Zoya Cosmo, Lux, Vega Magical Pixie Dust Nail Lacquers

Zoya Magical Pixie Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) takes the original Pixie Dust formula and adds larger glitter and “holographic pixie particle.” These can be worn on their own, or you can apply a top coat for a glossy effect, as they’ll have a metallic-matte-like finish without one. I get about seven days of wear out of the Pixie Dust polishes with minor tip wear and no chipping. All three ran a little on the thicker side, so getting the 2-3 thin coats Zoya recommends for application takes some patience.

  1. Urban Decay 69 — a bright, medium-dark red with cool undertones
  2. Zoya Amy — a fiery, gold-shimmered orange
  3. Sugarpill Buttercupcake — bright, matte yellow
  4. Illamasqua Fledgling — rich, grassy green with a matte finish
  5. OCC Man by Man — a metallic teal
  6. Urban Decay Radium — a medium blue with shimmer
  7. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a blue-purple with shimmer
  8. Fyrinnae Parental Advisory — a bold, cool-toned purple
  9. Too Faced Lollipop — violet with fuchsia shimmer
  10. Dior Aventure (81) — because life isn’t complete without taupe
