The polish collections for this spring seem to be pretty similar, for the most part (Essie, Nubar, Zoya). Of the brands I like, only China Glaze (my fave) has a spring collection that is a departure from pastel. But my first lavender polish was from CG's spring collection last year, which was pastel heavy. I put it on a couple days ago, and really loved it. I remember last spring feeling kind of 'meh' about it, but right now I'm finding it to be exactly what I want. But it got me thinking. Just how similar is it to the two lavenders I bought recently as part of Zoya's and Essie's spring collections?
Well, here's the answer:
|L to R: China Glaze 'Lighter Than Air', Zoya 'Marley', Essie 'Nice is Nice'|
'Lighter Than Air' and 'Marley', to my eye, seem to be the same color, the only difference being that 'Marley' has a subtle shimmer. 'Nice is Nice' is ever-so-slightly pinker, the other two leaning more toward grey/blue.
I've got to say, of the 3, I prefer the China Glaze.
