I’ve just painted remnants of creamy beach shores on my nails. I’ve reviewed the Zoya Pixie Dust polish before in the shade Vespa. This is the latte nude version in Godiva. Juicy high shine gel finishes are complete stunners and quite fun but can be eventually overrated after awhile I think, after a few nicks and scratches on the way out you’re bound to fret. As I mentioned before when it came to the whole caviar nail fever that hit last year I was a total snob…not interested in the slightest even though I tried to read up on it simply because it was super not my type. I didn’t mind the idea of painting variations of texture over my nails to change it up (I still like glossy finishes, just get bored) but a more subtle curveball had to do the job, something a little more like this.
The finish is a sandy matte grain with infused micro glitter, as always with Zoya it looks sophisticated. The polish itself is a little more runny than standard formulas only because it dries to different finish, it still coats evenly if you don’t over apply, just wipe the brush excess on the mouth of the bottle before applying each layer. It’s best to let two minutes pass before applying the wave of second coats. What you’re looking at is two coats applied over a Caronia basecoat. If you’re on for texture then no topcoat required. When the shade isn’t in direct daylight it’s the color of a creamy latte and I love that it’s neither too yellow nor too cool of a nude, it’s pretty neutral. This cost Php550.00 via Ebay PH and details for where I sourced Zoya Pixie Dust polishes are here in my previous post where I featured the green shade Vespa.
