Zoya Fall 2014 Ultra PixieDusts (L->R) Oswin, Arianna, and Noir

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL! It's the mossstttt wonderfullll timeeee of the yearrrrrrrr! :D To celebrate, I have Zoya's Fall 2014 Ultra PixieDusts. These vary a little bit from the regular and Magical PixieDusts. There's matching colored hex within the PixieDust and the finish of 2 of them are a little - not PixieDust like? LOL I don't know how to describe it... you'll just have to take a look!

Oswim is a "true red textured PixieDust with crimson Mega Hex particles". This seems to be the only true matte finish out of the 3.  I want to wear this during Christmastime, it's like perfect. It also reminds me of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz! Haha I'm really diggin' the matching red hex! I like it a lot more than the holographic hex in the Magical PixieDusts.

I did 2 coats of Oswin. The application was smooth and super easy to work with. No issues at all. Dry time was also great, I actually feel like it's better than all the previous PixieDust polishes.

Arianna is a "blue-toned red wine textured PixieDust with Mega Hex particles". I think this is my favorite out of the bunch. You can see from my macro what I meant by the change in matte texture, right?  To be honest though, it's only super obvious if you're staring at it... or taking a macro lmao!

I did 3 coats of Arianna. This seemed to be the sheerest one of them all, haha took a few more coats to kill my visible nail line. No issues with application, easy to apply. I'd wait a little bit between coats to allow it to dry. Otherwise, no issues :]

Noir is a "deep, vampy plum textured PixieDust with red Mega Hex particles".  I think this is the coolest looking one, mostly because the glitter is a smidge bit lighter than the base it's in. I could totally go for more PixieDusts that look like this :] As you can see from the swatches, this polish isn't the usual matte finish PixieDusts have. So strange...

I did 2 coats of Noir. Application was great and easy to work with. Dry time was great and again, no issues :]

These are a little interesting in compared to past PixieDust collections. I wish they all dried like Oswin, but it is what it is! Arianna is my favorite, but I'm loving all of them purely because of their colors. Interested in my past PixieDust swatches - check 'em out here!

Hope you have a magical first day of falllllllll!
