Last three China Glaze - Autumn Nights 2013 polishes with comparison!

This post has been waiting and waiting.....my nails looked like sh*t after the holidays, then the light was bad, then the polish did not speak to me: it just was not going to happen, until now.
I have three foils from the China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection; Gossip Over Gimlets, Strike Up A Cosmo and Rendezvous With You.
First up is Gossip Over Gimlets, a dens silver foil with gold flecks:

I compared Gossip Over Gimlets with Annie Never Can Say Goodbye and OPI Designer De Better. GOG was the most foil like of the three polishes and the most harsh looking.
NCSG has pink metallic flecks and has much finer silver metallic flecks. DDB is less dens, finer and has these bronze coloured flecks which gives a much warmer feel to the colour. I like the OPI best!

Next up is the rosy metallic, Strike Up A Cosmo:

Stike Up A Cosmo is also a grainy metallic foil with gold and silver flecks in there. I compared it with Zoya Faye. You can see it is in the same colour family but Faye is lighter (more pink) and has more golden flecks and no silver. SUAC covers almost in 1 coat and with Faye you need at least 2! Perhaps Faye is more spring and SUAC is more autumn.......

The last one of the Autumn Nights series that I have is Rendezvous With You:

Rendezvous with you has a little finer in structure then the other two and it also lacks the gold flecks (only silver here). It is a nice, very saturated, brownish purple colour; very autumn appropriate.
I compared it with Zoya Daul but as you can see there are no similarities between the two.

Over all I find these three metallics a bit too grainy and to harsh looking for my taste. I missed the little extra umpfh, like a nice colour shift or tiny extra colour twinkle (like some tiny little red micro glitters in RWY).

    1. Thanks! I do not speak Italian, so I do not understand the whole meaning of what your saying but I guess you mean that the comparisson between Zoya Daul and Rendezvous With You is weird?? Since I compared Zoya Faye with Strike Up A Cosmo and Daul is a close friend to Faye...I just wondered how they would compare....and the conclusion is: they do NOT, you are right!
