sparkle
- There are a lot of awesome patterns and looks you can do with the PixieDust colors. Mix & match with striping tape, regular polishes, other PixieDust colors, etc.
- All the colors I’ve used go on and come off very easy
Overall I love these polishes, especially Carter, despite some minor flaws. I want to get Liberty (and some others) so bad, then I’ll have all the colors of the rainbow and I can try out some special looks!
