Comparison: OPI Jade Is The New Black vs Essie Going Incognito

I originally only had Jade Is The New Black, and shortly after I ordered Going Incognito cos it looked much darker on Scrangie’s swatches. But when I received it, I was wondering why it looked so much like Jade Is The New Black! However this was only from the look of the bottle colour. I swatched it on my nail wheel and realized that they’re actually really different!

Pointer & Ring: OPI Jade Is The New Black
Middle & Pinky: Essie Going Incognito

Jade Is The New Black (shall call it JitNB from now on cos the name is too long zzz) is a warm shade of grassy green and Going Incognito (GI) is on the cooler side. GI is also a few tones darker than JitNB. Both shades are done in three coats. GI required only two coats to be opaque but I did three so that it’s consistent on all nails. JitNB needed the three coats because it is semi-jelly, hence it’s a little translucent. The good thing about jelly texture is that they dry super glossy! GI is definitely a creme though since it’s so opaque but it also dried pretty glossy 😀

Hope you enjoyed my comparison post! I’ll definitely do more in time to come 😀
