Comparison Time

Hi all!

It's time for some comparisons again! There are three comparisons again this time, so let's get started.

comparisons gosh purple heart kinetics shall we dance china glaze secret peri-winkle orly cashmere cardigan chanel nouvelle vague orly gumdrop
A little roundup

First up is a comparison between Chanel Nouvelle Vague and Orly Gumdrop.

chanel nouvelle vague limited edition 2010 comparison orly gumdrop turquoise aquaLeft Orly Gumdrop, right Chanel Nouvelle Vague. As you can see, they are dupes! The only difference is the really subtle shimmer that Nouvelle Vague holds and Gumdrop is a teeeeenie bit more blue, but the difference is barely visible. Gumdrop is easier to get your hands on and it's a budget friendly alternative if you want Chanel Nouvelle Vague.

Next up: a coincidental dupe! I bought Kinetics Shall We Dance? at Alice and Jo's havesentials and found out it looked really close to GOSH Purple Heart.

comparison GOSH purple heart duochrome Kinetics Shall we dance?Left GOSH Purple Heart, Kinetics Shall We Dance? on the right. The only difference is the way the light hits these polishes. These polishes are identical. They're both evenly duochrome-y (which I couldn't really capture on the wheel) and have the same smokey dark purple, mossy green colors. These are dupes.

Last but not least of this comparison post, I have two periwinkle cremes for you; China Glaze Secret Peri-winkle and Orly Cashmere Cardigan.

secret peri-winkle china glaze orly cashmere cardigan periwinkle creme comparisonSecret Peri-Winkle on the left, Cashmere Cardigan on the right. Please imagine this is more periwinkle (a tad bit of purple), because the color freaked out my camera. These are not dupes. Secret Peri-Winkle is lighter and a bit dustier than Cashmere Cardigan, while Cashmere Cardigan leans more towards purple. The difference is big enough to justify you owning both ;) These are not dupes.

And of course, to round it all up.. A little summary in the form of a shot of the nailwheel;
