Zoya Destiny Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “coral metal sparkle” with a Pixie Dust finish. It’s a warm-toned, coral-orange with gold sparkle and shimmer with a sparkly, textured finish. It’s this finish that makes it hard to dupe (at least for the moment!), and while looking through corals for something that at least had the shimmer/sparkle factor, there wasn’t much! Zoya Myrta is all orange and less sparkly. Nubar Sun Gold is a duochrome that goes from gold to copper with a coral-hued base, so it has a similar “feel” in a way, but it’s just not enough to be a dupe. Zoya Tanzy has a lot of sparkle and glitter, but it’s more metallic, more orange, less of a coral.

I’ve found some of the Pixie Dust polishes to be mostly opaque in two, but Destiny is one that does need the three thin coats as Zoya recommends (and since they clearly state that, it’s totally fine!). It seemed rather opaque to me when I was photographing, but once I opened the photos, I was able to see a hint of visible nail line. Without a top coat, it’s textured, sparkling, and a mixture of matte and metallic. With a top coat, it looks like a shiny, sparkling coral. I like that you can get to two distinct looks out of it, and the top coat doesn’t impair the way it looks or behaves. Zoya’s Pixie Dust formula wears incredibly (and impressively) well for a full seven days with no chipping and only minor tip wear–and the tip wear is more like it dusting off at the edge, but it’s not as noticeable as normal tip wear.
