Iridescent/Opalescent Glitter Comparison

Sorry for not posting yesterday. >_< Yesterday was just craziness happening throughout the day and I didn't have time to swatch. One thing that did happen was, yet again, my computer's hard drive has decided to throw a fit so I am using my husband's computer. If you notice the pictures look a little differently than normal that's the reason.
Ok so on to the post for today! I have a pretty huge comparison post for you all that came about after I picked up 2 different versions of Color Club Snow-Flakes around December. I certainly don't have all the iridescent/opalescent polishes on the market, but have picked up quite a few over the last few months.
All swatches in this post are 1 coat of the iridescent polish over 2 coats of Wet n Wild Ebony Hate Chris with top coat.

First up we have Color Club Snow-Flakes (glitter version) vs. Color Club Snow-Flakes (flakie version), Hard Candy Break Up and. Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat.
Regarding the 2 versions of Color Club Snow-Flake, the flakie version I purchased at Sally's and the glitter version I purchased at TJ Maxx in a duo labeled "Winter Affair" with Gift of Sparkle. I'm not sure if the true name of the glitter version is Snow-Flakes. I have seen talk that it is Color Club Starry Temptress, but Starry Temptress appears very different in pictures I have looked up. The flakie version is a dupe for many other flakies like it, see Polish Insomniac's post here for comparison photos.
Here is Sally Hansen Rock Candy vs. Color Club Starry vs. Sally Hansen Disco Ball vs. Sally Girl So Disco (812030).
These photos are Sally Hansen Snow Globe vs. KleanColor Sugar Coat vs. China Glaze Make a Spectacle and China Glaze Luxe and Lush.
Lastly I have China Glaze Snow Globe vs Charlotte Russe Crystal AB and Revlon Heavenly vs. Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven

Some of these polishes featured are discontinued and no long found in stores. :( Sorry! But I recommend looking on Amazon, eBay or blog sales to find the ones that are discontinued.

Which iridescent/opalescent glitter is your favorite?
