Pixi 15th Anniversary Polish... Crystal Champagne!

we are heading to visit my grandmother tomorrow to celebrate her 90th birthday! i thought it would be so perfect to post Pixi's polish celebrating their 15th birthday today :D the manicure i'm sharing today is what i'll be wearing to her little get together... it's perfect party polish!

the Pixi 15th Anniversary polish is called Crystal Champagne. (this is a press sample, kindly provided to me for review!). it's a glitter bomb, chock full of gold micro-glitter and pink hex glitter... that all comes together to form a gorgeous rose gold look. it makes it look like you have rose gold gilt nails :D i really love how it looks over Pixi Almond Glow (also a press sample!)... it's like the two were made for each other! one coat gives lots of coverage, i think this is one you could get opaque on its own fairly easily... i prefer to layer glitters over polishes, though. one huge reason is that it makes removal easier :) i highly recommend adding a high shine topcoat to seal everything in, and also makes the glitters shine shine shine!

quick side note... this glitter really holds up to punishment! i went horseback riding last night, which takes a huge toll on my nails (all the grooming and tacking up is a lot to ask from regular polish!). i only had one piece of glitter flake off at the tip of one nail... and the base polish was undisturbed! since it was the busted ring finger nail, i think i might not have gotten it with topcoat as well i should have :)

one coat Crystal Champagne topped with one coat Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat , both over Pixi Almond Glow! any darkness you see in the swatch is reflection... this polish is so shiny it was impossible to keep all the reflections out :D it's far more beautiful and shiny in person... i just couldn't capture the beauty with my camera!




these polishes retail for $8. you can find Pixi products at Target stores, www.Target.com, and www.PixiBeauty.com!! Almond Glow and Crystal Champagne are both limited edition shades that will only be available at PixiBeauty.com while supplies last... so make sure to order soon if they are something you're interested in :) this is the direct link to the Pixi Beauty Nail Colour page!

hope you all have fantastic weekends! Ria :)
