Here's the 3rd of my 4 PixieDust posts and instead of being excited to write this, all I can think of is "have you SEEN the new summer colours"???? If you haven't, you should head to the Zoya page right now, as they're amazeballs. Summer bright PixieDusts. Seriously, I die.
I expected Chyna to be my favourite Pixie, and I'm still kind of shocked that she's not. I can't even put my finger on what it is. Suffice to say, I think she just suffers by comparison with the subtle majesty of Vespa and Nyx.
Chyna is a ruby red, laden with the special Pixie glitter, and I think for me, this formula doesn't match the colour. There's something almost dead and meaty to the colour of the polish, and I think that might be part of why it falls flat for me. Or maybe it's just me! Whenever I see other bloggers swatch it, I still sigh. Go figure.
Also, in this polish, the silver glitter has blended with the red, creating red stars in a red night sky. This is a gorgeous effect, but very different to the other Pixies.
Put some gloss on it and you literally cry that this wasn't released at Christmas. This becomes the ultimate Christmas red - sparkly, sexy and just lalalalala.
Here's a couple more photos while I go and have a lie down and dream of the summer pixies :) xx
