December Glitter #9: A purple/silver glitter Comparison with RBL Frugalista and OPI Show it and Glow it!

I love coloured glitters very much and I've gathered quite a few over time. When I received OPI's Show it and glow it! (the '!' belongs in the title ) I immediately grabbed my bottle of Rescue Beauty Lounge Frugalista to see how they compared.

Ik hou heel erg van gekleurde glitters en in de loop van de tijd heb ik er al een boel verzameld. Toen ik OPI's Show it and glow it! ontving( die '!' hoort in de titel ), heb ik gelijk mijn flesje Rescue Beauty Lounge Frugalista erbij gepakt om ze met elkaar te vergelijken.
As you can see, they have some similarities: both have purple and silver glitter in them and a clear base.
So I was not totally crazy to think they would be similar

Zoals je kunt zien hebben ze wel wat overeenkomsten: in beide zitten paarse en zilveren glitters en ze hebben een transparante basis.
Dus ik was niet helemaal gek dat ik dacht dat ze vergelijkbaar zouden zijn.
But if you look closer there are more differences then similarities between the two.
Frugalista has two colors: purple and silver and looks lighter and more sparkly because there is much more silver in it.
Show it and glow it! has much more purple glitter in it and also some silver, yellow, red, blue and green glitter.

Als je beter kijkt dan zie je dat er meer verschillen zijn overeenkomsten tussen deze twee lakken.
Frugalista heeft twee kleuren: paars en zilver en ziet er lichter en glimmender uit doordat er meer zilver in zit.
Show it and glow it! heeft veel meer paars erin en daarnaast ook wat zilver, geel, rood, blauw en groene glitter.

On this close-up (above) you can really see the difference best. And you can see how pretty they both are!
Frugalista has square glitter, Show it and glow it! has round glitter
I used 3 coats Frugalista and stille have some visible nail, but not much.
Show it and glow it! is much more opaque, this is just 2 coats of SIAGI and no visible nail!

Op deze close-up (boven) zie je echt de verschillen goed. En je kan goed zien hoe mooi ze allebei zijn!
Frugalista heeft vierkante glitters, Show it and glow it! heeft ronde glitters.
Ik heb 3 lagen Frugalista op en je kan nog steeds wat nagel er doorheen zien, maar niet veel.
Show it and glow it! is veel dekkender, dit zijn slechts twee lagen en je ziet er geen nagel doorheen.
I can't choose a favourite and they are very different, so I'm happy I own both of them!
Ik kan geen favoriet kiezen en ze zijn erg verschillend, dus ik ben blij dat ik ze allebei heb!

Thank you for watching!!!
Have a great day
