Zoya London Nails


**all items purchased by me

I thought today would be a good day to showcase a more recent polish I had on, and of course it's a textured polish - PixieDust, in fact.  Textured polishes seem to be about the only thing I'm reaching for lately. Besides how much I love how they feel and look, they also wear pretty well on me...even better than some cremes and shimmers.

So let's see what Zoya's London PixieDust looks like on my nails, shall we?  I believe this was 2 coats, but I don't remember if I had a base coat on or not.  Lately I've been keeping either a base coat or a treatment on my nails all the time and I'll just put polish on over top (unless the base/treatment is peeling off).

London is what I would call a slightly green-based gray polish loaded with Zoya's signature uniformly textured PixieDust with its matte particles and tiny sparkles to give it more life.  Love!  I'd say that it works pretty well with my skin tone.

Out of the Zoya PixieDusts, I have all of the polishes from the original Spring release and I'm working on getting my greedy hands on the Summer colors....they will be mine!  The Zoyas are great for when I want textured, but not too textured (like some of the chunky glitter can be in the OPI Liquid Sands).  The brand I reach for depends on how textured I want to go.
