Happy Friday!! I've had a few requests for comparison posts. I haven't done many as I find it a little hard for me to spot dupes in the bottle. Recently I purchased both China Glaze No Plain Jane and SpaRitual Bismuth. They look pretty similar in the bottle, so I jumped at the opportunity to post a comparison.. First, I'll show each polish on it's own..
China Glaze No Plain Jane:
No Plain Jane (from The Bohemian Collection) is a very pretty duochrome that shifts from pink to purple. The formula is a bit sheer. I used two coats, but probably should have applied another. I really like duochromes in the sunlight, but a lot of them are just kinda "meh" for me most of the time.
Bismuth (from the new Metal Collection) seems to shift more from brown to pinkish with hints of green. Bismuth is more of a multi-chrome. It's really pretty, but the formula is very sheer. Four coats are needed for full opacity.

No dupes here. As you can see, Bismuth is much more warmer toned with stronger pink/brown shifts (ooh, I should totally compare this one to Models Own Pinky Brown!!) No Plain Jane leans strongly toward purple. I like both of these polishes despite their sheer formulas. Which one do you prefer? Do you like duo-chromes??
Enjoy your weekend!! :)
