As Matthew said, the themes are different.  Not all distros make much
effort to match GTK-2 and GTK-3 themes.  Linux Mint for example tries
very hard to make both GTK2 and GTK3 versions of their standard
themes, but many distros don't.  But of course there is little or no
effort to match between distros.  All you ca do it try to find themes
that are similar enough that you can live with.

Good Luck!
