LCN comparisons

Hey there :)

I wrote in my last post that I've got some comparison swatches for you and here they are: 
I did all comparison swatches with the Revlon scented polishes from this spring/summer- thanks again, Karen for getting me these :)
Revlon Gum Drop vs. LCN Fleur d'amour
(sorry about the smudge on my middle finger)
The base color of GD and Fd'a are the same, only Fd'a has got a silvery shimmer in it- they both applied well and Gum Drop gets a little plus because it's scented when it dried :)
I used 3 coats on both.

Next is Cotton Candy vs. French Deluxe:
I first thought those were dupes or at least dupe-is colors but after doing the swatches I am completly wrong, let's see for yourself:
See? Cotton Candy is more pink than FD. French Deluxe is a pastel peach- and I think both would go on well for a french or american manicure. CC took 3 coats to be opaque and FD 4 coats.
There is also a hint of gold shimmer in the bottle of Cotton Candy which sadly didn't translate to the nail.

Last but not least: Grape Icy vs. Tropical Tulip
Also one of the polishes where I thought that they would be twins or at least siblings color-wise. Boy, was I wrong...
Grape Icy is lilac-colored whereas TT is an eggplant-creme-purple. Grape Icy has also has gold shimmer in it and it smells good :D
I used two coats each.

The winners of these three battles are:
  • I'd call it a tie between Gum Drop and Fleur d'amour- both are great and whereas Gum Drop has got its unique scent, Fd'a has the glossiness.
  • Cotton Candy would win the second battle because my yellow-ish skintone looks more yellow when I put French Deluxe on.
  • And grape Icy wins the 3rd battle. It smells nice and  has a great shimmer in it.
 Overall I'm really happy with all of these shades- some have earned a little star in my polish list for their smell, some for their glossiness ;)

 There are polishes in this post who were kindly sent to me for reviewing purposes, please visit my disclosure policy for more details.
