For Audrey vs. Greenport

Wow..I haven't posted in so long! I just finished all my midterms last week...actually wait...I think I have another one coming up on the 22nd. *sigh* Anyway, I should be back to somewhat regular blogging now until my crazy schoolwork gets to me again. :'(

I have promised to take a comparison picture of China Glaze For Audrey and Essie Greenport a really looong time ago and here it is finally! XD

Index and Ring: China Glaze For Audrey
Middle and Pinky: Essie Greenport

Turns out they're a lot more different than I thought they were. Greenport is a few shades darker than For Audrey and has more green in it. I guess they just look similar in the bottles. Both were opaque in three coats with no major application issues. : )

Different enough to own both?... YES, if you like both colours! :D

  3. I have both of them. They both look beautiful on you. I wore Greenport awhile ago and I couldn't stop looking at my nails all day. It was crazy! It just really looked so good on me. I can't say that about many polishes. Just went really well with my skintone. Glad your almost done with all your midterms. Hope you do well.

  5. Oh my gosh, For Audrey looks amazing on you! I have no idea why, but that color makes my hands look kind of... yellow and sickly? I guess it's not my color. Totally looks awesome on you though! Wear it for me, please. Mine sits untouched in my closet. :)

  10. I'm in love with this shade of green, and finally released here in Brazil a polish with the same color of Greenport! But still I long to have For Audrey ...

  11. thanks for that comparison, I've just bought For Audrey and had a lemming for Greenport, but to me they're just too close to own both...now the question is: what am I going to replace greenport with in my next order? ^_^

  13. Kae- Me too! I love all these turquoisey colours! They're so unique compared to the boring sheer pinks. Lol! :)

    giledangel- I'm loving For Audrey too the more I look at it! : )

    Lucy- I glad you found a colour that you love so much. I'm not sure if Greenport looks good on me though. I think For Audrey might match my skintone more. Hahaha! :D

    nihrida- My pleasure! I was surprised that they looked so different when swatched. : )

    Asami- Aww..thank you so much Asami! I'm sorry For Audrey didn't work for you. I will wear this more often...just for you.^^ In fact, I think I like it more than Greenport. : )

    Jodes- I agree! They are definitely different enough to own both! : )

    Pinkginger- Thank you! You should really get Greenport, it's a gorgeous colour! XD

    Myrna- I'm glad I was able to help you out. : ) And oh my gosh...you got Greenport for such a great deal too! Too bad we don't have Ulta here in Canada. : (

    Mighty Lambchop- Yes you do! It's a beautiful polish..especially when you love FA so much. :D

    Camila- I'm in love with all these mint greens of late too! They're so unique and different. And For Audrey is definitely a must-have! :D

    chocaddict- One of the new China Glaze glitters! I'm on a no-buy right now so no orders for me. I've been lemming those for the longest time too! *sigh*

    Solveig- Me too! I thought they were much more similar. XD

  14. I have seen Audrey on some other blogs and a few YouTube channels. I just love the color and have not been able to find a blue like this. I am going to have to order it from somewhere, I just love it!
