Zoya Spring Collections 2014Friday, February 28, 2014
Hi Dolls! Zoya Spring 2014 is here and looking mighty fine. Today we'll browse the NEW Magical Pixie, a holographic version of Zoya's original best-selling PixieDust formula. Awaken, a spring color palette of metallic shimmers and soft creams. And of course, Monet, a holographic topper, love child of twinkling fairy dust and cupcake sprinkles!
Let's start with my current obsession, shall we?!
Meet "Dot" she's from the Awaken collection. Dot is a luscious shade of creamy strawberry pink frosting. Full coverage in 3 thin coats.
Meet "Monet" the holographic topper and star of the show. Monet is like sparkling cupcake sprinkles... You kinda wanna eat'em but can't cause it's your secret potion of twinkling fairy dust that magically makes your day better when you look at it. ;)
Holographic nail polish does take a little more work to apply, getting those large flat pieces to disperse evenly and lay smoothly over the nail can be a challenge sometimes. I found Monet applied fairly easily if I dipped the brush into the bottle only once, give it a swirl to pick the amount of pieces you want, apply that single dollop onto your nail and brush it out with a few light strokes. It starts to dry rather quickly, so if you must double dip, do it fast, otherwise you might not get a smooth, even application.
My Current Nail Polish Obsession: Dot and Monet
This combination has PinkSoFoxy written all over it! It's fun, girlie, pink and sparkles amazingly in the sunlight. Looking at it brightens my day and makes my heart smile.

Awaken Spring 2014
Awaken, a spring color palette of metallic shimmers and soft creams.
Cole, a full coverage peach cream.
Dot, a pink petal cream. Full coverage in 3 thin coats.
(You met her already)
Brooklyn, a full coverage white gold metallic shimmer.
Hudson, a full coverage purple orchid metallic with silver shimmer.
Dillon, a full coverage mint green metallic with silver shimmer.
Rebel, a full coverage blue sky metallic with silver shimmer.
For me, the most exciting discovery within these collections was Dot and Monet, totally obsessed with this yummy strawberry shortcake look, as my husband calls it. If you tend to prefer creams, rather than metallic shimmers or textured glitters, choices are limited here. Dot and Cole are the only creams, they are both gorgeous spring shades with a smooth formula and application. Cole is a sunny peach and well worth checking out.
The other colors in Awaken are metallics. Brooklyn is a very shiny bright metallic gold, think molten gold, it's very chrome-like. Hudson, Dillion and Rebel are very similar in formula and all have silver shimmer. Dillon was the standout here for me, a unique minty green.
In Magical Pixie, Lux is the star of the collection, with Cosmo coming in a close second. Both apply fairly easily, considering they're loaded with tons of sparkle and holographic hexagon particles, two light coats and astronauts will be able to see your nails gleaming from outer space.
Vega, an iridescent shimmering mermaid color, was unfortunately my least favorite. I had a hard time getting my mermaid scales to lay flat and smooth. The formula appeared thicker than Lux and Cosmo, so it dried looking a bit chunky on me. That's ok though, I'm more of a strawberry shortcake girl anyway. ;)
PinkSoFoxy's Favorites: Dot, Monet, Lux.
