NOTD: Chyna by Zoya

Disclaimer:  I purchased this.
I'm not one to wear red polishes often, but here it is two weeks in a row.  I think it's the time of year and the upcoming holidays, where red is always a dominant color.  Or maybe I'm just now developing a proper appreciation for how gorgeous red can be on my nails!
Case in point - Chyna by Zoya.  Part of the Pixie Dust Fall 2013 collection, Chyna has a deep red base with flashes of fire and the occasional glint of silver.  Quite the beauty, she is, and I'm dubbing Chyna a perfect Christmas polish.  She can join China Glaze's Ruby Slippers in the gorgeous red with attitude category.
I've also got to say that I'm loving Zoya's Pixie Dust polishes.  I was late to jump on that bandwagon, but they are so easy to work with.  This is one coat over Zoya's base coat.  They dry in a flash and you are done.  The perfect "I'm in a rush and don't have time to wait for polish to dry" option, with the plus of not looking like you cut corners. 
So, if you like the textured polish look, give these a whirl.  I wore Godiva on my trip to Albuquerque and it wore great, so throw low maintenance into the mix as well.  At $8 a bottle, I can see more of these in my future!

  1. The pixie polishes do have a cool finish and they're positively packed with sparkle! I like that this red isn't too…well…red-dy. Haha! It seems lighter and the sparkles really pop on your ring finger in that second picture. Awesome!

  2. This is so beautiful! Reminds me of red velvet cake :)

  3. Such a beautiful polish! I don't own any textured polishes, but I'd def be interested in this one!
