Comparison Swatches: Zoya Tori & ChG Raspberry Festival

So, after wearing Zoya Tori yesterday, I got a question from the lovely miss Brooke at GetchaNailsDid regarding the similarity between Tori and China Glaze Raspberry Festival (from the "Summer Days" Collection).
So today I swatched them both for you! Swatches are three coats, no top coat.


Sun...


Zoya Tori on index and middle fingers, ChG Raspberry Festival on ring and pinky...

Shade...





As you can see, these are two very different shades. They do have the glass fleck finish in common, though, but whereas Tori has red and silver fleck glitter, Raspberry Festival has more of a red and pink glitter to it. Both dries to a smooth, high gloss finish. Obviously, Tori is deeper and darker compared to RF, which is lighter and brighter. I think both are great shades!
So, miss Brooke and everyone else; these are definitely different enough to justify getting both ;)

That's it for now; off to bed (early for once ;))...

Yes, I have to agree, different enough to justify buying both! They are both very pretty. So many colors to wear and not enough fingers...lol!

Hi Velvet!
I'd say so many colors to wear and not enough money... #:D

Thanks Vanessa for swatching them. I don't know if I'll buy the Zoya. But you never know!

Similar, but yes, quite different. I like them both but I think I'd wear Tori more in the Fall/Winter and Raspberry Festival more in the Spring/Summer.

Hi Lucy!
You're welcome :)

Hi Mary!
Yes, since Tori is a deeper, darker shade it's certainly suitable for fall/winter. I think it's a year around color, though; I'd wear it anytime ;)
