Comparing Darkness

*tap* *tap* *tap* Is this thing on? Oh. *Ahem*

Hi everyone! Long time no post. I've been so busy doing absolutely nothing useful. I wish that were not true, but I'm really not cut out for this whole unemployment thing. Please send good vibes that I shall find work before the end of the year. I'm still hopeful, yet the runway is getting shorter.

I've got a couple of posts planned for you, so stick around if you're interested.

This comparison was inspired by the introduction of the latest winter collection from Zoya. Everyone is nuts about "Storm" and I was too, but I wondered...

Is it similar to an LE from Evil Shades that was released in 2010 in remembrance of Ronnie James Dio.  I'm talking about "Rainbow in the Dark" people. Evil Angel hand crafted this beauty and sold a limited number of bottles and the Lizard was lucky enough to get one on her hands!

So here it is, I bring you a comparison of "Rainbow in the Dark" and "Storm"  (click to see the pictures bigger and be camera died and even if it was alive, my cell phone takes better pictures.)
 Can you guess which is which? They are a little different.
I bet you can tell them apart now...
Rainbow in the Dark is on my Fore and Ring fingers while Storm is on my middle and pinkie fingers.

Storm is extra blingy from the start but the polish doesn't seem to be too sheer so each layer is pretty much the same as the last. The formula is a little thick with a full, fluffy brush so it was pretty easy to apply. The Lizard rates this one "Toasty"
Rainbow in the Dark is a definite jelly black which gives it some depth and more of an outer space feel. The brush in is a little old-style skinny, but I didn't have any problems with it since the formula is easy to work with. Lizard Rating here is also "Toasty"

I love them both for different reasons and am happy I have each. Which one do you like?

I want a new camera for Christmas...or my birthday...or Mother's Day or just because. :)

*Disclaimer*  Evil Shades LE Rainbow in the Dark was purchased by me.  Zoya Storm was a prize I won on Facebook. All opinions are my own.


  1. I so hope you find a job!

    Awe too bad I don't own Evil Shades but I'm glad I own storm. Both are pretty in there own way :)

  2. love them both - I never knew about the Evil Shades polish, bummer!
