How many purple neon polishes does one peep need?
It we're talking about me, then ALL of them! LOL
I did a purple neon comparison last year in November &
I guess I subconsciously needed to make it an annual thing.
So here we go...
Da line up: Color Club Mrs. Robinson, Finger Paints Pop Art Purple,
Kleancolor Grape Burst, Sinful Colors Dream On
& Color Club Peace Out Purple
2 coats each of: p ~ Mrs. Robinson, r ~ Pop Art Purple,
m ~ Grape Burst, I ~ Dream On & t ~ Peace Out Purple.
In da bottle they all look pretty much the same.
On da nail 4 out of 5 look pretty similar, similar enuf that you don't really need all of them unless you're a polish ho with a neon purple obsession like me. LOL
The stand out was Peace Out Purple. It's slightly lighter & it's a jelly where da others are crèmes. (me thinks a jelly sandwich is in my future!)
Dream On stands out from da others by drying to a semi-matte finish t
hat isn't uncommon with neons.
So that's it? Yeah, right...like I could just leave my nails like this?
I decided to go for a 2fer by comparing a bunch of flakie polishes.
right hand line up: Nfu Oh 37, Nubar 2021, Color Club Snow-Flakes,
Essie Shine of the Times & Sephora by OPI Hollywood If I Could
1 coat each: p ~ 37, r ~ 2010, m ~ Snow-Flakes, I ~ Shine of the Times & t ~ HWIIC
2010, Snow-Flakes & Shine of the Times are all what I call fire flakies
cuz they show mostly red with some gold & orange.
They are so close I'm thinking I may not need all 3 of them.
37 is a mix of colors & more of shifting topper.
HWIIC is iridescent bar glitter.
Both are fun & very different from each other.
Left hand line up: Nicole by OPI Heavenly Angel, Kleancolor Sugar Coat,
Nabi Clear Round Glitter, China Glaze Luxe & Lush
& Disney Night Before Christmas Zero
1 coat each: t ~ Heavenly Angel, I ~ Sugar Coat, m ~ CRG, r ~ Lux & Lush & p ~ Zero
HA is a mix of many colors of flakie shreds,
SC is asst iridescent shapes & so is CRG,
Luxe & Lush is more of a true flakie with the colors being more copper & gold,
& Zero wins da cutest bottle award, but the large flakie shards are sparse
& hard to fish out. I may have to franken that one to make it usable.
Da winner is...Nicole by OPI Heavenly Angel!
I added a 2nd coat of this polish to all nails so they looked more homogenous,
followed by a coat of Seche Vite.
My nails were SO sparkly that I left this mani on for a whole week!
That & I had camp prep to do & didn't have time to change my polish. LOL
If you only want to own one flakie-esque topper
that will go with many colors of polish,
Heavenly Angel is a good choice!
Thanks for stopping by!
