Good afternoon! I have another comparison post for you, maybe we can make this a Thursday thing? This time, it is with minty pastel greens. We have Zoya Tiana (from the Zoya Delight Collection), OPI That’s Hula-rious! (from the OPI Hawaii Collection), and Nicole by OPI I Shop Mintage (from the Nicole by OPI 2014 Colors). I did a quick side by side on instagram a little while back of the Zoya and OPI, but I decided to add a third color for my full post. Let’s take a look below at how they compare!
They look very similar in the bottles, don’t they? However, there were some differences on the nail wheel. Zoya Tiana and OPI That’s Hula-rious! were opaque in two coats. Nicole by OPI I Shop Mintage needed a third to cover any lighter patches. (Note: in my original swatch posts, I said I needed a third coat on my regular nails for the Zoya and may have needed a third for the OPI. I was probably more generous with the coats on a nail wheel because I wouldn’t have pooling around the cuticles on a nail wheel. That being said, I applied all three the same way and a third was needed for the Nicole with the generous coats used.)
The Zoya is the brightest, with the OPI a close second. The Nicole by OPI is a darker, dustier mint.
Which would you choose if you could only buy one? Or do you already have one or more of these? Do you have a favorite? Thanks so much for reading, I hope this was helpful! Do you have any other comparison requests? I will do my best to compare anything you need if I have the polishes still in my collection. Please comment below and let me know!
