NOTD: Zoya "Stevie"



 This gorgeous polish was on my Wishlist as soon as i knew it was being released this Summer.
I got uber lucky when a fellow Nail polisher had a blog sale and had this baby and also its sister "Miranda" which will be making an appearance here someday soon!

This is Zoya "Stevie", a beautiful light purple pink and is part of the Pixie Dust range.  Its a textured polish, pretty much alike to Opi's Liquid Sand.  This one however, has a real sparkle to it, where as some of the OPI's can lack it in some of them.  But from what I've seen the whole range of Pixie Dusts have a great splattering of sparkly glitter! Yummy!!

The best way i found to apply this was actually quite thick coats.  This means though, leaving a good amount of time between each coat to allow it to dry and then at the end of all coats, waiting more than normal to do anything.  it can still be dented or smudged half an hour later so bear this in mind when using it!
It applied really well and easily as is expected with Zoya polishes.  Even from the first coat, it was really pretty, and the 3 coats just made it look gorgeous!
Base coat here was Nails Inc Hyde park.


It was so easy to apply - no accidents or going over the nail edges occurred - i do think the texture has something to help with this!
So with the 3 coats and a generous top coat of Gelous, the mani was complete!


A fantastic colour for Summer (if we have any more...!!) and perfect to brighten up the Winters too.
The top coat helps the sparkle increase and if you're not too keen on texture but like the colour, then this helps enormously too.  I kinda liked the texture but i felt i had more protection over the polish with the top coat on it...the extra shine and sparkle was an added bonus!!

Staying? Yup!

Happy Polishing!!
