|Sinful Colors Faceted glitter layered over Sinful Colors Winter Wonder|

Faceted is another amazing color in this new collection, it's just so gorgeous. It's purple microglitter and holographic bar glitter in a clear base. The bar glitter shifts from turquoise to green to pink to yellow. I don't think I've seen anything quite like the glitter in this one. I initially tried to swatch this one alone, but realized after the 1st coat that this color probably would never build to opacity. That's how I came to layer Faceted over Winter Wonder instead.
I have more pictures from the Sinful Colors Winter Shimmers display, along with a couple of comparison bottle shots, after the jump!
I'll start with this picture of the Sinful Colors Winter Shimmers display. I don't guarantee that this is what the display is *supposed* to look like, since it was a bit picked over by the time I got to it.
Next, I wanted to discuss the dupes that I saw in this display. I unfortunately neglected to take pictures of one of them, which I'll describe first. It was a shimmery raspberry pink that I didn't get the name of. I was very tempted by it, but decided to hold back on buying it until I could bring my bottle of OPI Congeniality is My Middle Name to the store with me. The Sinful Color definitely seems to be a member of that color family, along with OPI The One That Got Away. (Here's a useful comparison post between the OPIs.) I will be sure to bring my similar colors to the store with me next time, and I'll be sure to pick up the Sinful if I deem it to be different enough. For reference, the pink in question is the in the middle of the display in the picture above, although it's definitely not as dark in real life.

Obviously, the lighting leaves a lot to be desired, but I hope you can see that Super Star is in a teal jelly base, while Dutchess/BMIR is suspended in a clear base. I think adding a teal color to the jelly base of these glitters is genius, and I'm sure Super Star will prove to be a great polish on the nail. However, it is close enough to BM, IR that I couldn't justify purchasing it for myself.

Later, Sally Hansen Gem Crush did their version, called Showgirl Chic. They're identical, as you can see in this comparison post. Sinful Colors Ice Dream looks pretty much the same as Sally Hansen's Showgirl Chic. Here's a picture of the 2 of them in the bottle:
Whew! I had no idea this was going to become such a long post. The final picture I wanted to share is a comparison that's not directly connected to the Sinful Colors display. I was at my nail supply place earlier today, and took advantage of the opportunity to photograph Zoya FeiFei with OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service. They are very similar to each other, as you can see in the following picture.

It seems to me the Sinful Color Winter Wonder will turn out to be a dupe of either one or the other of these salon polishes. I can't wait to do my own swatches, I'll be sure to let you know how it compares to Zoya FeiFei soon. :)
Finally, here's another pretty picture of SC Faceted over Winter Wonder. Ooooh...ahhh!
Will you be picking up any of the colors in the Winter Shimmers Collection?
