Comparison: Rainbow WnW Glitters

Wet n Wild Rainbow glitters

Just a quick comparison post of Wet n Wild's Party of Five Glitters and the new On The Prowl Correction Tape. At first glance in bottle, they are very similar, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...

Comparison: Purples with glitters and flakes

Purple Compares...

So I bought Revlon Royal Cloak and decided to compare it to some other Revlon purples as well as Butter London No More Wait-ey Katie...none of them really look alike at all, but you can see what they look like compared to each other :)

Royal Cloak, No More Wait-ey Katie, Grape Fizz and Not So Blueberry

Comparison: Orange Glitters in black base.....

Orange Polishes in black base comparison

So I have 4 polsihes to compare in this post. They are all orange glitters in black bases. The first is a pumpkin polish with no name but lotsa beauty, then we have Wet n Wild Cougar Attack, Sally Hansen Pumpkin Spice and a Franken created by Laurie called Gypsie Bries. Enjoy the show!

Order of polishes in picture are the order they are on my fingers.

Comparison: Red Glitters in black base.....

Red Glitters with Black Base Comparison

So for this comparison, I have Love & Beauty Red (on a black base-WnW Ink Well), NYX Dorthy and Wet n Wild Behind Closed Doors. These are all black based red glitters, with the exception of L&B Red, it is in a clear base. Here come the first!

Butter London Wallis Dupe - Love & Beauty Safari

Butter London Wallis Dupe:
Love & Beauty Safari

So I found a very good dupe of Butter London Wallis for those of you who don't want to spend the $$ on Wallis.  Not much to say, so I'll let the pictures do the talking. You can find Love & Beauty Safari at Forever XXI for about $3 or so...enjoy!

Wallis is Index/Ring; Safari is Middle/Pinky

The Stash....

So I finally cataloged my stash and bought some melmers. I started off with just one melmer...and well, immediately went back and bought a second and already need a 3rd. I will post pics of the single melmer drawers before I show you the end result with two ;)

First here are my 3 drawers when I had just one you can see, I was maxed out. You can see why I had to go by a second immediately.

a england Percival

 I was sent a england Percival to review from llarowe!! So without further is Percival!

First let me say WOW. This polish not only applied flawlessly in one single coat, it is BEAUTIFUL. I received both Avalon and Percival to review from llarowe and I though Avalon would be my favorite, but Percival won me over. It has a metallic, almost slightly shimmery finish that I could not capture well in pictures.

I also did a comparison to OPI I'm Not Really a Waitress (INRAW). Scroll to the bottom for that comparison video. While they are VERY close in color and shade, INRAW just doesn't have the same finish that Percival does. After reviewing these two polishes, Lady of the Lake and Tristam just LEAPED to the top of my want list....I want them bad.

If you would like me to do a comparison of Percival to another red, check my stash list and leave me a message if I have it. I'll be more than happy to update the blog with more comparisons. I think INRAW is the closest red I have to Percival but I wouldn't give up either.

a england Avalon

I am finally getting this blog up! I was sent a england Avalon to review from llarowe and after a weekend with no power and the following workweek from hades, I'm finally getting caught up on my blogs! So here it is, a england Avalon.

So I will say first off, I don't think this is a duochrome, yet it CLEARLY changes from Blue to Purple based on the warmth of the lighting you are in! I was not expecting that. You can see the changes not only in my pictures below, but in my video at the end of this blog. I was comparing Avalong to HRH by Butter London, which looked VERY similar to me....until I tried comparing them on was almost like Avalon decided to throw a monkey wrench into my comparison and turn blue right in front of me! Is this polish blue? Is it purple? It is both! I'll let the pictures and videos speak for themselves.

As for the technical aspect, it went on pretty well and easily. I almost could have gotten by with one coat but had a few drag spots that were too thin. It has a very nice finish (no top coat below) and I really enjoy watching to see what color it will be when I look at it, lol.

I personally look at this on my nails and I instantly want to stamp something on top because it looks like the perfect palette for it! So smooth and perfect!
