Zoya pixie dusts are a textured finish polish, Zoya did different versions, the original style was very small grit texture they then did ultra pixie dusts, these having a much larger glitter particle in them with a much rougher texture, then there were magical pixie dusts, these were like a mix between the two, with slightly bigger particles than a normal pixie dust but not as big as the ultra pixie dusts.

The pixie dusts are ment to be worn without base or top coat, however, I always advise wearing basecoat to protect your nails from staining. While they are textured they dont remove like a glitter!

Both London and Juniper are the original small grit formula.

London is described as a fog grey with a sugared sparkle, this was opaque in two coats, no running or pooling. The manicure shot is the most colour accurate, a lovely lighter grey with silver sparkle shinning through.

Juniper is described as a sparkling teal with a subtle purple/green flash, formula was perfect with no running or pooling and opaque in one sweet coat.

I love a pixie dust for durability and also they are very quick to throw on, they work amazingly for toes too.

Left to Right Levi (Original), Bar (Magical) and Thea (Ultra), hopefully you can see the differences in the bottle.
