Hello friends! Today I have for you pictures and a live swatch video of the Zoya Enchanted Holiday 2016 collection which consists of 6 polishes. I am so excited to bring you this review because, not only am I a super huge fan of their Pixie Dust polishes, but these colors are absolutely stunning... and they're available for purchase now.
I'm kicking it off with the non-pixies for this review, and starting with Saint. This is such a unique color and I love it! This is a soft blue-purple, leaning towards periwinkle with a magenta shimmer throughout. I love this type of color and finish because I like the pearlescent/opalescent feel to it! This polish was the most sheer and took 3 coats in order to get full opacity. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Self-leveling was great, and no issues noted with dry time. There are streaks on application but most of those go away once it's dry,
Okay, I know you have probably heard all the rave about this polish... but it's only because it's so stunning. Firstly, I may be bias (to most of the collection actually) because blue is my favorite color, and my favorite in polish as well. This is so gorgeous. The deep indigo base is really flattering, and the shimmer is strong. In the bottle you can see a purple shift, but it's not as apparent on the nail. For me, this is a must have if these are your colors and you want a statement polish. This polish is a one-coater for full opacity, however, it is slightly thicker than the rest of the polishes. I found that in order to get clean lines around my cuticle to avoid clean-up, I had to apply it slowly. However, there were no issues, and it wasn't difficult. Self-leveling was great, and no issues noted with dry time.
Okay, now we get into the Pixie Dust polishes, which are sparkly glitters that dry to a matte textured finish. These polishes were a bit thin, but formula was not difficult to work with at all. Just be careful how much polish you pick up to not flood your sides or cuticles.
In general, I have to say I deeply love the finish and sparkliness that these polishes have to offer.
This is the only "red" or warm color polish in the collection. This is a deep magenta color that also has a lot of depth because of the texture. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Shown is 2 coats.
This one is a periwinkle Pixie Dust polish. While the other Pixies in this collection have dark undertone, this one gleams more of silver glitter, and feels lighter and brighter than the others. This one also has pink and blue iridescent glitters that slightly add to the sparkle. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Shown is 2 coats.
This is a deep and rich emerald green textured glitter, and it is so gorgeous. Did you know I use to hate the color green when I was young? I know, crazy, right? I can't say I'm too fond of all shades of green, but emerald greens are now some of my favorite colors. Well, this one is just stunning, again, because of the depth offered by the texture in the polish. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Shown is 2 coats.
And lastly, but not least, we arrive at Waverly, a deep and rich sapphire blue textured glitter, and again another stunner. What can i say, other than I really love this. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. Shown is 2 coats.
So, I don't know if you can tell, but I really love this collection. I love all the cool tones, yet they are rich, and dark. This is probably one of my favorite, not only winter collections, but collection as a whole that I have ever had, solely based on the colors.
Again, if there is any color you want to purchase, the entire collection is available at Zoya.com, and they each retail for $10.00 each.
Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you enjoyed this review (insert sparkly-eyed emoji).
