3 Reader Requested Comparisons!

Good morning! Happy Saturday! It's supposed to rain today so I'm planning on heading over to Sephora to take advantage of the VIB sale! Today I have 3 reader requested comparisons to show you guys, 2 from the Muppets collection and one of the Zoya Gems & Jewels Collection. I completely lag on putting these up, I wish I had more time for comparisons!

First up is Zoya Noel vs. Orly Sweet Peacock. Unfortunately no dupes here, but if you like one you will probably like the other. Sweet Peacock is much brighter and more vibrant and Noel is more of an icy almost dusty blue. Formula wise both are good, I used 2 coats of each.

OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It vs. China Glaze Love Marilyn! Alright, now I know you all thought these were very close dupes but they actually aren't as close as I thought they would be. I'll let the pictures do the talking here. I much prefer the China Glaze, it covers much better and I like the mix of glitter better. Last night I saw another possible dupe of Love Marilyn, from a new Sally Hansen Collection called Gem Crush. I didn't buy it because it looked so close but it's a good alternative if you can't find these. I used 3 coats of each polish for the photo below.

OPI Rainbow Connection vs Nicole by OPI Rainbow In The S-Kylie. dupes, we all already knew that right? If I had to pick one of these I'd go with the OPI because I like the brush better, other than that they are pretty much the same. I used 1 coat of each over white for the photo below.

All of these polishes are available now. I hear the China Glaze Eye Candy Collection is out now at Sally Beauty Supply if you have been looking for them. The Nicole by OPI Kardashian Collection is available now at Walmart. Zoya Gems & Jewels is available now on and OPI Muppets and the Orly Birds of a Feather collection should be out now at Ulta!

*Zoya, OPI and Nicole by OPI polishes were provided to me for review, all others were purchased by me with my own money.*

    Great comparisons!

  2. Thanks for doing those comparisons.  I found the red glitters especially useful to see on your nails.  I agree with you that the China Glaze is much better, and now I know which one to buy. :)

  3. Thanks for posting this! Isn't it frustrating to have two different polishes turn out to be so close or duplicates? The Opi red glitter is a total fail...Yuck!

  4. Great comps, thanks!  It looks like there are yellow specks on the NOPI rainbow glitter that aren't present in the muppets one ... am I just seeing things?

  5. I think you might be right, I don't see them either!

  6. The China Glaze collection is out at Ulta too, and they are buy 2 get 1 free right now!

  7. Funny this comparison came up...I wonder if you could compare OPI Rainbow Connection to Ulta Pinata Yada...they look almost identical.

  8. Wow, thanks for the comparisons. I think I'd go for the OPI Rainbow Connection over the Nicole because of the brush too. It's good to know I don't need to go out and buy them both. Thanks. <3


  9. So my Sally's doesn't have the CG Eye Candy collection yet, but my ULTA just got them in this week. I picked up and just swatched Love Marilyn and like it so much more than the glitters from the muppets collection.

  10. Glad you found them! I like it a lot better than the Muppets glitters also....Love Marilyn is actually what I was expecting the glitters from the Muppets to look like!

  11. Not to mention that Rainbow Connection/Rainbow in the S-Kylie are also dupes for Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday AND Wet & Wild's Party of Five. I know own 4 bottles of the same glitter LOL Good thing I like it!

  12. O.O  Eye Candy is at Sally's already?!???  *runs*  

    Awesome comparisons!  I <3 China Glaze Love Marilyn!  I can't wait to get all six of those glitters!  :D

  13. And Sephors by OPI has Spark-Tacular same as Rainbow Connection

  14. In your expert opinion, how does Zoya Noel compare to OPI I'm an Aquaholic.  I'm dying to find Aquaholic (kicking myself for not getting it in the summer!).  But maybe if Noel is similar it will squash the longing in my aqua blue water color loving soul? (let's hope!)
