Pretty & Polished, Lush Lacquer, and Lynnderella Comparison

I'm finally freaking done, I just took my last final! I guess I'm really pumped but at the same time I'm REALLY wishing google had an algorithm for "What should I do with my life now?" haha, sadly, they haven't gotten there yet.

But anyways, there have been a lot of dupes/semi dupes of Lynnderella's Connect the Dots come about lately, or at least matte black and white glitter polishes coming around.  I love it! But I thought today that I would do a little comparison of the three that I have.  Please forgive the messy paint job, straggly cuticles, and not the best of photography.

The review here is of Lynnderella's Connect the Dots, Pretty and Polished Valentino, and Lush Lacquer's Salt n' Peppa.  As you can see from the pics, connect the dots and salt n' peppa were pretty similar, while lush's creation was FAR more glittery with the irridescent glitter to it. Lynn is on the middle, Lush 2 and 4, and 1 and 5 are Valentino.

I really wanted to pick a winner that wasn't lynn but alas, the shimmer in the base of her polish goes a long way, not to mention on each nail I can see 3 sizes of square and hex glitter not to mention the longer spindrels or whatever they are.  Lush was the most glitter packed and I really shouldn't have put a second coat on, it would have been perfect with one.  Valentino was beautiful, went on great and I will definitely wear it again, that said, it wasn't magical, well, it is, but not like Connect the Dots.

Two coats- Barielle's u-concrete-me is the under coat.
