Pink Glitter Comparison: NOPI Candy is Dandy and OPI DS Tourmaline

If you recall, back in April I swatched the lovely Nicole by OPI Gumdrops that I had in my possession, missing a couple, but happy with the ones I had. I mentioned that Candy is Dandy is very close in the bottle to OPI Designer Series Tourmaline.

Here's a link to that post.

In fact they not dupes, but seriously similar.

Left to right:

  • NOPI Candy is Dandy
  • OPI DS Tourmaline
  • NOPI Candy is Dandy
  • OPI DS Tourmaline
As you can easily see they are not the same shade, with the NOPI offering a touch more pink and OPI's a touch more raspberry. Additionally, there is more texture in the NOPI and more glitter in OPI DS Tourmaline.

Same order, top to bottom. I'd say that both have texture, just that Candy is Dandy has more of those little texture balls added, where DS Tourmaline is made up of glitter.

Both are three coats, no top coat and are both lovely.

If, however, you only budget for one, either would really do in a pinch.

Thanks for looking at my little nail polish journal!
