Zoya – Pixie Dust Nail Polish in Arlo
This post may contain affiliate links.
Another nail polish review for you today, this one is Pixie Dust glitter nail polish in Arlo*, from Zoya. Zoya offers a huge range of toxin-free nail polishes (there are over 300 shades to choose from) free of the top 5 toxins usually found in nail polishes – formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl phthalate and camphor – that are thought to cause cancer and birth defects.
Pixie Dust is Zoya’s range of glitter nail polishes, and Arlo is a slightly translucent pinky mauve shade. It contains silver holographic glitter flecks in 3 sizes, and I really think it could be the glitteriest sparkliest nail varnish that I have tried. The glitter is really dense and almost covers the whole of the nail after just a couple of coats, the only downside is that it makes the nail feel extremely rough, although you could add a top coat of two of clear varnish over the top which might help a little bit.
I thought that this nail polish might not have had a strong scent given that it is non-toxic, however it does still have a strong nail-varnishy chemical smell.
I love Zoya’s packaging and think the graduated bottles look really unique and premium. The small black lids are really good to hold too, which makes the polish easy to apply. I really like the ethos of Zoya, it’s the way that nail varnishes should be going with more people starting to think about the ingredients that are in their skincare and cosmetics and turning to those that contain less toxins.
I really like this Zoya Pixie Dust Nail Polish in Arlo, my nails are quite short at the moment (I cut them all down last week as a couple of them were broken) but this polish would look great on longer nails, and it’s a perfect glittery shade for the Christmas period. I’ll definitely be checking out some more of their Pixie Dust shades over the coming months.
There are over 300 shades of Zoya Nail Polish to choose from, with lots of beautiful candy and glitter shades. Arlo is part of the Magical Summer 2014 Collection, a range of 3 pastel glitter polishes. I reviewed Zoya Nail Polish in Elodie a couple of weeks ago, and I am currently wearing that on my toes.
Nail Polish in Arlo is priced at £10.50 and is available from Zoya Nail Polish UK.
