I really like RBL's newest blogger collection. I entered at the time with a mallard duck inspired green glitter fest, but I'm so glad that the submissions that won did, because I think they're all awesome and original. BUT. I can't afford $20 a bottle plus $19 shipping. Super nice though they are, that is quite a lot of money, and I'd honestly rather spend it on
So, I have been on a mission to try and find polishes with a similar 'feel', if you will. Scrangie swatched some comparable blues with IKB 2012 and has made me very tempted to buy Orly Royal Navy, which is supposedly a pretty close match, despite the shimmer. I've also picked up Nails Inc Baker Street (which I saw on Beyoncé and loved...don't judge), which will be up later in the week.
For your viewing pleasure today though is Models Own Indian Ocean from the new Beetlejuice collection, over CG Four Leaf Clover. I really liked it - even though it's nothing like Aqua Lily, because FLC for some reason went really green with the Models Own over it (it's still turquoise around the edges where it didn't get coated...weird, given the MO is blue-based).
Gorgeous, but I wanted to see if I could get a bit closer to the inspiration. So I took the ring nail off and tried it again over CG For Audrey. I love how the orange/pink shimmer shows up over the green, and the pink/purple over the blue, although both are more complex and multifaceted in the flesh. Very cool. I kept this on a week, I was so enamoured with it, and it wore like a champ. £3.50 nail polish for the win.
