Swatches and Review: Zoya Fall 2013 - PixieDust Collection

Hello darlings!

Hope everyone is feeling well? 
On the blog today is a collection I've been itching to post on here but decided to stall on because I was still in a summer mood and also because I wanted to post it close to fall season since it's a fall collection. 

Well, my patience has reached its limit and I can no longer keep these swatches to myself. They have no business being on my computer when I can share their awesomeness with you all. :-D

This is Zoya -  PixieDust Fall Collection. 

Here's a little preview for you below.. 

Please keep reading for more... 

I make no mistake when I say, I LOVE every SINGLE nail polish in this collection. I don't think I've ever made that statement on this blog before, and if I have, I'm sure it's not been a lot of times. 

When the pixiedust polishes came about, I was a bit skeptical about the texture, but after the summer collection, I fell in love. So when Zoya announced that there'd be a fall collection, this DIY Lady was HAPPY. 
When I got these beauties, I was elated and swatched them immediately! I have also worn them a couple of times and I totally have nothing bad to say. That is why I'm saying this in the beginning so as to avoid repeating myself. I LOVE this Collection so so very much!

First up is Zoya - Tomoko
A champagne color that my camera does no justice. This is sparkly and beautiful in person. It sparkles like tiny bubbles on champagne during new years eve! 

 This next picture kinda sorta shows how it looks in real life. But with each movement of your hand/fingers, the sparkle makes a BOLD statement! Certainly can't miss this one on a person's nail. It's sort of nude, but the silver sparkles makes it POW POW!

Next up is Zoya - Sunshine.
Well hello? If you loved Liberty from the summer pixiedust, say hello to her RICHER sister.

Sunshine  is that color I'd wear anytime, anywhere, whatever the season is. This one was opaque in one coat, but I used two for good measure.

Next is Zoya - Chita.
She's another one coat beauty in this collection.

Loved this one on me! The silver sparkles makes it very beautiful. 

 I took so many pictures of this one!

 And look at this picture below... I got a little fancy with my camera and look at the pointer nail showing the textured goodness, while my other fingers show the blurry beauty!

Next is Zoya - Dhara.
This is a red based orange polish. Tangerine -ish and changes from complete orange to red depending on the light in the room. 
Below is the red showing much more in Dhara

And next is the orange showing in Dhara. 
 Dhara is beautiful in every way. So sparkly!

 Next up is a polish that a lot of people have been raving about in this collection, I present....
Zoya - Carter.
Now, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that I love purple (look around the blog), so I certainly Loved this polish. But it amazed me that I only loved it because it was purple. It's a beautiful polish, it requires 2-3 coats for opacity and it has beautiful shine in its textured state.

 The rave about Carter had me looking forward to it, and although I am NOT disappointed, I still wonder to this very moment why everyone who owns this made such a huge deal about it especially on instagram. lol.. It's pretty - YES, but not as pretty as the next polish you're about to see...

I present Zoya - ARABELLA!!! 
Like, O.M.G!!! This baby is stunner!!! THIS I will rave ON AND ON AND ONE about!!!
*sighs*, I wore this for almost a week and didn't want to take it off. Everyone LOVED it on me!

She stayed on my nails strong and beautiful for all the 5 days I had her on. You'd think it's the purple in the collection I'd be head over heels in love with, but noooo.. I choose this one! Granted the color is not far away from purple, but something about this polish had me saying Heaven Bless the Zoya Fairies! 

Look at her! Not just silver sparkles... Some pink and purple ones in there! Amazingness overload!

 Darlings, that's it for my swatches of this amazing collection.
Looking at the first collage picture, you can tell my two absolute favorites from this collection. The polishes in the bigger box are it for me! Chita and Arabella.
As I stated in the beginning I love every polish here. Colors, textures, finish, look, application, all were a win for me!
