Holographic Glitters Comparison

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.

I've chosen: 
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?

CG, Inglot, VlD, Orly, WnW

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?

  1. Wow I'm quite impressed by the WnW! I have the china glaze and I love it for a subtle effect but that WnW might have to be mine as I don't think I've got any other holo in clear.

    1. I was also impressed with Wet n Wild - mostly because I actually bought that bottle to franken with, but now it goes back into the regular stash :) Great polish to a great price, even here :D

    2. Det der er sjovt er, at jeg ikke ville have blive overrasket hvis de var pænere jo dyrere de var. Wet n Wild var en overraskelse.
      Og tak. Jeg havde lyst til at lave lidt andet :)
      Kh.

    1. Inglot is a cool brand indeed. They're just a bit too pricey for my likings. :)

  5. You can never have too many holo's! I love the look of them all but I haven't had a chance to pick any up I think holo's will be next on my list :)

    1. I didn't know either until recently where my supermarket decided to expand the W n W polishes a bit. Yay for that!

  9. I love the Wet n Wild polish! It's gorgeous :D It's incredible how the cheapest one stands as much out as the most expensive one.

    1. I must admit that it surprised me as well. Once the Inglot bottle is empty it probably won't be replaced (unless I happen to be on vacation in Poland), but the W n W will definitely be replaced when empty :)

    1. The one I use the least is actually the Inglot one. There's no particular reason for that, other than it's in the bottom box. :D

  13. Great comparison! The Inglot is gorgeous but not something easy for me to get--fortunately I have the Wet 'n' Wild to distract me. :)

    1. Inglot is very expensive here. I believe the price is at least four or five times the Wet n Wild - so I'll go for the Wet n Wild in future too :)
