Sunday Similarities: Elevation Polish Haleakala & Colors by Llarowe Dirty Diana

Hey there, folks!  The other day whilst perusing Facebook, I saw Manicure Addict's swatch of Elevation Polish's Haleakala and immediately fell in love.  I jumped right over to Elevation's site and they had it in stock.  Because of unbelievably fast shipping, I received my bottle yesterday!  When I opened the package, my first thought was that Haleakala reminded me quite a bit of Colors by Llarowe's Dirty Diana.  So I figured it would make for a great Sunday Similarities post!

At first glance, you can tell just from the bottles that these ladies are not dupes.  But I really wanted to compare them on the nail so I swatched them both.

As you can see on the nail, there are some obvious differences.  Haleakala is much more purple whereas Dirty Diana is a vibrant pink.  Aside from the color, however, these two share a knock-your-socks-off linear holographic effect and a perfect formula!  I'm showing two coats of each here with no top coat. 

Since these are not really dupes at all, I highly suggest both or either for your collection.  Haleakala is currently available on Elevation's site for $12.50 for a full size bottle and Llarowe does have Dirty Diana up on their page as I write this, but only one full size bottle left at $12.  I do believe mention has been made of Llarowe re-releasing the Michael Jackson tribute collection, of which Dirty Diana is part, so don't despair if you miss it this time!

As always, thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed the post!
