swatch-a-roo: all my textured nail polishes

i finally received the latest Zoya PixieDust fall 2013 collection and i was so excited to add this to my growing stash of textured polishes! at the same time, i figure i would swatch all my textured polishes for you so if you’re in the market to buy the new Zoya pixies, i hope i can provide you with some shades you might already have in your collection. i also started grouping similar colors together but that’ll take some more time to take pictures and find the corresponding swatch on my nail wheels.

i also should disclaim that i only like the textured polishes that have glitter in them. i do not like the ones that dry to a solid matte, flat finish. i need me some sparkle! and while these do dry to a matte finish, they have enough shimmer or glitter to sparkle so pretty in the sun. and before i forget, each swatch is 2 coats of polish.

however, i just noticed my error! i accidentally switched one of the summer pixies with the original pixies. honestly, i don’t want to redo my nail wheel so i’ll point out my mistake below…

i will do a separate post with comparisons of the new Zoya pixies with the others in my collection. i can already tell you that Tomoko from the fall collection is so similar to Godiva from the original collection. i also highly recommend that you get Chita… what an awesome green and it’s the only green one in my collection! Carter did swatch a bit sheer on the nail wheel. and Sunshine is a beautiful deep blue. okay, i will talk more about these colors in the next post! if you have any special requests, please let me know in the comments and i’ll let you know if i have that polish in my collection. thanks for reading! xoxo Kathleen
