Turquoise blue comparison

I have a bunch of turquoise blue nail polishes because, as I've mentioned so many time before, my favorite color is blue/turquoise/teal (anything along those lines). So here's a comparison of a few similar ones:

From left: Sinful Colors Love Nails, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Marine Scene, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue Streak, Sinful Colors Gorgeous

In the bottle, these all look really different, but on the nail, they look a bit more similar:

In the shade:

The shade picture is pretty color-accurate. The colors on each nail are in the same order as the bottle pic. Each one was three coats, but all of them needed a fourth to get rid of VNL.

Sinful Colors Love Nails is the most blue-leaning, and Sinful Colors Gorgeous is the most green-leaning. Sally Hansen Marine Scene is more blue than Sally Hansen Blue Streak, which is more green. Love Nails is definitely the most vibrant. Blue Streak had the best application, and Marine Scene, being an Xteme Wear polish, had the worst application (read my rant about how why Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes suck in the middle of this post). All of them dried to the same shimmery finish, though Gorgeous sometimes looks a little metallic.

All of these are gorgeous (obviously! they're turquoise!!! ;D) but my favorite has to be Love Nails because of how vibrant it is.

Do you like turquoise polishes? Which one is your favorite?

Sinful Colors nail polishes are available at drugstores for about $2.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polishes are available at drugstores for about $3.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polishes are available at drugstores for about $5.

Smile for awesome turquoise polishes!! :D
