Zoya PixieDust Chita and Tomoko-- Elegant Neutrals

 *press sample


Hi friends!!  I've got my next fall Zoya PixieDust pairings to show you all today.  These two are just kind of perfect for any time and occasion, gorgeous go-to colors with just the right amount of twinkle and festiveness to them.

This is Chita.

Greens, forest and kelly shades in particular, are wonderfully versatile.  They're as wearable and elegant as red, but with a little edge and less sex.  Chita is a true matte forest green with an abundance of silver shimmer to give it that PixieDust twinkle.  It's an interesting polish, different from any other texture I've tried, because it is so matte.  That base almost drowns the silver out, but it doesn't quite, which makes for a crystalized, unique take on a new classic.  Chita's a one-coater, too.

This is Tomoko.

Tomoko is another collection standout, in my opinion, right there with the Harlow-esque Arabella.  Tomoko is a high sparkle silver and white gold shimmer in a very pale ivory colored base.  It's absolutely beautiful, slightly sheer and multidimensional, almost too pretty for everyday wear.  It reminds me of a December wedding, but look at how it reflects the summer sun...

Amazing, this one.  I used two coats.

Chita, Tomoko, and the rest of the fall PixieDusts are available at Zoya.com for $9 a piece plus shipping.  Like Zoya on facebook and stay in the loop for specials and promos.

Thank you for reading and have a lovely day!! ☼

    1. I kind of got on a green-as-neutral kick last year when I discovered Revlon Posh. This might be a bit of a stretch but I really can't think of much Chita wouldn't look cool with.

    1. Thank you :) :) It's always nice to find a green that doesn't make my hands look completely crustaceanish.

  8. Gaaaaaah Chita has knocked me out of my socks - or since it is hot - scorching hot here - out of my sandals - LOL!!! This is one of the most outstanding Pixies yet I find. But I also totally see what you are saying about Tomoko, Your post was such a pleasure to read, your description and wording impress me post after post!!! <3

    1. Tee hee :) It's been pretty hot here, too, like borderline unpleasant and I usually love the heat. Too muggy. Chita is a fabulous color and I bet it'd look fantastic on you! Zoya keeps saying matte sparkle but this one really appears to be matte, primarily, which is really cool. It reminds me of rock crystal. And thank you, as always, for your kind words on my writing :) :)
