Some Comparisons of Blue/Aqua/Teal Shimmers

August 5th, 2011

I bought a couple of polishes each from China Glaze’s and Misa’s summer collections, and when I looked at Mermaid Dreams and Blue Iguana I thought they needed a comparison. I also added one more blue from my collection.

Left to right: L.A. Girl Alkaline Blue, China Glaze Blue Iguana, and Misa Mermaid Dreams.

Here’s me trying to be pedagogical. I’ve applied two coats of each polish.

Blue Iguana in the middle is the sheerest and the greenest of the bunch. Alkaline Blue to the right is the darkest blue. I do find the finishes to be quite similar on all of these.

Here’s a close-up of Mermaid Dreams and Blue Iguana, and I think you can see the purple shift in BI here, and that’s what I think sets this one apart from the Misa polish. So I think you need both =)

I also bought Misa Krystal Water and wanted to compare it to other similar polishes, and to my horror I hardly found any in my stash! After some digging I came up with these to have something to compare it to:

Left to right: Viva La Diva no. 76, Misa Krystal Water, Color Club Emerald Depths.

This is also only two coats each.

Emerald Depths is the darkest and most blue, Krystal Water is the lightest one with it’s beautiful glassfleck shimmer, and VLD no. 76 is the greenest one. They’re all lovely in their own way!

      Jag håller med =) Emerald Depths var nog ett av de första Color Club-lacken jag köpte faktiskt.
