Hey everyone! So last weekend, I did a comparison of ILNP The Magician to Baroness X Sir Cockicorn. While I had all my unicorn pee polishes out, I decided to do two massive comparison posts. Today’s post is going to compare Darling Diva Polish Ringer Goes Blonde, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn, ILNP The Magician, and Baroness X Fire Opal. Just to warn you, I have a lot of photos in today’s post!
From left to right: Darling Diva Ringer Goes Blonde, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn, ILNP The Magician, Baroness X Fire Opal.
As far as differences in the bottles: obviously Fire Opal is in a pink tinted base; The Magician is in a lighter base; Ringer Goes Blonde (RGB) and Sir Cockicorn are close but RGB seems to have more of a green shift. In the following photos, I’ve used a variety of lighting sources: in my “lightbox” area, under OTT Lite, and indirect natural light.
I’ve used 1 coat plus top coat over 2 coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather. Pointer finger is RGB, Middle finger is Sir Cockicorn, Ring finger is The Magician, and Pinky finger is Fire Opal.
RGB seems to be the densest as far as how tightly packed the particles are on the first coat, followed by Fire Opal (which makes sense because this has double the unicorn pee pigment), then The Magician, then Sir Cockicorn.
RGB also seems to be the one that shifts colors the easiest.
Now that I’ve brought these out to play, I’ve fallen back into love with RGB. If you have this one, it is a treasure and you should hoard it accordingly. Sir Cockicorn and Fire Opal will be back for The X Army (Baroness X fb fan group) members only, so be sure to join [edit: I believe the group is closed to new members right now but should be opening back up next week]. The Magician, I believe, is no longer available unfortunately.
Okay – your thoughts? Which one do you like the best? Be sure to check back next week for another unicorn pee polish comparison post!
