There is something so festive about these three Pixi Beauty nail polishes that I couldn’t wait to get outdoors to photograph them. If you knew me, you’d know I’m not really an outdoor kind of woman. I prefer sitting in the shade looking at the nice summer weather. Pixi Beauty sent these along to share with readers since summer is the time when you can get away with these bright and happy colors.
I took the three polishes with me on a recent trip to my nail tech and we played to see which would look the best on my skintone. I chose Lime Lustre even though I knew that my husband would have picked Oh So Orange. Since I wear a polish for a solid week I wanted one that I’d smile at every day and Lime Lustre was the choice.
Lime Lustre is a cream polish that applied beautifully. There was no pooling in my cuticles and it leveled perfectly with the second coat. There’s a sheen to Lime Lustre that isn’t in the other two and I know that’s what drew me to this shade.
If you look at the bottle above you can see what I mean about the sheen. It makes Lime Lustre have a luster that I enjoyed looking at.
Sizzling Sunshine is a beautiful yellow shade. I don’t really like my hands in yellow but I’m going to use this for dotting soon to liven up other manicures.
Oh So Orange is ohhhh so orange. It’s a neon orange that is really beautiful. This is the kind of color you should be wearing on your toes in the summer. It would make you giddy!!
What’s important to know is that these little gems are only $8 and they wear beautifully. The color was absolutely true for my 7 days of wear. A tiny bit of tip wear (and I type all day long) and typical growth were the only ways you could tell this wasn’t a fresh manicure.
And to make it even more fun, Lime Lustre matches my Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Emerald Glow. Now it’s more than double the pleasure – it’s triple.
Have you had any Pixi fun in your life lately? If not get to Target and check out the display or go online to Pixi Beauty and pick out some fun summer shades. I can tell you that Lime Lustre and Oh So Orange are especially fun for mani or pedi time. — Marcia
