Swatch Comparison - Grassy Greens (featuring Orly Fresh)

Hey!

Continuing with my comparison swatches for the Orly Happy Go Lucky Collection, today I'll be comparing the grassy green cream - Orly Fresh - with some other similar shades from my stash.

You can find my original review and swatches of all 4 shades from this collection here.



Keep reading for the comparison!

Well it looks like we're 0 for 3 with dupes for colours in this collection. However, we're doing a little better with the grassy greens because a few of these come close to being dupes for Orly Fresh.

OPI Green-wich Village is definitely the most similar to Fresh with the only real difference being that it's a smidge darker. The same goes for Nicole by OPI One Time Lime which is darker than both Fresh and Green-wich Village, but still a similar shade.

Sally Hansen Green with Envy is the most different from the rest in that it has a strong yellow-chartreuse base while the others are straight up greens.

I know that China Glaze Entourage is a shimmer so it didn't have a chance of being a dupe but I thought that the base colour might be similar to that of Fresh but that didn't turn out to be the case. It's gorgeous though, right?

Overall, I think that if you have either OPI Green-wich Village or Nicole by OPI One Time Lime, you don't really need Orly Fresh. They're not true dupes but they're similar enough that having both or all 3 isn't really necessary. Plus, as I said in my original review, the formula of Fresh was a bit disappointing, so both Green-wich Village and One Time Lime are better in that respect.

However, Orly Fresh is brighter than both Green-wich Village and One Time Lime so if you've been looking for a bright grassy green, you still might want to give this a shot, even if you have the other two.

What do you guys think? Are any of these shades close enough to Fresh to deter you from picking up yourself?
