NOTD and an interesting comparison

As I was getting ready to remove my Acoustic Azure and Heartbreaker mani from a few days ago, I realized I had other polishes that were the same blue/green as this combo.  I pulled out China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic and Rimmel Mania...

On my index and ring fingers are the 3 coats Acoustic Azure+ Heartbreaker, middle finger is 3 coats Mania, pinkie 3 coats Rodeo Fanatic.

Hmm...  hard to tell the difference, isn't it??  Mania has a bit more green flash to it, and Rodeo Fanatic seems a bit more blue, but very close!!

Now on to the NOTD.  I received this in my first MUA swap.  It is Cover Girl Nail Slicks Mint Sorbet.  The application was a bit of a pain, and it is really sheer- I lost track of how many coats this took, and I can still see VNL.  This was in the dwindling sunlight....

And below is natural light in my living room.

Not quite sure how I feel about this one, I think it may be too yellow for my skin tone....  I will probably change it tomorrow- Mr. Ski and I may have a date!

Until Later,

Wow they do look really alike! And I'm not a big fan of green, but I think that mint green looks just fine on you :)

Thanks. I love green, but I think this one may either be saved for layering or my toes.... : )
