Glitter Gal Transfusion and Hot Chilli - Swatches, Review and Comparison

Personal Collection 
*These products are Cruelty Free 


As promised, my swatches and reviews of two of the newer, limited availability Glitter Gal polishes, Hot Chilli and Transfusion - and a comparison.

The formula and application were identical on these two. Smooth and easy, two coats for full opacity. No issues to report at all. NOTE: Hot Chilli's holographic properties were not diminished by top coat but top coat killed most of the holo in Transfusion.


Continued after the jump...





First up, Transfusion - This is a vampy red-purple linear holo. Shiny without top coat, which is how I recommend wearing it as top coat, at least the Poshe top coat I used, killed most of the holo. With top coat, it is a very vampy, rich bordeaux wine color, which I neglected to get photos of.

Hot Chilli is a warm, chili pepper red linear holo with copper undertones. Top coat didn't seem to diminish the holo of this one.

What do you think of these two? Which is your favorite? I loved both but I ended up wearing Transfusion WITH a holo-killing top coat and loved it. These are just pretty any way you look at them.

But how do they compare to each other? When I first saw swatches, I didn't think they would be different enough for me to get both, but since they only come in the smaller bottles (for $11.00 retail) I went for it and I'm glad I did because they are very different.

  4. Thanks for the comparison photos - I didn't think they were different enough to buy both either, but they are! :)

  5. I love Transfusion! It doesn't play nice with OPI, Essie, Wicked Fast, Poshe or Seche top coats though!
