Zoya Dahlia

Zoya Dahlia is another fantastic polish from the Zoya Pixie Dust Collection.

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 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. Zoya Dahlia only needs two coats for full coverage.
I'm a voracious reader & this book was an excellent read whose cover happened to look lovely with my nails.


I love Dahlia just as much as I loved Chyna from the same collection. I thought the gritty texture might bother me but it didn't at all. It looks exactly like a black sparkly sandpaper that I use sometimes for concrete projects. Not nearly as scratchy of course!
Both Chyna & Dhalia wear very well even without base or top coats & stay truly matte even after the application of hand lotion. Dahlia is another winner!

Thanks for reading!

    1. I felt exactly the same way! To be perfectly honest I don't love any of the hundreds of photos I've seen, including my own. The sparkle just doesn't come through like it does in real life. If you're curious at all, pick up Chyna or Dahlia. I don't usually go much for red & black polishes but they are my favorites from this collection.

  2. I love the sparkle the Zoya polishes have. I think they are impressing me most out of all the textured polishes coming out.
