A couple of holo comparisons

Hey gals! So today I have pictures from a while ago, when I first got OPI DS Sapphire and Original. I realized that I had two light blue holos and two light purple holos so I decided to swatch them on a nail wheel to show how similar/different they are. Here we go!

In order: China Glaze 2NITE, OPI DS Sapphire, China Glaze IDK, OPI DS Original

In order: China Glaze 2NITE, OPI DS Sapphire, China Glaze IDK, OPI DS Original

Top: OPI DS Sapphire, Bottom: China Glaze 2NITE

Top: OPI DS Original, Bottom: China Glaze IDK

Left: OPI DS Sapphire, Right: China Glaze 2NITE

Left: OPI DS Original, Right: China Glaze IDK

My conclusion:
-China Glaze holos are more linear than OPI DS holos.
-OPI DS Sapphire is a weaker, more sheer holo that took 4 coats to achieve what you see above.
-OPI DS Original is less linear than IDK...BUT it looks blingy-er. :)
-It takes more coats for OPI; Sapphire was 4 coats, Original was 3; whereas the China Glaze were only two coats each.

Hopefully you guys liked it :) Let me know which ones you prefer! :) Thanks for reading :D


  1. Why do I not know about holo polishes?! Probably because I'm still such a newbie!

    Juging by your swatches, I think I would prefer China Glaze holo's... probably the favorite being IDK!

  2. I agree, Desiree, the China Glaze holos are amazing. Sadly, they're very hard to find :/ I hope they come out with a new holo collection :)

  3. Those are awesome polishes!

  4. @ imfeelingnail-venturous- I agree, I'm sooo happy to have them :)

    @fingers- I do too! We need more holos in the world! :)
