Carter is from the Zoya Fall Pixiedust collection of 2013. As you can see, it's a beautiful and rich purple texture with an amazing pink sparkle. The color is so pigmented and just downright perfect. It's easily the prettiest texture I own. I can't stop staring at it. I have literally no complaints whatsoever about the formula. I went into expecting to have some problems with it because I had heard that it dries slow and that it's sheer. It did take a while to dry but I also put on coats that were somewhat thick. Still, I wasn't as impatient as I normally am when waiting for my polish to dry. I busied myself and before I knew it my nails were completely dry. As for sheerness, I didn't experience that with Carter. My first coat wasn't fully opaque but the second coat made it all better. Another bonus was that I had almost no clean up.
If you're a purple lover and you happen to be as equally in love with textures, you're missing out if you don't already have Carter. Go and get yourself a bottle! I normally would show it with some top coat but I am planning to show you an amazing indie glitter topper over it, which I'll be posting soon.
Now because I'm feeling nostalgic, here are some pictures of Carter over the past year. The last one is the most recent. For some reason that I don't understand, my dog has now developed a fear of having his picture taken but I managed to get that shot of him, but from far away. Usually once the camera comes out, he runs away.
I almost get sad just looking at these pictures because my baby's gotten so big! Okay, I'm done being all gushy and emotional. I hope you're having a great week so far! I'm going to be busy working over the next few days but I have some scheduled posts which will be up very soon.
