Major Purple Comparison - Thunder Road, Do You Lilac It, Miley, Pure Petunia, Ate Berries in the Canaries

OPI Do You Lilac It? vs SpaRitual Thunder Road vs Zoya Miley

color boosted, sunlight, & without flash

Index: OPI Do You Lilac It? (3 coats)
Middle: SpaRitual Thunder Road (2 coats)
Ring: Zoya Miley (4 coats)
Pinkie: SpaRitual Thunder Road (2 coats)

Do You Lilac It? is a deeper purple than Thunder Road.  Thunder Road has more blue tones than Do You Lilac It.  Miley is a much paler purple than either, although it is closer in color to Thunder Road than Do You Lilac It.

Thunder Road only takes two coats for full coverage.  Do You Lilac It typically takes three coats, although I have used four.  Miley takes four coats and honestly could use a fifth coat.

Thunder Road and Do You Lilac it apply very nicely.  Miley has some application issues - it is fairly streaky and goopy.  The color achieved looks nice, but it takes centuries to apply 4-5 coats since it takes so long to dry.  

Here I boosted the colors to help better illustrated the differences (my fingers are not half that tan in real life!).  These images of the polish colors are the most accurate.

Which purple is your favorite?

Thanks Mighty Lazmbchop, glad you liked it!!

I'd say Blushing Bud is much brighter and hotter than Ate Berries in the Canaries; Blushing Bud is much more of a hot pink while Berries in a medium grape.

I refuse to choose. I can do that, can't I? They're all lovely. I am a poor judge of color -- I love them all!!!

I love when comparisons are done. I have so many polishes that are so close in color. Very frustrating for me. I really want polishes that are very different from each other. Thanks for these shades. I love them.

love the comparison! I like the shade of the petunia... but I have an Orly polish that starts chipping almost immediately so I am tentative to buy another one. Anyone else have this problem w/ orly?
