So, I've had a few polishes in mind that I'd wanted to do comparisons of. I finally got around to swatching them last weekend, and I guess I'll finally get around to posting the pictures this weekend. ;)
In other (but somewhat -- you'll see in a minute -- related) news, have y'all seen the new Finger Paints display at Sally's? It's like four blue shades with a sheer iridescent topcoat and a silver... topcoat? foil? I can't quite tell and didn't want to buy it to find out. But the blues are LOVELY. I bought two of them.
The first is a pastel creme, called Blissfully Blue:
The second is a medium blue shimmer, called Add and Abstract... or is this blue? It's really sort of teal. There is some definite green in this and I think it's GORGEOUS.
BUT... both of these reminded me of other colors. So now, on to the comparisons.
From left to right: Finger Paints Blissfully Blue, China Glaze For Audrey, Orly Gumdrop, Essie Mint Candy Apple.
The nails are in the same order (I have Blissfully Blue on both my thumb and pointer here). As you can see, Gumdrop and For Audrey are the closest. Blissfully Blue is much more, well, BLUE than the others.
THEN... Add and Abstract vs. Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Marine Blue.
I have the Rimmel on my middle finger and pinky, Add and Abstract on my index and ring.
Those are really so close you don't need both.
So then I wondered what the difference was between China Glaze Lubu Heels and Milani Garnet Gems.
The difference is MINIMAL. I have China Glaze on my index and ring. Milani on my middle and pinky.
Seriously, you only need one of these. Not both.
And that's it for comparisons today. I have some good news to post here, but probably won't get to it til Sunday. I'm sure you'll all be on pins and needles. :D
