Many of you thought it would be a good idea for me to do a red glitter comparison. I had a difficult time trying to figure out how to do this right. I probably have 20 red glittery polishes, so I just narrowed it down to the holiday looking jelly-glitter reds.
Here are the culprits....
I used 3 coats of each of these to do this comparison. (It would probably be best to enlarge this photo)
-I think the Milani, China Glaze, & Maybelline are near dupes of each other color wise. Maybelline Red Comet maybe a tinge darker than the rest. I think where difference lies is with the the formula of each. Ruby Pumps is a thinner and I think could require more coats than the Milani and the Maybelline. The Milani and Maybelline really only need 2 coats. These are thicker polishes. Maybelline Red Comet is also a fast drying polish.
-ELF Cranberry is different from the rest of these. This is the Cranberry version in the Target gift set. This one has more of a creme-like base rather than a jelly. It's equally as glittery as the other but has a different finish. Also this red is slightly more warm-toned than the rest.
-Zoya Delilah is the opposite of ELF Cranberry. This has more of a jelly-base with less glitter than the Maybeline,Milani, and China Glaze.
I think all of these are great, but when it comes to the 3 that are practically the same I don't know the difference. I think if you weren't do a swatch fest and rushing like me. Bad Steph, I know. All of these except Zoya Delilah and China Glaze Ruby Pumps would only need two coats. Zoya and China Glaze would be better off with 3..or 4 if you're impatient like me! :P
I hope you like this comparison!
