Cobalt Blue Nail Polish Smackdown

Cobalt Blue Nail Polish Smackdown

As promised, today I’ve got my cobalt blue nail polish smackdown post for you.

It seems like cobalt blue has been a super popular shade these past few months. After I started getting quite the collection of them I decided a comparison post might help a lot of you decide which ones you might want to check out.

I went through my stash and decided on these 12 shades, which are all (for all intents and purposes) creme shades. A couple of these technically are shimmery. Dior Sailor has some shimmer, but it’s super subtle so you barely see it. Orly Royal Navy is also a shimmer, but the shimmer settles at the bottom and if you don’t shake it up you can get a nice blue jelly creme from it! Many of these are more recent shades and still available, but others are a few years old.

You know what’s weird? Out of all these shades there are really no dupes! Ok two of the really dark blue shades could be considered dupes, but I expected to have at least one or two dupes of the lighter, brighter shades. But nope.

Illamasqua Scorn vs. Cult Nails Fetish

Illamasqua Scorn vs. Cult Nails Fetish

Hey there!

Today’s post was requested by a reader via email. She wanted to know if there was really any difference between Illamasqua Scorn and Cult Nails Fetish. They are both black shades and classified as mattes, so let’s check it out.

Judging from the bottles alone you can’t see any difference. Both are super black cremes with a matte finish. You don’t use a base coat or top coat with either, if you want the full texture effect they are meant to have. Both are two coats for complete coverage.

Orly Gumdrop vs Ancient Jade

Why hello there! Ready for another comparison post? Been awhile since I’ve done one, sorry I got off-track there for a bit!

Today I’ve got another reader suggestion comparing two similar greens. Orly Gumdrop and Ancient Jade.

Both of them are from Orly. Both are what you could call mint greens. Both have a creme finish. But are they that similar?
