[L->R] Lorna, Elphie, Waverly, Alice, Olivera, and Saint

HAPPY HOLIDAY 2016, y'all! This collection combines my favorite colors with some sparkle :] Zoya's Holiday 2016 collection features unique polishes that do not disappoint! I'm super stoked that they introduced some more PixieDust polishes! Zoya really does textured polish right. If you're not a fan of textured, there are some pretty shimmers in this collection too. Check out all 6 polishes in the Enchanted Collection after the jump!

Zoya Lorna (PixieDust)
Zoya Lorna (PixieDust)

Lorna is a pretty, "luscious berry with a sugary sparkle". I really like this polish for being festive but not tooooo festive.  These berry shades are typically the colors I gravitate toward during colder months, having this color in a PixieDust formula makes it much more interesting to wear!

I did 3 coats of Lorna. No issues with application but I do recommend waiting between coats to allow it to dry completely. Learned that lesson after waking up with wrinkly polish!

Zoya Elphie (PixieDust)

Next up is Elphie, a "bewitching emerald green with a sugary green sparkle". YESSSS! I love this color so much. It reminds me of a Christmas tree! Throw some cute ornaments or paint on some garland over this polish and you have a fun sparkly mani without spending too much time on your nail art ;]

I did 2 coats of Elphie. This was slightly more opaque than Lorna, making dry time quicker. No issues to report.


Zoya Waverly (PixieDust)

Zoya Waverly is a "brilliantly deep sapphire blue with blue sparkles".  This is a slightly darker blue than Zoya PixieDust Sunshine minus the silver glitter that Sunshine has running through it. If you're looking for a nice midnight blue textured polish saturated with color (without the staining, thankfully!), give Waverly a shot.

I did 2 coats of Waverly. This had a nice opaque formula that was super easy to build up. Dry time wasn't an issue, I'd still wait between coats though for all PixieDust polishes. I thought this one had the best application out of the PD polishes in this collection. No issues at all to report.

Zoya Alice (PixieDust)
Zoya Alice (PixieDust)

Alice is a "captivating periwinkle with magenta and blue sparkles". This was the most sparkly PixieDust polish in the collection. It has iridescent super-micro flakies! Remind me of a gumdrop... a gumdrop with super pretty colors :P

I did 3 coats of Alice. This PixieDust formula was on the sheer side. I assume it's more sheer because of the lighter color. It was opaque after 3 coats, I thought it would take more for some reason. No issue with dry time when waiting between coats.

Zoya Saint

Saint (you know, Pete Wentz's son's name :P) is a "whimsical color-flip metallic with a periwinkle base and magenta shift". Look at that macro! In love with how apparently the magenta shift is. It looks awesome against the blue base. This is a nice icy polish that is magical and sparkly! Perfect for winter :]

I did 3 coats of Saint. I did run into some balding where my nail curves, nothing a 3rd coat couldn't fix! Application is nice and smooth and no issues with dry time.

Zoya Olivera

Last but not least is Olivera, a magical "color-flip metallic with an indigo base and a green and purple shift". Totally unexpected color in this collection but sooooo appreciated. I love how unique this polish is. I was totally shocked by the deep inky blue base while applying Olivera,  looks fantastic against the shifting shimmer.

I did 1 coat of Olivera. The formula was thick and opaque but still very easy to apply. Dry time was also without any issues. I wish all polishes were as flawless as this formula is!

And that's the Holiday 2016 Collection from Zoya! I think this collection is a lot of fun and unique. I can see this making a fun mix of colors to give as a gift. My top picks for this collection are: Olivera, Waverly, and Lorna. Which ones are a must have for you?

If you're looking to purchase some of these colors as gifts (or gifts for yourself...haha) be sure to check out this steal of a BOGO deal Zoya is currently running. I don't get any compensation for sharing this deal, I really think it's that great haha.
