Zoya Pixiedust Dahlia NOTD (and some updates)

I am really enjoying the textured nail trend.  I love the OPI liquid sand polishes – I bought the mini set with all four – and just purchased one of Zoya’s Pixie Dust polishes, which you see in the photo above.  Photos don’t capture the polish very well though – you can see the matte, textured effect, but you can’t see how incredibly sparkly the polish is.  The contrast between the matte and the sparkle is part of what makes the look work so well.

I’m also eagerly awaiting the Milani textured polishes – they’re online at Milani.com (though the page doesn’t seem to be working at the moment), but I haven’t seen them yet at drugstores in my area. I’m planning to get the gray only; I’m not yet sold on the idea of brightly colored textured polish.  Here’s the promo image, in case you haven’t seen it yet:

Also – some minor updates:

- I added more Wet n Wild Toppings Collection swatches to this post.

- I purchased a couple more Rimmel Scandal Eyes liners (black and purple), and added swatches to my original review.

- I also purchased one more Rimmel Scandal Eyes shadow stick (in Paranoid Purple) and added a swatch to my review.

    Thanks for sharing this shade. When I saw this collection on the Zoya site, this was one of the colors that just looked amazing. I’m not sure how I’d feel about the texture though, I feel like it might bother me throughout the day.

    I am loving these too! I skip a topcoat and quite enjoy running my hands along the asphalty surface throughout the day.

    I have a hard time getting into textured polish in any sense – matte, ‘liquid sand,’ etc. It’s so funny because when I first started wearing polish on the regular, I didn’t like a super-shiny finish – now I can’t live without it!
