It’s the first day of summer – go green!
Kick up your heels, and indulge your nails in Zoya Cece from the Seashells Collection. It’s the lime zest that gives your manicure a zing like sipping on a refreshing, cold mojito at a patio party!
With its fine PixieDust finish, Zoya Cece comes to life with a burst of matte citrus sparkle and a fun texturized finish.
This is a great green to wear because it is lively and has delicate gold woven into the mix. Together, the colourful duo is a match made in leprechaun heaven, but don’t wait until St. Patrick’s Day to pull this treasure out!

Zoya Cece Review
Cece by Zoya has citrus written all over it with a personality that leaps from your nails like a frolicking frog!
The predominant mojito green adds vibrancy to the overall aesthetics, and accenting it is gold, which is thrown in for good measure. This combination is a leprechaun classic, and it’s one of my favourites to wear.
Although the textured nail trend isn’t a new one, I still love rocking it. I love how it’s a different take on nail polish, giving it a slight edge.
While it’s gritty, the texture isn’t sharp or scratchy. But if you really dislike any texture, you can always apply two coats of your favourite glossy top coat to smooth it out. This will transform it into a typical glittery polish.
I prefer wearing textured polishes solo, as I’m a bit of a PixieDust purist. I feel that it makes for a more unique manicure, but as with all nail polishes, wear them however you see fit. Your happiness while wearing a nail lacquer is more important than hard and fast ‘rules.’ Make your own rules! 🙂
Application & Formula
Aligned with all the Zoya PixieDust nail polishes that I’ve tried over the years, this one’s no exception. It is very pigmented, easy to apply, and I only needed to use two coats to get full coverage.
Also, it dried very quickly, and since you can skip the usual base and top coat, Cece by Zoya makes an excellent choice for when you need a quick, fresh manicure, but you don’t have tons of time before rushing out the door. (Zoya PixieDust nail polishes are always my go-to for that last-minute quick fix.)
Although it has a lot of texture, you won’t be scrubbing your poor fingers raw when it comes time to remove it. That’s another perk I appreciate that typical glitter polishes don’t have.
Zoya Cece doesn’t contain any Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, DBP, or Camphor. Also, Zoya’s nail polishes are vegan-friendly.
Final Verdict: 9/10
Zoya Cece is an excellent choice for fellow green nail-polish fans who love sparkle and texture. Plus it dries exceptionally fast, which means a fresh manicure is mere minutes away!
Would you wear Zoya Cece as a full manicure, or would you use it for an accent nail only? What’s your go-to nail polish when you need to be out the door fast?
