Purple Holographic Swatches

So I have had a lot of requests for comparison posts and someone mentioned on Facebook they would love to see some purple comparisons. So I decided to combine my two favorite things the color purple and holographic polish. :)
So, here are swatches of Ozotic 513, Layla Ultra Violet, China Glaze Octa Gone Wild and China Glaze LOL.

Ozotic 513 is a plum colored holographic with a mix of both linear and scattered holo. Layla Ultra Violet is a light purple holographic with a very strong linear holo.  China Glaze China Glaze LOL is a dark purple liner holo and Octa Gone Wild is a lighter purple with a scattered holo. 
All fingers have 2 coats of each polish over Nfu-Oh Aqua base and no top coat.
Octa Gone Wild and Ultra Violet are pretty close in color, though Octa Gone Wild is slightly darker and clearly Ultra Violet wins in the holo category. 
I think my favorite out of all 4 is 513 just because the color is so unique. I do love the linear holo in Ultra Violet though!

Ozotic 513, as well as all of Ozotic's 500 collection, is discontinued. You can still purchase it from Overall Beauty here and from Picture Polish here. If you are interested in any of the 500 series by Ozotic I recommend picking them up as soon as you can!

Layla Hologram effects can be purchased from Aveyou Beauty here, Ninja Polish here, Layla's online store here and at Ulta online here or in store. 

China Glaze Octa Gone Wild is from the Kaleidoscope  collection and LOL from the OMG Collection. Both are discontinued and have been for a few years. You can still find them on Ebay and on blog sales if you are willing to pay a little more for them. China Glaze will be releasing a new holographic collection in Spring 2013 called Hologlam. Pictures of the Hologlam collection can be seen on Polish Galore's blog here. You can like China Glaze on Facebook here.
