Zoya Chyna


My first textured polish post! I really didn't know what to make of all of the promo pictures from different companies touting their upcoming textured collections. It just seemed strange. I have to say the Zoya Pixie Dust Collection has completely won me over!


Here's what Zoya has to say about these polishes.
Infused with magic and wonder! The latest "must-have" nail polish finish - textured, matte and sparkling! This newly developed formula is sure to captivate with a magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other. The color experts at Zoya have created six, long-wearing stunners for the introduction of this enchanting look.

IMPORTANT Pixie Dust Application Information - Do not use a base coat or top coat. Apply 1-3 (for full coverage) thin coats of polish. Allow product to dry down completely matte in between layers for full textured effect. The Pixie Dust textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte. Once dry, the textured finish is long lasting, matte and ultra-glittery!

I tried Zoya Chyna first & followed the above instructions, no base coat or top coat. Application is very easy as long as you stick with thin coats & make sure to let them dry completely before adding another. Otherwise you'll have some dragging like with most matte polishes. I only needed two coats for full coverage.

Chyna is the first polish I've used in some time that had me mesmerized by nails. So unique & drop dead gorgeous! I took tons of pictures but I wasn't able to capture the beautiful sparkle like I wanted.
 
 
 
 
I wanted to see how well these wore without base or topcoat & I'm pleasantly surprised to say that this lasted four days with no chips. I never keep my nails the same for that long but I just loved this so much! I also noticed that these stay truly matte no matter how much lotion I applied unlike regular matte polishes. An all around stunner & new favorite. Even my boyfriend Will loves it & is sporting it on his toes right now!

Thanks for reading!
