Another super massive post, I know. I'm sorry.
1. Gold comparison
I wanted you to see Midnight Kiss and Jingle Bells side by side. I also added the other two polishes in golden/champagne color I have. Not my kind of shades...
I used 2 coats of each and as you can see, they're all different. I'm only keeping 2030, 'cause it's perfect for konading - and it's chrome. =) I *really* need to give away some of my polishes, I'm drowning in them.
2. Olive comparison
Peace on Earth immediately reminded me of some other polish in my collection - La Femme Beauty in Egyptian Gold. They're not exact dupes, but they're close enough for me.
2 coats of each. Which one do you like better?
3. Red shimmer comparison
Mommy Kissing Santa looked so pretty and it was already on my wishlist (before I knew ChG is sending me this collection). But now, that I've compared it to other red shimmers, it doesn't look that pretty anymore.
2 coats of each. And let me just say one thing - get Sinful Merlot. It's great!
4. Red creme comparison
Red cremes are classic and sexy, but they all look the same when you wear them, right?
Again ... 2 coats of each. I don't think I need all these...
5. Vampy comparison
These are all so dark, they look black most of the time. It's different when you stick your hand into the lightbox - just keep that in mind.
2 coats of each one more time.
6. White creme comparison
This one is not as much about color as it is about opacity and application. They're all white, that's obvious. But did you know that Color Club is the best? I keep hearing the best white is WnW, but it's actually the worst of these three.
I have to say that China Glaze didn't give me as much troubles with application like the first time I tried it. This time I got away with 2 coats. Of each. Color Club would still be my no. 1 pick (it's great for konading as well).
7. Silver foil comparison
I already did this comparison and I just can't get rid of all these too similar shades. One of these would be enough. I can't say which one is the best, because they're all 2 coaters and they all look pretty much the same. Pick your own favorite.
So, that's it. What do you think? Which are your favorites?
Thanks for looking!
