So Fiona from Swatch and Learn had posted up swatches of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Blue It. Seeing the swatches reminded me of OPI DS Magic and then of course I wanted to see how they compared.
Yay, my first comparison post! All shots were taken beside a window, no flash.
Bottle shots! Blue It on the left, DS Magic on the right. Right away you can tell the difference. DS Magic has so much more....magic going on in the bottle. There's blue and then purple and then you're just lost in the mix.
But of course the "magic" doesn't really translate that well onto the nail. Don't get me wrong...it's still purdy but I wouldn't mind seeing the purple outside of the bottlel!
DS Magic on the left, Blue It on the right. Magic needed 3 coats to be fully opaque, Blue It needed 2.
So while I was doing comparisons, I remembered I had wanted to do this one as well! Dupe alert?
Wet n Wild FastDry in SaGreena the Teenage Witch on the left, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Emerald City on the right. They look fairly similar right?
Well that's pretty much where the similarities ended. StTW looked like that with 2 coats and Emerald City looked like that with 2 coats. See the difference? StTW is so sheer, I couldn't stand it! Emerald City just applied way better.
Here's a shot indoors with natural light, no flash.
L-R: Blue It, DS Magic, Emerald City, SaGreena the Teenage Witch.
So here ya go Fiona, this one's for you! :)
