Nail Comparisons: China Glaze Riveting + Other Orange Shimmers/Flecks
Left to right: Pointer finger is Myrta by Zoya (Summer 2012) 2 coats, Middle is the Riveting by China Glaze 3 coats, Ring finger is 18.104.22.168.Orange by Wet n Wild 3-4 coats, & my pinkie is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Hard to Get 3 coats.
Myrta is clearly more pink toned & has yellow/gold shimmers that aren't as fire-y so they look more silver. Myrta is extremely saturated though which is something Riveting has in common after its layered. 22.214.171.124.Orange is the closest thing I could find to an orange that appeared "lit from within" like Riveting. Clearly much lighter & leans way more yellow but if you like the fire look, this one is really fun. Hard to Get isn't as sparkly as the others. It has some shimmers that end up looking more reflective because they are so small. In the shade, Riveting & 126.96.36.199.Orange can actually look similar in shade when in the bottle. The shimmers in Riveting really set it apart.
Well, that cements it! You NEED Riveting! haha What do you think of these other orange shades? Own any of them? All of these colors are linked above in case you want to check out older posts focusing on each shade.
