Both polishes are a similar shade of light purple, which happens to be one of my favorite colors. However, their glitter mixes are quite different.
The base of Tart has blue and pink shimmers on top of the creme. The glitters used are small hexes in blue, pink, yellow, white, red, and blue micro glitters, and gynormous white and hot pink hexes. Application was smooth and easy. The larger hexes are difficult to get out, as you can see, so I definitely recommend turning it upside down just before using it. The base is definitely more creme than jelly giving it a smooth finish without any visible nail line. Try to ignore the wrinkling in my macro... It does take a little longer to dry. I'd probably put it in the medium dry time category. You can purchase Pretty and Polished at her store here.

Mother May I
Mother May I has more of a jelly base than creme. There's also a slight shimmer to the base that you can see a little in the macro shot. The glitters in this mix include iridescent, teal, blue, red, and fuchsia hexes and squares. The squares are a bit more difficult to dig out, but not impossible. Application was smooth. Even though it's a jelly, you don't need to be heavy handed to get full opacity. Dry time was a little better and closer to the quick side of my dryness scale.

So, there you have it! They have a similar base color, but that's pretty much where the similarities end. I definitely think you could have both in your collection without any problem!
