(LOOK MA! I REMEMBER HOW TO WRITE A BLOG POST! *sigh*) Hey guysssss, today I finally have swatches of the latest PixieDust polishes from Zoya called the Seashells Collection. If you're unfamiliar with the PixieDust line, these are Zoya's textured polishes. And dare I say it? I think these are my favorite PD polishes to date. Check out these brand new polishes after the jump!

Zoya PixieDust Linds

Linds is a "cherry red, textured PixieDust with red and fuchsia glitter to mimic the look of maraschino cherries dipped in sugar".  This is so pretty and I can totally see this being worn around the holiday season. I love the gold shimmer shining through the red color, it's a perfect combo. I did 2 coats of Linds. No issues with application or dry time.

I was SO excited about this one the minute I put it on my nails, I mean LOOOOOOK. Zooey is a "classic pink, textured PixieDust laced with a fine thread of gold and medium sized holographic hexes". You wanna talk about gold shimmer? Check out THAT gold in Zooey! This reminds me of the beach or mermaids, which makes it perfect for summer :] I'm not a fan of pink polish, but I cannot stop staring at this one. I did 2 coats of Zooey. No issues with application or dry time, everything was awesome!

Next up is Levi, a "beige gold, textured PixieDust with medium holographic hex glitter".  This is a nice shade of gold because I don't feel like its too yellow or too bright. It's a nice subtle, metallic gold that is totally wearable while still serving you BLING. I did needed 3 coats of Levi. It was a little bit more sheer than the first 2 polishes, but no issues otherwise.

Up next is CeCe (who likes to mess with the color balance on my camera - first two photos are more accurate), a "full impact green, textured PixieDust with a thin vein of gold creating a fizzy lemon-lime effect". This really does remind me of a can of Sprite LOL I'm usually a big fan of green polish, but I'm not really like this green... maybe if it was a shade darker? Not sure, just not my jam. I did 3 coats of CeCe. I feel like this formula is really thin compared to the other polishes in this collection. Besides that, the application and dry time were great.

Well HELLLLOOO, Bay! Literally, BAE. Bay is a "sky blue, textured PixieDust with fine silver and gold glitter". This polish is what dreams are made of. This is the perfect mermaid nail polish with it's cool, refreshing shade of sparkling blue and the gold shimmer. I love it. I love it. I love it.  I had to do 3 coats of Bay, but it wasn't as thin as CeCe though. No issues with dry time or application. Can't complain one bit about this one.

Last but not least is Tilly, described as a "starry grey, textured PixieDust with a small holographic glitter interwoven with a darker gunmetal". I am really impressed with this shade of silver. Most silver polishes make my hands look stupid red, but this one doesn't look half bad on me. The tiny purple holographic hexes are a nice touch. I'm wearing this polish right now and I get distracted when it catches the sun LOL. No one's complimented me at work on this polish yet ... but I'm waiting ;] bahaha. I did 3 coats of Tilly. This wasn't on the thin side, but it was a little more sparse in the glitter department than the others. This one really benefits from full, longer strokes when being applied. No issues with dry time.
