Comparison: Dark holo's

Early on in my newly found nailpolish obsession I bought OPI's MY Private Jet. Expected a lot of it, and was greatly dissapointed.
I expected it to be really holo, well, it wasn't.
Later on I discovered there are about 5 versions of this polish (what where you thinking OPI, never change a winning formula!). I was just looking at swatches on the internet, how was I supposed to know :-o.

After that, I discovered other brands, also with dark holo's, yay!
I collected these three over the time, and thought it would be nice to compare them.
Maybe this will come in handy for you polish lovers out there, to decide wich one to buy. Or to love.

Okay, the polishes are:-OPI-My Private Jet
-Color Club-Revvvolution
-Diamond Cosmetics-Chainmail Charm.

I put on 2 layers of each polish. Of course, photos are clickable to see the larger image.

In each photo, there's OPI My Private Jet on my indexfinger, Color Club Revvvolution on my middlefinger, and Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm on my ringfinger. Easy, right?

Oh, one little sidenote; a while ago I tried to pimp My Private Jet a little by adding some China Glaze Wireless Holographic topcoat. Didn't really work by the way, but it changes the holographic effect of the OPI just a teenie weenie bit.

Well, off to the comparison!First, a photo.


It's immediately clear My Private Jet is the least holo of these three.
My Private Jet is a nice and dark, brownish/black colour, but the holo just won't come out, really.
Revvvolution has a little more black in it, and is way more holo. Chainmail Charm on the other hand, is a little bit more brown, and also has a nice holo.

This pic shows the colours even better. Revvvolution is a little more black than My private Jet, Chainmail Charm is a little more brown, and the lightest colour (in my opinion) of these three.

These pics were taken in the sun, it's really obvious My Private Jet just doesn't seem to make it as far as the holo part goes. It is just lightly holographic, only really clear when you put your hand just in front of your eyes.

Some more pics to show you the colours and the holo effect of these polishes.
Again, there's OPI My Private Jet on my indexfinger, Color Club Revvvolution on my middlefinger, and Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm on my ringfinger.



Overall I think I like Color Club Revvvolution best. I just love the classy dark polish, with the holo just splashing out when the sun shines.

This was it for my comparison. I hope this was helpful for all you polish-lovers out there.
If you're still left with any questions, please, do not hesitate to ask.

Leaves me wondering, which one of these is your favourite?
