Today I'm posting two comparison requests. The first one is for two blue OPI glitters, the Burlesque glitter Simmer & Shimmer and Absolutely Alice from the Alice in Wonderland special released in the early year.
Absolutely Alice and Simmer & Shimmer...
...and the other way around: Simmer & Shimmer, and Absolutely Alice.
As you can see the main thing these have in common is being glitters. Sure, they're both blue-ish, but Simmer & Shimmer is a multicolored glitter while Absolutely Alice is predominantly blue with the sparse gold. So, if you're into blue glitters, of course you need both.
The next comparison was requested by my Polish polish loving reader zygzag: how do Mossy Britches by Nina Ultra Pro compare to other mossy and golden greens?
Guppy 77, Nina Ultra Pro Mossy Britches, Nfu Oh 125.
And in the same order. Pictured are four coats each of the Guppy and Nfu Oh, and only two of the Nina Ultra Pro.
You can tell already by the bottles they aren't that much alike. Mossy Britches is the most golden one, and also the most brush strokey, and the Nfu Oh is the most green. The latter one is also painfully sheer and really need all four coats, while the Guppy may only require three- I used four because, frankly, my bottle is a wreck, almost empty because it was subject to an unfortunate accident, involving my then 3 year old daughter and her curious little fingers... She ended up with a rather cool skew haircut and I ended up missing one set of bed linen in my drawers...
Swedish word of the day:
olycka -noun accident
Sometimes they happen.
