Comparing Zoya Pixie Dust Pinks

Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails

Here’s another Zoya Pixie Dust Comparison

I was recently asked from one of my readers to compare Arabella and Miranda.  Both shades of pink from 2 different Pixie Dust Collections.

Arabella from the Fall 2013 PixieDust Collection and Miranda from the Summer 2013 Pixie Dust Collection.

(Product links can be found at the bottom of this post)


I noticed that I had already reviewed both colors.. but never compared the two!  So instead of waiting until Monday to post this review, I figured.. i’d add a lil’ review in honor of Throwback Thursday….

(The pictures of my nails are from my previous posts and the side by side polishes I snapped last night.)

Here’s what I discovered about the two.  Both are definite shades of pink.. (obvi)  but… Miranda has a dusty rose tone with a gorgeous sugar sparkle where as Arabella leans more towards the plum/fuschia side and although both are textured polishes, Arabella lacks the luster and sugar sparkle that Miranda has.

Arabella and Miranda are both opaque after the first coat.  Needing max. 2 coats.  No base coat or top coat.

Miranda’s color lasts w/0 fading, where as Arabella tends to dull after the 3rd day…

So.. depending on what you’re aiming for…  If you’re looking for sugar coated Rose colored candied  nails then Miranda’s your Go-2 for Pixie Dust.  If you’re looking for a brighter pink/fuschia textured polish then you’ll want to pick up Arabella.  Just note.. if Arabella starts to fade, apply 1 coat of clear top coat (Seche Vite) to bring back the shine.

I would have to say.. my #1 favorite between the two would  be Miranda 100%

Hope this comparison helped clarify the difference between these two shades of textured pinks!  Let me know if you have any questions about the polishes mentioned or just want to say HI!  😉
