Purchased – No Affiliate Links

Wet n Wild Fergie Cabo Cruise

During the summer, I posted about the Wet n Wild Fergie Summer collection, which includes many different types of items including several nail polishes (note there’s also another nail polish only Fergie summer collection out).  I purchased one of the nail polishes, Cabo Cruise, and it is GORGEOUS.

I saw this around all summer but haven’t seen it lately  . . . sorry about that :/ (I found this post in my drafts folder a little while ago – I wish I had published it this summer when the polish was still available!)

Into The Blue // New Wave // My Buoyfriend // Sail La Vie

A few days ago, I posted about Sinful Colors’s new Sail La Vie collection – I have display photos here. Note that this colIection is called Sail La Vie at Walgreens and Ahoy There! at Rite Aid – both collections have the same polishes. bought all four of the blue shades (plus Sunburnt from the Pool Side Polish Collection, swatched here).  I have quick swatches of the blue shades for you now.

Dupe Alert: Sinful Colors Endless Blue & Nails, Inc. Baker St.

Purchased
Dupes - Swatches - Baker St - Endless Blue

Baker St. on the left, Endless Blue on the right

I think you can tell where I’m going with this post based on the photo.

So, I bought Sinful Colors Endless Blue from the new Sinful Colors Buff to Bright Collection (more information on that collection here). I bought it partly because I am loving blues right now, and partly because I was curious to see if it was a good dupe for Nails, Inc. Baker St. Note that Baker St. is also duped by Essie Butler Please and quite similar to Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, but the Sinful Colors is the least expensive of all.

Here’s another close up comparison, this time with flash:

Baker St // Endless Blue

In my opinion, they are excellent dupes; the only different I notice is that Nail, Inc. Baker St. dries to a satin / low-gloss finish and Sinful Colors Endless Blue dries to a high-gloss finish (both swatches are completely dry in the photo). Both have good formulas; I did find the Sinful Colors just a touch thicker than I prefer, so I thinned it just a little bit. It is useable as bought.

And finally, a quick swatch of Endless Blue on the nail:

Overall, I would definitely recommend Endless Blue – both as a lovely polish in it’s own right, and as a $2 dupe for the more expensive Nails, Inc. Baker St.

NYC Boat Basin Polish – Swatch of the Day

NYC Boat Basin Swatch

NYC Boat Basin Long Wearing Nail Polish

NYC has recently released some new shades in both it’s $1 Long-Wearing nail polish line and it’s $2 Quick Dry nail polish line; I’ve swatched a few of them now (see them all here), and I think Boat Basin, a saturated blue, is my favorite.

Here’s a comparison with two similar-ish shades; I was particularly wondering how it would compare to Nails, Inc. Baker St.

NYC Boat Basin Comparison Swatches

OPI Dating a Royal // NYC Boat Basin // Nails, Inc. Baker St.

OPI Dating a Royal is closest, but a bit dustier and darker; the difference is more noticeable in person.  The NYC is actually my favorite of the three polishes – I just love the slightly dusty, intensely saturated deep-bright blue.  Nails, Inc. Baker St. is just as saturated, but much lighter.

Note also that Nails, Inc. Baker St., Essie Butler Please, and Sally Hansen Pacific Blue are all very close; you can see comparisons of those three polishes here.

One final picture – this polish is just so gorgeous!

I don’t see anywhere to purchase this polish online, but it should be widely available anywhere that stocks NYC makeup.
