Essie After School Boy Blazer and Maybelline Colorama 103

torek, januar 14, 2014

Two navies for you today. Anyone who's not a nail polish enthusiast would most likely regard these two as dupes, however there are differences between them. 

Essie After School Boy Blazer is a dark, inky navy with a cream finish. It's superbly pigmented, though thicker than other Essies I own. One coat is enough for full opacity, however, I apply two on nails where the first coat is uneven.

Maybelline Colorama 103 is another navy, but one that is leaning slightly to purple and has a frosty finish. It's less vibrant than most navies I've seen due to a grey hue. The pigmentation is much weaker than Essie ASBB's. The first coat is sheer and it needs two or even three coats for full opacity.

Maybelline Colorama 103 :

Maybelline 103 is lighter than Essie, however, from far away, the two look very close. I also don't notice a difference in how long they last, but then all nail polishes last super long on me. I believe Essie's ASBB was a limited edition, but if you still find one, I'd highly recommend it as the formula and the colour are amazing. You might like Maybelline more if you're looking for something that doesn't look almost black.

 Have a great day!

    1. Iz jesenske LE je. Nekako dvomim da je še kakšen v naključnem DM-u, čeprav je možno. Sem ga kupila že mesec nazaj :)

  5. A mi posodiš tvoje nohte? Jaz imam srečo, če mi lak zdrži 2 dni, pa naj gre za najcenejši lak ali tistega najdražjega. Sicer sta mi pa oba všeč, ker je to itak eden mojih naj odtenkov modre. :)

    1. :D. Ne vem zakaj imam tako močne in trde nohte, očitno imam srečo. Se mi nikoli ne cepijo niti lomijo. Mami ima pa ene take nohte kot ti, včasih se jih kar odlupi lak po enem dnevu, pa pri opravilu, ki ga istočasno delava.
      Essencev Deep Blue Sea je bil moj najljubši temno moder lak. Škoda, da je šel iz prodaje :/
