When textured nail polishes started and Zoya came out with their first seasonal PixieDust, I was sad I missed out on it. After some time, I decided to purchase the ones I wanted from their first seasonal PixieDust.

This is Vespa. Since I did a thorough review of Zoya PixieDust in Beatrix, I will base this on that.
Here's a closer look at the color and it's very true! The website describes it "as a mint kiss with a sugared sparkle."
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my perfect medium brush OPI, this is thinner and shorter. I would say this is more on the thin side of brushes.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X For Sephora Base Coat, and 2 coats of Zoya in Vespa.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm a huge fan of textured nail polishes. They're the most easiest polish to fix your errors and cover up your chips. I don't know if you're like me. When I make huge mistakes, I redo my nails. With textured polishes, you can just go over the area you made a mistake and it won't be noticeable with the human eyes. Also once it starts chipping, you can paint at the tips and it'll look brand new. With that said, Zoya in Vespa was easy to use. The consistency is in-between thin to medium. It made it easy to go slowly and carefully. I didn't feel rush to paint before it dries. Secondly, Vespa has a lot of silver sparkles. It looked gorgeous on the nails but it was hard to remove. It took some time but it was doable. Lastly, I was impressed with the longevity. It lasted 5 days before I notice some shrinkage at the tip of the nails.

Would repurchase: Maybe.
