Nail vs. Nail: White-Kwik-Silvr vs. Sugar Daddy and other minty concoctions...

After seeing China Glaze White-Kwik-Silvr on Perfectly Polished Tips, I HAD to have it. I found it at (used) at a local nail salon along with OPI DS Dazzle. Unfortunately, after I put it on at home, I was a bit disappointed.


index, middle and left side of thumbnail: China Glaze White-Kwik-Silvr; ring, pink and right side of thumbnail: Misa Sugar Daddy (please excuse the smudges; they both require four coats)

It's a dupe for Misa Sugar Daddy.

Misa Sugar Daddy is part of the Misa Sugar Sugar collection. I picked up 5 out of 6 thanks to the awesome promotion back in December. I was inspired by The Polish Addict's amazing swatches, including some of the sheers layered over black. Sugar Daddy is a touch more opaque than White-Kwik-Silvr but both remind me of glittery snow.

Speaking of snow...I got some great news from the people at Baskin-Robbins!

I mentioned in a recent post about how my heart was broken when I saw that York Peppermint Patty was pulled from the lineup. Two days later, someone from Baskin-Robbins found my post on Google Alert and let me know that it wasn't discontinued, but merely seasonal and is available NOW! I shall be calling my local Baskin-Robbins and see if I can get my ice cream fix ASAP...

As a side note, I also received an amazing green in the mail today: China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. I really wanted it last year but all of the local Sally Beauty Supply stores ran out of them almost immediately. I've only been ordering nail polish from online suppliers recently, so most of them stopped selling Emerald Sparkle by then. I can see what the hoopla was all about; it's insanely gorgeous. I'll post up pics in due time :)

I also saw those amazing Misa Sugar Sugar swatches at The Polish Addicts', I've been wanting Sugar Daddy ever since. I haven't gotten around to buy it yet, though. I've also been interested in White-Kwik-Silver because it's supposed to have that glass flecked finish that I love. If those are dupes, I'll pick up the China Glaze, just because of the glass flecks.. ;)
Can't wait to see Emerald Sparkle on you!

Mary said...

I saw Sugar Daddy somewhere too and have been wanting it ever since! I like yours, it does look just like Sugar Daddy. Yay on the Baskin Robbins, love them :)

Brooke said...

lol - I was just using Sugar Daddy last night! I ended up not using it for my mani, but how weird is that!

How cool about Baskin Robins!!

I also picked up the Sugar Sugar collection thanks to The Polish Addicts pics too.

I was able to take advantage of the Misa deal twice, so I was really pleased. I am a huge fan of Misa's now.

Helen said...

I love that colour though - really pretty. Ohh do I have a new ChG lemming?

Very cool about the Baskin Robbins. I've never tried it but I'm so impressed that they found your post and thought to let you know. Hurrah!

I have Emerald Sparkle - fabulous. I got Gussied Up Green last week too but am yet to try it.

You never know who is reading your blog. I've never had that flavor but I bet it's delicious. My favorite was called Macadamia Mania. It was loaded with the nuts. There were also toffee bits in it. I loved it so much. It was made a long time ago. I wish they would get that back. I think I would scream like crazy if they did. I like the polish also. I hate when I buy a dupe. It costs too much to send it back also.

Vanessa--Sugar Daddy is easier to get (WKS is DC'ed) and also B3F. Both have the glass flecks so both are winners :)

Mary--It's totally worth it!

Brooke--That Misa deal rocked! I only wish I got more; I only picked up 8!

Helen--I was very surprised...it shows that their PR is definitely up to speed; I wish more nail polish companies would perk up to the power of the internet!

Lucy--It's insanely delicious! I just found it locally and picked up a pint! You should contact B-R and ask for it back, you never know!

In this there was much that reminded me of the specious totality of old wood-work which has rotted for long years in some neglected vault, with no disturbance from the breath of the external air. Beyond this indication of extensive decay, however, the fabric gave little token of instability. Perhaps the eye of a scrutinising observer might have discovered a barely perceptible fissure, which, extending from the roof of the building in front, made its way down the wall in a zigzag direction, until it became lost in the sullen waters of the tarn.

It displayed itself in a host of unnatural sensations. Some of these, as he detailed them, interested and bewildered me. Although, perhaps, the terms, and the general manner of the narration had their weight. He suffered much from a morbid acuteness of the senses.

The word "calorie" was not created to make you feel guilty for eating. It's just a unit of measurement that defines energy - that's right, each calorie is a little packet of energy your body uses to run itself.

You can delete the user from the EE site manually, and if combined with the user deauthorizing the app on Facebook, all traces should be removed from your site. That’s what I usually do when troubleshooting FBC and want to test passive login for example: I deauthorize the app in Facebook and delete the account created by passive registration on the EE side

Too bad you're disappointed with it and it takes so many coats for the color to show. I think it's pretty and would look great as a french tip.
