Wet & Wild Nail Polish in Night Prowl (US$0.99)
I spotted this while browsing at Walgreens & was tempted to get it. I resisted for the whole of five minutes before I grabbed it. It’s purple & glittery. Enough said 😀
This is a pretty purple glitter that has a black jelly base.
This is three coats with no top coat.
It does look a little gritty but I expect that with most glitters. This is something that a top coat like Seche will fix 😀
Someone on MUA (makeupalley) posted her swatches of China Glaze Awakening Collection’s Mummy May I & I noticed that it looked very similar to WnW Night Prowl. I conferred with her (she has both), & she reported that they are very similar except that China Glaze Mummy May I has bigger glitter particles. So for those of you on a budget, looks like you only need to have one of the two!
*This is purchased by me. You can find it at any drugstore that sells Wet & Wild.
I think it’s the nature of the beast that there are only a number of possible color combinations that there are bound to be overlaps at times. This is one of those times.
OPI recently released Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous in its Swiss collection & China Glaze released Jitterbug in its Vintage Vixen collection. Both looks very similar & being a glitter fan, I had to get it despite them looking similar.
Once swatched, you can see a very slight difference. OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous is always on the left while China Glaze Jitterbug is on the right.
One coat with no top coat.
These are two coats with no top coat.
As you can see, OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous looks a tad warmer with a slight gold tone while China Glaze Jitterbug is a cooler silver tone. Without swatching them side by side, I doubt you can really tell the difference. So depending on which skintone you are, you probably only need one of these 😀
*These were purchased by me for me. You can obtain them at Ulta, Sally’s Beauty or any store that sells OPI & China Glaze.
Lip Gloss Dupes?
So I was doing a blog review of Bare Escentual Wearable Berry & Wine glosses & lipliners when I was reminded of how much I love the color of the Wearable Berry. Since I rounded up most of my glosses recently (to be reviewed/purged/kept), I decided to start swatching them 😀
As you can see, none of them is a exact dupe 😦 Revlon Colorstay Mineral LipGlaze – Forever Raisin 540 & NARS Dolce Vita probably came closest.
You are probably wondering why I want to have a dupe of a color I have already? *gives a Mona Lisa smile* I guess you just have to wait till tomorrow to know. 😀
