Last weekend I bought two lovely Essie polishes - one a kind of murky gray green (Sew Psyched) and one a lovely deep gray-taupe-purple (Merino Cool).*
And then I got a coupon for Barielle polishes, so bought three - Get Mauveing, Putt-E-On-Me, and Belly Dance (they have a buy two, get one free deal).
Then they arrived...
First, I present to you Putt-E-On-Me v. Merino Cool v. Sally Hansen Commander in Chic (which I already owned):
Obviously, Commander in Chic is a little lighter than the other two, and Putt-E-On-Me may be a teeny bit darker and bluer than Merino Cool (except that Merino Cool pulls darker and bluer than bottle color on my hands). But... yeah. They're kind of all the same color.
Then we have Belly Dance on the left, and Zoya's Pasha on the right (which I already owned):
While I'm at it, I should show you these - Essie Body Language and Color Club Who Are You Wearing?:
On the up side, I clearly know what I like!
But maybe it's time to take a wee break from buying polish until I've identified some other colors I might like.
(Please tell me I'm not the only one who ever does anything like this??)
*Of course, the $.99 bottle of grass green polish I bought at the same time was a great investment - I don't own anything else like it, and it looks spectacular on my toes. So much for restraint...**
