Orange Week Day 5: Sonia Kashuk and A Comparison!

Hey guys!

Day 5 of Orange! The polishes I have today are probably technically oranges but... they are coral leaning reddish colors so I'm sticking them with oranges, lol.

Sonia Kashuk Hot Pursuit is a bright coral/almost red orange. I've not used a lot of SK polishes, but the few that I have used were easy to work with and who can resist bright spring/summer colors? Not I!

This is 2 coats, no top coat.

Now, a comparison! I recently acquired the delicious Cult Nails Captivated and was like "ohhhhhh my gosh so pretty!" As I was completing my wheel swatching project a few weeks back, I pulled this Icing polish out of my Helmer and realized it was very close to the Cult Nails polish. I decided to see how close. 

Index and Ring: Icing
Middle and Pinky: Cult Nails

Clearly they are just about identical. However, I would always spend a few more dollars and get the Cult Nails polish. Why?

This is why! I have several bottles from Icing that do this and no amount of screwing the cap back on and trying again will make it work. For the record, it is a pain in the butt to apply polish with that little nub of a handle.... 

So Cult Nails wins. For their bottle, for their customer service, and because Maria is a gem! :-)

Talk to you soon!
