What I Used:
- 1 coat of Zoya Anchor Base Coat
- 2 coats of Zoya Arabella
- 1 coat of Zoya Armor Top Coat
According to Zoya: Arabella can be best described as a rich fuchsia pink in a matte, textured, sparkling finish.
Arabella is very pink and very pretty! It's bit on the purplish side of magenta, which I really liked, since red leaning pinks aren't my favorite. It also has some hints of silver glitter.
It's a little thick, but smooth for the most part. Arabella is almost a one coater! However, I went with two coats to be on the safe side.
I was slightly disappointed with Arabella. It's not as sparkly as the other Pixie Dusts, and it's a bit smoother. I've grown to love the bumpy feel of them, so I missed that. However, it looks like lumpy oatmeal which was strange.
No chips, no peeling! I did start to notice tip wear after about a week, and after ten days it was quite obvious. I'd say it's the most obvious tip wear of any of the others from this collection that I've tried.
Final Score: 8.75
