Zoya Vespa Nails


**all items purchased by me
Today I've got a Spring-y looking mani to show.  This is also the polish that caused me to fall in love with Zoya's PixieDust polishes and go back and get the rest of the collection.

This is 3 coats of Zoya Vespa - no base coat or top coat.  3 coats is what is recommended on Zoya's website for all the PixieDust polishes so I followed directions/recommendations. I would say that with Vespa, 3 coats is needed as it is on the sheer-er side.


I loved the way this looked and felt on the nails.  Vespa is a pretty mint/sea-foam green with little silvery shimmers sprinkled throughout to give some more interest.  This felt like I had gotten my nails wet and stuck them in a bowl of sugar and the sugar had dried on my nails.  All of the particles are the same size.  Definitely not sharp or anything that would get caught or snagged on something.

My only issue with Vespa was that by the next day, I had a chip on one of my nails already.  Right now I don't remember if I hit it on something (or was opening a new can of food for Kitty) or what.  So that was a little disappointing.  And this definitely did not last through cleaning.  But as I'm writing this, I've got a different PixieDust on and it is lasting much better (except for my thumb but I know what happened there that caused the chips).

IMPORTANT PixieDust Application:

Do not use a base coat or top coat.
Apply 1-3 (for full coverage) thin coats of polish.
Allow product to dry completely in between layers.
I am definitely looking forward to the next release of the PixieDust line - 6 new (bright) colors are coming!  I'm sure that as soon as I see them in the store, I'll be picking them up.

Did you get any of the Zoya PixieDust polishes?  Do textured polishes appeal to you?
