I can’t remember what group it was but someone asked for a comparison of these two polishes. Since I happened to have the both of them, I polished one hand with Apophis and one hand with Mirabilis. In this photo above, Apophis is the top hand, and Mirabilis the bottom. Continue reading
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Purple Matte Sparkle, 3 coats on pointer and ring fingers [previously swatched]
OPI Ink. Suede, 2 coats on pinky finger
Wet N Wild Happy Hour Hop, 3 coats on middle finger [previously swatched]
Another comparison for you! I hope you find these helpful, I always like to know when a polish comes out that might be a duplicate (dupe) for an older (not available anymore) polish.
Today I’m comparing Purple Matte Sparkle to Happy Hour Hop to Ink. Suede. As you can see, no dupes here! The WnW is way more sheer than I remember. And the OPI stains. So I would definitely choose the BHB – especially at the price point!
So when I swatched the Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Matte Sparkle polishes, I pulled out some other polishes for comparison. For today’s post, I pulled out OPI Russian Navy Suede.
They are very similar, but the OPI has a silvery base where the BHB has a golden base. The base to the OPI also seems more tightly packed with the silvery base, or maybe the particles are larger? The good thing about the BHB though is that it doesn’t stain like the OPI! 😀
Sinful Colors Kylie Trend Matters Konstellation [previously swatched], 2 coats
Geesh, the title of this is a flippin’ mouthful, isn’t it? In a Facebook group I’m in, there was a suggestion to compare this Blackheart Beauty to an older Sinful Colors. Let’s see how they compare in the bottle!
So obviously, they look really close, maybe the BHB a little darker?
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Capricorn from the Zodiac nail polish collection (previously swatched), 2 coats and no top coat, pointer finger
OPI German-icure, 2 coats and no top coat, middle finger
OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest, 2 coats and no top coat, ring finger
OPI Midnight in Moscow, 2 coats and no top coat, pinky finger
So when I was swatching the Zodiac nail polish collection from Hot Topic’s Blackheart Beauty line, I thought that Capricorn looked familiar. I went through my OPI polishes and pulled out three I thought looked similar. Continue reading
So while I was swatching the new Zodiac nail polishes from Hot Topic (still no luck with the Sagittarius though!), I thought that Virgo looked really familiar! I decided to pull out my bottle of OPI We’ll Always Have Paris Suede and do a little comparison.
In the bottle, they look super similar, right? The BhB is a little cooler and silvery than the OPI. Continue reading
Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are having a good weekend so far. Today I’m back with another comparison post! I discovered recently that I actually really enjoy doing these so if you have suggestions for comparison posts, please comment. Okay, but today I have Vapid Lacquer Cyber Punk versus Great Lakes Lacquer The Centre Cannot Hold. (I will be showing these off individually at a later date, just not today. Too many photos as it is!)
First some bottle shots! Cyber Punk seems more pink in the bottle than TCCH. TCCH seems to more easily shift in the bottle than CP. Now let’s take a look at each on the nail! Continue reading
