So this is the Clash of the Polishes I recently promised. Let's get right into it, shall we?
White Polka Dot
Swatched on black for comparison purposes. I can't really tell you the number of coats because you have to fish around for the bigger glitter pieces a bit and keep dabbing around here and there to rearrange them. I'd say you have to go over the nail about two to three times to approximately get the amount of glitter you see in the photo. The glitter in this is a silvery white for the big hexagonal pieces while the smaller pieces are blue, that same silvery white, and gold.
Pirouette My Whistle
Also swatched on black. This is exactly one coat. The big glitter here is also silvery white, but the small glitter is just silver, no other colors involved.
My final verdict: These two are not dupes.
White Polka Dot looks pretty with the small glitter being multi-colored, however, that is not visible as much during normal wear as when you look at it up close. It takes some effort to get enough big glitter pieces on the nail.
Pirouette My Whistle is only one color, but is perfect in one coat and looks very pretty as well.
Which of these do you prefer?
