This week is flying again. I can’t believe it is Wednesday already! Downhill to weekend right? I got a few requests to do some comparisons so once again I decided to put both into one post.
The first one is Zoya – Godiva vs LA Girl – Sands of Time. This is more specifically a colour comparison.
It’s pretty obvious that these two are not exactly the same. Zoya – Godiva is much finer and LA Girl – Sands of Time has got bigger hex glitter in it. On the photo Godiva is also a more nude colour compared to the holder tone of Sand of Time. In real life though these look very similar in colour. Basically, if the photo was taken from further away I think the difference in colour would’ve been a little less obvious. I had this on my nails when my aunt popped in on Saturday and she said she loved the polish. When I asked her which one she was surprised to know they were different. When she looked closer she could see they were different but not from looking from a distance.
Next up is Sinful Colors – Unicorn vs Tip Top – Lemon Fuel
This comparison was very similar to the one before where while wearing it and looking from a distance the difference wasn’t as obvious but here you can see that Lemon Fuel is a bit more yellow than Unicorn. Lemon Fuel is also a bit more pigmented than Unicorn. They are definitely not the same but I also don’t think you need both. Unless you’re like me and absolutely must have anything with the word Unicorn in it. 😉 I actually do like both of these. They are both really easy to use as far as yellows go – especially pale / pastel yellows.
That’s all the comparisons for today. If you would like me to compare any specific polishes feel free to let me know in comments or email me. You can find a list of all my polishes under the ‘My Collection’ tab at the top. This post is short and sweet, mostly because the dog groomer is coming today and I need to get all 6 our dogs washed and the 2 long haired ones shaved. Please spare a thought for me and the chaos that will most likely be my day 😉 It is the first time we will be using this groomer and I hope she manages.
Thanks for reading!
Whoooo! Thank you fro the Lemon Fuel comparison M! Think I might just get Unicorn now! Also loving the Zoya and LA Girl comparison! Loving that a cheaper brand can also make such a kick-ass effect! Both are beautiful!

I agree. I think it’s a pretty close call and that is always good to see.

I like both yellows, the one is a bit more subtle but I would probably buy both because they’re still different in their own ways. Plus, like you said… Unicorn, who doesn’t want something called ‘Unicorn’?!
As for the Godiva – OMG, I have been lusting after this polish for so long. I need to get my butt into hear and get it! I personally don’t like texture polishes that are too gritty – the Sally Hansen ones are horrible!
Thanks Luzanne, yes who doesn’t want ‘Unicorn’? 😛 I do agree, I think they are a little different which means depending on the look, one of them will be perfect.
Godiva is beautiful! I must say the L.A Girl one is close call! I don’t mind the gritty texture as such but it mustn’t look like plastered wall. Which is what the Sally Hansen one looks like. ( I also think the brand is way overpriced here etc) I like the L.A Girl textures because the grit is a little finer than the ‘concrete’ sally’s and the formula doesn’t seem as thick. The Pixie textures are actually quite gritty even though the grit is fine. (does that even make sense :P)

You’re welcome 🙂
Just a pity Tip Top Lemon Fuel is now discontinued. The Zoya and La Girl matches pretty good in the photos too. If you don’t look carefully you wouldn’t even notice the difference.

Yes such a pity although I do still see a few around. I definitely agree, unless you pay really close attention, it isn’t very obvious. Thanks Lynette
How did the shaving go?
I second your statement of lemon fuel being easy to use especially seeing as it is 1. Yellow and 2. A pastel. If anyone reads this, YES MICHELLE IS RIGHT PEOPLE! GOT IT 😛
It took forever!!! but at least its done now. thanks 🙂
Hahaha thanks V. I love Lemon Fuel!
