Zoya MagicalPixie 2.0 – Summer 2014

Zoya MagicalPixie 2.0 – Summer 2014 0

in addition to the "Tickled & Bubbly" collections, Zoya has also introduced a brand new line of their highly popular matte glitter  MagicalPixies for Summer 2014, deemed- "2.0". Although the collection is small, only 3 shades, it does pack quite a punch!

- Bar: a sandy nude beige with holographic silver glitter.

- Ginni: a Barbie pink with holographic silver glitter.

- Arlo: a purple/pink magenta with holographic silver glitter.

Like all MagicalPixies, these do not require a base or a top coat, and covered completely and beautifully in 2 coats.  My personal favorite of the 3 is Bar, it's beyond stunning!!

Zoya “Tickled & Bubbly” Collections- Summer 2014

Zoya “Tickled & Bubbly” Collections- Summer 2014 0

The folks at Zoya have introduced a few new polish collections for summer 2014, 3 to be exact.  The first collections up for review are the "Tickled" & "Bubbly" collections, both creams and glittery metallics to pacify even the pickiest of polish lovers.

Tickled- is comprised of 6 opaque cream colors with a summer flare.

- Rocha: a bright coral-y red.

- Wendy: a dark pink with red undertones.

- Kitridge: a bright bubble gum pink.

- Rooney: a hot magenta pink.

- Ling: a deep dusty blue.

- Tilda: a grass green.

The formula was quite excellent on all of these, each covered beautifully in 2 thin coats.  My personal favorites are Rocha & Wendy.

Bubbly- is made up on 6 semi- sheer glittery metallic shades that can be used either on their own, or to complement the colors in the Tickled collection.

- Alma: a golden yellow glittery shimmer with small silver glitter flecks.

- Jesy: a tangerine orange glittery shimmer with small silver glitter flecks.

- Harper: a bright pink glittery shimmer with small silver glitter flecks.

- Binx: a darker magenta pink glittery shimmer with small silver glitter flecks.

- Muse: an ocean blue glittery shimmer with small green glitter flecks.

- Stassi: a summery light green glittery shimmer with small silver glitter flecks.

Because these are a bit sheer, they required 3 coats for full opacity.  They do however build up quite nicely.  My 3 favorites include: Alma, Binx, & Muse.

Zoya- Spring 2014 “Awaken”

Zoya- Spring 2014 “Awaken” 0

For Spring 2014 Zoya came out with a beautiful slightly pastel shimmery collection entitled “Awaken”. There are 6 shades in total, and they are the perfect transitional shades to the coming warm summer months.

The “Awaken” collection includes:

Dot: a pretty pale pink. Was initially released for fashion designer Zang Toi’s SS 2014 collection.

Brooklyn: a metallic sun kissed yellow gold. As with most metallic polishes, I found the formula to be a little streaky, so I would recommend using a ridge filler as a base coat.

Cole: a creamy peach. Was initially released during New York Fashion Week for Peter Som’s SS14 collection.

Dillon: a shimmering light sea foam minty green.

Rebel: a shimmering azure blue.

Hudson: a shimmering orchid purple.

Each coat shown here was 2 coats for full opactiy.

Each shade retails for $9

For Spring 2014, Zoya introduced a brand new beautiful line to their already popular PixieDust textured polishes, the Magical PixieDust collection.  What sets this collection apart from Zoya’s conventional matte textured glitter polishes, is these are infused with my personal favorite- large holographic glitter particles.  These bad boys sparkle and shine like no ones business, and I am a huge fan. The 3 shades in this initial collection include: Cosmo: a silver, with holographic glitter infused. My personal favorite in this collection.  I can’t get enough of this particular shade!! Vega: a light blue, with holographic glitter infused. Lux: a baby pink, with holographic glitter infused. (all swatches shown here were 2 coats for full opacity, and NO Base or Top coat, as recommended by Zoya.) Each shade retails for $10.
