There was a time when I thought Zoya might be phasing out the PixieDust formula. But I’m really glad I was wrong.
Zoya’s new Enchanted collection consists of four glittering PixieDust Mattes and two velvety color-flip metallics, and the result is pretty rich.
Let’s start with these “color-flip” polishes – and really, by color-flip, it looks like duochrome.
Saint is described as a “whimsical color-flip metallic with a periwinkle base and magenta shift.” The formula on this one seems more like a shimmer with a shift of magenta. It’s really beautiful and eye-catching in the light. Two coats and this was perfection. It’s a little lighter in the purple than my pics show – definitely more periwinkle in real life!
Olivera is positively stunning. She’s described as a “spellbinding color-flip metallic with an indigo base and a green and purple shift.” Again, I would call this more a shimmer formula than a metallic but I totally agree, this polish has such depth, such richness. And it’s so highly pigmented – one coat might have done it, but I was greedy and wanted to see two. I think this is going down as one of my favorite polishes of 2016.
Elphie is described as a “bewitching emerald green with a sugary green sparkle.” This is a great, Christmas-tree green. There’s something sophisticated about the Zoya PixieDust matte formula, do you agree? I used two coats and that was the perfect amount.
Waverly is described as a “brilliantly deep sapphire blue with blue sparkles.” The “wave” in Waverly really calls to me as this reminds me of water. It reminds me of Hanukkah. It reminds me of gift wrapping. Two coats, and I’m good to go.
Alice is described as a “captivating periwinkle with magenta and blue sparkles.” Again, my camera wants to make this lighter, more lavender purple polish look darker and bluer than it is. But Alice is a nice treat among the rich jewel-tones of the holidays. She’s still festive with her sparkle and texture, but she’s periwinkle, with hints of magenta and blue, so she stands out.
Lorna is described as a “luscious berry with a sugary sparkle.” Lorna is the kind of polish women who aren’t into the green-and-red holiday polish thing wear. She’s the kind of polish I wear when I have a work holiday function that requires a nice dress and a cocktail. Lorna is a great winter choice, all around.
Have I mentioned how much I love the PixieDust formula?! It wears like a champ on me, too.
I had no application issues on any of these, and two coats worked for all.
These polishes are available now on the Zoya site, retailing for $10 each. You can purchase them as a set for $60. Zoya has got these neat skin tone thumbnails on their site so you can see how the polishes will look on different light to dark skin tones. Olivera looks amazing on everyone, I have to say!
Zoya boasts a 10-free formula without formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor, TPHP, parabens, Xylene, ethyl tosylamide and lead.
What do you think of Enchanted? I feel like this is the vampy side of a fairytale, like straight out of “Once Upon a Time,” you know?!
