Polish Battle: Blue's Brother vs. Teal The Cows Come Home

Hey Ladies! It's been a long while since I've posted! Horrible, I know. What can I say... School is evil and I'm trying to win my love back! (Mari will probably step in now and comment on my corniness!)

I've had this post semi-saved for a while and I figured it was time to put it out there.

This is a comparison of Catrice's "Blue's Brother" and OPI's "Teal The Cows Come Home." I know it's not easy to get Catrice in the US. I had to get mine through a swap with a lovely blogger. So it's nice when you can find a dupe or a similar color for something you can't get.

I did 3 coats of each polish. No base coat and no topcoat.

In my simple mind these are both an aqua type teal blue with shimmer. It's funny because I couldn't tell them apart in person... Yet in pictures you can see a slight difference. Blue's Brother is slightly darker than Teal The Cows Come Home.

Application was great for both and I felt that they had the same consistency. 

End result: If you aren't really picky, you could use Teal The Cows Come Home to feed that need if you can't get your hands on Blue's Brothers.

Hope you gals enjoy! I hope to be back with more soon!

I prefer Blue's Brothers, which is surprising for me because OPI is love.

I like Blue's Brother better...it looks like it might have some subtle greens shimmer in it! But I love the name Teal the Cows Come Home...probs because my mom says that all the the time (well without the teal part).

Great post, they are definitely close enough where you do not need both :)
