Zoya Beatrix is from the PixieDust Summer Collection that features the amazing textured finish that I can’t seem to get enough of.
Combine the cool gritty texture with a fun, summery shade that reminds me of an orange popsicle, and you’ve clearly got a warm-weather winner here!
I’m a big fan of Zoya nail polish because they always put out a wide range of shades. It never seems like they’re afraid to experiment with colour. As a result, they come out with collections where there’s truly something for everyone.

Zoya Beatrix Review
Beatrix by Zoya is a fresh, zesty orange that reminds me more of the summer than of pumpkins during Hallowe’en.
It looks like an orange popsicle, except that it went through the Diva Processing Plant and came out with tons of glitter. 😉
The glitter is a lighter orange, which complements the tangerine orange. Together, you get an explosion of citrus personality!
This has the special Zoya PixieDust finish, which is matte and that has noticeable texture. It’s not sharp, but you can feel the intentional grittiness. I love this finish! I feel like it really helps the glitter to stand out even more.
You’re supposed to wear it without a top coat, but if you really want a shiny finish, you can. Just make sure that you apply more than one layer of top coat because Beatrix does eat polish.
Application & Formula
I got great coverage with just a single coat, but I applied a second coat to ensure complete opacity.
The thing I love about textured nail polish is that it dries really fast. Whenever I’m strapped for time, it’s perfect!
Final Verdict: 8/10
Wearing Zoya Beatrix was like wearing the sunshine on my nails, hehe, in the form of nail polish! How cool is that? 🙂
Once again, I feel as though Zoya knocked it out of the park with an amazing formula and a stunning colour!
Which is your favourite Zoya PixieDust polish? Do you want the textured-nail trend to last for years, or are your tired of it already?
