Review: Zoya "Stevie"


What I Used:
  • 1 coat of Zoya Anchor Base Coat
  • 2 coats of Zoya Stevie
  • 1 coat of Zoya Armor Top Coat

According to Zoya: Stevie can be best described as a violet sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Textured, Matte, Sparkle formula.


Color [10/10]
Stevie is simply gorgeous! She's dainty and girly and I was in love immediately.

Application [9/10]
I think Stevie might be the smoothest of the Pixie Dusts that I own. She practically applies herself, but the first coat is extremely sheer, but there's full coverage with just two.


Finish [10/10]
So sparkly! The amount of sparkle packed into Stevie is astounding. I couldn't stop admiring my nails.

Longevity [8/10]
Stevie held up for ten days with minimal tip wear, and just some very minor chipping. Although those chips were starting to peel before removal.

 Final Score: 9.25

Review: Zoya "Dahlia"


What I Used:
  • 1 coat of Zoya Anchor Base Coat
  • 2 coats of Zoya Dahlia
  • 1 coat of Zoya Armor Top Coat

According to Zoya: Dahlia can be best described as a black beauty with a sugared sparkle, in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

Color [8/10]
I loved Dahlia, but I was expecting something darker. Instead of being a black with silver, it's more of a charcoal grey. It's still very pretty though!

Application [9/10]
Just like most of the Pixie Dusts, this goes on super smooth. It also takes two coats for full coverage.

Finish [9/10]
It's so sparkly! My only complaint is that in some lights the base color looks washed out.

Longevity [8/10]
It held up for about ten days before it started chipping. The tip wear was quite noticeable though.

 Final Score: 8.5

Review: Zoya "Black Swan"


What I Used:
  • 1 coat of Zoya Anchor Base Coat
  • 2 coats of Zoya Black Swan
  • 1 coat of Zoya Armor Top Coat

According to Zoya: N/A

Color [10/10]
It's black, a nice deep black. I love black polish almost as much as I love green.

Application [7/10]
Black Swan has a good formula, but I docked points because I have a one coat black with a perfect formula. This takes two.

Finish [9/10]
Black Swan is really glossy!

Longevity [8/10]
It lasted the full week with minimal tip wear, but it's noticeable because of the color. No chips!

Final Score: 8.5
