6 textured, matte, sparkling, vibrant shades that just scream sunny days and summer fun.
Lots of pics in this post so I’ll try to keep my excited ramblings to a minimum. ☺
|playing with a new photo app, pretty cool huh!|

Beatrix is a bright tangerine orange metallic that also features the new foil twinkle formula (gold sparkles). 2 easy coats for complete coverage. Like most of the PixieDusts the dry time was super fast and removal is much easier than you’d expect.

Destiny, oh Destiny how I love thee.. a stunning coral with a jelly-ish base and those beautiful gold sparkles.. ahhh so pretty. I used 3 coats, perfect formula and application. Although with the jelly base it did take a little longer to dry but not by much, maybe 3 extra minutes. Still really fast compared to some cremes and such.

Miranda is rose colored with the same “sparkle formula” found in the original Pixies meaning it has silver glitter. Miranda also has that great jelly like base which makes the color so much more saturated. 3 coats here, great application but make sure to wear a good base coat with it. I did find that it stained my nails pink, the staining did wear off pretty quickly though so not too big a deal.

Stevie is a stunning violet sparkle. I was so happy when I saw that a purple would be featured in this collection. I adore this shade of purple and the silver sparkle accents it perfectly. I went with 3 coats, 2 covered good but I wanted a bolder color so I added 1 more.

And last but not least the star of the Summer collection, Liberty. A blue “sugary sparkle” with blue glitter and a jelly base. I only needed 2 coats- it’s super pigmented and the application was awesome. I especially loved it with topcoat!
I do want to say these photos are not completely color accurate, actually I googled everyone else’s swatches as well and in my opinion it seems no one has captured Liberty’s exact color. I tried 3 different light bulbs and 2 cameras, it just reads blue. In reality it’s actually a deeper blue that leans sort of teal like. Simply gorgeous! I could wear it forever! But beware it’s a major stainer. Thankfully I saw someone post the aftermath on IG before I swatched it so I made sure to wear a hefty coat of my American Classics Yellow Stopper underneath and I didn’t have any staining at all.
