Both of these polishes are from Zoya's Pixie Dust collection, which came out a few weeks ago. At first, I was a little bit skeptical as I'm a huge fan of glossy tips, but I was very curious as to how a gritty consistency would translate in real life. One thing I must say is that both of these polishes catch the light in a very elegant way and creates an effect that glossy polishes can't. Images can't even show how wonderfully sparkly they are, you'll just have to check them out yourselves!
First, I have Zoya's Godiva, which is my favorite of the two I picked up. Consistency was great, and it dried relatively more quickly than your average, smooth consistency lacquer. Color-wise, this nude is perfect for my skin tone and completely flattering, I have a feeling I'll be wearing this polish a lot this summer! Godiva is really a lovely polish, throughout the day I caught myself staring down at my nails and amazed at how sparkly it is.
Secondly, here's Chyna, which seems to be most bloggers' favorite. Again, consistency was a joy, even better than Godiva, and allowed for precise control, something I was not expecting to get with a gritty polish! The base color is a very rich red, and it's filled with red sparkles that catch the light very glamorously. All I can think of when I see this polish is Marilyn Monroe!
Removal of these polishes is easier than a typical, glitter-packed color, but it's still tougher than removing a creme based color. Also, these polishes wear pretty well, I only had minor tip-wear after five days, and I'm rough on my nails!
Overall, I really like these polishes and would definitely recommend trying them out!
