Today I want to show you two little dinosaurs – Orly’s Pixie Dust and a good old Pentium II processor. Great combination, isn’t it? :)
The polish is from my collection, and the processor is a part of Dennis’ computer stuff collection. Do you know how old they are?… Pixie Dust was released with Orly’s Once Upon A Time collection of nail polishes for Fall 2009. As for Pentium II, it was introduced in May of 1997. Unfortunately I cannot show you what’s inside this cute black box, as Dennis only took off its cooling system and left the processor unopened for some mysterious reason.
Pixie Dust is a light grey cream with blue undertones and lots of tiny silver flakes. I’m not sure how to call the polish – it doesn’t look like shimmer to me, but it’s not a glitter either. The formula however is great to work with, the coverage is opaque in 2 medium coats.

The glassy flakes are big enough to be visible in the daylight, and they look even brighter in the sun:
Have a closer look at the silver shimmer:
This polish is perfect for winter months. The light grey color reminds me of cold misty sky and the shimmer is like tiny falling snowflakes, fascinating to look at.
