Here is 2 coats of Amy with flash. See the golden microshimmer and golden undertones?
Here's 2 coats of Riveting from last year. If anything, it's go a stronger gold undertone.
Can you guess which nails have Riveting and which have Amy? Without flash, the answer is clear.
Riveting is on my middle and pinky nails. Without flash it seesm to have a slightly lighter color, a bit less microshimmer, and a tad more coverage than Amy. However with flash, they're pretty much identical! They're different enough for me to keep, and while not a total dupe, I'll take it for when I'm out of Riveting!
OPACITY: Riveting wins! It's almost opaque in 1 coat
MICROSHIMMER: Amy wins. The shimmer is so much more apparent
LASTING POWER: Riveting wins. My Zoya had some wear the next day.
FORMULA: Both had lovely formula that dried quickly
AND THE WINNER IS CHINA GLAZE RIVETING! :D
