Today I’ve got yet another textured polish for you! It’s Zoya Pixie Dust Godiva. There’s a quote, “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. Lady Godiva, for whom this polish may or may not have been named, appears at first glance to be a well-mannered, proper neutral shade. Sensible, even. However, upon closer examination, you’ll see the unusual, matte texture, filled with gleaming sparkle, that kicks this polish from well-behaved to fun. It seems only fitting, since it is named after a woman’s nude ride in the 13th century. Though there is speculation as to whether or not the ride actually happened, it’s still a neat story.
The website says

Tips for application
Do not use a base coat or top coat.
Apply 1-3 (for full coverage) thin coats of polish.
Allow product to dry completely in between layers for full effect.
The PixieDust textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry down completely matte. Once dry, the textured finish is long lasting, matte and ultra-glittery!
I personally love the textured nail polishes. This is my first Zoya textured nail polish. I like their formula. I wasn’t quite sold on the color, but then it was the last one on the display, and it was named Godiva, and Ray said it was worth it to try it based on the name alone, so I figured why not.
Honestly, I’m glad i did. I like having a good nude I can whip out as needed, and it’s not a boring shade! I feel like the texture and the demure sparkles in it. It rounds out my collection of textured polishes nicely.
Have you tried any of Zoya’s textured polishes? What do you think of Godiva? Are you embracing the textured polish trend?
