NOTD: Zoya Pixie Dust in Destiny

I'm so excited to finally own Zoya's Pixie Dust in Destiny* from the Summer 2013 Pixie Dust Collection thanks to the lovely UK Zoya distributors. If you regularly read my blog you will have already seen me write about this nail polish in my June wish list and my mid-month haul! This nail polish really is so gorgeous and the photos just don't quite do it enough justice!

Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Sterlkonium Hectorite, Acrylates Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer

Zoya describe this nail polish as "a coral metal sparkle" with a "textured, matte, foil twinkle formula" - a perfect description I think! I applied 2 thin coats to get this effect, although 3 coats would have been perfect for a completely opaque full coverage. The two pictures above were taken indoors next to a window and the picture below was taken outdoors for comparison. I also posted a picture taken on my iPhone on my Instagram and the colour showed up as a lot more pink than these ones (taken with my digital camera), so the colour can vary a little depending on the camera/light.

If you've never tried a textured nail polish before you will undoubtedly find the finish very strange in feel. It took me a good day or so to properly get used to! The finish is really long-lasting and after wearing this for 3 days my nails still look as perfect as they did when I first applied the polish - no wear at the tips or chipping. This really is the prettiest nail polish I've ever tried and I wish you could all see how amazing this looks in real life!

Have you ever tried a textured nail polish?
