(link to scrangie's post). If you don't know L'oreal bought out Essie so this is probably why they put out such similar colours. I wanted Greenport from that Essie collection for the longest time, but for whatever reasons, I passed on ordering it online and didn't ever find it stores cause it sold out so quickly. These polishes though, for only $5.99 each at Rexall/ Pharma Plus this week (not sure if that's the regular price) are almost identical, so it's really great to pick up these up if you don't have the Essie colours.
These JUST appeared in Canada, I was looking for them forever, so I was so happy to finally find them! Cause they are gorgeous! I heard these are a nightmare to apply, but frankly, Essie... your polishes are always a disaster for me, so I couldn't imagine these being all that terrible. I prefer my polishes to be more on the thick side anyway, I can't stand applying the first coat and you can hardly see it, these applied fine for me. All swatches are 2 coats with basecoat.
If you get these, you gotta get all 3, they are beautiful as a set. The names of these however, are pretty lame, not memorable at all. I am going to refer to them as greenport dupe, sag harbour dupe and shelter island dupe. I can't seem to remember these names at all.
