Zoya Chyna

Zoya Chyna is another color from the first Pixie Dust collection.  It's a beautiful ruby red with red glitter, which is similar in idea to ChG Ruby Pumps in the bottle, but dries matte with the red glitter peeking through.  I've had problems with these Pixie Dusts drying, so I did a Poshe sandwich here - I applied 2 coats of Chyna, then a coat of Poshe, then 2 more coats of Chyna, and dry time was much improved.  The only down side of this that I see is that it doesn't dry as matte as it did when I swatched it on a nail wheel, which disappoints me, but I don't know if that is directly related to the Poshe.  Application was great - very easy to control, nice brush, nicely pigmented, but I did notice I needed to shake the bottle before use as the glitter seems to want to settle at the bottom of the bottle.  A nice classic color - with a twist!  Enjoy -     >^..^<
