Red Crelly Comparisons – swatches
Turns out I have 4 red creme/jelly nail polishes (crellies, I like to smoosh words together). That’s heaps, I think, and definitely enough for a comparison!
So… here they are.
From right to left:
- Little finger/pinky = OPI So Hot It Berns (2 coats no top coat)
- Ring finger = L.A. Colors Cranberry Red (2 coats no top coat)
- Middle finger = Miki No.8 (3 coats with top coat, would have the exact same finish and depth of colour as the others without it though)
- Pointer/index finger = Depend 036 (2 coats no top coat)
The LA Colors stands out by miles as being much darker and heading towards burgandy-ville compared to the others, that much is obvious. OPI (little finger) is a very classic red, but I would call this one ‘blue based’ compared to the rest, as it has that depth and cool tone that the other two don’t.
Of the other two, I would say the Depend polish is a true red, crayon or primary red. The Miki definitely has a bit more of an orange tone to it.
So, no dupes, and I like them ALLLL! I realise that the Miki and the Depend look very similar in these photos, so I took a bottle shot to show that difference between them a bit clearer.
Have a great day!
