Arissa 'Rock'n Amethyst' VS. China Glaze 'Grape Juice'

1st = Arissa "Rock'in Amethyst"
2nd = China Glaze "Grape Juice"
3rd = Black + Arissa "Rock'in Amethyst"
4th = Black + China Glaze "Grape Juice"

So here is a quick comparison of Arissa "Rock'in Amethyst" and China Glaze "Grape Juice", I had to wait for my camera to power up before I snapped these. Be sure to check out my origional post of these Arissa Polish's below. Now I wish I had bought the rest of them at the Family Dollar in Grand Forks, ND - U.S.A. but it will be something to look forward to next time I visit♥

The first two nails are 2 coats of polish & 2 coats of T.C. and the last two nails are
1 coat of black + 2 coats of polish & 2 coats of T.C. The China Glaze polish is much lighter and has way, way more 'glass flecks' in it. I know it is a horrible thing to say, but I think it is too glass fleck-ey on it's own and I generally wear it over a deep black polish. I have been looking around for a dark purple glass flecked polish, and am happy I found one for $2.00 bucks...I do not know what the survival rate will be on these Arissa's but they applied very well and have a low odor. Why are you still reading this? Get your bunz to Family Dollar.........

I have a peach Arissa that I got at a dollar store. I had some problems with the formula being thick, but I do like that purple. I have the CG, but haven't tried it yet.

I Have this brand at my dollar store, I will be looking for these! I have CG Grape Juice and don't much care for it, It looks funny with my skin tone. but I think this would be much better!

I am a purple maniak, so thanks for the post. I just have to look at pictures, because we surely don´t have Arissa here :)

Thanks for the swatches and the comparison! I think Rockin' Amethyst is a great color. And I guess that yes, if we both think so, it's glass flecked LOL!! :)
