Pahlish Typewriter Keys + Gray Comparison

So I have been reading through the comments on my giveaway about what people would like to see more of on my blog. One of the biggest things seems to be dupes and cheaper brands swatched. Well today will be the day! But not the only day I will do this ;)I will be tweaking a few things around on my blog as suggested, too. :)

Also, I am going to be swatching the other 2 giveaway polishes so this post will included one of those as well.
So for today, I am comparing the 3 gray polishes I have China Glaze Hook and Line, Sinful Colors Slate and Cosmetic Arts Gray. Then layering Pahlish Typewriter Keys over all three.

Sinful Colors Slate is a darker gray with a silver shimmer.China Glaze Hook and Line is a frosty gray/taupe and Cosmetic Arts Gray is light gray creme.
My index finger and middle finger are 3 coats of Sinful Colors Slate. My ring finger is 3 coats of China Glaze Hook and Line and my pinky is 3 coats Cosmetic Arts Gray. All are over Seche Rebuild and with no top coat.
I honestly thought when I picked up Sinful Colors Slate it would be a close match for Cosmetic Arts Gray. But it's no where close!  Slate is much darker and has a shimmer that Gray doesn't. I knew Hook and Line would be far from dupes for the other 2 but wanted to swatch it just for comparison. 
Pahlish Typewriter Keys is a clear base with fine silver shimmer, ultra fine holographic sparkle, black and pearly white shards of glitter.
All fingers are 2 coats of Typewriter Keys over the above mentioned colors with a top coat of Seche Vite.
This polish is awesome! I love that it pretty much spruce up any color not just gray!
And just because I'm a dork and noticed it after staring at my nails, there is a white shard on my index finger that looks like a little heart!;)

China Glaze Hook and Line is from their Hunger Games collection and maybe still found at Ulta & Sally's. Most people are finding it at Sally's in their clearance section.You can like China Glaze on Facebook here.

Cosmetic Arts polish can be found at a variety of places though, I picked up mine at Ross for $1.99.

Sinful Colors Slate can be found at most Walgreens and is apart of their Destination America collection but, it is being found on certain displays at Walgreens out now. Sinful colors are also on sale for $.99 this week at Walgreens!

Pahlish can be purchased through etsy here, although it is currently not completely stocked. You can also like Pahlish on Facebook here.
