|Well, it certainly would seem that I do.|
I'd go into the story of how I ended up with four polishes that all have such similar qualities but that would be boring. They all have teal, green and blue shimmers that remind me of peacock feathers. There's even some glass flecks and flashes of purple in there. It's no wonder I kept picking them up!
All of these colors look very similar but still different enough. This is where I flashback to those famous last words, "It's really different. You should get it."

Notes and Differences
L'Oreal- Blue Marine- I don't have much experience with L'Oreal polishes but I'm really liking what I've tried so far. It's got a nice wide brush that is sort of like OPIs Pro-Wide, just not as fat. I think this one looked best at 4 coats but I could probably make 3 work. Clean-up was the worst. Major staining on my cuticles and around the nail.
OPI- Austin-Tatious Turquoise- Most sheer of the four. I really love OPI's Pro-Wide brush. More blue-toned than the others with the smallest shimmer particles. So sheer I needed five coats to build this one up. The purple is easier to find too.
Orly- Halley's Comet- Almost a one-coater! Obviously the most pigmented of the four. This one is the most packed with shimmer particles and there is a little more gold than the others as well. The other three polishes also flash purple in some lights and Halley's Comet had no purple to be found. Halley's Comet has the largest shimmer particles.
I've seen a few of these polishes compared to Zoya- Charla and OPI- Catch Me In Your Net as well. Maybe I need to pick them up and do a six-way comparison!
Will I keep them all? We'll have to see about that :) Don't forget to enter our 100 Likes Giveaway! There will be TWO winners taking home some Finger Paints Special Effects!!
