Holo Glitter Comparison







Today's Post is a fun one!  Comparing a whole bunch of holographic chunky glitters!  I didn't label all of the pictures, but on paper, the order will not change - NYX Spotlight, OPI Servin' Up Sparkle, China Glaze Techno, Lynnderella Shape Shifter, and Lynnderella Mercury's Rainbow.    I used the same order from pinky to thumb as you can see above.  Spotlight and Techno are dupes, I honestly can't tell them apart at all!  There may be a few extra hexagons in the mix, but over all those two are the closest.  Servin' Up Sparkle is actually pretty thick.  I think 2 coats of Spotlight or Techno would be about equal to Servin' Up Sparkle.  Shape Shifter of course has a whole bunch of shapes thrown in, not just hexagons and small round holo pieces.  There are bar, diamond, square, hearts, and probably more!  It's pretty unique in this bunch.  Next is Mercury's Rainbow, which actually is a grey base.  The holo hexagon pieces in MR are a lot shinier I think, they "dance" better in the light.  They tiny holographic shimmer through it is also a tad different and reflects better.  So not sure what you can get, but if you love holographic glitter like I do, you won't mind have a few of these, if not all, in your collection.

I realize now that I probably should have done the opposite order below, but I matched it to the paper in how I would paint it!  Oopsie ;-) Sorry guys.
