Battle Of The Taupe Nail Polishes: Swatches and Comparison (I'm obsessed!)

Monday, April 29, 2013

Raise your hand if you have that one favorite color you just can't seem to get enough off. With me, that's taupe. I love taupe nail polishes, I think they can make your fingers look so pretty and classy and lady like. Now, I realise I maybe have too much taupe nail polishes. I have 8. 

Yes, I know what you're thinking! 'WHAT? 8 taupe polishes? Why would you need that?'
Well, the only answer I could think of is: they're different?

I decided to do a compairison on all these nail polishes, to show you guys how they all look and which ones are my favorite. All the swatches are taken in natural light and are 2 coats.

As you can see, these are all pretty different once you put them on. Essie's Chinchilly is the most grey of the bunch, O.P.I.'s You Don't Know Jacques is the most brown. Hema is the only polish with a metallic finish, it's pretty cool! Essie's Lady like is the most pinky/purple. Eyeko's Posh Polish is pretty dark, a bit darker than it appears to be in the bottle. H&M's Taupe is a gorgeous color, but the quality is terrible. I wore this once and it was chipped after 15 minutes. 15! Kiko's 319 is also pretty dark with a tiny, tiny hint of purple in it. Yves Rocher's Taupe Rosé also has a little rosy brown tint to it.

It's funny to see how many different colors there are available and they're all so different. I think there is a right color for everyone out there, you just have to find it ;)

My favorites? Hema's 004, Essie Lady like, and Yves Rocher's Taupe Rosé

What's your favorite one?

  1. THANKKKKKKK YOUUUUUUUU!! I cannot tell you how thankful I am with this comparison, the Kiko one is the love of my life, haha ^^. And I was looking into blindly buying the Chinchilly one because I thought it was pretty similar, since it's a little on the grey side I just saved 10 bucks, lol.
    I'm also crazy about taupes, finally someone understands me, my mom says I look like I have bruised nails, go figure.
    Bye bye
