China Glaze Below Deck Comparison

Here is my first comparison post with polishes from the China Glaze Anchors Away Collection. I am starting with Below Deck (BD), which you wanted to see most. I tried to find polishes as close as I could. Those were Sephora by OPI Metro Chic (MCh) and Essie Merino Cool (MC). I also included H&M Grey Sky (GS) which was asked for in the comments but that is way lighter. All the polishes I swatched were two coats. As you can see no dupes here. I like Below Deck most, it really is a very pretty shade. Must have!

  4. Thanks for the comparison! Weird how they're different but really close in color. I've heard Below Deck is a close color to Chanelesque.

  17. Those are all pretty similar. I'm trying not to buy polishes that are this close to each other. I can happily skip Below Deck. Thank for the comparisons.
