Periwinkle Comparison Post

In butterLONDON, China Glaze, Comparison, Illamasqua, Nails, Zoya by Jacki6 Comments

Hi readers! I’ve recently acquired some new polishes and after seeing them in person, I thought they looked similar to others in my stash. I’ve got 3 comparison posts planned to show you in the next week. Hopefully they will be helpful for you!

Today’s comparison post is on periwinkles. I was wondering how close Butter London Sprog was to China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le before I got it in a swap and it turns out they are pretty close. I also recently got Zoya Jo and Illamasqua Cameo so I threw those into the comparison as well!

Butter London Sprog and Illamasqua Cameo are 2 coats, China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le and Zoya Jo are 3 coats, no top coat. As you can see, Sprog and Secret Peri-wink-le are very close, with Sprog a hair lighter. Sprog had a much better formula(and should, for the price being about double the China Glaze) out of the two. I like that Zoya Jo fits well with the first two, but the added shimmer sets it apart. Cameo is obviously too dark and bluer but I wanted to add it in because it is a new Sephora exclusive that is described online as a periwinkle and maybe this will help anyone deciding to buy it. 
I love periwinkle colors! I can probably do without the China Glaze now, though. Thanks for reading!
