First, with the similarities - they are both teal microglitters. That's pretty much it, but as you can see from the photos, the overall look is just similar enough to really only need one. Let's check out the differences!
Do You Paraiba
Do you Paraiba is a clear based polish with teal and silver microglitters and larger teal holo glitters in squares and diamonds. Like most Lynnderella micros, DYP is pretty thick. However, it spread evenly and easily over the nail, and didn't require the dab method. It achieved opacity in two coats. I really liked how easily this polish applied and how I didn't have to dig in the bottle to get the glitters out. Conversely, I also liked the fact that it wasn't so thick that it just clumped up on my nail. The second coat spreads evenly and helps to level out the first coat. It was a gritty polish when dry, so I had to use a coat of Peita's Polish Glitter Glaze under a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. Dry time was fairly quick even with the additional topcoat. DYP is a limited edition that, sadly, has been discontinued. If you can find it in a blog sale, though, I really can't sing its praises enough! You can purchase Lynnderellas at their store here.

Seahorse Rodeo is not as thick as DYP, and the glitter particles are much finer than the Lynn. SR is a teal based polish with silver holo microglitters, so the coloring comes from the base and not so much from the glitters. The colored base actually makes SR ever so slightly darker than DYP. The glitter to base ratio is more in favor of base than glitter as compared to DYP, but it is still definitely a densely packed polish. Due to the fact that SR is thinner than DYP, application wasn't quite as controlled and did require some cleanup. It also took three coats for full opacity versus DYP's two coats. It dried gritty as well, so I used the same combo of Peita's Polish Glitter Glaze and KBShimmer's Clearly on Top. Seahorse Rodeo was a preorder, but she says on her FB page that they should be restocked in a few weeks! You can purchase Smitten Polishes at her store here.

So, what do you think? Which is your favorite? To be honest, they are similar enough that I'm glad that I only have the one. I don't really think that you need both, but then again, can one really say no to such loveliness? I think not.
