Comparison - OPI Teenage Dream vs. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Strobe Light

So I know you're looking at these two thinking "why are you comparing these two, they are clearly different" yes, they are. Alone.

OPI-Teenage Dream is a multi-colored glitter packed in to a pinky/clear base. This color is very pretty on it's own, using multiple coats; making sure to let each coat dry before
applying another. This was released with the Katy Perry collection right when the big crackle fad started.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear-Strobe Light is basically the same as Teenage Dream only MORE silver glitter and packed in a lighter pink,clearer base.
Both pictures are 3 coats, 1 coat of Seche Vite.

So you can see the difference of the two. Now check them both out over Color Clubs "Where's The Soiree?" Sorry the sun was gone and the flash really bounces off the glitter. I'll add another picture. I liked this combo so much I did all of my nails alternating each glitter.

How do you think these two compare?


  1. I see more silver to the sally hanson one, but that could be beacuse the of the glitter. I like the OPI better. Great idea to do a comparison! (I added you to my page of other blogs =))

  2. I only have OPI Teenage Dream and have only worn it on my toes so far. It's such a pretty colour, but I find pinks hard to wear because I can never find exactly the right shade that matches my skin tone. Doesn't help that I also tend to gravitate toward all the wrong pinks. :P

    Thanks for the comparison swatches. The Sally Hansen one looks pretty, too. Actually, I think it would flatter me more than Teenage Dream.

  3. I love finding comparable colors. I actually don't see much of a difference between the two!

  4. I like Teenage Dream better! That one has a light pink base, I don't like glitter polishes with a sheer base!

  5. Hi Krissy! You commented on one of my posts saying that Sally Hansen Celeb City kind of looks like a Color Club polish. Well, I just googled it and they are similar... but I think Celeb City might have more actual shimmer/almost glitter :)

    Cool comparison btw, never thought of those two colors being close :)

  6. wauw, looks so pretty!!

    i follow you ;)

  8. They are similar, but I can tell the difference with the photos where they are on your nail with no base coat!

  9. I'm thinking Strobe light looks better over black. But Teenage Dream in always a win for me on the natural nail. It's my favorite polish!

  10. i like the opi one better i think - more pink to it aha.

  11. I prefer the OPI by itself but would probably use the SH as a top layer. I don't really wear pinks much anymore so I would buy the SH to layer with and put the other $3 to another polish :D
