I love glitters, and it's only a bonus if they're holographic. So I've collected a few polishes that look quite alike. I decided to compare them to see how alike they really are.
1. China Glaze - Fairy Dust
2. Inglot - 201
3. Viva la Diva - 72
4. Orly - Prima Gloss Silver
5. Wet n Wild - Kaleidoscope
|China Glaze: Fairy Dust, Inglot: 201, Viva la Diva: 72, Orly: Prima Gloss Silver, Wet n Wild: Kaleidoscope|
They're all silver holographic glitters, and they all look pretty much alike. But let's see them swapped over a black crème, shall we?

The two that stand out from the others are Inglot and Wet n Wild, that have the strongest holo effect to them.It's funny that it's the most expensive and the cheapest of the bunch that separates themselves from the others.
The last pic shows the size and the density of the glitters. It's blurry to show the holo effect better.
As you can see, number 2 and 5 have the strongest holo - that's Inglot and Wet n Wild. Wet n Wild is also the polish with the biggest sized glitters.
The three others are as close to being dupes as they get, IMO.
Conclusion: If I was only allowed to buy one holographic glitter, I'd go for the cheapest, namely Wet n Wild.
But hey - a girl can never have too many holographic glitters! :)
Which one would you prefer?
