Sunday Similarities: Green Jellies, Wet n Wild Contact High & Sinful Colors Irish Green
Hello everyone! Happy Memorial Day to my U.S. followers! I want to express my heartfelt thanks to those folks (and their families) who have served in the military. It's a great sacrifice they've given for this country and I'm grateful to those who give their time, and too often life or limb, to serve and protect.
I've got a quick Sunday Similarities post for you all today with a couple of bright green jelly polishes. Whilst strolling through my local Walgreens the other day, I noticed the Wet n Wild Summer 2014 Limited Edition All Access Beauty Megalast display. They have introduced a rainbow of bright colors for the summer and I picked up a couple including Contact High which, when I got it home, I realized looks a lot like Sinful Colors Irish Green. I figured a comparison post was in order :)
In the bottle, you can see the obvious similarity. Both are bright, grassy green jelly polishes. At first glance, I thought they were exact dupes.
But when I applied 4 coats of each, I discovered that Contact High is a few shades darker than Irish Green. Irish Green also has a bit more yellow to it. They are very similar in formula, sheerness, and finish (no top coat in these photos). Contact High is a Limited Edition and Irish Green tends to show up around St. Patrick's Day, so if one or the other isn't available to you, I don't think you HAVE to have both. But at $1.99 each? Too good of a deal to pass up!
Thanks so much for reading!
