Pixi Summer Sunset

i feel like such a goober because i keep forgetting to put the new laces in my riding boots! i'm hoping the broken one doesn't bust completely while i'm riding... but since i wear half chaps over my boots, it shouldn't be too dramatic even if it does break.

today's polish is Pixi Summer Sunset from their Summer 2013 shades (kindly provided to me for review!). it's a saturated orangey-red that is shot through with subtle golden shimmers! it has a hint of jelly in the finish, which adds depth, but also means it's a touch sheer. i used three coats which left a touch of visible nail line on some nails if you look really closely... but not enough to bother me at all. two coats actually gave great coverage, and if i wasn't swatching and taking pictures, i would have stuck with two! it dries nice and glossy on its own, i added topcoat to help it dry faster :)

three coats Summer Sunset, one coat Seche Vite.

Pixi is available online at PixiBeauty.com and Target.com, as well as in Target stores, retailing for $8!

come back tomorrow for the last polish in Pixi's Summer 2013 colors! Ria :)

:: this polish was sent to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::


  1. This is a pretty color!

  2. I keep passing by the Pixi polishes at Target not knowing how'd they apply, but now I think I need this color!

  3. This is beautiful on you. I admire your horse riding abilities! Go girl! May we ever see a picture of you aboard your horsie, so those of us who never got a pony can live vicariously through you?

    You are a California girl, right?

    1. aww thanks! i will add a picture in a post next week :D

      yup, i live in Monterey, Cali!

    2. Awesome, I am north of SF, in Santa Rosa : ) Monterey how wonderful, I would love to see the sights there sometime, I understand the beauty of that area is unsurpassed : ) It is very beautiful here too, that is just one more reason I love it here so much : )

  4. This polish is very pretty. I love that shimmer. I need this one soon.


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
