Rhiannon can be described as a vibrant icy blue, with microfine holographic, aqua and white glitter.

Since I got this set I have been watching all the reviews on youtube, there seems to be real issues with the glitters, several reviews have reported slow dry time and a very *sticky* formula.

Rhiannon for me has an ok formula, it doesnt run or pool, however, it does seem *sticky*, the brush has splayed out like the normal round brush used to do in a pixie dust, I just wonder if this formula is the issue, prior to these Zoya didnt really do glitter polishes, the last pure glitters they did were in 2009 Nova, Roxy and Luna in the Ultra Glitter collection, I own Nova and Roxy and the glitters in those fall to bottom of the bottle and require a long shake before wearing.

I'm probably never going to wear these are full manicures due to the sticky formula, they work as toppers though.  Rhiannon took about 30 minutes to fully dry two coats.  I wouldnt want to wear this if I needed a quick out the door manicure. 

I really dont understand why they didnt make these pixie dusts, just because no-one else is doing them, does not mean we polish addicts dont want them.  I for one adore my pixie dusts, they are my go to when I'm travelling or about to do something rough with my hands. They're usually one or two coats, they dry fast and they are tough to chip.

I am so disappointed, the actual colours of the glitters are gorgeous, the colours are so bright and fun but oh man the formula is awful.

The last photo shows the brush of Chita a pixie dust with the original round brush and Rhiannon with the z wide brush.


  1. Oh, what a shame! :( I heard that too, about the stickiness and requiring thinner. It's a shame because they're such pretty colours! Was the 30 minutes with dry drops? And interesting about the brush—they almost look the same!

    1. No I keep meaning to order the dry drops then forget lmao! I just sat at my PC watching a video. I have seen from Zoya Instagram that they are bringing back the Beachy Brights but in full size with a new yellow and Marisol from last years polish of the month :D So excited! as I wanted those Beachy Brights but not those mini bottles.

    2. Oh, cool!!! :D That is exciting! I wonder what the yellow is :)
