Comparison: China Glaze Tinsel Town & Nina Ultra Pro Glamrock

Hello again, ladies! I'm excited to show you 2 identical dupes I found in my stash recently: China Glaze Tinsel Town and Nina Ultra Pro Glamrock. I actually bought both recently, I guess I am attracted to the same shades at different times!

I thought I'd share my discovery with you guys because I'm not sure how easy Tinsel Town is to find (it's from last year's or the year before's holiday collection), but Glamrock is readily available. With the holidays getting nearer, you may want a shade like this! Nina Ultra Pro recently redid their packaging. Their brush is now wider, like the Wet n' Wild brush, while the China Glaze brush remains the same. China Glaze ranges from $5-$8 and Nina Ultra Pro is $4 and some change at Sally's! Hope you enjoy!

Below I did 2 coats of each polish and 1 coat of topcoat! Glamrock is pointer and ring, Tinsel Town is middle and pinky!

Glamrock and Tinsel Town have small and medium sized silver glitter, which sometimes flash blue, in a charcoal, dark gray base. Both colors have great formulas and didn't give me any issues!

In this photo you can see they equally sparkle in the sunlight!

 Here's the contrast of the silver glitters in the dark base. Both polishes have relatively the same amount of both sized glitters.

I hope this was helpful!
