China Glaze ‘Body & Sol’ – Comparisons

See the original review post here: China Glaze ‘Body & Sol’ Collection

********

I’m adding in a new type of post to go with my reviews! From now on I want to do my best to make sure my review posts are followed up with a comparisons posts (I loved the idea from Manigeek with her Comparison posts. That’s where I was mainly inspired as well as others on Instagram – specifically @polish.lab.rat and @clmck1620). I went through all of my drawers and pulled out any sort of similar color – then showed the top 3 comparisons (if there were that many) on my nails! If it’s a super common color with a lot of close duplicates, I’ll expand it out to show more with swatch sticks.

I have so many polishes now that it’s only fair I start comparing them! I know it’s always helpful for me to see, and others love to see it as well! I’ll be mainly showing mainstream brands – OPI, Essie, China Glaze, Orly & Zoya – as I have the most of those and it’ll be easier to go through.

And if you ever have specific comparisons you’re curious about, feel free to let me know! If I have the polish I’ll definitely make sure to put up photos, both on here and on my Instagram.

This comparison post is for the China Glaze ‘Body & Sol’ collection – see the official review post up at the top as well. I ended up only finding comparisons for 5 of the 8 shades, and none were exact dupes this time.

Let’s get right into the comparisons!

I’ll be showing pictures of the bottles, and then nail swatches.

Up first for the shade ‘Beaches & Toes’. From left to right: OPI ‘Icelanded a Bottle of OPI’; China Glaze ‘Beaches & Toes’; China Glaze ‘Dope Taupe’; Orly ‘Cashmere Crisis’.

BeachesToes-Comp-Bottle

These all looked much closer in the bottle, but once on the nails, you can see they’re not too close at all. They’re also all creams, while ‘Beaches & Toes’ has that beautiful sparkle.

Up next for the shade ‘Beach Buff’ against Zoya’s ‘Rue’. Surprisingly, this was the closest nude shade I found for it.

‘Rue’ is just a touch lighter and more pink toned, and ‘Beach Buff’ also has that beautiful shimmer.

Next, for the shade ‘Skinny Tipping’. This was the closest comparison I ended up finding, but you’ll still see they’re pretty different. From left to right: Essie ‘Suit & Tied’; China Glaze ‘Skinny Tipping’; Essie ‘Mamba’; and OPI ‘A Great Opera-tunity’.

SkinnyTipping-Comps-Bottles

As you can see, ‘Skinny Tipping’, ‘Mamba’, and ‘A Great Opera-tunity’ are all int he same color family. ‘Mamba is very close’ but I would say it has a touch more coolness to it, and ‘Skinny Tipping’ has the shimmer throughout.

Next, comparing ‘Tan-do Attitude’ to Essie’s ‘Teacup Half Full’.

TanDoAttitude-Comps-Bottles

They’re in the same family, but definitely not dupes. ‘Teacup Half Full’ is darker overall, and has smaller gold shimmer.

Last but certainly not least, I wanted to compare some shades to ‘Copper-tunist’. Left to right: OPI ‘Sweet Carmel Sunday’; China Glaze ‘Copper-tunist’; China Glaze ‘What’s Up Bittercup’; and Zoya ‘Cinnamon’.

Coppertunist-Comps-Bottles

In my review post I said ‘Copper-tunist’ was the least unique color of the collection, but surprisingly I didn’t have any dupes! I thought for sure I would have more colors closer to this, but I guess it’s staying in my collection for now!

So overall, I didn’t find any dupes in my collection! I actually really enjoyed this – it was fun seeing how all of these shades compared to my collection. It also showed me that all of these are unique so obviously it’s fine that I keep them all and add them in (I told you they’re all different, I need them all duh).

Can’t wait to continue comparing!
