Blue, purple, green duo-chromey comparison :)

You know the saying, "You've seen one, you've seen them all", well I thought this was true most of the time, but it's not always true... and definitely DOES NOT apply to nail polish...can I hear an AMEN!

I grabbed:
Zoya "Ki"
Nubar "Peacock Feathers"
OPI "Glacier Bay Blues"
GOSH "Purple Heart"

All 3 coats

























































The Zoya and the GOSH are very similar and both have an icy purple tone with flashes of green.  The Nubar has a great blue base that slightly leans green  with flashes of purple and green.  The OPI has a deeper blue base with a great purple and green  duo-chrome, gorgeous!
















The Nubar is the most sheer out of the 4, but nothing that would bother anyone.  My favorites are the O.P.I. and the Zoya, the formula and color are "spot on" for both.






























See the great green flash they all deliver, awesome! I love polishes that have this, I guess that's why I have 4 of them..LOL!















The Zoya and the GOSH are very close, let's take another look!















Yeah I can definitely say to all my nail heads, that if you do not have the GOSH, get the Zoya.  You won't be disappointed. :)
Pin It!

The only one I don't have is the Nubar, but I think maybe I should fix that situation now that I've seen your swatches. :)
