$OPI, Lynnderella, Lacquistry-A Comparison Post

I had an idea in my head to compare all of my multi-colored glitters over black.  Now, I KNOW that none of them really look like each other, but I just HAD to do a comparison anyway! I like to see how different people (companies) think when given the same set of instructions. Creativity is so vast and the term "multi-colored glitter" can mean anything to anybody!
So, today I have three multi-colored glitters for you. They will be in the same order in each picture set.
  • Sephora by OPI-Spark-tacular Top Coat
  • Lynnderella The Glittering Crowd
  • Lacquistry A Friggin' Circus
Sephora by OPI Spark-tacular Top Coat
Sephora by OPI Spark-tacular Top Coat has micro hex-glitters as well as medium hex-glitters.  There are more micro-glitters than any others.  The colors are more muted than the other two and it has a lot of silver.
Lynnderella The Glittering Crowd
Lynnderella The Glittering Crowd has over ONE HUNDRED different types of glitter.  There are bars, and hexes, squares, diamonds, and rounds.  The colors are much more vibrant than $OPI's multi-glitter.
Lacquistry A Friggin' Circus
Lacquistry's A Friggin' Circus looks to be two sizes of hex glitter. The colors are vibrant and in your face.  This one is in a pink or blue jelly base as opposed to the clear base of the others. Something about having only two sizes of hexes makes it much more "in-your-face!"

Below are some close-ups of each one:

There is nothing like multi-colored glitter that is matted over a black base! The glitter seems to keep sparkling through the matte top coat.  See for yourself...

So my comparison is really no comparison at all!  While they may all be multi-colored glitters, none of them are alike!  They each have their own uniqueness and I still love each of them for their own special beauty!  My only regret here is that I don't have Dollish Polish's Random Dancing to add to this comparison.  Are there any others I am missing?  Please, please comment and let me know!  I may do an update in the future!

There are alot of multi-colored glitters out there, so yes you are missing some!! ;-P

Deborah Lippmann - Happy Birthday
OPI - Rainbow Connection
Wet n Wild - Party of Five
Nicole by OPI - Rainbow in the S-Kylie
Milani - Gems
Confetti - Tasmanian Devil
Ulta - Pinata-Yada
Essence - Circus Confetti

And I am sure I am forgetting some! I like that you have two options that are handmade though =) I just have OPI - Rainbow Connection which is pretty similar to Sephora - Sparktacular.

Thank you! They are all gorgeous! I LOVE the matte ones!!

Thanks Julie, for all of the additional ones! That is quite a few I am missing! LOL. It could take me some time to acquire those!
I appreciate all the support everyone! I really just wanted to show the three multi-gliiters I had, because I noticed that although they were all multi-glitters, NONE of them were the same and I thought that was really neat and showed the creators uniqueness!
