Dupe-fest Swatcharama Part 3 – Blues and Greens
The swatcharama event ended up comparing all of my A Englands to other polishes. I’m a rare displeased customer of the brand, so I think I was looking for these polishes to really win back my affection during the comparision. I decided to put Order of the Garter up against Pure Ice’s French Kiss. French Kiss is a creme and Order of the Garter is shimmery, but the blues are similar. Of course, I had to crunch the A England bottle open because it was still crusted shut from its original shipment.
I then decided to compare my two brightest greens, even though they aren’t really comparable in finish or formula. Eh, I never claimed to be scientific.
Application of French Kiss was quite nice, but even this brief test left a stain behind. Order of the Garter is more sheer but builds nicely with no staining. Just in Lime is a beautiful grassy green but its fast drying formula kind of threw me off and my second coat was poorly timed. Green Glow is just awful. No amount of layering will bring that thing up to the promise of the bottle.
Winners: Order of the Garter and Just in Lime.
You win this round, A England. You win this round.
