Orly Pixy Stix

A confession: I think I have more untrieds than trieds in my nail polish stash. Does that make me feel guilty? *ponders* Not really! I am unrepentant. XD I will however, attempt to wear every single polish from my last haul before I start in on the new hauls that are in transit (Quirius, yay!) or in the works (guess who just found out Zoya is including Hawaii in this year's polish exchange?).

Anyhow, that's not what you're here for! From this year's Sweet Spring collection:

Orly Pixy Stix, morning sun

Sometimes in my fascination with blues, greens and purples I don't give the whole pink/coral/red end of the spectrum enough love. And love it I do! Especially red, but we'll talk about that later. This is two coats of Pixy Stix and it was easy-peasy to apply. (No clean-up required! I know I'm getting better at application, but troublesome polishes still give me difficulty keeping clean!) I had good coverage in two coats and at first I thought it was going to be too thick, but the second coat settled very nicely and evenly. Pixy Stix is the perfect name for this polish. All day long I thought about candy and I took a certain delight is telling people who asked that I had Pixy Stix on my nails! =D


  1. I'm not too mad about the color, but your nails look incredible. =D

  2. @nihrida Thanks! I'm late replying, but happy you got the package safely XD

  3. It's such a soft and bright color, if that makes sense, lol!

  4. I have more untrieds too! The day when I have to get new polishes because I don't have any untrieds left will be interesting.

    Pretty color. I should have bought this instead of Chine Glaze - Something Sweet. I hated that polish! And I really love pinks!

  5. i also have more untrieds that trieds. oh well! this one is in my untrieds pile. shoot!

  6. @Rhea Makes complete sense to me!

    @Sarah I don't think I'll ever run out of untrieds, lol. But I am going to try to get through at least *this* haul, for once. =)

    @jbrobeck We'll just have to keep chipping away at that pile! Maybe this will inspire you to try Pixy Stix =)

  7. Your nails are so pretty and I really like this color on you!
