Pixi Polish: Swatches & Review - Part 2

You may remember that when I reviewed my first round of Pixi nail polishes, I was very impressed by the fresh, fun colors and excellent formulas. So naturally I was very excited to have a chance to share some more Pixi polishes with you all!

First up is Very Violet, a red-based neon purple creme. I could not get this color to photograph accurately with my camera, no matter what lighting I took shots in. (You know the nail blogging cliche about cameras and purple polish...) It shows up magenta on camera, but it's much more purple in real life. This was two coats.


Next we have Metallic Mermaid, a metallic teal. This polish is super shiny and reflective. It's such an amazing, rich color and I love watching the light hit it; it practically glows! This has zero frostiness to it, which is how I like my metallics, personally. Like with most metallics, you do have to watch where you place your brushstrokes a little bit, but otherwise the formula is fabulous. I used two coats here. Definitely check Metallic Mermaid out if you like teals! It's a stunner and pictures don't do it justice!


Last but not least is Luminous Lilac. I'd say this is more of a purple-leaning light pink than a true lilac, but it's very pretty just the same and has a beautiful silver microshimmer in it. Luminous Lilac is kind of like the little sister of one of my favorite pinks, OPI Pedal Faster Suzi. This was three coats.


I'm just as pleased with these polishes as I was with the ones from my first Pixi post. Metallic Mermaid was my favorite of the bunch, although all three are really lovely. The formula on these is excellent and very easy to work with. Pixi's debut polish collection already has some great colors in it and I cannot wait to see how they expand the line!

  3. I JUST had these in my hands yesterday at Target. I have a coupon from my Target Beauty Bag....now I wish I would have grabbed one. ...and the fact that you compared the lilac one to Pedal Faster Suzi makes me want it more because that is one of my favorite pinks!

    1. Luminous Lilac is in the same vein as Pedal Faster Suzi for sure--maybe not as glassfleck-y but they have the same kind of vibe to them. I highly recommend snagging at least one of their polishes next time you're back at Target, they're really great!

  5. As much as I've been on a blue kick lately, I may or may not pick up the metallic one, but holy moly I'm loving those other two!

    I'm going to have to look harder for these. I looked once at my local Target (which is huge and te cosmetics dept recently redone to be even bigger) and did not see them. I remember there were also some makeup items I had wanted to check out from this brand, though I'm guessing those were LE and long gone now.

    1. My local Target doesn't have a proper display for these polishes, they're in like a little hanging basket beside the actual Pixi display--cute, but kinda random. I've used a couple of their make-up items and I really like them! I have the eyeliner from the Tinkerbell collection and now I want more from that set.

  7. These are all very pretty! Metallic Mermaid is probably the stand out of the three in my opinion. It's perfect for summer! I really like Luminous Lilac too. It's very sweet looking.
