Okay, I lied about Nail Wheel Wednesday being back this week. I meant it at the time I wrote that last week, but have since realized I have so many holiday polishes backed up in my swatching queue along with a few nails of the day looks that the only way I can hope to get them out in a timely manner without making posts that are crazy long is to take over the nail wheel slot. So, Nail Wheel Wednesday will either turn into Nail Wheel Weekend or it'll go on hiatus until the new year. I'll decide later; right now I've got a holiday Sinful, Ice Dream, from the Holiday Shimmers display. In the comments on the display post that included this collection, Impoverished by Polish noted that Ice Dream looked like China Glaze Lorelai's Tiara. When I pulled Ice Dream out to swatch, I saw she had quite a good point, and skipped right to the comparison. I also grabbed Sally Hansen Showgirl Chic from the Gem Crush line, another silver and blue glitter in the same vein.
Here they are on the nail; left to right, Sinful, China Glaze, Sinful, Sally Hansen.
The Sinful was three coats but probably could have been two. The China Glaze was three coats and needed them all. The Sally Hansen was two coats. These three bear a very close resemblance to each other. The Sinful is perhaps a touch more dense with blue than the China Glaze, and the Sally Hansen blue glitter is a touch less turquoise-leaning than the other two.
Here's a closer look at Sinful (top) versus Sally Hansen (bottom):
And China Glaze (top) versus Sinful (bottom):
There's no reason to have all three in your stash unless you really, really like the look and want to never run out (or are driven to keep things around for comparison purposes like I am).
