CR 53 Swatches and Comparison with OPI The One That Got Away
I might just start numbering these post titles. They’re getting longer, not shorter! 😀
Here is the simply named 53, from CR / Cosmetic Color. This is a berry fuchsia pink with silvery shimmer. Very pretty, I probably walked past it 5 times at the $2+ shop – and then I saw my neighbour wearing it. I went ‘want!’ She went ‘here, I got you one!’ She rocks. That was her and her daughter, they’re good people.
I also have OPI The One That Got Away – from the Katy Perry range – and thought it looked similar… so put them side by side.
Not that similar at all, once out of the bottle though!
The OPI is sheerer – this is three coats to the CR 2 coats. The OPI also is a lot more complicated – the shimmer looks like a lighter pink, not silver, and it’s slightly duochrome. The color itself reads a lot deeper on the nail than the CR. In fact, it makes the CR one look really flat – but #53 is a nice colour, very foil-y and shimmery in the sun. Could totally justify owning both if you didn’t already, or you felt you needed to for some reason ;D Dry time on both was excellent, and wear time is very similar. (eg tip wear and light chipping by next day.)
