Dupes: Chunky Rainbow Glitters

Hi guys!  I realized that I hadn't done a comparison/dupe post in a while and thought it was high time to fix that!  Today the comparison is of Ciaté's "Comic Strip," Hard Candy's "Pop-arazzi," and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's "Carnival."

As you can see the polishes look pretty identical in the bottle as they all feature hexagonal glitter in blue, yellow, orange, peach, white and black glitter in a clear base.  The biggest difference prior to opening the bottles is the price.  The Ciaté polish is the most expensive at nearly $10 (USD) a bottle while the Hard Candy and Sally Hansen polishes cost closer to $3-$5 (USD) a bottle.

After putting the polishes on my nail they really are just about identical and the most noticeable difference is that each polish has a different color ratio in its glitter.  Surprisingly the easiest one to apply was Hard Candy's "Pop-arazzi" while Ciaté's "Comic Strip" and Sally Hansen's "Carnival" had watery formula's that made it difficult to get the glitter on to my nails.

Overall it's clearly visible that Ciaté's "Comic Strip," Hard Candy's "Pop-arazzi," and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's "Carnival" are nearly identical and unless you are a crazy nail polish collector (like me) then you don't need all three of these polishes.  Out of the three I think the best one is Hard Candy's "Pop-arazzi" because it was easy to apply and is relatively inexpensive.  The worst one of the three is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's "Carnival" because the formula was so watery that it was impossible to get glitter on the nail but the clear base made a big goopy spot on the nail.  (For comparisons sake I applied one coat of each polish to see how the glitter distributed.)

If you want to know more about Hard Candy's "Pop-arazzi" check out my post from earlier this year here.

Thanks for reading my blog!  :)
