I’ve recently started adding all my swatches onto the Facebook page and I’ve had some requests to do comparisons. The first one I am doing is one (or apparently two) of my favourites. The three colours I am comparing are:
Sinful Colors – See You Soon
Essence – Miss Universe
Tip Top – Stormy Sky
From these photos I can already tell that Sinful Colors – See You Soon will probably not be very similar to the other two. Are the others very similar though? Let’s see when they are closer together.
Here it is pretty obvious that Sinful Colors – See You Soon is not similar to the others. It has the same blackened base but perhaps a bit darker and also with less / smaller glitter. Essence – Miss Universe and Tip Top – Stormy Sky seem much more similar. Miss Universe seems to have a bit more green glitter than Stormy Sky and Stormy Sky seems to have a bit more silver glitter than Miss Universe. Honestly, this is much more evident on the photo than it is in real life. In real life they look almost identical. Both the Essence and the Tip Top look like they dry to a texture but they don’t. I think it is just how the glitter looks. Sinful Colors dried super smooth and shiny.
**Update** All of these are two coats with no topcoat. In my opinion the Tip Top – Stormy Sky is most opaque (almost a one coater) but all three are opaque – for me – in two coats.**
In my opinion, If you have one you don’t NEED the other. The Sinful Colors – See You Soon is very pretty. Especially if you like the darker colours but want something that isn’t black. The Tip Top is from the Nail Addict range and is available at selected Foschini store, the essence is available at Dischem or Clicks and the Sinful Colors is available at Clicks or selected Ackermans.
