MAC Peppermint Patti vs. China Glaze For Audrey Nail Varnish/Polish

I received quite a few comments from individuals whom believed that these two colors are similar. So, I thought I would photograph them side by side.

Peppermint Patti is a true mint green, whereas, For Audrey is Tiffany blue.
Peppermint Patti requires 3 coats of thick polish in order to not appear streaky. For Audrey you could get away with one. China Glaze polish is just better overall!

Interesting content.

Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.

You don't like YSL? For me they are the best quality. OK! They don't have these colors but they have others really pretty. OK! they cost ...$ but they are great and the LUNA something is a lovely nude colour and believe me I hate sparkling in nails, but this....

yeah i agree not that similar at all. To be honest, i only own one mac polish and will never buy another - think the consistency is really watery and once you get those 3 coats on and get them looking perfect ..... they chip within minutes!! Nightmare. not for me x

I love For Audrey it's such a pretty blue!!! And I just love CG application!!! Sometimes all I need is 1 coat and I'm good :)

do you know if many of the YSL counters give out GWPs? I never get anything free and thats some awesome stuff you got! The bag is so nice and big, I need a big makeup bag.
