Nubar Indigo Illusion vs. Spolied Paying With Platinum

Hey all! Happy, happy Thursday! It's almost the end of the week! Wooooooooo! Bet you can't tell that I'm excited! So, today I have for you a special post - it's my first polish comparison. As of right now, I don't really have too many polishes that are extremely close in color because I have just started accumulating my collection within the last few months. However, one of my favorite polishes that I have is Nubar Indigo Illusion. It is such a pretty and unique polish! Well, I was it CVS the other day and I happened to spot Spoiled Paying With Platinum and I thought it looked very similar to Indigo Illusion, so I decided to grab it and see!

After I had applied both of them, I could definitely tell they were not alike at all! I usually use two coats of II and I'm good to go, but for the purpose of consistency in these photos, I layered both polishes over a purple base coat. This is due to PWP being SO sheer! I just couldn't believe it when I put it on! It probably would have taken me a good five coats to get it opaque. Not to mention, the polish was so thin and the brush is huge, so of course I had application problems. Also, PWP took forever to dry! It took so long that I couldn't even wait until it was dry to take these pics!

As you can see in the photos, Indigo Illusion has a lot more going on. Paying With Platinum pretty much just looked purple over the base coat, although is it a little duochromey. Overall, I really did not like PWP and II surpasses it by far. I do have some other Spoiled polishes, and they're not all bad. You can get them at CVS for $1.99, so they're really reasonably priced.
