Swatch Comparison - Funky Fingers Sand and Stilettos vs. Color Club Magic Attraction

Hey guys!

In my recent swatches/review post of some Funky Fingers polishes, Rebecca asked me to compare one of them (Sand and Stilettos) with Magic Attraction by Color Club.

This is for you, Rebecca!



Keep reading to see the swatches and comparison!

As you can see, both of the shades include silver and holographic glitter suspended in a clear base. However, the major difference is that the silver glitter that dominates in Magic Attraction is also coupled with a sort of rose pink coloured glitter. I really didn't find find this as noticeable until I compared these two shades and had Magic Attraction next to a clearly silver glitter polish.

Aside from the colour difference, the glitter in Magic Attraction is slightly denser than that of Sand and Stilettos. Swatches of both shades are still 3 coats each but I had to apply the coats of Sand and Stilettos a little more thickly than I did with Magic Attraction.

Although the two shades have about the same amount of holographic glitter within them, it's more pronounced and brighter in Sand and Stilettos.

The formula is good with both of these but like most glitters with clear bases, they take a number of coats to reach full opacity and it's easy for these types of polishes to get really thick on the nail. For this reason, if I were to wear either of these, I would probably layer them over a coordinating polish so that I wouldn't have to use as many coats.

Color Club Magic Attraction was released with the Glitter Vixen Collection which was a limited edition set but can still be bought online for a reasonable price. Funky Fingers Sand and Stilettos is available now at Five Below stores in the US and I'm not sure whether or not it is limited edition since I don't have a Five Below where I live.

In the end, if I had to choose one over the other, I think I would surprisingly go with Sand and Stilettos. I prefer the silver-only glitter to the silver and rose coloured glitter and I also like that the holographic glitter in Sand and Stilettos stands out more than that of Magic Attraction. Guess I can knock Magic Attraction out of my Top 10 Polish list!

  3. Ummm, just to inform you... Funky Fingers is made by the same company that makes Colour Club... and is a lot more inexpensive. There's a lot of dupes between the two as well.
