Orly Meet Me Under The Mistletoe versus China Glaze Emerald Sparkle

On Saturday I showed you my swatch of Orly Meet Me Under The Mistletoe (MMUTM). A few of you wanted me to compare it with China Glaze Emerald Sparkle (ES). So here we go :) These two greens arre just perfect for Christmas but they are different. The first difference is the color.
As you can see from my swatches China Glaze is lighter and more green. The second difference is the finish and the third is opacity. China Glaze needs only two coats but Orly looks better with three. I think that all the green lovers out there should have both of these as they are different enough to own both.

  2. They're both gorgeous! I think I might actually like the Orly more, though, which is nice because it's easier to find. :)

  13. Hi! I had a question. How do you get such good quality photos? What kind of camera and/or lighting do you use? My images are kinda crappy. . .
