First off, these polishes were sent to me for my honest review.
(If you click Zoya PixieDust anywhere in this post, it will take you to the Zoya Pixiedust page, you know, just in case you want to order some. :D)
Here we go!
I am a HUGE fan of textured polishes. Especially the Zoya PixieDusts.
Lets see how Zoya describes them.

ZP703 - Dhara: Dazzling Coppery Orange. Exclusive Zoya PixieDust - Textured Matte Sparkle Metal* formula.
My initial reaction of the bottles was OMG, I LOVE THEM ALL!!!! I especially love love LOVED Tomoko and Carter In the bottle. I had such high hopes.
First off, you know I don't do swatches. That is not what I've ever done. There are many great swatches out there Harri at Trailerhood Chic has some AMAZING ones. Check hers out!!! I just don't feel I can do swatching very well. Of course I did nail art. :D
Ok, on to my review:
The final texture on all of them were just as I expected, with the exception of Carter. It was a little softer than the others. It was more of a concrete finish than sandy, but still lovely.
Formula and coverage: The formula was great on all of them was great, AGAIN, except for Carter. It was thick but workable. Chita, Sunshine, Arabella, and Dhara were all one coaters. Tomoko took 2, and Carter took 3 for full coverage which was odd because it was definitely the thickest of all of them. The second time I used it, i had to put thinner in it. I'm wondering if I got a bad bottle. I am disappointed in Carter. All the rest were exceptional. *****EDIT: I've used Carter several times since I've thinned it. The
finished texture is better (more sandlike) and the polish is a LOT easier to work with.
However, I still don't have the coverage I would like. I wanted so bad for it to be a one coater.*****
Zoya always wears exceptionally long on me. It always lasts at least 5 days (that is as long as i can stand the same mani) These were no exception. I skittled and wore them for 5 days with very minimal tip wear.
My favorite of the entire set Tomoko. It is beautiful. it's silvery, it's hard to photograph, it's wonderful.
Ok, thats my review, lets get on to some pics. Thats what you came for!!!
(pre thinned, you can see it's not as sandy as the others. I should have taken a picture of it up against the others.) stamped with Konad Special White and freehanded Zoya Posh hearts

Over all, I am really happy with the Zoya PixieDusts. Carter is a pain, but workable. The color is amazing, so I can put up with a wonky formula for a beautiful color.
