China Glaze Octa Gone Wild vs. Milani Hi-Res

I recently posted the discontinued China Glaze Octa Gone Wild and in the post mentioned that Milani Hi-Res was similar.  I decided to do a side by side comparison of the two for you all.

The colors are similar and both have a holo finish, but the particles are smaller in the China Glaze, and the holo is smoother looking.  I took a picture outside to see the holo better.

It's quite over-exposed, but you can REALLY see the differences in the holo finish.  Plus here Hi-Res seems to be a slightly darker, warmer shade of purple.

For those of you who missed out on Octa Gone Wild, that Hi-Res is a decent alternative.  It's not a dupe by any means, but Milani is great quality, and you can get it just about anywhere.

Hope this helps...have a great day!
