Purple Jelly Comparison

Hi guys!  I have a small comparison for you today.  A reader asked how these two polishes compare when I posted my swatch picture of Deborah Lippmann Call Me Irresponsible so I figured I do a formal comparison.  I don't have a bottle comparison picture since the Milani is in an opaque bottle.  First up, I'll repost the swatch pictures of each.

I think this is four coats of Milani Rad Purple.

And here's a picture of four coats of Deborah Lippmann Call Me Irresponsible.

Now on to the comparison.  I've got Call Me Irresponsible on my index and ring nails.   Rad Purple is on my middle and pinkie finger nails.  I used four coats of each and this picture was taken in the sun.

This picture was taken inside by a window.  This one is the most color accurate of all my photos.  I think it's funny how the Deborah Lippmann comes closer to the Milani bottle than the Milani does.

And this picture was taken with the flash.  It's not very color accurate, but that's how it sometimes goes with purples.

Rad Purple is brighter and redder than Call Me Irresponsible (which is bluer). Rad Purple also dries to a satin finish so I put top coat on it. Call Me Irresponsible dries shiny.  Formula-wise, the Milani behaved better for me.  I had a heck of a time trying to get the Deborah Lippmann even, but the Milani wasn't so bad.  They are both jelly finishes.

It seemed like such a shame to just wipe these off after taking pictures so I tried out some layering.  I pulled out Pure Ice Heart Breaker and Nfu-Oh #51 and added on coat of Heart Breaker to my index and middle nails.  Then I put one coat of the Nfu-Oh on my ring and pinkie fingers.  Gah!  This was so gorgeous.  I'll have to do a full manicure of Call Me Irresponsible with the Nfu-Oh on top very soon.

I hope you enjoyed!

Both are pretty, but they're not close at all. I like the Lippman color better.

I love both. But that's just because I love purples so much.

I just love when you wear the two different color polishes for comparison, it's such a cool fun look!

From the swatches, it confusing as what polish color should match the bottle. Both colors are beautiful and look gorgoeus on your nails, alone and look sensational with the special coatings of Ice Breaker and Nfu-Oh #51. Gorgeous colors.

Wow, it was SO weird as I scrolling down this blog. I have that exact color way (with flash)on my fingers right now in the same order! I'll be posting that up in upcoming days. The only difference is that I used China Glaze Tempest & China Glaze Coconut Kiss. Great minds think a lot :) Also, I love the effects of the glitters!

Your nails look so great in these jellies, so smooth, rounded and glossy. Fab

That is funny that the Lippmann matches the Milani bottle. I prefer the Lippmann purple. It's a gorgeous shade. Love the flakies also.

Great comparison. I love the DL one. I was wanting Rad Purple to be closer to the bottle color and Call Me Irresponsible does! Thanks for sharing this.
