Smoky Lavender Comparison

It just recently dawned on me that despite my efforts to not have dupes; I still managed to BUY ALL THE SMOKY LAVENDERS!
I decided that I MUST do a comparison post immediately-if not sooner.
I will say that none were really dupes.  RBL Forgiveness and Elevation Polish Tavan Bogd were the closest to each other, but Tavan Bogd was a shade lighter.
Insouciant was the darkest of them all and also had the added shimmer to it. The other three are straight creams.  As far as application went, A England outshone them all with its buttery, perfect application; but all of them applied well.  My opinion is you need them all if you are like me and can't get enough of smoky lavs.
Here is more of a skittle mani with some smoky purples/lavenders.
This was my first time trying on a Contrary Polish, and I have to say I was blown away by the amazing formula. It went on like butter!  The shimmer in it was very evident as well.  A England Guinevere has been my go-to color when I want something soothing to wear and is one of the few polishes I have worn more than once.  It is good to know I have a "back-up" of RBL Forgiveness when I need it.
You can find any of these shops on the page tab at the top of my blog labeled, "Indie Nail Polish Shop Links."
