Zoya Cosmo Nail Lacquer

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.

Cosmo is described as a “silver crystal sparkle.” It’s a light-medium, warm-toned silver with iridescent gand holographic glitter. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and Zoya lists this as having a “4” intensity, where 5 is opaque. The texture dries to a metallic-matte finish, where it isn’t glossy, but there is so much reflection from the shimmer and glitter that it doesn’t really seem matte either. NYX Ice Glitter (P, $4.00) is much sheerer and lacks the “Pixie Dust” finish. See comparison swatches.

Lux is described as a “rose quartz.” It is a light-medium, rose pink with subtle, warm undertones and larger holographic hexagon-shaped glitter. It was semi-opaque with some visible nail line coming through. This one blends in more with my underlying natural nail color (slightly pink) so it doesn’t look as sheer as Cosmo did (and it had the same intensity rating, 4). I couldn’t think of a dupe for this shade.

Vega is a light-medium, muted blue with silver glitter and larger hexagon-shaped holographic glitter. It was mostly opaque–more coverage than the other two, though Zoya has it listed as a 4 as well–and applied easily. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of any dupes for this color either!
