NOTD: Pixi Beauty Nude Dazzle

Pixi has a new nail color for the month of November and it’s called Nude Dazzle. This shade is a gold silver foil like polish and gorgeous for the holidays. I used two coats and it was really easy to apply as are all Pixi nail polishes. They are some of my favorite nail polishes since they are really great quality.

This polish came out with Pixi's Holiday 2014 Collection. I also have swatches of a new eyeshadow palette and a lip balm trio.

Pixi Nude Dazzle retails for $8 and can be found exclusively online.
