Revlon Heavenly Nail Polish VS Deborah Lippmann Stairway To Heaven (Comparison, Swatches, Pictures)

Revlon recently released a new glitter polish called "Heavenly",  that gained buzz right away for being a pretty close twin to Deborah Lippmann's "Stairway To Heaven".  I picked up the Revlon as soon as I saw it and new I just had to see with my own eyes how close the two polishes compared. Here are my photos of both!

 Right out of the gate, you can see that these are SUPER similar- glowy, iridescent glitters in a clearish base:

Here they are side by side on the nail.  Again, very similar. The color, size, and shape of the glitters is nearly identical. If I had to really dissect the two, I'd say that the Deborah Lippmann version has a slightly more milky base than the Revlon., and that the Lippmann one also is a tad thicker:

Here are both polishes layered over a dark brown creme (Misa Tailored Taupe):

And for my manicure today, I wore Zoya "Jacqueline" with Revlon "Heavenly" on top:



I have learned that if I wait long enough, Revlon will eventually come out with some pretty cool glitters. (See my other Revlon/Lippmann comparisons here and here). 

What do you think of 'Heavenly'???
