Pixi Nail Color for Summer 2013 ♥ Swatches and Review

pixi summer 2013

New for Summer 2013, Pixi is bringing us three “full spectrum of nail shades that withstand wear and tear while providing saturated color with a high gloss finish.”

This is my first time using this nail polish from brand, though I have often thought about picking a few of them up at Target.  (I have purchased other Pixi cosmetic items - they have such cute palettes!)  One of the things that held me back was the bottle shape - tall and thin with a long brush.  Little did I know that the bottle shape would be one of the things I liked about this brand!

Summer Sunset - What a gorgeous polish!  If you had told me 3 years ago that I would love a coral polish this much I would not have believed you!  It reminds me of a juicy papaya with a mesmerizing gold shimmer.  The formula was fantastic- thin up not at all runny, and very pigmented, only two coats required.  I am wearing this as a pedi right now!

Wakeup Wisteria - This polish makes me drool!  Wakeup Wisteria is a cool medium lilac.  The formula was a bit thin and streaky but evened out after the second coat.

Fluoro Flamingo - This shade is much more neon than my iPhone can capture!  If you don’t have a bubblegum pink neon crème in your collection, this is the one to pick up!

Have you purchased any Pixi polishes in the past?  I think I need to add more to my collection!  Please let me know your recommendations in the comments!
