Orly Space Cadet vs Claire's Venemous

A lot of people say that these are close to being dupes. Sometimes I’d see swatches of them together and they did look similar so I was confused and had to do it myself! Plus, I wanted to show the awesome missgreencurry, who sent me Space Cadet. 🙂

I know they have a similar eggplant to olive type of effect, but to me they always looked pretty different. My swatch really showed how different they are.

They look awesome in the bottles!

I guess if you love duochrome that has a purple to green shift, then these are both similar and both awesome, so I can see the comparison, but some swatches like this one from stephscloset make them look like almost exact dupes, that’s where I got confused. Maybe at a certain angle they do look alike!

If you want to see some awesome close-ups of Space Cadet, I love this post on lacquerized.com! (Her blog is sooo amazing by the way if you haven’t seen it, I always thought her pictures and swatches were the best quality by far!)

Sally Hansen Prisms – Pink Opal

I have this on my MUA swap list, so someone asked me to swatch it for them over white and over black.

I didn’t have my black handy so I used China Glaze’s Concrete Catwalk since its pretty dark!

It doesn’t look as great over white, but it is awesome over black! It really shifts from pink to green. It stays pink most of the time, its only green at a certain angle…

I just got Ozotic Pro 506 finally… I’ve had 505 but it was more blue than teal, so I’m excited to swatch a comparison here pretty soon!

Tuff Scent – Wish

This is the last Tuff Scent polish from my order. Its not really my thing, but its pretty in the bottle? I put it over Tuff Scent – Inner Strength.

The scent is Pear, which I thought I would hate, but it smells nice!

What do you think? On the nails its a little more yellowy and a lot less pink than it seems in the bottle… must be the angle!

Essence – Speed of Light Blue & King of Mints (And Nfu Oh Restocked!)

First of all, Fabulous Street restocked their Nfu Oh holo polishes, flakies, Aqua Base Coat… go get some quickly! 🙂

I was just informed a couple of hours ago, so I hope I’m telling you soon enough for you to stock up. I had to get some of their holos just now for the first time. I also threw in a “Jelly Syrup”, a flakie, and a glittery jelly along with my 2 Aqua Base coat bottles. I knew they wouldn’t last long on that site!

Back to the You Rock collection… here are the two blue-greens! Speed of Light Blue is on the left, that one is my favorite of the whole collection!

These both apply really well… better than the Chanel polishes they are dupes for.

BB Couture – Adam

This is one of the most interesting polishes I own.

It looks like a dark taupe army green, but it has red shimmer inside!!

Check this out, I’ve never seen a polish like this!

How cool is that? 🙂

My new job has been awesome… Since I started, I have been working on this software, and they are flying me out to Maryland/DC next week to demo it!

BB Couture – Wire Stripper

I have 2 more BB Coutures for this week. This one is Wire Stripper!

It seems to shift from purple, to a warm sparkle. By warm I mean not really gold or green, but somewhere in the middle, maybe pewter?

I love how its dark, glittery, sparkly, duochrome… can’t go wrong with that. 🙂

Zoya – Lolly & Mitzi

I think I made the comments functionality a little better last night… it will either give you a confirmation (if it remembered your identity from last time you commented), or it will at least say that it was posted and you have to refresh to see it. I hope that helps!

This swatch is Lolly and Mitzi from the Mod Mattes that Zoya released for summer. Phoebe was the other one, which I already swatched.

I don’t know, I just can’t let these two grow on me. They are just kind of an ugly shade of magenta and green, or at least on my skin tone! I did love Phoebe and I’m keeping that one, but I just can’t seem to like these!

I did used to love some ugly 70s colors like burnt orange and avocado green (like grandma’s kitchen wallpaper!) but this green is like… well, I have parakeets and I’m always cleaning up their poop, and its that kind of green. haha!!

What do you guys think of that collection?
