Hello lovelies! Today as I was trying to revive an older polish, I realized that I have a lot of other polishes that were similar. So today I present Who’s a Dupe?: Turquoise Creme Edition.
The creme polishes I am comparing are China Glaze in For Audrey, OPI in Mermaid’s Tears, Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in 140 – In a Splash, Avon in Jade, mark. in Mojito, and Sugar Kiss (an E.L.F. brand) in Mint Creme.
I also thought that the Avon and Sally Hansen polishes looked very close in shade as well.
While going through my stash, I noticed I have a lot of shiny turquoise colors as well.
Just for fun, I swatched them.
From left to right is butter London in Two-Fingered Salute, Revlon Parfumerie in Wintermint, LA Splash in Golden Seahorse, China Glaze in Metallic Muse, and Sally Hansen HD in 03 – Pixel Pretty.
I liked the minty smell of the Wintermint. It was not obnoxious and subsided after a while. After about 5 hours had passed, I sniffed again – the minty smell was still there, but I had to get the swatch very close to my nose.
All in all, I’d say that there isn’t too much of a difference in a few of the creme polishes: Sally Hansen and Avon fall more in the green turquoise range, OPI and Sugar Kiss more in the grey range, mark. is a bit lighter than the others, and China Glaze is more blue-toned.
