Hey y’all! Today I’m so incredibly excited to share the new Enchanted Holiday 2016 collection, available now from Zoya! This collection includes 4 new pixie dust shades as well as two brand new shimmers. These were sent to me for review and I’ll be sharing swatches both with and without topcoat as well as comparisons of some similar (or not so similar) shades within the Zoya line.

First up is Saint, described as a “a whimsical color-flip metallic with a periwinkle base and magenta shift.” Saint has a very beautiful light blue/purple base with very strong pink shimmer! The shimmer is very slightly brushstrokey but not terribly. This polish has amazing coverage at 2 coats but was fully opaque for me in 3. I don’t think I have anything close to this shade in my collection!

Next up is Alice, described as a “captivating periwinkle with magenta and blue sparkles in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.” This gorgeous pixie dust had full coverage for me in 2 coats and I love how prismatic it looks on the nail! it does had a pink shimmer that dances just around the edges that was hard to catch on camera. This is one of my top picks and genuinely unlike any other polish in my collection!

Next up is Elphie, described as a “bewitching emerald green with a sugary green sparkle in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.” I was sure this was going to be similar to Chita but they look so difference upon comparison! Elphie was completely opaque for me in 2 coats and dried down beautifully to the typical pixie dust texture.

Next up is my number one top pick, Olivera! Olivera is described as a “spellbinding color-flip metallic with an indigo base and a green and purple shift.” The pinky purple shift is so hard to catch on camera but is incredibly evident on the nail. I was completely surprised at how opaque this polish is! With careful application Olivera can be opaque in just 1 coat, I’ve done two for my swatches today. I also had no staining with this polish even though the base is a gorgeous inky blue!

Next up is Waverly, described as a “brilliantly deep sapphire blue with blue sparkles in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.” I was so sure that Waverly was going to be a dude for Zoya’s Liberty but Waverly is much much darker. Opaque in 2 coats, this is a stunning deep bright blue with the perfect sugary texture.

Lastly today I have Lorna, described as a “luscious berry with a sugary sparkle in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.” Lorna is very similar in shade to Noir but in the super fine pixie texture as opposed to noir’s larger Magical Pixie formula. opaque for me in 2 coats, this is the kind of shade that reminds me of the photos of girl’s with the perfect matte nails, dark autumn lipstick, and sweaters.
