I haven't been too impressed so far with the textured polishes that have been around this year. I found them interesting, but not for me. However! I saw swatches the other day of Zoya Chynna and had to try it out! The Zoya Pixie Dust polishes are Zoya's contribution to the textured polish bandwagon.
This is two coats of Chynna, with no topcoat.
I really like this one! The texture is much finer than say the OPI liquid sand polishes, and this doesn't feel as rough. The red is such a gorgeous deep colour too, and even matte and textured, the glitter is really sparkly and pretty.
The application and formula on this were excellent. I love Zoya brushes, they're so neat and tidy and easy to use. The polish applied smoothly and evenly; one coat was almost enough, but I added a thin second coat just to make it perfectly opaque. Drying time was a bit longer than the usual for non-textured polishes, but not significantly longer.
Zoya isn't particularly easy to find in the UK. I bought this on Amazon UK for £10.
