Swatch Comparison Sunday - Turquoise part II

Happy Sunday! 
As I said last week, I'm going to try to make Swatch Comparison Sunday a thing on my blog and so far so good! 
Today I have another post of Turquoise polishes because well... I have SOO many polishes of this color family. 

Here's a photo of my four polishes I compared.

So there I have (left to right)

Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh Mint
Essie Where's My Chauffeur?
China Glaze At Vase Value
Zoya Blu

Here's how they looked on my nails.

I was actually surprised how different these polishes all were. I thought maybe they'd be a bit similar but it turns out, nope!

Let me give you a short rundown of each color, starting with I Need A Refresh Mint. For this swatch I used just two coats. This polish was on the thicker side so I probably could have used one coat. This polish is definitely more blue, and contrary to the name, not mint at all.

Next is Where's My Chauffeur? I'm not even sure if you can buy this polish anymore since it was part of the Winter collection like two years ago but I swatched it anyway! Shown is just two coats. Like most Essie polishes, the formula was great. This polish is more green leaning and in my opinion, the perfect Turquoise. 

Third is At Vase Value (polish I'm holding) This polish is somewhat streaky but definitely manageable. For this swatch I used three thin coats. I absolutely love this polish. It's perfect.

Lastly is Blu. I use this polish so often! It's such a beautiful color. Perhaps it doesn't quite fit in with this comparison but I thought it was good to see how At Vase Value compared to it since they're both light blues. Obviously Blu is much more blue and not Turquoise at all. For this swatch I used just two thin coats.
 Oh, and none of these swatches are shown with top coat!

There's my swatches from last week so you can see how all eight colors compare. 

Oh and you can read last week's post here.

Well I hope this was helpful!

Until next time,
