Powder Perfect Lorelei has a periwinkle-leaning light purple creme base with green glass flecks and fuchsia-purple microflakies.
I used three coats plus top coat here, although it’s really more of a two-coater, I was just having the impression that it somehow didn’t want to stick to the base coat I was using (Illamasqua, for the record – not really my favourite base coat, I won’t be repurchaing it).
Then I had the impression that I’d seen this before somewhere…
Here is Indigo Bananas Electric Unicorns, a periwinkle creme with green glass flecks and fuchsia-purple microflakies.
I used three thin coats plus top coat.
Under Ott lite:
Here are the bottles next to each other. Now, clearly the Powder Perfect is a shade more purple/darker but other than that they’re quite similar.
Here’s the comparison on the nail; three coats for the Indigo Bananas (on the index and middle), two coats for the Powder Perfect (on the ring and pinkie) (I managed to get it to play nicer with the base coat this time).
The Indigo Bananas is definitely a bit more sheer in addition to being slightly bluer. You can kind of see a streak on my middle finger where I didn’t apply it as evenly…

Despite that my own personal pick is the Indigo Bananas just because I’ve had it longer and have a much bigger collection of their polishes! 🙂 Although I do think these qualify as “similar, not the same”, so I can see how someone might want to have both!

I did this comparison a while ago and have since sent the Powder Perfect on to a new home with a nail polish buddy of mine, hope she enjoys it 🙂

Ooh, that is pretty awesome – I love those sorts of periwinkle blue colours. Very nice.
Thanks Sandra! I love periwinkle too!
Wow these are very similar, if I didn’t know this was a comparison post, I would have thought it was all one polish! Very pretty color too 🙂
