In my opinion, definitely better and worth the money. OPI chips on me within 2 days (glitters 1); whereas butter LONDON last me 5-7 (glitters about 3). Their base and topcoat definitely add to wear time of their polishes (and others) - so worth the money. When it comes to glitter polishes, maybe not for the price; but for cremes and chromes you plan to wear; it's worth it. Add bonus: they're 3-free and better for your nail health.
