Zoya PixieDust: Vespa & Godiva

Swatches & Review

I received the Zoya PixieDust nail polish set from the company for free in exchange for my honest opinion/review.

Last week, I reviewed two of the PixieDust nail polishes from Zoya for Spring. Today, I have the next two, which is Vespa & Godiva.

To apply these, you need to apply a thin first layer, wait for it to fully dry & then apply a second coat.

For my swatches, I used three coats each. Unlike Chyna & Dahlia, these were a bit more sheer.
Vespa: Light green with silver glitter.
Godiva: Nude-beige with silver glitter.

Since these were applied without a base coat and without a top coat, I decided to see how well they held up. What I noticed about Vespa & Godiva was that they held up a lot better than Chyna & Dahlia. It was quite surprising since I used more coats for these.

By day four, you can see there is noticeable tip wear on my right hand.

By day five, the nail polish on my right index finger was chipping off. However, the left fingers show some tip wear.

Day six was the last day I had these on. As you can tell, the ones on my left hand had a pretty good wear of these since they lasted very well. However, my right hand had nail polish on my middle & index finger that was chipping off.

Like Chyna & Dahlia, these held up very well for my left hand fingers (because I do not use my left hand much). On my right hand fingers, you can see that the ones on my index & middle finger was chipping off by the last day I wore these. They lasted four days on my right hand very well. These were more sheer than Chyna & Dahlia, which required them to be 3 coats each. I felt like these felt a bit softer than Chyna & Dahlia, but I don't know if it is because I got used to it. From the four I have tried so far, I really like Godiva. I love going to the beach and the nude-texture feeling reminded me of the sand. The removal was easy on these as well. I used Zoya's nail polish remover and placed the cotton with it onto my nails for about a minute. After having the cotton ball there for a minute, the PixieDust texture nail polish came off very easily without sticking to my nails & my skin. I think a lot of people have been interested in the texture because there were times when I was sitting through a lecture in class & a random girl sitting next to me would just start touching me nails (weird, isn't it?) & then say "it looks like it is fun to touch!"... haha! It happened to me three times. For a texture nail polish, it stays on well and it is easy to remove, which is a plus for me!

What do you think about Vespa & Godiva? Have you tried Zoya's PixieDust collection?

These are available for purchase on now, and they retail for $9 per 0.5oz bottle.

  1. ooo pretty! i like both of these colors and how you wore them together

    1. I like how these two colors look nice together too! :)

  2. I really like the colors of the most recent Pixie Dusts, but just can't get behind the texture trend. The 2 colors you tested are very complimentary, I would probably love them as typical glitters. It's really interesting to see how they wear, though!
