Zoya – Pixie Dust – London meets Polish Alcoholic’s Intergalactic Dust

So I did it. I bought a Pixie Dust. I wasn’t sure if I would, since I was so disappointed with Nails Inc Concrete Effect polishes, I thought that maybe the rough finish just isn’t for me. But I have to admit, it’s kind of pretty.

Zoya - Pixie Dust - London

 

I picked London since – surprise, surprise – it’s the one I’m most likely to wear. It’s actually pretty easy to apply, there’s no noticeable grittiness until it dries. And it dries very fast. I used just 2 coats to get it nice and opaque. It is one heck of a lot prettier than the Concrete Effect. But I still don’t know if I could cope with wearing rough nails for any significant length of time!

One use that I’ve seen around and quite like is sponging over this type of polish; and I’m such a sucker for holo polish at the moment, I had to go for the strongest one that I’ve found so far – Intergalactic Dust by Polish Alcoholic, which Sabrina super-kindly sent to me to try. This is a real-Spectraflair top coat, and is super super concentrated, I just sponged a little on the tips, and bam !

One thing I was actually really pleased to find out about Pixie Dust polishes, is that they are really top-coat thirsty. You see, I work in an office, and if coloured nails scrape along paper, they leave a nice colourful streak behind – unless they’ve been topcoated. But since London is so thirsty, one coat of top coat will not ruin the texture at all !

And of course, Intergalactic Dust isn’t afraid of top coat either, the holo effect stays super strong (and, I repeat, I only sponged the tiniest bit on the tips!) – good times 🙂

I’ll be back in France in a few hours, I hope you’ve all been good while I’ve been away !
