Am I Crazy...


Or are these different??







(You can click to see a larger size. Though it's kind of blurry even on macro and without the glare of the sun. Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong here?)

Is the smaller one more glittery?? Is the glitter slightly larger? Am I totally nutso??

It could be my over active MUA eyeball imagining something. I haven't tried the big bottle on my nails yet.

Oh yeah, and NB is awesome - some chick posted that she found a bunch of these in a very random store in Ottawa and I sent my mom out to pick 2 up for me and she mailed them to me. (My mom is also awesome.)

Looks like the left one is more bright red! I could be crazy, though =D Don't ask a nail lady, we will all probably spot differences =D Ask a guy, they think there are only about 10 colors out there! =DDD

Piff said...

I agree! It's more of a bright orange-y red.

I'd have to see them on the nail; bottles are always fooling me into thinking things are different when they're the same (or vice versa).

Michelle said...

The left one looks more brighter :o

Ashley A. said...

They look the same to me, could just be the size of the bottle pushing the glitter together.

I don't know if it's me, the bottles or the fact that you told me something might be different :P

The smaller bottle looks to have larger chunks of glitter so it looks more glittery where the larger bottle veers toward shimmer. I don't know. I wouldn't have been able to tell if you hadn't said something!

We need swatches! And what store was this in Ottawa? I was there all weekend!

Katie said...

They look the same to me.

Piff said...

Karen - I'll do swatches. I wanted to ~save my precious Ruby Slippers~ but I guess swatches are absolutely necessary here.

Michelle - RIGHT?

Ashley & Katie - You're probably the only sane ones here

mKat - It just looks a little... nicer doesn't it?

Tasha - The store was Chatters. Do you know it? I never heard of it until the NB girl said something.

I never heard of it! I will try and find it next time i'm in town ;)

It's the visual illusion created by the size and thickness of the glass bottles.

Arrianne said...

I think what Ashley said might be true. It does look brighter, but I doubt it is.

Piff said...

Mischa & Arrianne - Here's hoping, I loved my mani w/ the mini bottle

I have the mini as well needs to go check to see if there different :)

It looks to me like the glitter is slightly larger in the smaller bottle on the left- and pardon my ignorance- but what Essie color is that?
I usually just give the Essies a quick scan when I find a display, because they traditionally don't have colors that interest me. (save Starry Starry Night- Oh, how I wish they'd bring that back!!!) But your beauties in the picture and the North Fork collection are forcing me to reconsider them...
Please post a swatch of this color when you wear it, it's gorgeous! Thank you!!!
