Comparison time: grey and blue-greys


For this fine post I compiled rather random comparisons I made to figure out if my polishes are all dupes or not. I say no, but J. insists most of them look the same. The names are listed from left to right, I used two coats each. Here we go!

Illamasqua Snap – Zoya Marina – Zoya Tao – China Glaze Elephant Walk are all beautiful greys. My favorite is Tao, then comes Snap. I have no particular love for Elephant Walk, although it is unique in my grey collection.

Illamasqua Snap- OPI Lucerne-tainly look marvellous – OPI How’s it snowin’? – SOPI A Color that can’t be tamed, also greys, but mostly with a metallic shimmer. A Color that can’t be tamed is the most sheer, and doesn’t really fit in this color family. How’s is snowin’? is actually more of a glitter.

Illamasaqua DWS – KIKO 328 – China Glaze Pelikan Grey – OPI My Pointe Exactly - these are all shades of grey cremes, except My Pointe Exactly which is a jelly and needs more coats for opacity. I’m not the biggest fan of jellies, but this one is great for jelly sandwiches and layering experiments. My favorite of them all is KIKO 328, it has the nicest formula.

OPI Skull & Glossbones – butter LONDON Muggings – China Glaze Pelikan Gray – Zoya Dove – also all grey-ish cremes. Skull & Glossbones has a nice green touch to it, while Muggins is obviously on the lilac side. From the four, my favorite is Skull & Glossbones.

Cult Nails Let me fly – OPI I have a Herring Problem – butter LONDON Victoriana – BB Couture Moon over Manhattan – these are mostly blues and teals, but have a shimmer or particles in them that make them appear a bit grey. My favorite is Moon over Manhattan.

essie smooth sailing – OPI I have a Herring Problem – Revlon Princess – OPI I don’t give a Rotterdam, again, these are shades of blue as described above. Revlon Princess has a rather metallic finish. I love the vivid color of smooth sailing, but in fact I don’t wear any of the four often.
