No. ARP is layer 2, and unless you segregate the network into multiple
broadcast domains, or implement other controls on your switches,
you're doing nothing to prevent or limit ARP poisoning. It makes no
difference what IP or subnet you're using, if I'm on the same
broadcast domain as you and your switch doesn't prevent it, I can ARP
poison you.
