Zoya’s Fall 2012 Pixie Dust collection

The first “pixie dust” collection released from Zoya. I am not a huge fan of these textured polishes - they can be a nice change up, but the manicures always end up looking a bit chunky. And the manicures are always a bit trickier: I either have to coat my cuticles with vaseline, to make post-mani cleanup easier, or I have to be extra careful when removing the over-applied textured polish from the skin around my nailbeds.

The colors for this were a nice mix: greyed tones, one vivid red for the rampant traditionalists. Some of the colors needed more coats for full opacity - Zoya must have gotten this complaint quite a bit, because the following collections all contained brighter colors that, if they didn’t give better coverage than the first collection, at least it wasn’t as noticeable.
