So I've started my quest early,
as I'm on the hunt for the 8-pan shadow palettes from Wet n Wild.
I've got a local Harmon drug store that is
always spot on when it comes to new releases,
they are either exactly on schedule, or sometimes even early,
so I decided to have a peek.
Alas, I didn't find them, but they did have the new
The Justin Bieber inspired collection from Nicole by OPI
Bieber fever over here?
Umm, no, not in a million years, but I did have a peek
at the collection, and one color stood out to me.
Though I couldn't resist picking it up,
I couldn't help but feel that maybe I have this color,
or at least something very close.
So now that I've got it home, and I've had a chance
to see what is in my collection,
let's do a side by side comparison.
Starting from the left
Essie - Mint Green Apple
Orly - Gumdrop
China Glaze - For Audrey
Nicole by OPI - Justin Bieber's My Lifesaver
H & M - Bella's Choice
( different angle, and slightly different lighting )
Starting with Essie's Mint Green Apple,
they are all the same shade, each one just mildly
darker than the previous,
you get to My Lifesaver
All colors are blue base, while this one is green based.
I'm thrilled that I got this, it is such a classic 1950's mint green
it reminds me of MAC's Peppermint Patty,
and I really wish I had it to compare to MyLifesaver
The application is fantastic as with most Nicole polishes.
the polish is smooth and dense,
and I could have left it with a single coat,
but out of habit, gave it two.
These polishes now have the same flat brush that
Sally Hansen's newer polishes carry.
None of the other colors impressed me,
but I'm sure that Bieber fans will gobble these
up regardless of the color.
I'm glad I snagged this one before they are all gone.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
