If you are looking for some fabulous, sparkly, unique show stopping nails this summer you won’t be disappointed with Zoya PixieDust Summer 2013 Collection. This might very well be one of Zoya’s most inspired collections to date! The PixieDust formula and texture is infused with the most gorgeous sparkle, magic and wonder, and add to that an assortment of six swoon-worthy summer hues and you can’t help but smile about these amazing new polishes!
PixieDust is a long-wearing, fast drying, textured, matte nail polish with a glistening sparkle and sugary finish unlike any other polish. The Pixie Polishes remind me of the way the sand sparkles when the sunlight hits it in just the right way and it is so fabulous and incredibly unique that people stop me all the time when I’m wearing it.
The key to PixieDust looking FAB is all about applying it correctly: You DO NOT use a base coat or top coat, I repeat NO base or top! You just apply 1-3 thin coats of polish and allow it to dry completely between layers for the full Pixie effect and it only takes about 10 minutes for this polish to dry down completely matte. Once this polish is dry, you will have amazing matte, textured nails that are ultra-glittery!
I think it’s about time for a FABULOUS Spring Giveaway, don’t you? Well, you are in for a real treat because one of my most adored SoCal fashion brands is offering a very generous giveaway for Romy Raves readers, can I get a WOOT WOOT! First, let me tell you about the brand. Subtle Luxury is a SoCal based clothing company that designs fashion items with a washed, cozy lived-in look and a vintage feel.
Subtle Luxury makes the most gorgeous high quality cashmere sweaters that I have been wearing and buying for years! What I love about Subtle Luxury’s sweaters is that they are super lightweight, cozy, the designs are on trend and figure flattering and they hold up well over time. I have had some of my sweaters over ten years and the styles and quality have endured. And although they don’t come cheap, the craftsmanship and beautiful creative silhouettes are TOTALLY worth it!
They recently sent me the fabulous Tissue Thin V-Sweater in Persimmon ($234) which I am wearing in the picture above and I LOVE it! It is such a vibrant gorgeous show stopping melony Springy hue and it totally captures the season. And can we talk about the fabulous cut of this sweater, gorgeous, right? I love how the sides hang long and frame and flatter the body. These sweaters are made out of 100% California Cashmere, are ultra thin and super lightweight making them perfect for Spring and Summer and they can even be hand washed. However, I’m sad to say that this color sweater was so popular, that they have already sold out, but you can find a very similar style HERE.
