OPI: Chasing Rainbows (vs. Rainbow Connection)

Hi everyone!

Those of you who also follow me on Instagram have already seen my comparison of OPI‘s Chasing Rainbows form their Spotlight on Glitter Collection and Rainbow Connection from another collection that was released way back.

I’m not a huge fan of glitterbombs but I love Rainbow Connection for the lovely color combination. I’d hoped that Chasing Rainbows would have something different or extra to it, compared to Rainbow Connection. Sadly Chasing Rainbows is basically a recycled version of Rainbow Connection. I can’t spot a single difference between the two 😦 Nevertheless I don’t mind having two bottles though. opi - chasing rainbows - rainbow connection bottlesI’ve read that there seem to be many other similar polishes from OPI going around. Especially with The Muppets Collection and the new Spotlight on Glitter Collection. Such a pity! opi - chasing rainbows - rainbow connection compI also did a glitter gradient with Chasing Rainbows over black:opi - chasing rainbows1What do you think of the Spotlight on Glitter Collection?

China Glaze: Wish On A Starfish – Sea Goddess Collection

Have you noticed that more and more brands come up with entire textured collections? They’re everywhere! I don’t mind, I love them!

Today I have Wish On A Starfish from China Glaze‘s Sea Goddess Collection to show you. This is a pale pink with golden shimmer running throughout. I’ve used two coats for the picture below:china glaze - wish on a starfishIt’s a pity that the golden shimmer doesn’t show up in my picture. It’s lovely!

How does this compare to Catrice’s Call Me Princess?catrice vs. china glazeWish On A Starfish is obviously a lighter shade of pink. Also I think the golden shimmer in Call Me Princess is slightly more noticeable than Wish On A Starfish. They’re both pretty! Formula wise they’re quite similar. They both need two coats for full opacity.

Do you have a favorite textured polish?
