Since these things tend to get easily lost in the other threads, I thought maybe we should have a thread specifically for comparisons (i know, like we need another SOG thread to follow? LOL). I know for me though, when I'm doing a comparison I'm often not sure which thread to post it in, and as i said they tend to get lost in the shuffle.
Without further ado, here is the first one for the thread.
thrbuddhas send me a swatch stick of LeChat Queen Fierce to compare with Gelish My Forbidden Love.
They are similar, but definitely different.
Gelish MFL is red with a purple undertone to it, but it is definitely red.
I would actually say Queen Fierce is more of a dark purple base with red shimmer. It almost reminded me of Geleration Notorious, which is a dark brown/black base with red shimmer. I will have to play around with maybe layering MFL over a dark purple and see if I can dupe Queen Fierce before I buy it, LOL. When I do I will post swatches if it looks close.
Here are some swatches of these two together, and also with Geleration notorious.
As always, there are more swatches on my pics site.
TL: Gelish Ocean Wave = RCM Drop Dead Gorgeous
BL: Gelish Caution
TR: Geleration Midnight Moonlight
MR: RCM Midnight Affair = Gelsih After Dark
BR: OPI Russian Navy = Gelish Deep Sea
They one thing that doesn't translate well in this picture is that RCM Midnight Affair appears darker when worn. Since it is a jelly, the white backdrop lightens it considerably. I also posted a picture of RCM Midnight Affair (3 coats) on nails to help.
