Swatch Comparison - Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday vs. Wet 'n' Wild Party of 5 Glitters

Hey guys!

Today I picked up a few of the new Wet 'n' Wild polishes including the apparent Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday dupe called Party of 5 Glitters so I decided to do a comparison to see just how similar they are.

As you can see, the glitter is much denser in the Lippmann polish than the Wet 'n' Wild one but besides that, they're rather similar. Plus, once you add a second coat to the Wet 'n' Wild polish, the glitter density looks about the same.

The biggest difference besides the glitter density is that Party of 5 Glitters doesn't have any gold glitter pieces in it while Happy Birthday does. Also, Party of 5 Glitters doesn't have smaller silver glitter pieces, only the larger ones while Happy Birthday has both. However, both of these minor differences will probably be barely noticeable on the nails.

I don't particularly like the brush for either of the polishes so that didn't really matter to me.

The price difference between these 2 polishes is pretty crazy. The Wet 'n' Wild polish is $2.84 at Wal-Mart while the cheapest I've seen the Lippmann one for is about $18 on eBay.

So if you missed out on Happy Birthday or if you just don't want to shell out that much for one polish, Party of 5 Glitters is a great alternative. I wouldn't call them dupes but they're definitely close enough that it's hard to tell once on the nail.

Like I said above, I also picked up a few of the other new Wet 'n' Wild polishes so swatches for those should be up in the next couple of days!

Hope this was helpful!

  1. hmm I like the wet and wild one more.. maybe that's because of the fact that it has less glitters and they are all the same size :)

  2. You should compare Milani's Gems to these, as well :)

  3. Keri: I'm planning on it but unfortunately, that Milani collection hasn't popped up in my area yet! I've been keeping my eye out for it though so as soon as I can get my hands on it, expect comparison swatches. :)
