Oswin is a clear favorite to me - a bright, ruby red polish that dries to a rough, textured finish. To get this look, I carefully painted on each coat and waited for the layer to completely dry before moving onto the next, and I skipped the top coat. (Of course, you can add top coat for a super sparkly finish!) This polish is just so eye-catching! Shown above is three thin, careful coats over base coat.
Arianna is a slightly darker red with a cool tone that dries to a rough, textured finish. This polish was more jelly-like than Oswin, so I found that the texture didn't look as dry or sandpaper-y. Shown above is three thin, careful coats over base coat - no top coat!
And finally we have Noir, a dark plum that dries to a rough, textured finish. This was the most jelly-like of them all, and the more layers I painted on, the deeper the purple base showed. I love how it looks almost black in the photo above! Where the other two polishes featured red glitters, I noticed that this one had pink glitter as well. I imagine that this color would look especially beautiful with top coat!
Overall, I really enjoyed this new formula (better than the Magical Pixie Dusts!), although I wish they all had the same formula as Oswin, which just dried so beautifully. Hopefully Zoya can continue to tweak this formula to perfection, because I am in love with these textured polishes.
The Ultra Pixie Dust polishes are available from Zoya for $10 USD each. Be sure to follow Zoya on Facebook for news and information.
