End of Red Week, Beginning of Green Week: China Glaze Party Hearty vs. China Glaze Twinkle Lights

I don't know why I even thought from promo photos that these two beauties would be near-dupes! I could have taken out my bottle of Party Hearty and looked!

They're both red, green and gold glitters in a clear base, but that's where the similarity ends. Twinkle Lights is much more gold, with the red and green as accents, all three colors are the same size glitter and it could be made opaque in four coats. Party Hearty combines small gold glitter, medium green glitter and large red glitter. The green is the most dominant, and it would take an awful lot of coats to make this one opaque. The swatches below are of three coats of each on a nail wheel.
