China Glaze Dorothy Who? vs OPI Absolutely Alice

woohoo Friday! went to Ulta and had a great reason to avoid the grocery store... a surprise visit from one of my best friends! plus, my husband has a three day weekend... cheers to a fabulous weekend!

today we're comparing the blue glitters OPI Absolutely Alice and China Glaze Dorothy Who?. i layered them both over China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le. AA is a warm toned blue glitter that has gold glitter mixed in a clear base. DW? is a cool toned blue glitter with silver glitter in a blue jelly base. both only took one coat over SPWL to give a completely opaque look. you actually cannot even see that there is lighter color underneath the glitter! i do prefer DW? because i tend to go for cooler colors, and i definitely love silver more than gold! the blue jelly base does give more depth as well. i did have to GLOB on the Seche Vite to get the shiny glass look on both of them... that's my only complaint!

 here are a few shots showing the polishes at different focuses so you can see the colors of each glitter and then how much it sparkles... on to the swatches!

here's the close up... you can see how dense the glitters are!




and here we have the glimmer of the glitters...




and finally, check out that sparkle!




hope you enjoyed this comparison. i got so many new polishes today from brands that are all new to me, can't wait to get swatchin'! let me know what you guys would like to see next, spread my link around... and have a great weekend!!! Ria :)
