|From L-R : Zoya Peyton, Blaze and Aurora|
You can also clearly see from this shot see that the holo glitter in Aurora is much more concentrated that in the other shades, and its utterly mesmerizing on the nail. It ranks amongst my sparkliest polishes of all (second only to the Smitten Polish 'Magic Words' collection polishes...post to come on these). So imagine my surprise to see this fantastic comparison post by More Nail Polish comparing OPI DS polishes, Zoya's, Ozotic's and Dance Legend, showing that the Dance Legend WOW Prism polish packs in more glitter than all of them....I strongly predict there will be some DL polishes entering the stash in the near future.
Jen at The PolishAholic (one of my absolute fave bloggers) did a wonderful comparison post of Holiday polishes from several major brands, including the Zoya Ornate collection. Check it out at this link.
One of the comparisons made on the More Nail Polish post is between Zoya Blaze and Picture Polish Monroe. On her post these look very similar. I have both of these so took a quick couple of comparison shots and I think they are quite different. I think Monroe was re-released with a new formula, and I wonder whether this is why mine is so dissimilar to Blaze....
|Left - PP Monroe, Right - Zoya Blaze|
As you can see here, in my bottles the PP is a darker shade of red, more of a burgundy, and the Zoya is more pink leaning towards raspberry. Both are fabulous, and not dupes. So yes, if you like sparkly red polishes I think it's justifiable to have both. Then again I think it's justifiable to spend more on nail polish than food, so what do I know?
Finally, I was interested in finding comparisons to Dream with Picture Polish Cosmos (which I don't own, but was considering) and found this great post from the Polished Cricket. In her post she suggests that these are quite similar, but that Dream is better and from her pics I agree. Definitely no need for both methinks.
Until next time :)
